"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."
living far away from one of our families is the reality of stijn and my relationship. we knew what we were signing up for when we made the choice to be together but the consequences of that choice are far reaching (quite literally). with the addition of children that distance feels even greater and sometimes hard to imagine how we will go a year without seeing our nieces. lucky for us there is skype and snail mail. the kids have pen pals and every few weeks we open our mailbox to something from them. this week it was a couple of animal masks and a toy car. as hard as it sometimes is i'm grateful that we are still able to connect and man i can't wait until we can be in the same room, hug and kiss, and play together
