Take us away

This fall has been a rough one.

Katie has been back to school since early September and we still haven’t found our groove.

Our weeks are filled with making lunches, school drop off and pick up, work, errands, voice lessons, swim lessons, homework, laundry and, well, life.

Coming off a summer of hours on end of quality time, it’s been tough... Read More

2013 Weekly Challenge #33: Try something New!

As school starts, the days shorten, and summer starts to wane, I have been finding myself in a rut. I am doing the same things on the same days week after week after week and it feels like Groundhog Day. Nothing feels new or fresh. Am I alone?

Have you seen the amazing collection of shared small moments?

So many small moments… common threads that connect us all.

That’s what Instagram is for me… a way to witness the small moments of others and share my own... Read More
