Happy Friday all! I know I say this all the time, but I just don't know how the weeks fly by so quickly! Maybe it's because I work all hours of the day and night, and all days of the week, or maybe it's just getting old. I don't know, but the weeks seem to go by in one big blur.

Last weekend, I actually had the weekend off, which was a treat. We didn't do anything special and the weather wasn't great, but it was nice to not have to run all around town. We just enjoyed some family time along with the usual housekeeping, yard-pruning, errand-running, etc., etc. This week brought homeschooling, Girl Scouting, loads of editing, a quick visit with my Dad and Stepmom, storms, a power outage and an unexpected visit from the Fire Department. (No damage or danger for us, it was a follow-up after the power outage, but a bit of excitement nonetheless.) My 5 year old was tickled by their short visit and very sweetly ran after them yelling, "Thank you fireman!" Too cute. :)

I also shot quite a bit for the workshop I'm taking, which is about documenting the journey of motherhood, with Megan Nesom. I shot a Day in the Life series this week, as part of an assignment for the workshop. This was something I had not attempted before. I shot every hour from morning until night. My day actually ended with the power outage, so I didn't get bedtime pics, but did I get one of the girls huddled on the couch by the light of an iPhone at the end of the day. It was a fun project and I have shared the photos for this week's FPJ. If you haven't attempted a DITL for your own family I would encourage you to try it. It is a fun way to tell the story of this time in your life. Any camera will do. Just document your everyday moments for an entire day. I bet you will treasure those images years from now!

P.S. If you have ever shot a DITL series, I'd love to see it! Please add a link in the comments.

Hello and happy Friday to you! This week has been jam packed. I actually shot so many images that I had waaaaay too many to share them all. I had little time to edit them also, so I decided to just put collages together. Easy peasy.

My big girl went horseback riding with the Girl Scouts and we tagged along at the farm. One horse in particular loved to mug for my camera. We were cracking up! I also practiced some more freelensing and we made giant bubbles and jumped like monkeys on the trampoline. Good fun and great weather.  Yay spring! Oh yes, and the puppies also had their first birthday! I tried to get a shot of them together, but they are in perpetual motion and my house is small. So, even with a flash I get all butts and blurry noses, lol. Sadly, no photos to share of those wiggly one year olds. 

What have you been up to this week?

Link up your posts below and have a fun-filled weekend!

Hello my friends! Happy Friday to you!! 

Things are ramping with work and I have a bunch of "stuff" to get done that has not been checked off of my long "to do" list. So, this week's quick peek includes several random images. Who am I kidding? Isn't that every week??
I actually shot quite a bit this week. I practiced freelensing and shot some lifestyle stuff for a workshop I'm taking. (I was super lucky to win a seat in Documenting Your Journey with the amazing Meghan Nesom!!) Plus, I had to take advantage of the blooms while they're here! So, random, but fun. Here goes:

 Happy Friday friends! We've had a busy week of birthday festivities and crazy weather. I shot several  spring themed sessions that were quite chilly. The beautiful blooms make it worthwhile though. This week, my post includes a smattering of personal work, some puppy antics and a conglobulation of random iPhone pics. Yes, I just made up that word. I rather like it though, so I'm sticking with it. ;)

I don't have many birthday photos to post because the big guy is on the modest side and doesn't like me posting images of him online. He turned 14! Gah!! I can hardly believe it when I say it. 14. Like sand through an hour glass. 

 I was feeling less than inspired this week, so I didn't get much accomplished. But, I did manage to document a few moments from our days. Here are my random photos for the week:

How was your week?
Thank you for joining in and sharing your everyday moments with us! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. :)
