The business of life

"The business of life is the acquisition of memories." - Carson from Downton Abbey
Who else watches Downton? Anyone else love Carson as much as me? I heard this quote in last week's episode and it sort of stuck with me. The meaning of life is much deeper than this of course, but I found myself so in love with the idea of acquiring memories.
Sometimes before a big important event, I remind myself to capture little memories as those moments unfold. Like on the days my children were born. But other times, it seems that the sweetest memories occur on the smallest and most insignificant of days. The days when my hands are shivering from the 13 degree weather as I hold the camera and watch my three favorite people pile onto a sled and attempt a triple decker ride.
