My Year In Pictures: April Week 3

My last set of photos was really a random, disconnected glimpse into our mid-April but this week I’m seeing a definite trend toward happiness and good wishes.  Not only did I stop to appreciate a sign announcing “I’m in the pursuit of happiness” but we had the good fortune to enjoy plenty of flowers, candles and even some birthday cake.

Sunday’s photo is a product shot of our new Lemon Verbena candles and Monday I have a close-up of Ryan’s newest treasures because he says “dinosaurs make everything better.”  Tuesday I slowed down long enough to acknowledge we should all be in the pursuit of happiness and by Wednesday morning it was time to make a wish on dandelion fluff instead of complaining about all the weeds.

Thursday’s photo is a shot of this hardy clematis that thrives in spite of its terrible location and more than a little neglect and Friday night we took Ryan out for a little pre-birthday celebration and plenty of cake. 🙂  Saturday was his big day (Happy 15 Ryan!) and the entire family came together to share a great meal, more cake and a fun round of Monopoly.

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.

My Year In Pictures: March Week 4

If you’ve been following my daily photos on Instagram you might have noticed I’m falling a little behind in my weekly recap schedule here on the blog.  In fact, I’m planning to write the next recap tomorrow so cross your fingers we’ll be caught up by the middle of next week. 🙂

Now that I can see this set of 7 images together in a grid it looks like my eye was once again drawn to some similar colors and themes.  I don’t know if this was a reflection of my mood, preferences or just a product of the season but I’m seeing a lot of soft yellow and natural tones, wood grains, blue skies with clouds and some spring greens represented here.

I found a spare hour Sunday afternoon to work on some packaging ideas for our new soy candles, and Monday morning found Ryan and I back at the Orthopedic Specialist office only to be directed to a third clinic for further evaluation.  The good news about this late recap is that I can share a little more news and tell everyone that his new Doctors are fantastic and I feel like he is really in great hands.  Tuesday’s puffy clouds and blue sky were just plain pretty and by Wednesday evening it was all I could do to snap one fast photo before closing the curtains and falling asleep.

Thursday morning is something I usually shoot around when sharing my morning dog walk photos but today I decided to turn the camera away from the trees and show what was behind my back.  Friday night was for packing orders and this fun set of Cocktail napkins is now on its way to a home in Colorado.  We have three more sets of four available in the Etsy store, each one featuring a unique combination of plaids and/or stripes in red, green and natural linen tones.  Saturday closed the week with an afternoon walk past this fun Easter tree.
