I haven't been this excited for a Monday in awhile, but this week is a very short school week: two days long in fact. Just today and tomorrow. Woo hoo. Does it make me sound superbly lazy to share with you how giddy I am over the fact that I don't have to make and pack 10 lunches (twins x two everything), or look for shoes while already running late, or brave the cold, dark, and rainy mornings to drive 10 blocks to school (because, yeah, i totally drive those 10 blocks every. day. even on bike or walk to school week). Well it's true I am very excited to bask in some lazy morning rituals and Wednesday morning can't get here fast enough - though when it does the next 4 days have my permission to slow way down.
So, it's here, my perception_collection round-up. It's a little late and a little on the skinnier-side than normal. But if you've been reading my blog, or read it last week I should say, you will know the last couple weeks were rough. Lauren, of Still+Life, my perception_collection partner in crime, has had a lot on her plate too, so we decided to just share one photo from each day for this go around. This was necessary but hard to do! There were so many amazing photos this time and only choosing one felt nearly impossible. With that I just chose the ones that immediately stood out to me while scrolling through. This was a great challenge. It's equally fun seeing new and familiar faces. We are thinking we might do another, shorter challenge in December, so if you missed this one, or two weeks is too long there should be another here in the works soon. Thanks to everyone who participated. I know, for me personally, this challenge was cathartic. Seeing other perspectives and lives and kindness and sense of community, sharing images that made me laugh and think and ooh and ah was just the perfect thing at just the right time.
