Time to Embrace

It's Embrace the Camera day over at Emily's Blog. So we're embracing with another picture from Christmas Eve...this one a bit more realistic of what occurs when attempting to take a photo.


Today we're not only embracing the camera, but we're embracing the moment....
Rejoice in the things that are present; all else is beyond thee.
-Montaigne

This is certainly a tough concept for me, as I like to be in control of the situation at all times. But that's not working for me these days and so I'm forced to do the rejoicing in the present moment. Sometimes I'm not so good at it, but I'm a work in progress.

Often the best pictures are the outtakes, and I have to say - I love this one! I think it's so adorable!! Cheers to living in the moment more, or at least trying to! I know the feeling! xo
