Week in Review Jan 17-23

This week wasn’t as busy as last week. However, I still managed to take a few photos.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

On Monday for school we studied Martin Luther King Jr. And my eldest took it upon herself to write a little history report to share with her Dad.

The youngest, trying to comprehend not being able to sit wherever you like or go into certain places based solely on skin color. She thinks, “that is so stupid.” I would have to agree.

So what you’re saying….

On Wednesday it was my husband’s birthday. And like I do every year I took some photos of him after work.

I’m really not sure what I’d do without him? And there just aren’t any words to express just how much he has made my life better. He is a wonderful husband, father, friend, and all around great guy!

The Man

Sometime during the week my Mom and I, finally, found the Asian market everyone’s been telling us about. Five Mile International Supermarket is awesome! We didn’t have a list but we still managed to walk out with a few things we just had to have. Next trip we go with a list to make some of our favorites.

Memories of Okinawa right her in Fredericksburg

The girls had to do their laundry and I just thought this was so funny. The youngest tucked her stuffy in before she turned on the washing machine. I must admit that I will miss these little things when the girls are all grown up and don’t need there stuffed companions anymore.

All tucked in and ready to go for a spin.

I tried my hand at some self portraits. This is one thing I struggle with. I hate having my picture taken and I’m terribly embarrassed about taking self portraits. Cell phone selfies are fine, even fun. But self portraits seem so serious and self indulgent. But I know if I’m not comfortable in front of my camera how can I make anyone else. So I hope you all are ready, I’m planning on take at least one self portrait a month.

Self portraits

So that’s it for this week. I hope you enjoyed the photos. I hope next week brings you joy and peace.

Love, B.

Week in Review Jan 9-16

A very busy week. The girls and I spent most of the week out and about running errands. Part of making sure I can take photos whenever the mood takes me is making sure I have my camera with me at all times. Thank goodness I like a nice big purse. I am, also, trying my hand at more staged photos. So I set up a little studio space on Saturday afternoon. I have been meaning to take some photo’s of my Fire King Jadeite dishes, so I did.

Saturday afternoon

week-1-17

(How’s about a cuppa?)

The weather was so lovely here that my husband decided to enjoy a cigar on our front porch.

(Smokin’)

On Sunday after Mass the girls and I had an American Heritage Girl function. Unfortunately, I do not have pictures of this event I was running late and forgot my camera…Gasp! I was a bit disappointed but desernened it must have been God’s way of keeping me present in the moment.

Monday came too soon and way too early! But that marathon in October won’t run it’s self. So it’s back to the early morning runs after a long break due to injury.

Tuesday was fun. My mother and I went down to Richmond to do a bit of shopping. It was a gloomy day but these Le Creuset lids brighten up the day.

Wednesday we ran our grocery shopping errands. I came home to discover that 3 of my eggs had broken in transit. But an opportunity for some photos. My youngest helped me put the dishes away before she helped to make dinner.

Thursday the weather was lovely so while Spending some time at the Grandparents the girls scootered and I took pictures around the yard.

That’s all for this week. I hope next week brings you joy and peace.

Love B.

A Few of My Favorite Christmas Photos.

Nothing says “I support your obsession,” like receiving camera equipment from your loving spouse. My wonderful husband gave me the 50mm lens I’d been looking at for the better part of 2014 for Christmas. I used the holiday to give it a test run. Here are just a few of my favorites.
