I haven’t taken photos of the little guy in a while. As he gets older I realised I’m taken less and less photos because I’m so used to our life-with-a-little-one, my eyes don’t see the beauty in the ordinary as often… It’s the same in all aspects of life I think.
So when we found a snail, actually Karamel the cat did, in the garden the other night, I saw the magic of life and nature again and ran to get my camera. It was such fun to take photos of him again, and of his absolute fascination with this beautiful creature.
There was kissing the snail, hugging the snail and saying goodbye when we had to go inside. It was just so beautiful to witness and these photos will always remind me of this ordinary evening in our garden when he met a snail for the first time.
My wish for myself is that I’ll always be open for the magic from the universe, to see the beauty of all the ordinary moments. And my wish for this boy of ours, to always see that too, and to enjoy and respect all the fascinating things around us.
