This Season of Life is a 52-week photography project through which my friend Mary and I will share photos that depict various moments from the current season in which we find ourselves. Having remained friends for the past 12 years, we have experienced a lot of seasons together (and some apart), as we now live in very different places. Having stayed in touch, we continue to share our life experiences and challenges with one another. This has been an incredible gift that continues to shape our friendship. We hope you will follow our Project 52 and enjoy the images that we share.
Once again, it’s been some time since we lasted posted for our P52 project. It seems that life continues to take unexpected turns, and we realize that this is something we can always come back to when we’re ready.
This week’s image is one that means so very much to me. One of my dearest friends, Amy Lin of a3amylin recently gave me a truly meaningful and heartfelt gift, probably one of the most treasured gifts I have ever received in my life. Knowing that my mother recently passed away, she crafted this beautiful piece for me, while also creating one for her own mother, who she dearly loves, just as I love mine. I could not be more honored to wear one of her gorgeous pieces of craftsmanship, especially one that reminds me of the woman who has mean the most in my life. It accompanies my heart/xo pendant, also handcrafted by Amy, which I originally ordered because it symbolized the love I have for my mother. Now, I have even more love around my neck. While the heartache continues to be there, having friends who truly understand you and who are there for you, make it easier to bear. I love you, Mom, today + always.
Now, take a moment and check out my friend Mary’s photo this week: Morning Blur. While you’re at it, look around her site, Mary Goldau, a bit more and view our last Project 52. I am sure you will fall in love with her photos and see what a special person she is, just as I have.
