Enchantment :: The realization that something beautiful is happening
Photo: The Little Things / A sweet detail from our everyday
Baby’s tiny fingers wrapped around yours. Those roly-poly thighs on proud display during one of last warm days before the seasons shift. A sweet note your partner left behind for you on the kitchen counter. Wherever you are, whatever your days look like, capture them. The season can be messy and hard, but these moments are filled with bits of beauty. And a detail shot will allow you to remember at least one of them.
Journal: Surprise! / What’s surprised me most about parenthood...
The instant love you had for your squishy newborn. The days (weeks? months?) it took for you to feel connected. How hard breastfeeding is. How much you don’t mind getting up for feedings in the wee hours. The way it’s turned your identity upside-down. The way you’ve never felt more at home in your role. Be honest and be hopeful. Allow the exercise to be cathartic for you and validating for anyone who’s journey might look similar.
