I love Dropbox. It’s how I keep track and sort all my photos. It’s especially helpful since we have Lightroom only on the “big” computer, but I do most things from my laptop and phone. I can easily upload photos and access them from everywhere, plus share vacation pictures and such with friends and family. No, this is not an ad for dropbox, ha.
Throughout the week I snap photos or screen shots then upload them to a specific “catch all” folder for later use in posts. Sometime pictures accumulate without being used. I was scrolling through them and realized they didn’t really go together in a cohesive post, but I could share them under the guise of a life lately post. Because you know I can’t go a second without documenting and oversharing life, right?
Like this moment:
I always take pictures of what we are doing during our days, but really some of my favorite moments are like the ones above. It was just an ordinary morning, eating breakfast with the girls and I thought to myself- I love this. I grabbed my phone to quickly snap a shot of the ordinary moment that made me extraordinarily happy. Breakfast is like the calm before the crazy in our days.
In other news, David and I sneaked away for a mid-week impromptu date night to GhostFace Brewing.
Local friends, this place is great! It’s in downtown Mooresville and kind of tucked away by itself, but the beer is excellent!
Take the brew master’s advice and try the Saison. That and the Hefeweizen were my favorites. Davidson Pizza Company, which is located inside, is delicious. We also talked with Troy, the owner, for a while and he’s a great guy who is working his tail off. Quite impressive.
That pizza in front nearly did me in with its spice level, and that’s saying a lot because I love spicy foods. Besides the Serrano and jalapeno peppers, the sausage is infused with ghost peppers. Ay-yi-yi!
Nothing a cold beer can’t help though.
Unrelated: I’m embracing my waves more lately (using this stuff my stylist recommended for when I let it air dry) and it’s been a life-saver in this humidity.
I also watched a friend’s girls this week and they were just the cutest. They all picked herbs from the yard and tomatoes from the garden, then used it as the centerpiece of the tea party.
The wouldn’t let me help then came to “invite” me. I even had my name written on a napkin. I felt like such an honored guest!
In less cute news, this one is fighting being in her crib HARD.
The only reason she hasn’t climbed out is because I threaten her that she will get a BIG boo boo. Stellar parenting? Probably not. We’re working on figuring out how to switch her to a big girl bed sooner than later. And if you need me, I’ll be in the corner crying big fat alligator tears that I have no further use for a crib.
Watching our girls grow is the most magnificent thing, but every milestone sure pulls at my heartstrings.
In less sappy happenings, please just look at this picture my friend took on his trip to Canada recently. He set the camera up on a timer outside his hotel window and snapped this gem.
First of all, that scenery. Woah. Add Lake Louise to my “want to visit” list stat. But secondly, that squirrel! I could not stop laughing.
Two more things, then I’m done, I promise.
And finally, Sarah shared a brilliant concept on instagram the other day.
She wrote down what an ideal day would look like. Not shoot-for-the-moon ideal (like a full spa day then flying to New York for dinner), but a realistic, day-to-day ideal. I plan on doing this soon (and posting about it perhaps?) because I think it’s a great exercise in visualization and organization.
Ok, I’ve typed your ear (eyes?) off for today. Here’s a fun task though—
Look at the last picture on your camera roll then tell me in the comments what it is!
I think a camera roll can tell a lot about a person’s life!
Have a great weekend! I’ll actually be in Charleston with some girlfriends (WHOOP!) and will be sure to share all about it on Monday!
