Picture This: Week 2, 2017.

Obligatory prelude: I've done a picture-a-day project for the past few years. Per usual, I debated the continuation of this series, but do appreciate the motivation to capture the ordinary and the connection it provides. It's obviously continuing another week, or until I decided to wrap it up.

This split leaf fern makes me so happy in the corner of our bedroom.  Here's hoping I can keep her alive.  


January 10, 2017

Thank you, Mr. President.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.


January 11, 2017

One of their favorite Christmas presents is a box their present came in.  


January 12, 2017

A solid day of rain took out all the snow and brought in flocks of birds.  All those dots are birds! Copper was so excited. 


January 13, 2017

Henry wasn't into twinning.  This took persistence.  


January 14, 2017

Into the Woods, in a deconstructed performance.  I both enjoyed it and felt like it was more of an emotional rollercoaster than I bargained for.


January 15, 2017

 Brunch with babes.

Picture This: Week 1, 2017.

Obligatory prelude: I've done a picture-a-day project for the past few years. Per usual, I'm debating the continuation of this series, but I do appreciate the motivation to capture the ordinary and the connection it provides.  The debate circles more around what to do with this blog.  I hesitate even referring to this as a blog in comparison to the blogs I read and as so well constructed.  In comparison, I'm taking pictures on my iPhone because that's the best camera I've got.  I do want to document more in this space beyond the weekly recaps.  I see the value for posterity's sake, but it's given me pause.  I can see myself veering into a very reflective and overly thoughtful territory.  Until then, I have a daily reminder to take a photo, and we'll see how long that lasts.

Posted on the couch to start the year, battling the start of a cold with my furbs.


January 3, 2017

Henry girl.


January 4, 2017

Always.


January 5, 2017

Copper's corner.


January 6, 2017

New frames and seasonal swaps.


January 7, 2017

Another productive Saturday.  We have more lights, more walls, and the start of drywall.


January 8, 2017

 Late night Sunday work, ever-supervised by our fur babies.  They're probably the most ready for the basement to finish.

Picture This: Week 53, 2016.

Obligatory prelude: I've done a picture-a-day project for the past couple years. I usually debate its continuation annually, but it was a no-brainer this year.  This series keeps me posting when nothing else will write itself.  I will be trying to post more regularly otherwise! Besides, as last year, I like it as a part of posting the ordinary and capturing daily life. Check out past posts through the picture-a-day tag.

My grandparents yard is one of my favorite places.


December 27, 2016

Plotting. 


December 28, 2016

Breaking apart the t-shirt blanket for an expansion with my lead supervisor.  


December 29, 2016

Henry's our morning cuddler, snuggling up and stealing pillows.


December 30, 2016

Bathroom jail.


December 31, 2016

Last year of the night with some of my favorites.

 First things first: beating Voldemort in the new year.

December 19, 2016

I'm back in the blood business.  


December 20, 2016

A long night of chatting, cheese plates, and ladylock making yielded no pictures but the drying pins after the process. It's one of my favorite traditions.


December 21, 2016

Yoga all the time to help move me through this season.


December 22, 2016

Presents from my little furbies.


December 23, 2016

I woke up from a nap to find Copper reading over Zach's shoulder.  They're the sweetest sometimes.


December 24, 2016

Fresh squeezed orange juice.  Two and half bags of oranges later, Zach outdid himself on brunch and set himself up for a tradition.


December 25, 2016

 Christmas in Michigan is so much about this fireplace.  My grandparents built their house - and this fireplace with stolen rocks from state parks, if my uncle is to be believed - and we woke up many mornings to the stockings my grandma knitted us overflowing on the mantle.  Holidays in a house full of memories, full of laughter and shouting, and everyone full on too much food - it's so much of what I love.

Simple wrappings.


December 13, 2016

The holiday reception at Playhouse Square included watching Christmas in Connecticut.  It was hilarious! We're old-time movie converts.


December 14, 2016

It turns out we only have woodland and tropical creature cookie cutters.  


December 15, 2016

With our basement under renovation, and furniture on top of furniture upstairs, we opted not to decorate this year beyond our outside lights.  Zach swung for a baby pine this week, and we selected a few ornaments from our travels to decorate.  Later this spring, we'll plant him.  I think this is the start of planting our trees.  


December 16, 2016

Christmas celebrations begin with Veronica's go-to 90's pose, and the new addition perched on her shoulder.


December 17, 2016

Phipp's at Christmas is amazing.  I haven't been here in years, and snagged lots of ideas I hope the deer won't eat.  


December 18, 2016

 Steph stopped to visit Copper and fix his beloved scratching post, completing his Christmas present.  The heart eyes from that boy were so literal.

The metro got some futuristic cars in my leave.


December 6, 2016

DCA at Christmastime is my favorite.


December 7, 2016

Henry looks so cuddly when she sleeps.  Her dreams are all the sweeter under our new art.


December 8, 2016

Copper kept literal tabs on me Thursday, a paw on me most of the day.


December 9, 2016

Our friend makes the best pizza. 


December 10, 2016

Creeping on our own house and loving the Christmas lights.

 She's done it.  She's finally killed the butterfly.

In the winter, the kittens like to tuck in the curtains, catching both the heat vent and the window.  I love the little tails and paws that lurk out. 


November 29, 2016

Soup for days.


November 30, 2016

Winters are for afghans by grandma.


December 1, 2016

Maybe the best and most perfect looking cookies from dear friends - don't they look store-bought?? So perfect and delicious.


December 2, 2016

A quick run down the National Mall, complete with a stop at the National Christmas Tree. 


December 3, 2016

Holiday party at the Smithsonian National History Museum!


December 4, 2016

 I missed a picture of brunch on Sunday with our aunt, uncle and cousins.  We're so lucky that between our travels, we'll see nearly all of our family this month.  Afterward, we continued being touristy and strolled through Arlington National Cemetery.  The view back to DC is incredible from the hill there.
