365|Week 16

I am going to title this week, the week of the imperfect photo, perfect stories:-)  Somedays, I don’t get it right.  But I am capturing our family, our story, and it is US, so it’s the beauty in the imperfection;-)  We ordered our cabinet boxes this week, the grands got a basket ball hoop, flew paper airplanes, appreciated the blessing of being so close as our house gets built and played lots of legos! I am SO thankful to be part of LIGHTBOX STORIES and be inspired and encouraged by them to continue to tell my story.  Being a family and lifestyle portrait photographer I “sometimes” focus on documenting other people’s families through pictures, prints, art, and albums, and neglect to capture the memories of my own family:-)  This year I am trying to make sure that doesn’t happen:-)  AND as I keep challenging myself and shooting, I aim to improve my storytelling images so that not only does my family benefit, BUT you do too! It’s win-win!  Thanks for looking at the images of my life and reading my story!



My hops plant is growing nicely, I may try to plant it up at our lot and get it out of its pot…but I’m worried about its survival!365_107_Blog108|365

Grandpere got a basket ball hoop, due to his love of the game, and Daniel trying to dribble every ball in their house:-) Needles to say, every morning I wake up to, “Can we go to Grandpere’s?  We want to play basketball!”365_108_Blog


3 hours of our life was spent ordering our cabinet boxes for our new house.  They are having a big sale. It was crowded.  I was SO thankful I had my layout and order all ready! I can’t wait to get them on Mother’s Day!365_109_Blog


We have been SO blessed to live just steps from our new house!  So thankful our friends bought the house next door, and it had a granny unit:-)365_110_Blog111|365

My new challenge includes healthy eating.  To reach my goals, the coach, gave me a protein goal.  I have been having a shake as a snack a few times a week.  Today I was excited it matched my shirt;-)  It’s the little things.  I should have totally wiped up the table BEFORE taking the picture!365_111_Blog112|365

You’ve seen it before, ALL LEGOS, ALL THE TIME.  I just love the way he sits and studies and builds!365_112_Blog


I literally laughed out loud, as I was driving down the driveway and saw two paper airplanes in our tree.  It’s just so US, or them I should say!  Our current yard and driveway doesn’t allow for much since it’s so sloped, but flying paper airplanes brings MUCH joy, well designing, making, and testing them out!  I had to get a picture!365_113_Blog

Thanks for reading!  Don’t forget to check back next week, it’s time again for a new month’s blog circle!  I can’t wait to see all the great images from the LIGHTBOX STORIES PHOTOGRAPHERS !
