Because I love you by jtsanto

Because I love you

The closer we get to the end of our year-long project together, the more I feel an artificial sense of our special time together running out. That is nonsense. A camera is just a camera. A photo is just a single moment. A project like this is little more than a supplement to the parenting I do every day. But this does act as a reminder of the year when you will change the most, Diego, and because it must end, like all things, that makes me feel a little sad and think, possibly too much, about all the moments I did not catch, all the essence of you I missed. But then there are shots like this one, an unremarkable shot taken with my phone during a lovely lunch outing in Portsmouth with your mom and your brother. Cameras were clicking like crazy that day, but this is the one I settled on because it’s rare I get to see myself with you, even if it’s a less than perfect shot. So I post this knowing that it doesn’t matter if we never post another photo again. Because at the end of every day, I have you, you have me, and we don’t need pictures to prove a thing. Love, kid. That’s truly all we need. And yeah, I feel lucky to catch it now and again in a picture, but that’s icing on the cake of us. That’s just a little bit of sweet atop the full course meal of our days together.

@kali66 @izadarling Thank you very, very much for your kind words and for having a look at Diego’s project over these past several months. I really appreciate it.
