A few times a year I try to intentionally pick up my camera a bit more and take a photo a day for a month. I did it last November, and thought I’d do it again this year. I didn’t have a certain theme, I just wanted to capture real life around our house and tell a bit of our story.
But a week into the project I realized every single photo I had taken had our beloved golden retriever, Leo, in it. It’s pretty impossible to keep him out of the frame, seeing that he’s almost always by my side. Or by their side. Usually within arms reach. Always wanting to be near. So, I decided to make the month about our Leo and continue to tell our story through photos, but intentionally have him in each one. And appropriate, seeing it was his birthday on November 13.
After putting this slide show together and watching it for the first time I totally teared up (I know, shocker). I was reminded what an important part of our family our sweet dog is. He is the perfect example of unconditional love, of comfort, of warm snuggles right when you need them, of kisses when you are having a rough morning, of play and fun. We adore him and are so happy to have him by our side.
