89/365 . . . ranunculus

"If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom." — Audra Foveo

The nice man at the Tuesday farmer's market always has the most lovely ranunculus blossoms. I just adore their seemingly endless layers of petals.

I heart faces - dramatic black and white week

Every parent who has tried to take pictures of their kids has probably seen this look staring back at them at some point. And while it is always a pleasure to capture the moments of joy, the belly laughs, the sheer and simple delights of childhood there is something special too in the moody, pensive and sometimes just plain pouty moments. This shot of my oldest daughter captures that latter mood for me.

"Beauty is not caused. It is." Emily Dickinson

Kind of a dark and dreary day here yesterday. During a break in the heavy rain, I found these flowers on the side of a parking lot.



This is the face of a determined child. We went to the local Easter egg hunt yesterday. Lots of photos to go through but at the end of this long day this one stuck out at me. This child is a piece of work. Deceivingly adorable and wickedly funny but, at times, exasperating. I love her to death but some days she wears me out.

Got behind on my uploads and then got totally - and I mean totally - laid out by a bout of food poisoning. Talk about miserable. Back on track!

My oldest lost her first tooth over the weekend and couldn't be more excited. Though all the anticipation was almost too much for her. As she was going to bed I found her sitting on the edge of the bunk and she burst into tears telling me that if the tooth fairy took her tooth she'd never see it again. We managed to broker a deal that would allow for a tooth fairy visit without having to surrender the sentimental first tooth. She's got a second one loose now so we'll see if she's ready to give that one up when the time comes.

This shot is actually a cheat. I took it on Sunday, but I'm attributing it to Monday, because I felt like I was on death's door.
81/365 . . . cheating

My middle child has a major sweet tooth. She is always trying to find a way to have another piece of candy or to fit another treat into her day. I discovered that the basket of Cadbury Mini Eggs (which admittedly are worth risking life and limb for) were not safe on the shelf which I thought was out of her reach.

This is from the night of the elementary school sock hop. My daughter was so excited for an excuse to wear her Halloween costume again.

77/365 . . . March Madness

I'm not actually much of a basketball fan but I love March Madness. Gotta root for the old alma mater!

"Don't look back unless you can smile; don't look ahead unless you can dream."

I'm a little late as it's probably no longer St. Patrick's Day for most of you. I've got a few more hours here.

Not the best diptych but my little guy learned how to blow kisses. Just melts my heart!

73/365 . . . A Day in the City

We spent the day in San Francisco yesterday. It was glorious - warm and clear - and such a treat to have a relaxing family day.

It's been a long week - busy at work and lots of after work commitments. It was great to finally be home today and get to spend a great day with the kids.

I was drawing a little inspiration from For the Love of Color week on Flickr

I got a new computer and now I can't seem to copy my uploads from Flickr. More than a bit annoying.

No time to shoot anything yesterday so settled for a picture of the sleeping baby. I have two thumb suckers and I can never seem to quite capture it right. I'll have to figure it out before they grow out of it.


So mom, how many days are left in this 365 project?

I love this time of year at Trader Joe's. When they have the boxes of daffodils stems on the way in. No water, no fuss, just bunches of waiting to bloom daffodils for a little over a buck. You just can't beat that!
57/365 . . . daffodils


No time to shoot on Thursday so I brought my camera to the elementary school science fair. Let's just say, less than ideal conditions LOL. My daughter did a project on static electricity with her little buddy and was pretty proud of herself for display. Working the ole static hair trick with a ballon here.
