Finding Lifestyle Blog Circle | Day in the Life

I am so excited to join a group of talented, lovely ladies as we embark on a new monthly project – Finding Lifestyle. Born from a class taught by the amazing Brit Chandler and a love of documenting real life. Follow along with us each month as we photograph life just as it happens.

A Day in the Life of the Melcher household is usually pretty busy. I decided to document the first day back to school… always a bittersweet day for me. I love watching my girls grow and learn, but I hate that they leave me all day. I am definitely happier when they are home…

a sweet treat to ease the first day blues

finally the last one is home… someone else is happy to see them too

Bitter sweet doesn’t seem like enough words every year. I feel like I am the one desperately trying to keep my emotions from spilling over as I drop them off each year. I love that you documented this day and what a sweet mom you are to make it a special day at home even after school. What a wonderful mom you are!
