Lately, it’s been hard to find time to sit down and write. Mostly because it means I have to think through a whole post, and with three young ones in tow, I’m just not good at it. However, I enjoy snapping pictures, and we’ve always got lots going on, so I thought I’d share a little of our life – Just Because. Really, it doubles as my list of thanks.
#1 – Our Lydia at two months (but she just turned three months). She’s the best baby! Sleeps fairly well, rarely cries, gives lots of smiles, coos and gurgles. I am blessed!
#2 – The whole family on Easter Sunday – captured with the timer on my camera. This photo inspired me to finally grow out my bangs. Sometimes I like them, sometimes I don’t!
#3 – The release of our butterfly garden on May Day.
#4 – My sweet girl turned six this month and we had a fun watercolor birthday party – inspired by thehademadehome.net And it was fun thinking up a new project for the kids to paint. I took freezer paper, cut out a stencil, ironed it to watercolor paper, and when they peeled it off after painting, they had a cute work of art to hang on the wall.
#5 – Making memories and wishing on dandelions
#6 – Fun with the geodes my mom gave the kids to break open.
#7 – Okay, so this quilt has been in the making for about 5 years!! I had a friend come over Friday night and we were talking about the quilt she just finished. I brought this out to tell her how long I’ve been working on it. I didn’t think I liked it anymore, but seeing it again, I realized I do like it, and now it’s my goal to finish by the end of summer!! We will see – seems like more than enough time!
#8 – This one’s for you, Leah, even though you have kids and I know you understand! I find this is my life, no matter what goals I set. Super funny!
# 9 – This post by my friend Amanda - To the Momma of Little Ones
When I’ve got dreams in my heart, but mothering my kids is the most profitable work. Probably even the most blessed work. Love this that she just put up today!
