837 - my last post

"The journey is the reward." ~ Chinese Proverb
This is my 837th blog post, and the last one.
It was August 2007 that I wrote my first post on 'Aging with Grace and strong Will.'
I certainly found my voice
about adoption, attachment, my children, and then visually through photography.
I've met some incredible friends through this blog, many of them lifelong ones and Will's entire adoption trip in 2008 was documented here too. So this blog is precious to me
and I will be getting it printed into book form.
Blogging has changed a lot since those former days and I will still be posting
but now it'll be here at my brand new blog, A Mother's Art Photography.
Photography is a lifelong journey for me
and I will continue to write about our life, my children and some of my favorite photography sessions. I will also write about what inspires me to capture some of  photos that I do
and even how I shoot them.
I hope you'll follow me on this journey.
And just because I had to post some sort of photo, the above is some of our February,
Instagram style.
1. Mr. Will drawing Wolverine (his current fave Super Hero). 2. Colorful Ranunculus flowers. 3. A serious Will waiting at the doctor's office for a pre-op physical. 4. Cool brick wall and arched windows in an antique store that I was browsing. 5. Grace and her friend Izzy dressed in costumes at their 5th grade musical. 6. Grace up on stage, she was a Thai Lantern Girl in the production. 7. Photos for Will's Star of the Week timeline, he helped me chose photos for it. 8. Will right before he left for the OR for an oral surgery he had last week. 9. A pensive Will looking out the window.
Will is fully recovered and did great.
He has a palate surgery coming up in the next 1-2 years.
I am on Instagram, here if you'd like to follow me and see what we're up to.
Thank you for the last 6 plus years.

I must say it makes me sad to see you close this book...but I am happy to know I can follow your beautiful family on A Mothers Art. I do understand, I am trying to decide if I even want to keep my blog open anymore. Your family has always held a special spot in my heart. God Bless.

Oh so sad to hear that this particular book is closing as it's where I "met" you & it has brought so much joy to me. However- as all things change I understand how it can evolve & focus goes in many new directions. I will continue to follow in all other places I can. You have been a gift in my life Gail - I certainly don't want to lose touch. How you capture life so beautifully is so inspiring. Thank you for that. Hugs!

I owe this beautiful BLOG of your's a lot. I met a true friend. To me that is immeasurable. I am so appreciative.
