Valentine's Day Wreath: In pictures

Valentine's Day Inspired Project #2: Completed

It's too small for the wall....

It's a little messy and imperfect.  I blame that on the fact that I'm not very detail orientated & I'm not a perfectionist-it's the whole "I don't care what the back of my hair looks like, it's not like I can see it." mentality. 

But it's pink, and it matches the mantle!

I am loving this.

At first I kind of felt ridiculous for taking photos everyday.  LOTS of photos.  But then I was like- "Why the hell shouldn't I?"  So some days I might take 1 photo, other days I might take 101 photos.  All that matters is that I am capturing what I love most about my day.  My goal is to update my photography website every Saturday night with my "favorites" from that week.  I don't know if I'll actually keep up with it, but that's the beauty of making your own challenge, there are no rules.  So far, these are my favorites from this morning.  

Also on a side note: There isn't anything more relaxing then sitting down during the little's nap time, having a cup of tea (while it's snowing I might add-YAY!), and editing my heart out.

Continuing with the "if you can't be them, join them" theme, Ingrid and I spent a good chunk of time this morning outside, where we played several games of Simon Says, and ran around the house about 52 times pretending to be Rapunzel escaping from Mother Gothel.  It was a good time.  I took 131 photos.  Thank the Lord for the digitalization of the SLR.  I edited that number down to 30/ I will share a few with you!

Ingrid plays the recorder with soul. (Actually she is just copying this video)

"Did you hear that?"

Ingrid loves all things numbers & alphabet.  She can repeat her ABC's pretty well and loves to count!

Happy Tuesday!

Monday quickly.

My heart swells with love for this girl more and more everyday.  

This morning's highlights:  Tying blankets up as cape's, which clearly indicates to Ingrid that we were playing "Rapunzels".  Makes sense.  We had some good fun.

Typically, I am a Minnesota winter girl all-the-way.  I love when it's so freezing that my toe's hurt, it means that I've been outside and I deserve to go inside, curl up by the fire & drink some hot tea.  But, this year January is clearly having some identity issues as it disguises itself as April.  So we figure, if you can't beat em'-join em'.
