Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 29

Catch the Moment – ROAD TRIP EDITION!!! Epic Road Trip 2018 continues… Have you all ever gone on a long road trip? When I was a kid, probably about 11 years old (I think?), my whole family piled into our minivan and drove from San Antonio, Texas, to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Then we spent a couple weeks there with my grandmother, and then drove back. I remember the drive out way better than the drive back. When we stopped in Texarkana, we stopped in a store and I saw Jelly Belly jelly beans for the very first time and fell in love with them! I also remember thinking Memphis was pretty. I have a lot of fond memories from the trip, and my hope for Homer was that he’d have a lot of great memories from this trip for himself, too. I’m excited I got to see a lot of states I’d never been to before, and excited it all went as well as it did!

Mon, July 16 ~ On Monday, we drove from Spokane, straight through Idaho, into Montana, and stopped in Billings. Idaho and Montana had so many beautiful trees! And I saw 4 bald eagles in Montana while driving!! This was the sunset view from the hotel once we stopped for the night.

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 24

This was the week of double photos! I got a bit off track when choosing photos, and long story short, I ended up with more photos than usual. Bonus photos, if you will! Anyway, it was a good week, for the most part. Summer has arrived! It’s getting warmer and sunnier, and there are a mere four days of school left for Homer. Exciting! And now for the photos ~

Mon, June 11 ~ This little guy has been enjoying car rides way more than he used to! It’s so cute how amped up he gets, often giving many glances over to the car as I take him on walks each day. Ashton walks along, then looks at the car, then at me, as if to say, “Are we going??” He was happy the answer was yes on Monday when I brought him with us to go pick up Joe from work. They looked so cute together when Ashton just jumped into Homer’s lap!

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 22

It was a mix of busy and relaxed this week! Mostly just the usual ups and downs of everyday life, with a few unexpected events (party and sports!), a tiny scare from our tiniest pet, and some calm, rainy days spent reading and playing video games. Joe has been recovering from his really nasty cold virus he’s been fighting, and we all can’t wait until he’s better. Homer and I got in some play time, and some relaxation time, and even some writing time, for both of us!

And now, onto the photos ~

Mon, May 28 ~ Well first of all, I hope everyone had a lovely Memorial Day with their families. I saw Homer’s Memorial Day booklet at the end of the day. They’d done it in school on Friday, and this was the last page. “Normal stuff.” He cracks me up! He turned out to be exactly right, too, he spent the majority of the day playing video games while Joe and I took turns napping, reading, or watching tv. A nice, quiet day.

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 20

Week 20?! Jeez, we’re pretty far into this year already. That’s always so weird to realize. It felt like a pretty busy week, but luckily there was a lot of quiet time, too. And some epic meltdowns, and some stress, but lots of really sweet moments in between. So, just life, as usual, really! Enjoy the photos!

Mon, May 14 ~ I don’t always do bullet journaling on Mondays, but when I do, I do it at Soul Food. Or my house. Or mostly, I just forget lately. Trying to be better about that!

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 19

Hi everyone! This was a fun week, with a lot of variety of photos and experiences. The weather has also been really warm and sunny, so it’s finally Spring-y and even Summery out lately! It’s pretty nice, especially after the long, cold winter we had. I mean, I know we don’t get ten feet of snow like some places, but holy cow it was grey and chilly for such a long time. I’m really enjoying wearing tank tops and shorts these days. It’s awesome! On to the photos!

Mon, May 7 ~ I went for TWO walks on Monday, and actually made it to 10,000 steps that day. It was awesome! I loved walking by the water with a friend. We had a great time, and I got this awesome shot!
