Kids were here May

“These still life images serve as a daily reminder that my days are awash in chaos, whimsy, laughter and laundry (sometimes all at once). They capture toys and spills and puddles and piles. Sentimental, solitary moments of childhood ephemera. A gentle prodding to live in the now and stop looking toward the “then.” And though sometimes I pray for clean and quiet and still, I know all too well it will come. And I will yearn for tiny shrieks of laughter in my bedroom. For toys and loveys strewn about. For signs of a daily life well lived. For traces of my babies who once were. For reminders that Kids Were Here–and they were life and light and love.” – Stephanie Beaty

Ginger Unzueta - jackie, i am in love with your series, i can so relate to finding old food places..and i almost started crying when is saw the height chart—we had a wall like that in our old laundry room and it hurt so much saying goodbye to it…sounds silly but represents a big part of our life. xo
