I love this picture of myself because I didn't know it was being taken. This must be what I really look like when I'm happy and relaxed and not paying attention to how my stupid hair looks.

What you can't see in this picture is that my right hand is on my best friend Charlotte's belly and I'm feeling her little girl Hailey kick. Joy. This picture is pure joy.

I just wanted to throw out this little reminder to the blogging world because often we try to be so polished and put together online that we forget we are all human. Most of the pictures where I pose, I don't think I look as truly joyful as I do here. I love remembering that. Life is about the joy of being with people, experiencing miracles, crying, and starting over.

Life is in the candid shots. Don't forget that. :)



  1. Candid shots are my favorite. You really do look joyful in that picture. You look lovely.

  2. Candid shots are always lovely- they REALLY capture the moment in a way a posed picture never could! And your hair in no way looks stupidi n this picture!! xx
