nothing but love

day 30 photo challenge prompt: something that makes you sad
It makes me sad that my pup is turning 12 this year. I want her to be part of my family forever.

round and round

Day 29 photo challenge prompt: circle
I didn't intend to post yet another photo of my little gal because I fully realize it is getting out of control :). I just noticed late tonight that I hadn't taken a challenge photo and this shot that I took earlier today just happened to fit the topic quite well.
Only one more day to go on the photo challenge. It has been a lot of fun to pick up the camera daily but I am looking forward to writing more in depth again in May.
I hope you had a great weekend!

Day 28 photo challenge prompt: 1 pm
This is what was happening at 1pm in our house. The dog was patiently waiting for her lucky break to dash past the jolly jumper. (The first photo cracks me up. It's as if the dog is pleading with her eyes, "for the love of god, get me the frick out of here!")

happy baby pose

day 27: somewhere you went.  (taken Friday) Our mom and baby yoga class.
It is pretty hilarious taking yoga with a group of moms and babies. There is nothing serene about it. At least one baby is losing it at some point. Mine likes to make fart sounds with her mouth when the instructor talks. So, at least she has our sophisticated style of humour.
I will post today's photo later today. I hope you're having a great Saturday morning!

day 25 photo challenge prompt: looking down
This is what I see when I look down. I had to physically restrain myself from posting yet another baby photo :)
We had friends over last night and I completely forgot to post this yesterday. There will be another posting later today for the 26th photo.
I hope you're having a great morning!

day 24: something you are grateful for
I am so grateful for time. I feel like this maternity leave is such a gift. Time to spend with this little face. Time to spend with friends and family. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

going to great lengths...

day 22 photo challenge prompt: the last thing you bought
This maxi dress for Summer was the last thing I bought. It goes down to my ankles and is super comfortable. It's the first full length dress I've bought but I've been a bit shy to wear it out yet because it is so long. Would you wear a maxi dress?

Day 21 photo challenge prompt: bottle
Ah, I remember the days when the word bottle would conjure up images of delicious bottles of wine, how times have changed!

friends, the next generation

I had so much fun today watching our little one hang out with our friends' children. They are so sweet to her. I am so madly in love with these little faces. I hope you had a great weekend! I feasted on German food and belly laughs with friends Friday night, shared delicious beers with the gang Saturday night and noshed tasty birthday cake on a sunny patio today with our oldest friends. My cup feels full. My diet, however, feels forgotten.  Did you get out and enjoy the sun? 


day 15 photo challenge prompt: sunset
Tonight's sunset was lacking to say the least. That being said, there is still a quiet beauty watching the day slip away into the night.

breakfast at tiffany's it ain't

Day 11 photo challenge prompt: Where you ate breakfast

Two hours after the baby gets up she has her first nap of the day and I get 20-30 minutes of delicious uninterrupted time to myself. Oatmeal, coffee and time to catch up on articles/emails/texts. I love this little sliver of time.
