My Year In Pictures: May Week 1

I feel like we’ve finally turned the corner toward a long, warm summer and now instead of rushing outside at the first hint of blue sky I’m secretly looking forward to some rainy days so I can catch up on inside chores.  Spring 2016 has been picture perfect here in the Pacific Northwest and this set of 7 photos shows you what we saw in the early days of May.

Flowers started blooming weeks ahead of schedule and by Sunday afternoon this lovely succulent was well on its way to summer fullness.  Monday’s warm temperatures meant I could start brushing Finn outdoors again, sparing the house from the clouds of white dog hair and Tuesday this happy little Beluga rode the elevator with us to Ryan’s appointment at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Wednesday was May 4th is known around here as #StarwarsDay (may the fourth be with you) so Ryan had to wear one of his many themed t-shirts.  Thursday we needed some potato chips for a quick pick-me-up snack and by Friday night I was back to work in our Etsy store with a fresh batch of Dryer Balls ready to photograph and ship.  Saturday morning I woke up ready for a walk and this pretty spot under the trees marked my turn around point.

Coming soon I’ve got a great set of new photos almost ready to share here from our latest spring adventures and if you’d like to follow along in real-time don’t forget I post my daily photos on InstagramTwitter and Facebook. If a once-a-week blog read is more your speed my weekly recaps will continue here along with caption notes containing editing information for each photo.

  1. Sounds like a good week there, Lisa. That Beluga picture inside the lift is so cute. That is such a happy face 🙂 I’ve always been having potato chips as a pick me up snack this week. I have been making my bag of chips last for a few days, eating small portions each day 😀

  2. o that pink flower is so nic e- and I still need to get some dryer balls – sometime I will!
    and we have had too much rain here – all caught up on indoor stuff – ha!

    1. It looks like we’ve got second day of indoor stuff here Y including an afternoon showing of Captain America for Ryan. 🙂 I don’t mind a little rain but hope the sun is back soon!

  3. looks like a lovely week. Finn’s delightful face is actually perfect for this week’s photo challenge! pets are wonderful, aren’t they? but that fur! oh well, better some fur on the furniture than no pet in the house 🙂
