Autumn in our new state has been interesting. Every now and again it’s cool or rainy but overall, especially coming from the midwest, it still feels like the tail end of summer to us. That means much of this fall for my boys has been spent barefoot and shirtless, running in the backyard. This particular day they found an old spool of kite string and decided it was just what they needed to make their very own spider web!

Make sure to head over and see what Janet of Janet Crouch Photography has this month and follow around full circle!

A Walk in Beauty // week 1

My 365 project with a new name and a new mindframe. I need to be reminded of the joy that surrounds me everyday even when life does not feel like it is on my side.

It is my choice to walk in beauty and to see beauty and joy. I’m not numbering my days anymore and so it’s not a challenge to take a photo everyday but rather a reminder to find the reason to smile everyday.

A walk in beauty: week 1

Days spent in the backyard. Daddy chasing you boys around and around the house. Boys taunting me to join in. Watching you fly your helicopter around in the streams of light coming through the trees. Watching your curls bounce and dance with each move you make.

The days that are just not complete without a full costume

The days of evening walks through one of our favorite parks.

The days when you ask for a blanket and we know there is no stopping the nap that will keep you up way to late in the end.

The days when you eat apple after apple after apple.

The days when it’s the best fun to play in the breeze of the fan.


The days when the kitchen becomes a minefield of playdough.


100 Days of Lensbaby Summer

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”  – Henry James

I’m already halfway through my second 365 project. So when my wonderful friend Ana Rosenberg asked if I wanted to join the 100 days of Summer project and shoot only with our Lensbaby, it was an obvious yes! (Make sure when you are done you head over and see Ana’s 100 days of Lensbaby Summer as well!)

I loved seeing our summer in a new way. This project pushed me creatively and allowed me to capture our summer moments in an amazing way!

And Then We Snapped| Days 59 – 65


Make sure to head over to see Kari of Kari Ganske Photography beautiful week next!

Day 59: Every year you get older it gets a little harder to get you in my daily photos. So this day I made sure to catch you on your way to school.


Day 60: I am not a morning person. I wish I was, but having two of my guys that still get up so much during the night pretty much ensures that I’m not. Yet those same two little boys very much are morning people, crack of dawn morning people. This day I heard one of them come into our bedroom and I cringed, I needed just another hour or even 5 minutes for that matter. Then I opened my eyes and saw that amazing light. That’s a good case for getting up early,


Day 62: His friends. Sheepy and Howl.
He is five now, and has toted these guys around four of those years. They are so worn; Sheepy has been sown back up a few times now. Every now and again he adds a new friend to the mix for a week or even a month, but it always comes back to these two…there used to be a Cow before Howl came, but he threw up on him and there was no getting him clean. It’s a story he likes to tell. He likes to ask where he got Sheepy and Howl even though he knows the story of each; he listens like a proud parent and grins ear-to-ear. I find myself as attached to these two as he is. They tell the story of his childhood. They tell the story of how very nurturing my rough and tumble boy is


Day 63: I walked into your room and asked if I could take your photo. I told you I needed to so people didn’t start to think I sold you for gas money since you don’t make as many appearances in my daily photos anymore. You didn’t think I was that funny, but you flopped on your bed halfheartedly to appease me. This wasn’t what I had in mind, but oh that beautiful light. Maybe you know me well enough that it was your plan all along so you could get back to your game. This is all I needed. Portrait of my boy at twelve.


Day 64: It’s so funny to me how content you are just to sit in the driveway for hours playing and watching the neighborhood. You don’t need a lot of bells and whistles, just a few Imaginext guys this day. Your dad and I were talking about you just having your own pace about you and your dad summed it up perfectly. You just have an easiness about you.


Day 65: Every now and again we have to mix up our everyday. What better way to do that than to pitch a tent in the living room! Blankets and snacks and it’s a full day of fun.


Day 66: It’s ridiculous but I don’t take these shots more often because the worry of how I will look trumps the memory.
Then I realized, when I look at photos of my mom and I when I was younger it had never even once occurred to me that she might not like her hair in that photo. Or that she doesn’t think it’s a flattering photo of her. All I see is me and my mom; and I am so very thankful to have that tangible memory of us printed.
I want my boys to have this.
So with my messy hair and no make-up I grabbed a shot that means so much to me. I want my boys to remember that I wasn’t always behind the camera. I want them to remember that sometimes we would stop whatever we were doing, turn the music up, and dance around the kitchen and laugh.


And Then We Snapped | Days 52 – 58


When you are done with my week make sure you head over to the always wonderful Jenny of Through My Lens By Jenny to see her beautiful week.

Day 52 – Sneaking into your room after you sleep to remember how you snuggled your friends when you sleep.


Day 53: The day we played in the rain and the mud.

Day 54: Another day of rain, this time we watched it from inside.

untitled-5275 untitled-5342 untitled-5353

Day 55: That’s one way to watch your favorite videos.


Day 56: The day we went and picked out a new lawn mower.

untitled-5448 untitled-5456

Day 57: The day you brought down all the pillows, all the blankets, and all the stuffed animals and pretended to take a nap.


Day 58: When daddy says he has to mow the lawn its like the best game ever. Even if you are still in your jammies you run outside and chase him.
