      We have a ledge in our shower that's just about the same height as my shoulders. I used two dry washcloths to hold the camera in place and took two shots (it was really steamy). This is the one I liked the best. It was a bit of a challenge but worth it.

    I'm new to your blog and am loving your photos! I love your concept of capturing daily life instead of only the "biggies". I must concentrate on this more.

    Something about me? At age 45 I learned Spanish and a few years later I earned another degree with 2 more majors.

    I love all the pictures and words today. I am also loving the worksheets you shred for this year. I am getting a lot more documentation down this year as opposed to last year. I am loving just focusing on the pictures and words this week. Thank you.

    What I love about this Week in the Life, is that you can't help but be happier if you are recognizing, taking note of and feeling gratitude for all the moments in your life. Seventy-five percent of life consists of ordinary, everyday moments. The other twenty-five percent is made up of the most amazing things you can imagine, mixed with a few unexpected jalepenos ... and either can occur in the blink of an eye! :)

    Great photos of everyday life. One look at them later will immediately bring back this moment!

    What a joy to find your blog. It's a great reminder to enjoy the simple pleasures life offers us each day! And thanks to Tim for sponsoring today 'cause that's how I found you.
    Right now I am listening to my dh as he mows the backyard. Music to my ears! He brings me joy every day with all he does for me and shares with me!

    I love embracing my many imperfections and making imperfect art. It's liberating to know that whatever I make does not have to be perfect, or even liked by anyone except myself.

    This is my first year doing this and I am hanging in there. I am learning to embrace the imperfection and ride the wave. Learning how to pay attention to my day and trying not to fret that I'm not doing it "right". Thank you thank you for the inspiration!
