Alright, so it’s a little bit of a “cop out”. We’ve been anything but lazy lately, truth be told. But, I felt compelled to just post some miscellaneous photos from the past few weeks. I’ve photographed two weddings, several wonderful portrait sessions (oh my goodness, I love them!), my husband is about to start a new job, Baby O is going through all kinds of developmental changes (and I am starting to look into options for school or a nanny a few hours a week…oh boy!), and, well, actually, I suppose that’s about it. But still, somehow it has seemed busier than usual around here this month. I’ve been trying to make more of an effort each day to step back and just really be in the moment. Having a funny little one like O really helps in this way. She’s pretty comical (except when she’s having one of her new temper tantrums…those I’m not very fond of).
And so, I’m posting a tiny collage, brought to you by “Instagram”. Seriously, I really enjoy this app on my iPhone. It’s neat that the phone camera can help capture a lot of small daily moments that I might have missed otherwise. It obviously doesn’t come close to duplicating a professional camera, but you know what I mean, I’m sure…
L-R & T-B: Playing together during a Wedding Day Brunch for our dear friends; My Grocery-Shopping Companion loooves my sunglasses – They cheer her right up when she’s having a melt down.; Sleepy Girl – Amazing how easily she falls asleep in the car…If only I didn’t have to wake her to get out.; Baby’s first balloon! They were handing them out at Randalls and she was lovin’ it.; Me with my camera, taken on my friend’s iPhone…Is it me or do my hands look huge?; Rainy weather…Good thing we came prepared! It’s been raining a lot here lately!
Want to bear with me for a little more randomness today? Well, I wanted to share this recipe because I absolutely LOOVED it!! It was so easy to follow and it is seriously the most delicious bread I’ve ever made (okay, so I haven’t made very many yet, at least not from scratch). But this is a new family favorite. Try it if you will. It takes a little “learning” the first go around, but then you get familiar with the recipe and can repeat it every few weeks (at least that’s my goal). It actually makes a perfect “sandwich bread”.
I sliced mine in thin slices, a la store-bought sandwich bread, and froze half of it in a freezer bag once it was cool. The other half went quickly…think honey on warm bread or butter and cinnamon sugar on toast. YUM! Perhaps you will enjoy, and/or check out some of the other tempting recipes on the site.
And now a few questions…Do you have a favorite “smarty” phone app? Or a favorite bread recipe for that matter? I would love to hear!
Thanks for bearing with me. I love this little blog and am planning some fun posts in the coming weeks. I hope you’re having a wonderful week (and definitely taking time to relax and enjoy the little things when possible).
