california. a p(re)view.

i flew home on saturday evening from a quick work trip to ca.
i was flipping through the photos from the few sessions i did while there.
(smiling the whole time.)

and this one jumped out at me.
my friend.
a beautiful mother.
laughing.
while her adorable girls do their thing.
this picture inspires me as a mom.
to be able to laugh in the midst of everything
is a gift.

when i saw it, i felt it encapsulated everything about my time there:

working with beautiful people.
sunny and cheery.
laughter.
connection.

i'm thankful i could go.
i'm thankful for clients.
i'm thankful for a job that i love.
