this week

August 8, 2014

Alright folks, link roundup posts are getting pushed to Saturdays because we could use some more real life shenanigans around here, couldn’t we? I say yes. SO. Just two weeks ago Liam and I were home sick for a week, then we had a week of recovery and getting back to normal, then this week I felt like we were hitting our stride again. Half marathon training began on the same day as the gym opened at work, and I made it through a weeny 1.5 miles on the treadmill. It was pretty boring and I’ll have to get used to it, but still better than dying from heat exhaustion. Anyway, the same day Meredith started swim lessons. The last…

instax home life / 1

August 7, 2014

I started a new little project for myself a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to play around with my Instax mini camera some more, so I started taking a photo with it once a day(ish). The only parameter I set was that it has to capture our home life. So far these have all been taken inside our house, but I will probably expand to outside or our neighborhood at some point. I am still really terrible at using this camera, but I hope by using it every day I will get better! And I can’t wait to eventually do some sort of project with them. >my side of the bed >a mirror in our bedroom >making pancakes >opening…

project life 2014 : weeks 29 – 30

August 6, 2014

Today’s Project Life update is from July 14 – 27. As you can tell, I take a lot of pictures of my kiddos. I keep telling myself to branch out and capture other things, but then I rarely do. New goal! During these two weeks I finished whole30, we celebrated Meredith’s birthday (I used an insert to document it, pictured at the end), Liam turned 6 months old, and I was sick for a week. The first ice cream after whole30 deserved to be documented. At first I was going to print all of the pictures in black and white, but it was just too much. I needed a little bit of color. I really love cropping photos to add…
