week in the life 2015 : wednesday photos & words

August 20, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… The morning didn’t go exactly as I wished it to. First of all, Meredith came into our bed at midnight so we still have some work to do there. And Liam started fussing at 5 so I couldn’t get up to do my own morning routine. When he finally finished nursing and I got up at 6, he was awake too. Like I said, you do what you have to do to get ready when you’re a working mom. Sometimes that means letting your toddler sit in the sink and play….

week in the life 2015 : tuesday photos & words

August 19, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… Tuesday morning I woke up at 4:40 a.m. in Meredith’s bed. I hadn’t meant to sleep there, but she woke up multiple times during the night and at some point I fell asleep and stayed. I came into my bed where David and Liam were, and Meredith woke up and joined us soon after. All of us slept until around 7 a.m. I tried to take a picture of us cuddling, but it was too dark and I didn’t want to use flash. The story there is that I took the…

week in the life 2015 : monday photos & words

August 18, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… The story of Monday morning started Sunday night. I put Meredith to sleep in her bed and decided to go to my own bed, which I hadn’t slept in since last week. I don’t know what time, but at some point she came into my bed and I didn’t resist it because I don’t make rational decisions when I’m sleeping. I woke up to Liam wanting to nurse at about 4:30 a.m. and once he fell back asleep I got out of bed around 5:30. I had a nice quiet morning…

day trip

August 17, 2015

What a treat to see Megan, one of my best ever friends, on Saturday. Even better to meet her at the home of Becky and Dan, longtime family friends of ours, and to feel so welcomed despite the suddenness of our descent. And we do not arrive quietly. Megan lives in Nashville now, and I miss her dearly. So when I found out that she would be in Austin briefly (less than a 3-hour drive away) my plans were made. The kids and I hopped in the car – well, after two hours of packing and preparation, I don’t mean to make us sound so carefree – and we were there a little after nine. We spent the day chatting…

project life 2015 : june (& future documenting plans)

August 13, 2015

These are the last Project Life spreads I’m going to make for awhile, and even though I know it’s a good decision I am also really sad about it! As I placed them in the album and paged through the rest of the year, I second guessed myself because it is really so cool to see laid out like this. But I’ve decided to try a new and easier form of documentation, at least during these crazy years with little kids. I’ll talk more about my change of plans in a bit, but first here are the layouts from June, if you’d like to see. These were made using the Project Life app, along with some digital templates by Paislee…
