One Community Photo Project #1

Happy Wednesday to y’all! How is your week so far? My week is speeding by – I can’t believe that it’s Wednesday already!

Today I am über excited to link up for the first time with my friend Sarah from Beauty School Dropout and her lovely photo project series One Community. I love “meeting” new blogging friends – what a fabulous way to build community here in the big blogging world!

Calm ~

Early morning alone time – the calm before the three boyish tornados wake up and join me for the day. I love seeing their bedheads walk up the stairs for hugs and breakfast, but this quiet time really helps to set the tone for my day.

Shower ~

This is one of the biggest reasons that we ended up buying this house – the shower! Ta-da! It’s positively heavenly. This is going to sound horrible, but I hate to bathe. I mean…I hate taking actual baths. A big shower is definitely the way to this girl’s real estate heart! It has three shower heads, a skylight, and a glass block window. It will also make you sound just like Celine Dion if you feel so inclined to belt out a little ditty. Love!


 Green ~

Probably my favorite green clothing, this jacket was another bargain find!


Friendship ~

You know those friends that you don’t see very often, but when you do – it’s like no time has passed? I am lucky enough to have several of those friends! Amber, Joanne, Amy, and I met when we lived in a Russian orphanage 15 years ago. Even though we live in different parts of the country, I still count them as some of my life’s greatest gifts.

And new friends! Last night there were eleven homeschool moms from our learning co-op in my house for a monthly planning meeting. I served roasted pineapple with vanilla ice cream, and the tea kettle stayed busy filling everyone’s mugs. I enjoy opening up our house, and I have the dishes to prove it! I woke up to a few of the remnants from last night…


That’s just a little snapshot into my week! I hope that y’all have a wonderful, wonderful day…and don’t forget to take a few minutes for yourself!
