polishing the stars| these two sisters
May 6th, 2015

“Somebody has to go polish the stars,

They’re looking a little bit dull.

Somebody has to go polish the stars,

For the eagles and starlings and gulls

Have all been complaining they’re tarnished and worn,

They say they want new ones we cannot afford.

So please get your rags

And your polishing jars,

Somebody has to go polish the stars.”

~Shel Silverstein

These two sisters polish the stars for me, everyday. All I need to do is to look closely (to pay attention). Sometimes life feels really hard. It can be a struggle to notice the beauty and the joy and the love and the grace present all around. Even the stars get dull. But, then I see the two of them sitting there collecting “helicopter seeds” – noticing the smallest details of the world in their talk and play. Polishing the stars.

Meet Campbell | Arlington Virginia newborn photographer
May 6th, 2015

Meet Campbell. She arrived four weeks early and weighed four and a half pounds when we met. Perfection. She is full of fire and strength, is already showing signs of endless curiosity, and is completely adored by her mothers and big brother, Forbes.

This family is beautiful. She is beautiful. Life is beautiful.
