Bring Out the Funk

So, I've been wrestling with this funk as of late. It started off feeling just a bit off and has grown into frustration and discontent. Lord have mercy on me - I KNOW I need to be more appreciative of my life so I can't explain the roots of my funk other than just feeling down. The good news is as last, I'm coming out of it.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I was whining to my BFF, Rhiannon, in the STL - and she said to grab my kids and my camera, go to a park and just start shooting (she knows me so well). I did what Dr. Rhiannon ordered and here is what came of it...

This reminds me of The Poky Little Puppy and how he always smelled dessert from way across the meadow.

For the love of black and white!

He is still very much a playful puppy.

And when I look at him, I still see the 4 month old dumpling we adopted just over a year ago.

His expression in this one cracks me up!

I know, I'm weird about my dog.

Wait a tick. Wasn't this a photo shoot for Gabe and Ethan???? lol! Great pics! I completely agree! A photo shoot is sooo therapeutic!

What great advice. I've been plagued by my own funk lately, getting outside with a camera and kids is as good of therapy as I could come up with. Certainly save me some pounds versus my approach - brownies. :)

Hey, you ARE still blogging! I have no idea how (don't take it personally, it happened with Keely too), you were no longer in my reader. But I love you and I'm sorry.

Sorry you're in a funk but glad the (super cool) pictures helped you come out of it. I feel the same way when I get funkified....I have it pretty good compared to a lot of people so I feel bad feelin bad but it happens.
