The sun is shinning! After the last few weeks of snow storms, its a welcome change. I even spied a little green in our grass. After a busy weekend on the slopes it was nice to have a day back into the routine.




Thank you Rebekah for taking the time to encourage, finding beauty in the ordinary. ten on ten sets found here

Today began wearing flip flops to school drop off and ended with full snow gear. Such is the way here. I’m thankful we took the time to get new snow tires today on the car. On the way home from gymnastics, the cars looked more likely to be playing a game of Tetris than traveling in straight  lines. Seeing as how we won’t get above freezing for the rest of the week, i’m really hoping for some snow days.

Looking over the pics i took today, i could prob just call it 10 of Danica but she’s at such a fun stage, its hard not to just follow her around with the camera 🙂



10 on 10 October

big day around here… Trader Joe’s opened! now my mom can stop brining a second suitcase full of goodies every time she visits 🙂 it was a rainy day filled with errands and friends. I’m looking forward to restful weekend before the man of the house takes off again.  visit rebekah and other inspiring collections here.

10 on 10 September- Feelings of Fall

there’s definitely a feel of fall in the air around here…dare i say theres even snow predicted tomorrow night! instead of lamenting the inevitable. I’m trying to embrace my favorite things about fall. bring on cozy sweaters, comfy boots and amazing colors of the leaves.

Good Ole 10 on 10 August 2014

Wow! how is it August already? Only one full week of summer vacation left 🙁

To be honest i felt a little inadequate starting my set today. i post the same set every month. does anyone really need to see more pictures of my kids? but looking back, i’m thankful that i took the time to capture the day. there were some sweet moments and Im glad i had the motivation of 10 on 10 to stop and  freeze them”in image”. even if its still just a bunch of pictures of my kids. 🙂


Can’t wait to glimpse into Rebekah’s day and browse around the other 10 on 10 sets 🙂


This past weekend, we headed east, to join some friends for a little Nebraska camping adventure. Turns out if you drive out into the Middle of Nowhere, Nebraska you’ll find the largest lake around, Lake McConaughy. So Thankful for friends who came far more prepared than I.  The 6 adults, 11 kids and 3 dogs got along fabulously. totally worth the drive, the sunburns and the laundry 🙂 I think i see many more camping trips in our future!
