Perfect Lighting

One thing that I would love to learn to do is photography. There is nothing like capturing the perfect moment!

I loved going out "on assignment" with my husband when he was in college. He took several photography classes and I throughly enjoyed looking for the perfect shot. I remember one assignment very well. (It's actually one of my favorite dates!) We wondered all over downtown searching for different architecture angles. It was exciting looking at the old buildings in an entirely different perspective then I usually would. I actually think I was fairly good at finding some pretty good shots.

Today while playing with my sweet baby, I noticed that the lighting in her bedroom was perfect. I love how these turned out (no editing needed).

Someday I would love to explore the artist side of me and take a photography class.

Tired Slacker Blogging about Nothing

I'm a slacker! I admit it. I honestly haven't had much of a desire to blog this past week. What could I share with you? Not much, life has been rather normal (which is good!).

What have I been doing?
  • Put together store-bought Valentines with Livy to take to her friends.
  • Worked out nearly every day. Total weight loss this year--6 lbs. 1 lb to go to my first mini-goal.
  • Running on VERY little sleep. Lucy is going through a growth spurt and is up at least 5 times a night. I'm lucky to get 2 hours of sleep right now.
  • Dreaming about gardens and spending time outside.
  • Failing at my goals I've set for the week. Too tired to do much of anything.
  • Finally started Livy scrapbook. She turns 3 next month. But that's nothing; overall I'm about 5 years behind. Something I said I would never do.
  • Helped my husband put on a cooking class last night. The Crème brûlée was wonderful!
  • Finally attended a DUP meeting, first one since last May.
  • And cleared out my future craft room. Room is waiting to be sanded and painted.

Do you have those weeks where you are completely unmotivated to do anything?

Just a little project today to celebrate Groundhog's Day.

We made groundhogs for our snack and must say were rather delicious!

(Those are whiskers not crazy alien arms.)
