Here’s one from the archives! (Now that’s just a better way of saying, “I’m posting this old photo only coz I haven’t posted anything new in quite awhile!” Hahaha! Saaad!) I stumbled upon this photo as I was cleaning out my laptop. It was saved as “Elena.jpg”.
I feel like these photos evoke a certain sense of warmth and comfort. Quite perfect I think, since these past days have been so damp and dreary with the rain and all. How fitting that the name Elena means “sun ray” or “shining light”. Aww…
It’s been an extremely busy and physically (and emotionally) draining past month for me… uhh… hence this poor, neglected blog! I’ve been preoccupied with end-of-summer “soccer mom” and “back-to-school mommy” duties, ministry work, house-sitting chores for my Mom while she was on a much-deserved two-week vacation abroad, small group meetings we host at our home every week, a couple of long but fun whole-day photo shoots, hours and hours of post-production work, an irritating cough, a bad cold, and, the annoyingly inevitable symptoms of what I think could be carpal tunnel syndrome! (Nooooooo!)
My better half, Cisco, has also been preoccupied with quite a lot this past month with changes at work and all the pressures (and emotions) that come with those changes. It’s been tough. It has. And yet he has managed to be super supportive of me all throughout. He’s been my “human tripod”, as one client put it; well, also because at one shoot, he really literally had to be one! Hahaha! I hope that to him, I too have been that person to lean on in order to get a steady, balanced, clear and focused view of things. (Whatcha think, Cis?)
Seriously though, I am indeed blessed. We both are. In the years we’ve been married, and even more in this past year, we’ve learned how to be more intentional in facing life’s challenges together, hand in hand in Hand.
My son Franco is back in school which hopefully means I have a few more hours each day to concentrate on work. Here’s hoping I get to update this blog again before the month ends! Till then, I wish you warm and comfy feelings and a bright week ahead! See ya!
