Picture This: Week 2, 2018.

This is a daily series, posted weekly, recapping a daily picture.  It's rarely momentous, there's a strong chance it will involve a cat - or at least an animal - but it inspires me to reflect on each day.  I hope you enjoy, and consider what brings you happiness each day as well.  

January 8, 2018

 Henry's snuggle is so strong, and her expression so grumpy when you turn on the light.


January 9, 2018

New year, new vitamins.  Pictured here we have multivitamin gummies, an iron pill, a cranberry pill, and three hair/skin/nails vitamins.  The multivitamins, iron and cranberry are all for better nutrition, the hair/skin/nails because I want my eyebrows to finally grow out in 2018, I'm losing patience, and I'll resort to this.


January 10, 2018

New pajama pants that stay down all night are making this winter so much better.


January 11, 2018

Caught the musical that Zach and I had swapped with a friend.  It was the strangest show, I really didn't enjoy, but we did find it unintentionally funny.


January 12, 2018

Many of our guests this winter have really enjoyed snow shoveling.  I don't understand it, but we (and our cars) appreciate it.


January 13, 2018

Pizza night.


January 14, 2018

Bathroom progress is picking up its pace.

Sweet, sleepy Henry.


January 2, 2018

After a holiday break filled with sickness, I'm trying to incorporate more probiotics.  I'm trying kombucha.  This is who I am now. 


January 3, 2018

We've seen an increase in assimilation from Denali in the new year.  She's trying out boxes and posts on which the other cats have typically staked claim, and we're seeing a bit of playing with Copper.  We're so proud of little baby cat, never losing her spirit as Henry consistently tries to beat up on her.


January 4, 2018

Planning our next national park adventure.


January 5, 2018

Trying out new pizza dough recipe.  It was the best.  


January 6, 2018

As a part of our presents to each other, we took a knife skills class at Sur La Table on Saturday.  It was so much fun, and we learned so much.  


January 7, 2018

Basement progress.  Nearly all of the walls are complete, the ceilings are close, and the bathroom is making progress.  I am SO excited.

Picture This: Week 52, 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.


December 25, 2017

Christmas at the most festive bar in town.


December 26, 2017

Thankful for a free workout and a workout buddy in my favorite sister-to-be.


December 27, 2017

Veronica gifted us with the most perfect French-press coffee ornament.  


December 28, 2017

Studious Henry.


December 29, 2017

I painted the bay window (four years in the making) and hung woven roman shades.  It made the room feel much bigger.  


December 30, 2017

I'm all about the snow, until late February.  For now, let's keep it up!


December 31, 2017

 New Years Eve.  I was pretty sick, but am rarely too sick for cheese, so we did cheese, honey and crudités while watching The Crown.  The cats slept, as represented by Copper yawning in the background.

Every day, we're a little closer to recognizing Denali as our cat sibling and it's so exciting.


December 19, 2017

Pretty girl Henry modeling.


December 20, 2017

Symphony accompaniment to A Nightmare Before Christmas was one of the coolest things, and the start of a new tradition.


December 21, 2017

Christmas lights.


December 22, 2017

On Your Feet! was such a great musical.  I had mixed feelings going in, but the production was so well thought-out.  We loved it, and it was a great kick-off to the holiday weekend.


December 23, 2017

White Christmas! 


December 24, 2017

 Christmas Eve cinnamon rolls to pair with fresh orange juice in our little celebration tradition.

The looks of these goobers when they're getting impatient about dinner could kill.


December 12, 2017

Denali hunting her crazy.


December 13, 2017

Sleeping and not looking comfortable about it.


December 14, 2017

First round of Christmas pies: pecan and French apple.


December 15, 2017

Sleeping in Steph's old room, surrounded by reminders of that fact. 


December 16, 2017

I love my sister's living room.  She designed the bookcases and we all helped her to build them over the summer.  The room, and her house, is so cozy and reflects her more and more.  I love watching the process and visiting. 

Obsessed with these people and Christmas crackers and Christmas crowns.  I love when we're all together, and this particular weekend was incredible.  Prior to our Christmas celebration, we helped to lay over 2,000 wreaths on veterans graves as a part of the Wreaths Across America event Mum organized, fundraised, and coordinated.  This weekend made me feel so full: of love, of pride, of good food, of laughter.

 Denali, exploring a potential role as a Christmas cat.

December 4, 2017

A noble little Copernicus. 


December 5, 2017

Love Actually at the Cedar Lee.  A classic movie in a Cleveland classic.


December 6, 2017

When Henry gets in the zone, she looks like an otter.


December 7, 2017

DC night lights.


December 8, 2017

Very blurry thanks to the car, but the Kennedy Center has been lighting itself up as a rainbow.  You can't help but smile.


December 9, 2017

I've wanted to visit the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery for quite some time.  It wasn't what I pictured in my head - pun! - but made for a good afternoon.


December 10, 2017

Our pet pirate.

November 27, 2017

We layered rugs in the bedroom, and now we wake up with warm feet.


November 28, 2017

New roof! The new color is a little shocking, but we're so happy to not have to worry about it.


November 29, 2017

Happy Henry.


November 30, 2017

Denali's still getting familiar with everything.  I saw her make the connection this week that she can see us through the window.  She was so excited.


December 1, 2017

My mum started a chapter of Wreaths Across America in her hometown this year.  Her goal was to get half of the wreaths needed to honor the veterans.  Instead, she fundraised enough for the entire cemetery, picked up another cemetery in the process, and also covered all of the wreaths for all of the veterans there.  She crushed it.  I'm so proud of her efforts, all of her work in organizing and promoting, and her dedication.


December 2, 2017

The basement is getting to a point where you can squint and see it finished.  It's inciting all of the anxiety, impatience and excitement.


December 3, 2017
 
Brunch with the Kozlowski babes, with stickers to identify ourselves.  It's too perfect.
