Traca Miller  A homeschooling mom of 3, married to a veterinarian who dragged me to the coast and said, "Come on! Just think of how great the photos will be..."

Over the past few months I have been admiring the work of @leajonesphoto and the way she has challenged herself to see things in a new way through her #mylifeindiptychs project.
Each year I like to take on a new creative project and this just seems like a good fit. It's simple and can be appropriate for film, digital, or (like here) even my phone. This past year has taught me that there are always two sides to everything; each situation can always offer a different perspective. .

Each trip around the sun somehow seems shorter as these kiddos get older. Another lost tooth, another pair of shoes outgrown, another swim season, another milestone, another year gone.
But not just any year; a year of road trips, an eclipse, a hurricane, and a beach covered with snow. A year of hard work, of tears amid destruction, of joy through grace, and a year of miracles. God is good and so was 2017.

This little girl had a "best day ever!" kind of day yesterday. She woke up to a winter wonderland! We moved to Rockport when she was 16 months old and she pretty much lives in flip-flops and a swim suit. So #itskindofabigdeal

Giving thanks after a day of friends and family. Giving thanks after a year of grace among grief. Giving thanks for a life of love and laughter. Giving thanks this day and every day.

Sunday on Mustang Island. Thank you, Port A, for the hospitality. Glad to see you coming around. .

So many times I have driven past a flag and not even given it a second glance. They are just a part of our culture, our daily landscape. I would honor them at football games and on holidays and say a quick prayer of thanks for those who have served. But after Harvey, when street signs and business were gone or unrecognizable, flags began to fly as people returned to Rockport. Beacons of color dotting our new landscape as symbols of resilience and strength. I know it doesn't compare to what our veterans have seen, but for the first time I understand what seeing those colors can do for a person's spirit; the pride, hope, and gratitude for our freedom. To all the men and women who have served beyond our borders and in my hometown, I am truly grateful. Thank you.

Happy #FilmFriday, y'all! The road between Cody, WY and Cooke City, Montana is one of the most beautiful drives in our country. It was made for #mediumformat film! Have a great weekend!

A little update to a space in the cottage since this may be our home for quite a while! (And, yes, I'm standing on something because we all know I can't reach this shelf!) I was talking with a group of moms about how we each have our own way of dealing with living in a post-Harvey Rockport. One mom found herself buying mustard that she didn't need simply because it was the last one on the shelf in the store. Another friend came to a play date and started cooking carrots because it felt like it had been so long since she had vegetables. Another mom keeps volunteering to help other families just to stay busy while her own destroyed home and property is held hostage by an insurance company that won't pay out. One friend put up her Christmas tree this week because she is determined to make her home a happy, beautiful place since everything outside of her walls looks like a war zone.
Whatever works, friends! You will find no judgment here when it comes to how we each navigate our new "normal".

I took this photo just before sunset on August 25th, knowing that hurricane Harvey was about to hit Rockport. The kids and I were hiking to Upper Falls, I had just gotten off the phone with Brodie, and each time I stopped to take a photo I would cry. It was just so amazingly beautiful! I felt so small standing on the brink of creation while Brodie was waiting on the brink of destruction; and I had nothing to do with either one. Never have I ever felt like shouting His glory while at the same time begging for His mercy. But I think that's how we are supposed to live each day: tears of awe at the sheer beauty and tears of supplication at our unworthiness.
