sometimes you just need to remind yourself what things are all about.

our friend alex visited last week, and it was just so great having him around, i can't even tell you. he's just pure positivity, so wonderful. i'm not sure that's a word, i may have just made it up. anyway.
he was doing something incredible all week long, and i'll bet he doesn't even know it.
everywhere we went, alex took photos. he took photos of himself while driving out here, he took photos on every ride he took, he took photos of food as i was cooking (and photos of some really, uhm, unique faces i made while cooking), and photos of our dog hiding in our room.
it was really important because it made me realize that i have stopped doing just that, taking photos of little things that matter to me on a daily basis. i get my camera out for jobs and races, but less and less for little life events like cooking dinner and taking the dog on walks and when our friends all get together for dinner. i mean, i'm going to want to see photos like the ones alex took when i get old! it's so important, and i'm definitely going to make it more of a habit from now on. here's to life's little moments.
