Moments of the Month | February 2015

You won’t see any photos of the snow in my February Moments of the Month post.  It was there, alright.  It was everywhere.  Lots of it.  But I was completely OVER it.  So … we spent a Sunday at the …

Moments of the Month | January 2015

I kinda like January, as months go.  It’s calm, compared to the craziness of December.  Things are expected to slow down.  All those back-burnered things on your to-do list finally have time to see the light of day.  The cold …

Moments of the Month | February 2014

Variety would be a good word to describe our February. We did all kinds of different things.  Partly because the weather changed like CRAZY on us.  And partly because we got on a plane for three hours and headed the …

Moments of the Month | January 2014

January was a good month.  It’s been cold and snowy this winter, alright.  But we managed to have lots of fun, inside and out.  There was a quickie road trip to Boston with some McLaughlin cousins, and a few visits …

I’m gonna admit this up front.  While this post is inspired by today’s snowy weather, this photo is not a direct result of today’s snowy weather. Listen — it’s c-c-cold outside.  Sure, I could have joined the crew when they …

New Toy

Everyone likes to play with their new toys after Christmas, right?  I got a new toy this year — it’s called a Lensbaby.  It’s a “creative effect” SLR camera lens that’s meant to create cool effects — a slice or …

Unsolicited Holiday Advice

It’s two days ’til Christmas.  For many people (including me), the real festivities start on Christmas eve, so it’s there’s really only one day before the celebrations start.  Wait — who are we kidding?  The entire month of December has …

Moments of the Month | August 2013

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a …

Moments of the Month | July 2013

If you asked me a few months ago what July of 2013 would end up looking like, I’m pretty sure I would have shrugged my shoulders and made a “who knows?” kind of face.  Breezy Point has been through a …

Moments of the Month | June 2013

I can’t talk about July before I remember June, can I? June always flattens me.  I’m all for sports, school visits, school carnivals, end-of-year picnics, graduations, parties, and Father’s Day, of course …  but sometimes it seems a shame that …

Boogie Boarding! | July 2013

Funny thing about 100 degree weather.  You find yourself much more in the mood to play around with photos of summer fun than to go outside to HAVE summer fun. I’m not complaining.  It doesn’t take a lot of BTU’s …

Arizona and The Grand Canyon | March 2013

I love summer mornings.  My family has become a “sleep late and then read or mope around quietly in the morning” group of late.  This means that mornings, for me — the early riser — are delightfully quiet.  I can …

Moments of the Month | April 2013

I didn’t take too many personal pictures in April.  Probably because I was feeling overwhelmed by the number of photos I taken during our Arizona trip at the very end of March.  Lots of things happened in April, anyway.  Easter, …

Moments of the Month | November 2012

Someone said to me toward the end of November that I wouldn’t remember much of the month.  Just like the amnesia you get after giving birth and being home with a brand new baby, she said, you tend to only …
