I am not good with saying good-bye.
For some reason every time Justin asks for a kiss off Jarvis, Jarvis licks his face.
Good-byes are always hard. But last night’s good-bye was even harder for so many reasons. Justin and I have never been apart for as long as we are going to be. Justin has never been away from Jarvis for any length of time. While Jarvis and I stay and adjust to living in a new house, Justin is off on an adventure. An adventure that is more than a holiday, Justin is volunteering his time and expertise as a photographer, to document and promote a school that my cousin, Margaret has fundraised and built. (More on Margaret and the amazing work she has been doing later) But it is also bittersweet for me Justin is going off to do my fantasy job/thing. I have always wanted to travel the world and raise awareness for education in
Third World countries.
Jam you are going to be so missed. We… I love you.
Note: Tamika took the group images for me.
Jodi over at Che and Fidel has inspired me to pick up my camera and turn the focus inward. Since I already take 100s of photos of my children each week, so I thought I would twist the idea a little. What I never seem to get is group shots, images of the family together, whether it is my two children, Tamika and Jarvis, or me with the kids, or shots of Justin and I. So I am going to challenge myself to get one image of "my family" per week.
