Once upon a time, Kicky's bedroom looked like this...spotless and adorable. And then all plastic hell broke loose and this is what that adorable room looked like last weekend. I'm genuinely embarrassed by the shear quantity of stuff she has and by the fact that we let her space get so filthy.
So why am I sharing this photo? I'm sharing it because life is messy and layered and that's OK. I'm still having a difficult time articulating the reason, beyond a new job and young children, that I took a blogging hiatus, but I think these photos have something to do with it. Honesty is important and I needed some time to really reflect on that. A break from blogging reminded me how much I value the small moments in life and how meaningful it is to me, messy or not, to capture those moments.
