Photo Diary | Outings + Doings |

Thursday, December 19, 2013








I know I am a little late today, well, I am only late because so many of you are on the east coast - here in the west, it's still pretty early. The last two days have been rough around here. But I've been dealing with them and things are good so I suppose that makes it the best time to deal with something that needs attention and love and nurturing. I wish I could talk about it all here right now, but I can't, because while it is about me, it really isn't about me so much at all. But I feel hopeful for the situation and that we'll get through it. We are getting through it right now. But any kind thoughts won't be turned away. 

I can't believe it's only the 19th of December and I feel like the it's the end of the month. One last weekend before the big day is here. And I am totally ready and so not ready because I just want to stay a little longer in the time of sparkle lights and coziness. But for those of you that are so over seeing another christmas tree post, it's almost over, I swear. These are photos I have just taken randomly over the last few weeks on some of our outings and our doings. Excuse the nose-picker tree decorating photo, but that's literally the best shot I got in the bunch. Sometimes that happens. But I think I have made up for it with that adorable santa-hat-marla picture.  xo

  1. So much to love in these shots: pancake! Marla in a hat! Paris things! And then the piece-de-resistance, the nose picker! I wouldn't have noticed that until you pointed out, haha, but now that I see it, it's so adorable. That's real life! It's not always so photogenic but it's perfect because it's true. xo

    1. haha, a couple of my favorite photos happen to be nose-picker photos. but i really was trying to get one "normal" shot of them decorating the tree. i suppose this is exactly just what i wanted - totally normal. xo

  5. We have a photo that comes up on our screen saver from a Christmas years and years ago of Cal and me coming down the stairs of our home on Christmas morning. He's filled with delight and I've been so fixated on that bright smile that it took me years to realize that he was PICKING HIS NOSE! Oh well, that's life with a little one, isn't it?

    What I especially love about these photos, in addition to just how gorgeous they are, is how stunning the tones are in all of them. Really, really lovely dear. Holding you all in the light and in my heart, as always.

    1. ha, fisher has a little lisp (he chose to keep it rather than work through speech therapy) but i had no clue for YEARS! and i told my friends when the school suggested therapy and they were like "uh, yeah, how did you not notice that? did you really not notice that?" now i notice it and he doesn't. minds are pretty interesting little squiggly things.

    1. thank you so much!! sometimes i think things have to get a little worse better they get better. and the "worse" part just might be acknowledging something, which then means you can deal with it, which means it can get better! and with that, yep, 2014 da bomb!

  7. what ever rough patches you're going through, i'm thinking of you miles away! lots of hugs - to you all. as far as too many christmas photos? there is no such thing in my book. christmas comes and goes so quickly that i like to eat every bit of it up that i can and enjoy every moment. even the nose picking moments!

    1. thank you so much. call it totally narcissistic, but doesn't help so much just knowing people care a virtual hug can really be like a real hug. it means so much. thank you. xoxoxo and the nose picking moments are kind of the best ones because they are likely to be the ones you remember:)
