2018 Catch the Moment – Week 5

It’s been a very hard week in our neck of the woods. The week started out fine, like any other, and then life hit us with a wholly unexpected curveball. And now we grieve the loss of our sweet kitty, Tails. I’m still just shocked, and of course, terribly sad, too. In a time when the world feels like it’s been knocked off its axis, I’m grateful for friends who’ve reached out, for hugs, for family, and for photography. Taking photos, learning about editing, leaning into my camera… those have been a support too, something to fill the space where words cannot be found.

Here are this week’s photos…

029 | Mon, Jan 29 ~ After such a somber intro, I feel a little silly posting Monday’s photo, but here it is: Gru! Homer and I built an early birthday present of his from his Auntie Maria and Abuela. It’s like Lego, but it’s MegaConstrux, and this one is Minion themed. It was a lot of fun to put together with Homer.

Catch the Moment 366 – Week 39

267 | Sept 23, Fri – It’s the most wonderful time of the year… OKTOBERFEST!!! Joe and I got to go out on a date night, which we pretty much only do about once a year for Oktoberfest. It was rough trying to get out the door, many obstacles stood in our way, and then somehow, the stars aligned and it all worked out. Our amazing friend, Sarah, babysat for us, and then we were off, drinking beer, enjoying some brats and sauerkraut, and dancing the Chicken Dance. It was seriously a super fun night, and then when we got home, Homer was snug in bed, soundly asleep. So glad it all worked out so perfectly!

Catch the Moment 366 – Week 37

253 | Sept 9, Fri – My baby boy started KINDERGARTEN!!!!!!!!! I cried many times leading up to this day, but on the actual day, we were in such a hurry that we got there just in the nick of time and had to say a whirlwind goodbye! So no tears from either of us! Crazy, but worked out in the end, I guess!
