When the world feels upside down, there’s still that moment.
The one when you brush a fallen hair out of her eyes and tuck it behind her ear.
There are tiny red cheeks, soft and supple, grinning about things like sparkles and raspberries.
Sun-dripped nooks of warmth.
Hugs like fuel.
Books of encouragement and stories of escape.
Friends across the world but a phone call away.
Blankets with the perfect softness around tired feet. The quiet of dawn and clarity in stillness.
When the world feels upside down, there’s still hope. And there’s still home.
Honoring the character of home in photographs is one of those things that feels unimportant till it’s important.
The chair where you spend hours nursing, the table where you share holiday feasts and Tuesday takeout, the hallways you pace in hushed arguments about sleep training and potty training and curfew, your sunny corner with the plants.
Not because of its perfection or its permanence. Not because of its style or its intrigue.
But because home is part of the heart.
And when you’re fortunate to have those rooms and that roof, even squeaky floorboards or outdated wallpaper becomes an anchor. A backdrop for a season of life.
Whether it’s the beginning, middle, or end, right now, it’s home.
