Week 17 Candid/Snapshot LeShawn chose a great week for the snapshot theme. Easter made for a great opportunity to take some lovely candid shots. Week 18 Food Food really should have been a simple prompt for me, because I love taking photos of my food, but this week just didn’t seen much in the way…Read More
It’s time to share another 4 weeks of photos with you! Week 13 Centered CompositionI’m very used to working with the Rule of Thirds in my photos, so it was really hard for me to come up with a shot that seemed right being directly centered. In the end, I ended up doing some product…Read More
Tiny humans can be lots of fun to shop for, but sometimes you just don’t have the time, so here are some Milli approved ideas for your toddler’s Easter Basket. Squishy Nursery Light I recently order this cute little bunny light for Mil’s Easter basket, but her daddy beat me to the box and went…Read More
I’ve finished several books since my last bookish post here on the blog and I’m excited to share them with you. Recently Finished I’ve been able to finish half a dozen books since the beginning of the year, which puts me quite a bit ahead of schedule for my reading goal this year We Are…Read More
Week 9 Low Light For the low light challenge, I chose to go with a shot of the sunset. Week 10 From Above I’ve recently been taking a class on Skillshare where I have been learning about flat lay photography, so this was a great chance to practice those skills. Week 11 Photographer’s ChoiceI spent…Read More
I recently made a cake for Milli’s birthday, which was sort of a big deal, because while I love to bake, I rarely have time, now that the tiny human is mobile, and even if I did, I rarely make cakes. For her cake this year, I made a simple white bunt cake, but I…Read More

Milli is a fabulously smart and loving little girl. She loves to give everyone hugs and cuddles (especially mommy and…Read More
I’m pretty proud of myself for making it 8 weeks into LaShawn’s #EyeCandyProject52 photography challenge without missing a photo yet. Week 5 Rule of Thirds The Rule of Thirds is a basic tenant of photography where you break an image down into thirds (both horizontally and vertically) so that you have 9 parts, (think tic-tac-toe)…Read More
I love finding great deals on quality products, so I’m pretty excited about this month’s TBB Asks. Let’s jump right into this Q&A about shopping. Top 3 Shops This is super hard for me, because where I shop depends entirely on what I’m needing to buy. Although recently, I’ve found the site Shoppok which provides…Read More
It’s a bit hard to believe, but Milli will be 2-years-old in just a month. At 30-inches tall, she’s still a tiny thing, but she’s becoming quite the big girl anyway. Mil’s latest obsession is Woody from the Toy Story movies. Her sitter got Buzz and Woody dolls for Christmas and she’s been obsessing over…Read More
A big thanks to Dottie and her quilt guild for sharing their version of the communique quilt, which their guild made as a challenge quilt last year. They did a beautiful job with the throw sized quilt. I absolutely love their use of border fabric. Have you made a communique quilt? buy female viagra online…Read More
