Since we came home from vacation a couple of weeks ago, I have totally lost the motivation to do anything beyond playing with my photos. I haven't taken any new pictures of the girls in at least two weeks. It is just too darn hot outside for much of anything other than swimming.

Today was the first day of Vision Therapy to correct Chloe's intermittant exotropia (outward turning left eye). It is going to last for at least 6-9 months and will require significant effort every day. For now, this is my top priority. Chloe's vision in her left eye has suffered and it is hard for her to focus it for more than a second or two at a time. As we met with the therapist, I could see that these exercises were going to yield tremendous results if followed consistently. In fact, these seemed like really good exercises for perfectly healthy eyes. The best part is that Chloe is determined and motivated to give it her all and when she puts her mind to something, great things happen.

So I came across this old photo I took of her a few months ago. It never made the cuttoff before, but today it struck a chord in me and I was inspired to play with it. Blissful is how I feel when I look at this picture and when I think about being Chloe's mother.

it is beautiful. I am the same way about photos, one that isn't special today might be later when something comes to me.
Sometimes I throw myself into editing and sometimes I take a total break.
Sorry for the heat...
It is very humid and hot here this week.

I love this image because of her hair sweeping across her face. Completely blissful. Love it!!!
