What is this?

This blog was inspired by a friend of mine. He has been journaling using photos that he takes daily and publishes to facebook. I am going to attempt to do something similar, but in the form of a blog. I am the wife of a wonderful, godly, fishing addict and a work-at-home mama of three beautiful boys and life, while it can be beautiful, can also be mundane, which can suck the joy out of everyday living. I have so much to be thankful for, and in beginning this blog, I'm hoping to regain my joy. I hope that this will cause me to seek beauty and pleasure in my everyday life. Today is 7-27-11, no significant date, but I hope, the beginning of something really special <3

A couple of parameters for this blog: I will attempt to sum up each day with 1 picture (A collage is okay!). I will keep my posts short and to the point and I will be taking all pictures with my iPhone 4. Enjoy!

Church this morning then some bloggy, family time the rest of the day. Gotta fry some fish up for tomorrow's birthday dinner. Good rainy day.


Opening day.  Si ran the bases with his team, it was so cute.  I liked seeing all of the older teams, it made me excited for the day when all three of my men will be playing baseball.


Had a nice night with the in-laws today.  Went to Farmer Boys for dinner, I ate like a pig because I was starving.  I put in a lot of miles this week already.  Nine on Wednesday and six today with the lovely Sabryna.  Went to Toys 'r' Us and then Freddy's for some ice cream.


Si got his uniform today and took pictures.  Daddy was not happy about that hat!  But, he's so cute and he's loving baseball so much.  It's so fun to watch him play.  Waiting to get the game schedule, also waiting for a car...


Broke in the new Ravenna's today with a nine mile run.  I did it all by myself.  I just needed to jump that hurdle.  Still trying to get faster, but it's not happening as quickly as I would like it to.


This guy is five today.  I can't believe it.  I spent the day with my sister-in-law at the third street promenade.  Had a wonderful time, but couldn't wait to get home to my big five year old.  I got him some special toys in Santa Monica and bought the Muppet movie.  We had some cake and ended our night watching the Muppets together.  Family movie nights are my favorite.


Took the van back today.  We are going to borrow a friends truck for a while, until we find a good minivan.  I did not like the Dodge.  It felt like it would fall apart.  H. had a rough afternoon.  I took this picture because I was staring at him in the rear view mirror on the way to the dealership.  He just needs special attention <3
