list 6 : with me at all times

May 6, 2013

It’s time for Book of Lists! Still loving this little project. When it came down to it I really didn’t have all that much to put on this list! Just the basics. my phone something to read lip ointment God In the picture is Lanolin, which I use on my lips, the book I’m currently reading (The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler), and my phone. I hate the case it’s in and I’m super excited that I have a new one on the way. Each month when I get out my Instax camera to take a picture for this project I’m reminded of how much I love it. I’m thinking of doing a month-long Instax challenge sometime this year just for…

list 5 : today i saw

April 8, 2013

Before I share today’s list I just wanted to say that I still love this quick and fun monthly project. I know I don’t have many people participating, but as I was putting this together (in less than 20 minutes) I was thinking about how perfect it is for me. It’s extremely fast and easy to do, something I can work on even when Meredith is around. It gets me using my Instax camera that I really enjoy but tend to forget about. It’s an excuse to play with paper and washi tape and write with my nice pen. And it captures a snippet of life at the moment. I am planning on sticking with this indefinitely, until I lose…

list 4 : i’m good at

March 4, 2013

This month’s Book of Lists topic is “I’m good at.” This was an encouraging thing for me to think about right now because the last month has been kind of crazy and I haven’t felt all that good at life. But I know that’s just the stress and in reality I am good at a lot of things.  mothering singing organization nursing (both kinds) keeping in touch getting enough sleep routines There are more little things that I know I’m good at but these are the ones that came to me and encompass a lot of my strengths. On a side note, I think I look sickly or something in the Instax photo I took, but I love the way Meredith’s eyes…

list 3 : perfect day

February 4, 2013

Well it’s time for Book of Lists, and the topic is “perfect day.” I chose this topic a month ago when I was anticipating my birthday (which is tomorrow) but now it just seems ironic since I’ve had such a difficult start to the week. My heart is heavy because my beloved uncle, my dad’s twin, passed away yesterday. He was sick and it wasn’t entirely surprising, but he took a downward turn very quickly that we didn’t expect. I have so many thoughts and feelings but mainly I’m sad. Just going through the motions with things for now, so to occupy myself for a short while I made my list to reflect my ideal perfect day. sleep in 70…

list 2 : looking forward

January 7, 2013

First thing: Happy birthday to my husband David. He’s the best and I love him. <3 *** Welcome back to the Book of Lists! Today’s topic is “looking forward.” As you can see I kept the same format as last month. I still love the way it looks and how easy it is to put together. I decided to keep it simple and just talk about the things I’m looking forward to right this moment. starting on a quilt next date night Lauren moving to Katy (2 days!) Rereading LOTR Holding conversations with Meredith giving her a sibling I got this shot from my Instax on the first try! So happy that it was easy this time around. A quilt…
