InstaFriday 7-26-13

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in InstaFriday. I’ve missed it. I have found it to be one of my favorite ways to recap what we’ve been up to. I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse of our everyday life as well… Asher has a thing for getting in baskets. He’s such a silly […]


I love Fridays and sharing a glimpse of our week through my iphone photos. Absolutely love it…it’s like scrapbooking for lazy girls. In light of Asher’s “Failure to Thrive” scare, I took lots of evidence that he does, in fact, sit in a highchair with food on the tray. We found out that homeboy likes […]


Happy Friday! I love slow, quiet mornings that involve my coffee and a cinnamon roll. They are my favorite. Using my Dean & Deluca coffee mug makes me think of the trip I took during college to visit my sister in NYC. I bought it the morning I stood outside The Today Show. We’ve been […]


I spent a little time with a long lost friend… Unfortunately, she’s a little sick and needs to go to the doctor to get a tune-up and realignment… The good news: I finished part of my project list and a present for our friend Titus in spite of my embroidery machine acting weird. Isn’t this […]


Again with the standing in baskets… My flowers are making me happy. The vincas are so bright and colorful. I caught this one as it was unfurling, and it struck me as so lovely. It looks like a perfectly pink pinwheel. Hydrangeas are my favorite. My hydrangea bush is a transplant from my granny-in-law’s yard. […]


It’s been a while since I’ve participated in InstaFriday, but I’m back and ready to share! I really need to figure out a new system for keeping up, so if you are a fellow InstaFriday poster, feel free to share your system in the comments. For now, I’m playing catch up… Asher found the toilet […]

InstaFriday: Truly Living

After this week’s post about Special Time & Living Fully, I made sure I really lived! I soaked up time with my boys this week. We headed to the Library for Story Time and heard stories about butterflies. Jonah made a butterfly puppet. (Sidenote: Do you go to your local library for story time? Ours […]

InstaFriday: Six Months

Asher is 6 months old today. SIX whole months. Um, THAT is half a year. How is that even possible? I mean, on the one hand, it feels like he’s been around much longer than six months when I think about colic and sleepless nights that no amount of coffee can help. But then, on […]
