Summer Vacation is O.V.E.R.

When does life start moving at warp speed?  I really remember things going very slowly through high school.  I remember college like it was yesterday and can sometimes be accused of acting like I am still 18.  But, the truth is, my birthday is next week and I'll be 39.  Thirty NINE!  Oh My Gosh... I remember when my Dad turned 40.  I remember what he was wearing, what his mustache looked like and what we did that night.  How is it possible that I'm a year and a few days away from my own 40th birthday?!

Anyway, I just wanted to post some pictures of my little people and our fun summer.

Little Trunk and A Cute Wooden Table

So with each move I tend to reinvent myself.  After moving to landlocked suburbia, I have reconnected with the love that is thrifting and painting furniture.

I found some steals at local thrift shops and painted to my hearts content!

The trunk was screaming red and cedar lined.  I am more of a beachy calm fan.  So I used chalk paint with dark wax on top.  I also decopaged a map of Oahu on top.  Dream on!

My next project was a little side table.  I might put it next to the front door.  I'm not really sure yet.  I loved the round legs on the table and the height was perfect.  I really struggled to paint it because it was in perfect shape.  I finally decided to paint and not look back.  I'm very happy with the results.  I decided to stencil in Paris Grey chalk paint my wedding anniversary - just to make it more personalized.

I'm linking up to The Power of Paint Party at Domestically Speaking!

Best Face of 2012

It took a lot of searching to find what I considered the "best face" shot of 2012.  This sweet little nugget was my favorite.  3 months is such a tough age, but her face lit up in this shot and I just had to enter it in the I ❤ Faces weekly challenge!

My New Remote

God Bless the remote control shutter release.  I finally found one that works with all 3 camera batteries.  I am THRILLED!

Just a couple from today - good thing you can't smell me.  The sweaty hair knot should be enough to know that I need a shower :)

Just a Sunday Night

Tonight I am vowing to take photos of ordinary events.  The tree branches in the picture in my office are to hold all the beautiful Christmas Cards I get this year.  The kids are growing up way too fast.  How do you document and remember?
