From the Estern Shore of Maryland, Happy Labor Day! A Summer's last hurrah. We entertained family yesterday. I made ribs and panzanella salad and this brownie shortcake I love to make. Taking it easy today. . . As my soul recovery journey continues, on my blog post today, I consider its unfolding this far. . . "We are what we do everyday. And for a very long time, I did things based on fear. I did what I did because I was afraid of running out ... I kept on thinking the same sad thoughts about what little I deserved so I never updated my expectations and thus my life’s actions." . "All the “can’t” thoughts that make me feel oogy lapping up onto the shore of my psyche like toxic waste. Until I refused to acknowledge them as valid. And then I told myself to stop the cycle. I sat and held my breath and refused to play. And eventually, after this weird space of stubborn almost quiet, it was quiet." . I am not through. I'll always be updating myself, my process, my daily doings, my philosophy. But I have made more space and freedom in which to do this.

My assistant receiving baby kisses from the client. She worked hard for the baby to smile and laugh. Notice the grass in Keira's hair. She was trying anything to get a giggle. Instead the baby wanted to kiss all over her!
I like to bring my assistant with me on photo shoots. She's always capturing behind the scenes of the session. Only downfall is she makes me take her for a happy meal when it's all over. 😜 My assistant is 7 and she's pretty bossy. #keirafaith 💕
