2018 Catch the Moment – Week 12

This was one of the coolest weeks ever, and you’ll see why down below!

078 | Mon, March 19 ~ Spring is trying to come to town! There’s sunshine some of the time, but still lots of temps in the 30s (Fahrenheit). Still, the little blooms, and the pink cherry trees are definite reminders that Spring will be here in full sometime hopefully soon.

079| Tues, March 20 ~ On Tuesday, I really just needed this latte called an Attitude Adjustment. I love this freaking drink! Espresso for the win!

080 | Wed, March 21 ~ Wednesday morning, Joe woke me up. “Garth is calling!” he said. I sat up in a flash, answered the phone and Garth told me the news: Baby Jakob had just been born and baby and Cinnamon were doing great!!! At first I was bummed I hadn’t been able to make it there for his birth. But even if I’d gotten the first call (and my damn phone hadn’t totally crapped out with reception), I still would never have made it, because Jakob arrived all of 15 minutes after Cinnamon was taken to her hospital room! After I got Homer and Joe off to school and work, I showered and headed to the hospital where I got to cuddle this amazing itty bitty brand new precious human! I was so just awed by him that I just took in the moment, and didn’t take many pictures. In fact, I only took one and this is it! I’m so, so happy he’s here. Yay for little nephew Jakob!! And yay for my awesome sister in law and brother, and sweet little nephew, Allister, who is already such a sweet big brother. Welcome to the world, little Jakob!

081 | Thurs, March 22 ~ Homer and I were out Thursday night for Family Dance Night at the school. It was SO cute and fun! On the way back to the car, we saw the beautiful moon and Homer gasped and said, “Mommy, it’s beautiful, take a picture!” So I did!

082 | Fri, March 23 ~ I looked in the mirror and thought, I love this sweater and my hair looks kinda cool right now. So I took this photo, and turns out I look a little dorky and my hair is super frizzy, but what the hell! I’m still going to post it. I like it!

083 | Sat, March 24 ~ I saw the deer again and went back to try to take a closer look at them. I wish this branch wasn’t blocking her face, but look at how cute this deer is!

084 | Sun, March 25 ~ And Sunday, Nonna, Homer and I all got to go visit Garth, Cinnamon, Allister and Jakob! It was such a sweet visit!! It was Homer’s first time meeting his new baby cousin. And he played so much with Allister, too, who loves running around with his big cousin, Homer. They are all so cute and sweet together! I’m so happy we got to hang out; it was great.

Look, they’re both smiling!

Nonna and 3 grandsons!

And I got to feed Jakob!! And Homer helped! ❤

And that was our week! Hope you had a great one too!

  1. That is SUCH a cute sweater! And you looked very cute. :> Isn’t that the pits when you get something right in the middle of your photo? I think that’s why great photography is harder than we think it’ll be. I’ll often find I don’t notice an obstruction until after I’m home and think I had the shot!

    1. Aw thanks Mea!! And yes, omg. Photography is definitely hard for so many reasons. Another common thing that happens to me is I’ll think I got a great shot, and the thumbnail in my camera’s viewer even looks amazing, then I get home and open it and it’s super grainy or slightly blurred, just enough to look terrible. Ha! Oh, photography.
