week 14: morning moments



  • get up
  • wake up the munchkin
  • take a shower
  • make sure the munchkin has eaten
  • tell him to get dressed
  • make my coffee
  • start making his lunch
  • why isn’t he dressed yet?
  • finish his lunch
  • what is he doing now?
  • “Brush your teeth!”
  • “You’ve been making faces in the mirror for 10 minutes?!?!!?”
  • decide I should really get this post done…take picture of only calm moment in morning
  • time to get out the door
  • “Really? You don’t have your shoes on yet?”
  • finally on the bus

week 11 : beauty all around


There is something incredibly beautiful about last years dried out hydrangeas.

This week’s prompt was difficult for me. It wasn’t because I don’t see beauty in whats around me…I see it everywhere. Its just that this blasted weather has been making me grumpy to say the least. I wish mother nature would make up her mind. On to better things…

I’ll be posting my bead soup pics later on today, please come back and check it out. I will also have a brief description for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about.


week 9: macro photo


IMG_4178I have always wanted to do a couple of shots of my son’s incredible eyes. He has the most amazing eyelashes and the color is ever changing. When he gets older I’m sure they are going to make the girls swoon either from love or jealousy – your pick 😉

By the way, have you ever tried to have a 6 year old hold still because you wanted to take a picture of his eyes? To top that off I don’t have a macro lens. All in all I don’t think they turned out half bad.


week 8 : capture colors

IMG_4089This is the color in my life at the moment. I have waaaay too many options when it comes to choosing a paint color. When the possibilities are infinite, what do you choose? It’s been a challenge but an incredibly fun time! I enjoy painting, which surprises me. I never really did in the past. I think its because its my own walls. 😉


I also had to throw in some pictures of the tulips I received last week for Valentine’s Day. They are incredibly beautiful at this moment right before they’ve reached the end of their life-cycle.
