Monday Recap

Blogging takes a lot of time. I don't know how some people manage to blog about something interesting with pictures every day! It's a lot of work. One thing I hope to be able to do at the very least is my Monday Recaps. It's a chance to share my Project 365 photos for the week and a way to keep my family up to date on what's going on with us.

Last week was a tough one for me. I spent it stressed out, emotional, feeling out of sorts and just needing a break from everything it seemed. Not that I got one... but I'm feeling a bit better today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Tomorrow feels like the start of the week since today is a holiday. So my intention is to start the week with a renewed hope and positivity plus more energy and optimism.

We got to spend some time with Eric's sister, Angie, her husband, Dan, and daughter, Zion, this weekend. I enjoyed catching up, eating good food, and watching the kids play with their only cousin. At the end of the weekend, though, I was ready to go home and be alone. I was all "peopled out". As much as I enjoy time with family and friends, I am very much a homebody who enjoys the natural rhythm of our family dynamic.

Well, anyway, without further ado- here are my photos from last week.

I hope that your week is filled with fun and memory making!

Make each day count.


  1. This is so cute! Everyone looks great. Jenna's expression with Eric is priceless. Such excitement for her dad and the money in his hand. Marah's and Alex's cuteness inside the tent and in the snow. Jenna looks so tall.What are you guys doing that is so right? Let me answer that........EVERYTHING!

    Love you all,


  2. Jenna looks tall to me until I see her next to her friends and realize how short she is! :)

    Thanks for the encouragement dad. I needed that tonight.

  3. Fantastic pictures! Loved them...even if you are a Vikings fan. I started Project 365 last year and then got behind and stopped sometime in May, so I guess it was more like Project 150 or so. I really, really wish I would have stuck with it. Oh well...maybe some other year.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I always love meeting new "blogger" friends.

    Take care,
