Harlow 16 of 52-31

Harlow is a pretty big fan of the remote for our DSLR.  If I ever leave it out, she will beg to take photos — she’s even totally content just aiming it at the camera, saying cheese and just pretending.  I thought it would be fun to let her conduct her own little weekly shoot.  I was finishing up an email after we had eaten breakfast and came up to change, and she immediately insisted upon going to get her laptop so she could join me.  

She seriously cannot be mine — she is way too stinkin’ hilarious.

Then when she spotted the remote sitting at my desk, she knew fun was about to be had.  Of course in doing so, you can now see my disorganized desk, where I store my current quilt and sewing projects, and all the lint on the couch.  ‘Tis life.

…it was 75º yesterday!  Any day when the sun is shining and it above 60º is a win for me!  Harlow and I can’t get enough vitamin D, so we sneak in a walk to the playground – Harlow’s pwaygrwound, if you ask her – whenever we have a few extra minutes.  I know I say this […]

You know what I mean.  I don’t know about you, but I dreaded the “oh my mom hemmed my jeans” look like it was the plague.  Funny story about jeans, actually.  Back when the trend was going from tapered to wide leg and flare jeans, I decided it would be a good idea to cut my […]
