1. Busy days here. We’re winding up the last three weeks of school. Which translates to playoff games, spring concerts, finals, projects and a healthy dose of spring fever mixed in. But as I always say, it’s a good busy.
2. I snapped the photo above while my baby girl was doing her homework at my desk. Which leads to another of my fairly random photo tips: take a photo of the little stuff. The details. One day, I will need a little boost to remember her utter concentration and focus so that she never even noticed I was taking the photo, the way she stacked those bracelets, the way she loves to work at my desk. A photo of the little things will save these memories for me. I think it’s most important the busier you are, since we tend to miss things then. Make yourself stop and take notice, and then take a picture. I promise that one day your kids will look at a picture you took of them in their room, and remember a beloved toy, or their favorite thing in the room, or an equally lovely memory. Get the big events on camera, but don’t forget the details.
3. The lovely Irene over at Happy Turtle gave me the Versatile Blogger Award last week. Thanks Irene! Check out her blog for an interesting view of the world from Greece. Design, decor, and a neat shop are all there. Irene very sweetly said she chose me because I am “so cool and talented yet doesn't make a fuss about it.” Irene, trust me, if I were that cool and talented, I would totally be making a fuss about it! But I thank you! I’m supposed to pass this on to 15 newly discovered bloggers,and I am going to have to work on that. I’ll do my best to get to it soon!
4. I saw a neat idea on Pinterest. It came from this blog, which I have never visited to be honest, but I will check out soon.
This is her playroom chalkboard, filled with summer ideas for her family. I’ve made up a similar list after I saw this, but I can’t figure out how or where I am going to display it. Fun, right?
That’s it for now. Have a great week everyone!
