Currently - April

Amazed that it is April already.  2015, slow down...

Listening to my body and took a rest.  I did not intend to be away from my blog for a week - but the demands of motherhood will always come first and foremost.  My youngest was sick with a really bad cold and just as she was starting to feel better, I became sick.  And sometimes it's best to just step away and rest, refuel.  It was very much needed.  

Inspired by Sarah's film images from last summer. And Jade's instant black and white film captures in New York. 

Designed a set of flair badges for Scrapbook and More, complete with phrases of my favorites - film, coffee, documenting. Loved how they turned out & I can't wait to use these in my project life spreads.  More soon.

Loving Kari's black and white project life layout.  So good.

Getting so close to the launch and pre-order of On The Table, Volume 2 - a collection of film images all taken on my kitchen table.  Don't forget to sign up for my newsletter for up-to-the-minute updates. 

Looking forward to spending this Easter weekend with my parents.  I love the holidays when we are together.

Happy that it's March! Come on Spring. 

Loving this post by Lisa Congdon  - On Getting Older.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed by my girls' spring schedules.  It seems like every afternoon is filled with activities.  

Inspired by this post by Vanessa which included Ira Glass on the Creative Process - a reminder to do the work.

Trying not to feel overwhelmed by all the creative ideas swirling in my head.

Cried when I listened to this Story Corps podcast, When Sean Speaks. As a mother, the moment when your child realizes that your love is unconditional is priceless.

Making time for a little photography and documenting everyday.

Signing up for Lindsay's new Skillshare class - Creative Self Portraits, Going Beyond the Selfie.

Preparing for my next race.  I went on a long run with my husband yesterday. So thankful for his support.

Excited about my new film photography project - On the Table, volume 2. You can follow along with my progress via my newsletter.

Excited about a few new creative ventures I am working on.  I will share more soon.

Listening to the ever growing vocabulary of my one year old.  It amazes me how many words she learns from her older sisters.

Enjoying a little creativity everyday. Picking up my camera, watercolors, and documenting as of late.

Addicted to podcasts. Waiting on season 2 of Serial, but in the meantime I am enjoying Criminal, Strangers, Startup, StoryCorps, The Lively Show, and Elise Gets Crafty.  Any others I should be listening to? 

Eating steel cut oats with sliced almonds and bananas. Always.

Finding that I am pinning more and more these days.

Preparing for my first 10K in a couple of weeks. Nothing beats the jolt of accomplishment first thing in the morning from a good run.  

Wanting to share a heartfelt thanks for following my work in this new space. I'm loving it so far.
