I love family reunions, birthdays, the wide ocean, the graduations, the hustle and bustle of NYC, the beginnings and ends of the big things... The BIG picture. Sometimes I get caught up in the big picture - the year after this one, the meetings and appointments, the overall game plan, all of the people, the schedule for next week, the 5 year goal, the planning of trips.
However, life is written so strongly in the details. In the goose bumps, Greyson's fingerprints on the car window, steam from the coffee mug, changing of the leaves on my favorite tree, the squeeze of a hand, a hug from my mom, the jumping of rain drops as they reach the puddles on the ground, hearing the quiet click of Chris' camera next to me as we capture a couple's first dance, the welling up of tears in a new mother's eyes as she feels pure joy holding her son, the wrinkles on my grandma's hands as she makes her famous meatballs, wet nose puppy kisses... Sometimes we have to slow down to notice and embrace the details within the big picture.
Cause let's be honest, we all need that beautiful balance: to appreciate life as a whole in its months and years, as well as in the seconds and details that can cause it to change and really make you feel alive and the fragility of life.
