I was photographing my umbrella wall plaque when my little guy came over and asked if he could be in the photo. I snapped a quick shot of him with the umbrella and it turned out to be my favorite. I could have easily told him, "No" or hurried him out of my studio, but he was so excited to be a part of it that I couldn't resist. I love the sweet face he's making and how he's holding the handle. In this tiny moment he brought my artwork to life in that beautiful, spontaneous way children often do.
It reminds me of all the small opportunities we have every day to see things in unexpected ways. To not allow ourselves to be so wrapped up in the business of life that we forget to joyfully live it. Today, this moment was my reminder. Look around. I bet you'll find yours too.
