This is one of my favorite outtakes from the so-called Valentine photo session that I attempted with Sammy earlier in the week; I discovered that the only way to get him to look up from playing in the dirt was to count to three...once I hit "three," Sammy would quickly look my way and flash a goofy grin.

So I know I promised a post in which actual brain power was used, but I just don't see that happening today. I don't know what my deal is lately, but I've just been feeling really uninspired--like it's a chore to pick up the camera or to come up with something fun and exciting for Sammy and me to do with our days. More and more I feel like the most boring person on earth and I often imagine that my readers would rather watch paint dry than read one more story or see one more photo of how Sammy and I spent our day in the backyard or how the highlight of my week was finishing up a round of antibiotics for a kidney infection (which coupled with the whole pregnancy thing may explain my general feelings of malaise this month).
What do you guys think--do you ever go through periods where you just feel totally uninspired? If so, how do you get out of your funk? I enjoy using my blog as a creative outlet for both my photography and writing (I'm convinced that without the blog I'd probably have forgotten how to write a grammatically-accurate sentence by now), but it's a lot easier for me to write about the things that I/my family do rather than how I'm feeling. Maybe that's something I should work on...after all, it's so easy to choose the most flattering/pleasant aspects of my life to showcase on this blog but perhaps it's time to live life a little more unedited.
