Something for the Weekend: Inspiration & Fun Links!

Last weekend the girls and I headed down to Madison to see my parents, which was a lot of fun! Ella enjoyed taking two tubbies in grandma’s bathtub and I had fun taking her pictures. That tub is a dream for toddlers … so big it’s like a mini swimming pool! This weekend I’ll be working … this week was my mandated overtime week, so …

Something for the Weekend: Inspiration & Fun Links!

It’s been a good – but fast – week around here! Saturday Mike and I took the girls to Discovery World and had a great time. This was the first time Ella was really old enough to remember it and it was so awesome to see the awe on her face as she looked at one new thing after another. Her favorite things were the …

Discovery World, Milwaukee in photos

Every year our family gets a membership at a local museum and this year it was Discovery World in Milwaukee. Mike and I have always loved taking the kids there as there’s something for everyone to do, regardless of their age, which is great when you have a large age gap between your children like we do. We spent Saturday exploring the museum and while …

Something for the Weekend: Inspiration & Fun Links!

This week I kind of fell off my 365 Project as I worked a lot and am finding it hard to take pictures with enough variety in the cold, dark Wisconsin winters. I think I’m going to move toward the 52 Week project instead, where you shoot throughout the week and choose one image each week that is your best. The one above is my …

365 Project: Week Two

I had to get a little creative this week for photos since it is the middle of January in Wisconsin and that doesn’t leave a lot of available light to shoot in outside and there are only so many shots of Ella in the bathtub that you want to see (or I want to shoot). So, I started packing my camera with me on errands …

Being a tourist in our own city: Blue Harbor Resort

Mike and I promised Hannah we’d take her to Blue Harbor Resort’s Breaker Bay Waterpark for her eighth birthday and had a total mom/dad fail on that as the months ticked by and we never went. So, last night, I decided that a family trip to the waterpark was in order (before Hannah turned nine in March!) and so tonight we packed up the kids …

Something for the Weekend: Inspiration & Fun Links!

Well, we made it thru another week! I’ve been battling a cold, which with my already-less-than-ideal immune system has meant for some no-so-fun times the past seven days but I’m managing. I’m super happy to report I’m still on track for my 365 Project and it’s getting to be second nature to pick up the camera and have it with me at all times. I’m …

Project 365: Week 1

Well, I managed to stick with my Project 365 for a whole week (yay me – I think this calls for celebration!). I made it a habit of taking my DSLR with me everywhere and the idea of taking photos of the kids inside my home motivated me to deep clean everything because, let’s face it, who wants to see my messy house? I know …

Something for the Weekend: Inspiration & Fun Links

Well, as promised, I’m back with my Something for the Weekend posts! And you know what guys … I forgot just how much I love making these for you. I come across so many inspiring things during the week, I just hope that something I share with you sparks something in you as it does me! This week we returned home from the cabin and …

Hello! (And a year-end wrap up)

It’s been a while, my friends. I wish I had a good excuse for not being more present in this space, but honestly, life just sort of happened and it got away from me. This has been a rough year with my being sick and recovering and while I’m a great deal better than I was this summer, I’m still not 100 percent. I’m so …
