My husband redesigned my photography website and I’ve decided to add this blog to it instead of having a completely separate blog, so now I’ll be sharing all of my sessions with you here. I’m starting today with my own kids fall session. I took these at Lauritzen Gardens and am so happy with how they turned out. Although I will say that Hudson was so into posing for me this time because that meant he had to stop playing his real life Super Mario game with daddy. Harper however was totally into it.
Loving homeschooling. I’m so happy we chose this path.
Disliking the early darkness, but who doesn’t?
Enjoying all of the time we’ve been spending outside this season.
Feeling grateful for our health and a fairly smooth surgery for Harper last week.
Listening to James Bay.
Watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel. I know, but I can’t help myself.
Reading The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton and Nature Anatomy by Julia Rothman to the kids for school.
Wearing Friday Flannel Jamberry nail wraps. They are super cute.
Starting my Christmas shopping. I like to pick things up here and there so I’m not buying everything all at once.
Sewing the kids super soft blankets for Christmas. Nothing complicated. Just simple, cozy blankets.
Planning out some holiday crafts that I’d like to have ready before December.
Baking lots of pumpkin goodies. So far donuts, bars, and bread.
Starting to look at houses again. We have totally outgrown ours and I really want a fireplace.
Needing to start meal planning again. I’ve been having a hard time coming up with meals everyday.
Hoping to take the kids to the new Peanuts movie sometime this week.
Taking the kids on an outdoor field trip this afternoon so we can enjoy this mild weather as much as possible before it’s gone.
I finally finished my eleventh book. (I’m so not going to meet my goal of 15…) I read Peace Like A River which has been on my must-read list for a while. I started it months ago, put it down to read a couple other books and just recently picked it back up again.
The book follows the story of an 11-year-old boy named Reuben “Rube” Land as he recounts a period of his childhood during 1962 when his older brother, Davy, flees after being charged with murder. It’s a story of miracles and ordinary everyday magic.
I truly enjoyed this book. The story was engaging and the characters were likable because they were so realistic. They were flawed, but lovable. It was easy to relate to each one of them. I would recommend that everyone read this book. In fact, I already gave it to my mom.
