#AMonthOnFilm – A guilty pleasure

28—A guilty pleasure A giant bowl of super fudge brownie ice cream. I used to crave this a lot and “eat my feelings” with ice cream on a regular basis. Now I’m a little more aware of my feelings and what’s going on with me and don’t crave it quite so often and also tryContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – A guilty pleasure”

#AMonthOnFilm – From above

27—From above We don’t get out much anymore so the kids have resorted to some interesting forms of entertainment. Abigail played around on the keyboard for a while today so I took a picture from above. #amonthonfilm is a photo project with prompts hosted by two photographers on InstagramPhoto taken: June 27, 2020 For thisContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – From above”

#AMonthOnFilm – Water

26—Water As I try to cope with, cultivate a sense of safety and grow through severe mental health struggles and trauma responses it is one of my goals each day (among a few other things) to turn on this water and take a shower. In the not so distant past I was not capable ofContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Water”

#AMonthOnFilm – After dinner

25—After dinner We ate outside on this day. Burned our brush pile and roasted hot dogs over the fire and enjoyed an evening outside. It was so nice to accomplish some yard work and enjoy time together outside as a family. #amonthonfilm is a photo project with prompts hosted by two photographers on InstagramPhoto taken:Continue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – After dinner”

#AMonthOnFilm – Still life

24—Still life Tiny clump of dead lilacs from my small collection of dead, dried out plants laying on the sidewalk in evening light. I like dead things, plants can be just as interesting to me when they’re dead and dry as when they’re brightly blooming and full of life. I try to appreciate the beautyContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Still life”

#AMonthOnFilm – Through the doorway

23—Through the doorway Decided to take two shots—One of Ben and Abigail through the kitchen door playing a game for their 30 minutes together (Ben does something with each child individually for 30 minutes once each week) and one through the living room door looking outside at sunset. #amonthonfilm is a photo project with promptsContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Through the doorway”

#AMonthOnFilm – Self

22—Self Just a shot of myself wearing my NewSpring “faith moves mountains” shirt reflected in the big mirror on our bathroom door. Not fond of being captured with a camera and very slowly learning to see myself as part of God’s good creation—both inside and outside. My whole self has been on quite the journey,Continue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Self”

#AMonthOnFilm – A treasured possession

21—A treasured possession My wedding ring. It’s not worth a lot of money but it’s a reminder to me of Ben and my love for and commitment to each other, that God brought us together as friends who met at church. I am thankful to have my wedding ring after having a sudden weight gainContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – A treasured possession”

#AMonthOnFilm – Empty

20—Empty My empty Nalgene bottle. I try to drink 3 of these 32 ounce bottles of water each day. It has become such a habit I know about what time each day I will or will need to finish drinking the first 2 bottles to get in my regular amount. It helps me feel betterContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Empty”
