TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible. I don’t know what keeps me plunking down my hard-earned cash on yet another pack of film, or worse, a whole new camera to love/hate, but here we are. As of this week, I’ve got four instant cameras and two and a half photo albums full of evidence of my misadventures. I do think, though, that I may have finally turned a corner with my latest purchase…

Ocean City

At the risk of winning the “longest time between experiencing the event and blogging about it” award, I thought I’d show you some pictures from our annual Ocean City getaway.  Almost a month ago.

We drove down on Friday afternoon, right after school let out, enjoyed a sunny Saturday, a cloudy Sunday, a rainy Monday, and then reluctantly plucked ourselves off the sun-shiny boardwalk on Tuesday afternoon and headed home.  Why is it that no matter how many days we stay, it never feels like enough?

(If you are viewing this in a reader, you may not be able to see the slideshow below. You should click through to the actual blog post, if you’d like to see the pictures!)

Flickr put these in a random order for some reason, but that’s ok:

When we were packing our bags before this trip, I drew some doodles on a piece of paper, scanned them onto my computer, and turned them into a fun little Beach Weekend Packing List for the boys. I hope to carve out a few moments this weekend to make a version of it that’s generic enough to share (yet highly customizable!), and post it here for you to download. Wish me luck on that – it’s been on my to-do list for the last month!

Happy weekending, everyone 🙂
