photo challenge theme evanescent


ev·a·nes·cent [evəˈnes(ə)nt]- adj.

Soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.

I’m in the car heading to Miami to fly to Scotland!

I have been participating in the weekly photo challenge each week so far this year and today is my last day to offer a post for this week’s concept.

Evanescent is the choice for this week.


This weekend the girlie had her final soccer tournament as a U14 girlie. They made it to the semi-finals, but not to the championship. The girlie was disappointed of course, but I thought it was an overall good weekend. I got to know a few parents better and she got to spend a little more time with the girls off of the field.

One of the topics that came up was a parent who has another daughter graduating this year. And that girlie’s last moment on the field before heading off to college. Playing her sport since the age of 7.

An integral part of her life. 

And it made me reflect on my girlie. And how my girlie has played this sport that she loves since she was seven.

An integral part of her life.

I look back at photos and I see this little girl slowly transitioning into a woman. This evanescent moment of childhood rushing to a close.

I love these moments with her spent laughing, hanging out, and creating memories.

I can only hope that as she grows into a woman she remains as close to me as I am to my mother.

A mother that I am now flying off to Scotland with, along with my aunt, to travels to places unknown…. laughing, hanging out, and creating memories.

I will be a little more absent in the blogosphere over our journey to Scotland.

The best place to follow along will be on Instagram, where I will update regularly on my Instagram story and also occasionally post to my feed.

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend and if you observe Memorial Day, that you spent some moments in remembrance for those service members who have lost their lives to protect your safety.

Let your light shine!
