I had a much needed relaxing weekend. A time to reconnect with my family and with myself. While my job as a social worker is very rewarding, it also requires diligent self-care. If I don't take the time to tend to myself, then I'm no good to anyone else. Pretty good words to live by for anyone. So, I spent this weekend tending to myself; doing things that are good for my soul. My camera is good for my soul. I've learned a lot about photography by playing with my camera this weekend. I've got plans to share the little lessons I've learned about photography since I bought my DSLR, so I hope it's not too long before I'm able to share my resources, links and inspiration with you. Until then, I share a few of my shots I captured this weekend.

Hubby is an avid golfer and Taylor's been watching golf on TV since she was born. She's been asking when Daddy's going to take her golfing pretty much since she could talk. Well, strong willed, independent, high energy, and short attention span, are not characteristics that combine to create a good golf student. So, we had held off on exposing her to the actual game until we were convinced she would have the patience to listen to instruction. Golf is taken very seriously in our household. Lucky for her, today was that day, and Daddy took her to a nearby driving range.

This last shot is my favorite from the whole weekend. She did really, really well. She listened to Daddy the whole time. No arguing and was very focused. In looking back at the shots, Daddy is quite impressed with her form, too. She was just disappointed that she didn't get to ride in the golf cart.

I had a great weekend. Hope you did, too!
