My Week That Was


I’m a big believer in taking tons of pictures.

The scrapbooks I made for my girls and the boxes upon boxes of old school prints that I have stored away can attest to that.

So when I’m out and about, I love capturing moments on my phone and on my Instagram.


Here’s my week that was.

What’s better than coming out of winter hibernation, sitting under a weeping cherry and sipping a margarita … with a couple of pink flamingos looking on.

Every time I pass this barn on my walk, I envision myself living in it.

Walks in the woods make me happy and set the mood for the rest of my day.

A trip to Newport RI had my twins digging in the sand on a cold, windy day.

Here’s to taking time to tiptoe trough the tulips and snapping a pic of them in the process.

How was your week?

  1. Great pictures! I especially love the picture your daughter took as well as the one of your walk in the woods. If they were mine, I would blow them up and frame them. The woods would be my peaceful pix across from my desk and the balloons would be in our den to give it a splash of color. All of them are great!

  2. Isn’t it wonderful how our technology can capture the moments and memories so vividly that you can share it with others like me, and we feel it too? thanks for sharing your week Kelly. Mine was uneventful, planning out a my sons first communion party for sunday. 🙂

  3. I haven’t tip toed through the Tulips in some time. Last night I actually went through gasp, 7 months of pictures that had not even been uploaded to order prints. Now maybe they stand a chance of making it into photo albums. Love the pics of the beach with your girls. Too cute!

  4. Thank you so much for taking us along with you on your walk! Your girls are so adorable! Beautiful smiles.That barn is amazing! I’ve always wanted to make a barn into a house as well. I’d love a great room and big fireplace…dreamin’! Took my class on an eagle walk this morning. There is a nest about a mile away from us. One of the parents brought in a big fish! The kids were fascinated! We were so fortunate to see that. They couldn’t wait to tell their parents. Great way to start the week.

  5. Ahh thanks for my spring fix – still taking it’s sweet time here, waiting for some green and some buds on the trees! Your girls are so pretty! Love catching a glimpse of your week, I need to hop on instagram myself one of these days…

  6. Beautiful pictures! I always love taking pics of things! My family teqases me sometimes as i’ll take pics of an interesting leaf, bug, an old truck, whatever strikes me. It’s nice to be able to look back and remember the day through photos! Hugs, Leena

  7. Your pictures are so fun! I love the one with the old house brought back to life! And your back yard looks amazing!

    Have a great day rock star!

  8. Love the pic of the woods! I have miles of beautiful woodland behind my home, and I do believe that you haveinspired me to explore them more. Fairy Finding Expedition anyone?
