Forgotten Artwork

While I was in CT visiting my family, I came across a few old pieces of artwork that I had either completely forgotten about or not seen for a long time. This first drawing falls under the ‘completely forgotten’ category. It’s two of my brothers, and I drew it for my older brother for Christmas…

Happy Dependance Day

  See this handsome man? He is all mine! When I was a girl I pretty much accepted the fact that my husband would be ugly, because I couldn’t imagine anyone good looking being interested in someone like me. (This was before I realized that being a nerd was totally awesome.) But I somehow ended…

365 Days Outside > 151-157

It is so late right now, and I am SO tired. Usually I am up this late without any thought of it, but lately I have been falling asleep early. I think the road trip reset my sleep clock. Which is a good thing with the new job starting next week and all. The only…

June Wrap Up

  June was so much fun. Especially since I spent almost half of it at home visiting my enormous family! I miss everyone, but it is so nice to be home. We did a ton of thrifting while I was in Connecticut, it was awesome. Within the first two weeks of June, I finished two…

Heading Home

  Tonight we are heading back home! We have had SO much fun in Connecticut visiting my very, very large family. (I photoshopped this photo quite a bit to get everyone in there. It’s so funny seeing everyone in one spot!) We are driving to Ohio tonight and then spending the weekend camping there. Then…

Tired

  Can I just start by saying, I love my two kids. I love being their mama. I love their hugs and kisses, and the look of excitement on their tiny faces when I walk in the room. I love their insane giggles. I love having conversations with Juniper, and I love the fact that…

Water Bottle Eyes

Ok, so the “activity” that I’m about to share with you is ultra simple. Like, stupid simple. But so seriously entertaining that I thought I needed to share it! Ready? You might want to take notes. Get a smooth water bottle. Hold it up to your face. Take a picture. Laugh uncontrollably.   Easy, right?…

Another New Lens…

I broke down this week and bought myself a new camera lens. I’ve been putting it off for weeks, but I really wanted to take some nice pictures of my new niece, all of the little cousins together, and Tesha’s graduation while I was here. I am so glad I bought it, I have been…

365 Days Outside > 142-150

We took a break from these updates last week so this is going to be a kind of long post! We didn’t really take a break from going outside, but we didn’t take many pictures. We were busy having fun. And the break was nice. Now that we are visiting family and I got a new…

Tesha

It’s not really a secret that I have the coolest little sister ever. I have a lot of sisters, but Tesha is definitely pretty awesome. She’s always been my little, tiny, sweetie. Even though she’s given me countless bloody noses, and always calls me Crinkle, I love this girl. Well, today my sweet baby sister…
