Sisterhood Stories

Today, I'm joining fellow photograpahers for another chance to share Sisterhood Stories with them.  This week, I've chosen to share the magical moments I've been able to capture with my iPhone.  

Recently, a friend of mine bought me a  mug that said "Stop me before I volunteer again."  Having said "yes" to too many volunteer commitments, and having a strong sense of obligation once committed, I have finally been letting others have an opportunity to do some of the volunteer work I was "hogging," and practicing the word "no."  

A few friends have passed away recently, and it reminded me that what really matters is making lasting connections with my family and myself.  

The simple, but effective word "no" has given me time for more beautiful moments.  It's important to do things, like take a relaxing sunset stroll with my children and dogs. 

And setting up a homemade tent and having a backyard picnic with my kid.

Please remember to follow the circle of Sisterhood Stories to my sister in photography Az Alg, of Little Twinkles.

  3. Abby, I love your images! They are so beautiful I really want to make a tent like yours with my kids...they would absolutely love it. Thank you for sharing your simple moments with us. xoxo, Kristi

  4. Abby, you've hit the nail on the head. We put ourselves under so much pressure sometimes that we need to stop, reassess and realise the important things which can be so small they go unnoticed. I'm glad you're enjoying these things again. X
