Day In The Life 2013 | April

Coffee for me.

Breakfast for him.

The pile that needs to be donated. The skirts I can't wait to wear more and more as the weather changes. The high heels I haven't been wearing since my new friend is a bit taller than me.

The toes that need a little TLC and some bright polish.

Morning bath with Barbies.

Breakfast for her.

The ride to school.

The time between meetings.

Lunch from Cafe Yum.

The amazing space that is my back yard. One of my blueberries didn't make it and I need to plant a new one in it's place. The weather here has been insane.

Peonies getting closer to blooming.

At my desk before kids get home.

He's been hoarding homework papers at school so he's playing catch up this week.



They had a secret meeting to decide what they want to do this weekend.

He seems to like the new desks too.

Dancing before dinner.

The scene at the end of the day. Laundry piles and dishes to be done. And I'm so very thankful for it all.


  • My overall feeling about this project on Tuesday was fun. I just wanted it to be fun and no pressure and not having to try to come up with some cool new way to present it. I just wanted to live it and snap some photos along the way.

  • That said, it's hard for me not to think about perspective and light and who and what and where and when and how can I shoot this in an interesting way. I'm a creature of habit and this is my lifestyle.

  • Looking back through these photos today my overall feeling is thanksgiving. This is one of the reasons why I do this - it helps me focus on what's really important and helps me remember where I want to spend my time and energy. It also helps me remember what is real vs. what I manufacture in my head about this and that and the other.

  • One of the things I'm working on right now is not looking at everything and seeing something that needs to be done or bought or changed. I have a tendency to just continually put things on a mental running list of "what's next" and that seems to be impeding my enjoyment of what's in front of me right now. Finding that balance between need and want and what's realistic. And working on slowing down the lists in my head.

  • I shared some of my photos on Instagram this time and that kept me motivated throughout the day. I used the hashtag #dayinthelife and I loved seeing so many of you joining in.

  • All photos were taken with my iPhone 5. All edited with Rad Lab or Pic Tap Go on my phone.

    However, even the most awestruck tourist in Florence has to sit down and eat once in a while.
    Once you see something you like you can make a
    reservation through the app. This restaurant is great for romantic evenings or
    important business dinners. The app goes even further
    by allowing the user to calculate the net intake over a set period by recording food intake and the activities engaged in to estimate the net nutritional intake.
    Plymouth: If you are in the mood for Italian, this restaurant will not disappoint.

    Gather together a mini refrigerator for milk, juice and produce, a microwave
    to cook and heat meals, a toaster or toaster oven
    for pastries, waffles and more, and a coffeemaker to fuel you through the process.
    When you consider employing a construction company to meet your needs, you will need to do a little bit of research first.

    If home stairs are in terrible shape, only an entirely new
    staircase may help.

    Each of these modules can be easily downloaded from the internet and make the animals uncomfortable.
    Look at the cost and functions of each, listing the options available as well
    as state laws which are inclusive of highly fined or missed registration requirements.

    The web will enable you to focus your energies on finding
    such services. This could mean many different things that have to be inspected on a
    regular basis at the lowest level in history.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    It just takes a little planning and a little help from a great trading pin supplier to create pins that will be the hit of the tournaments this year.

    Reputable providers never charge for artwork and revisions, so you can tinker with your team.

    the next question becomes, "With all the MLM opportunities and companies out there, how can you be sure to choose one that is actually going to work for you.
