A Lovely Day

And I know it's gonna be…A lovely day

Good Stuff – Day 4


  • early morning – so quiet, still and dark
  • big ole family bed
  • fleece
  • An happy to be running again – this time in minimalist shoes
  • Photoshop open all day
  • hearing Mo say to a friend, “It was fun playing with you!”
  • making caramel corn

Good Stuff – Day 3

No photos today but plenty of Good Stuff.

  • the man in the bright orange turban on the way to daycare
  • lunch with An
  • coding all day
  • nice coworkers (Kevin brought me his air popper)
  • Mo’s new school notebook
  • Mo on the monkey bars
  • soft pants
  • my handsome little boy

Good Stuff – Day 2


  • WFH days
  • leftovers
  • the ecourses, again
  • this morning – Mo helping B pour cereal, everybody out the door on time
  • knowing we’ll find the right school for Mo next year (but still worrying about it)
  • going the “tree way” on the way to school so we can see all the leaves turning
  • clean car
  • a new autumn dream book

31 Days of Documenting Life’s Good Stuff

I decided on my 31 Days theme, finally.   I waffled between a number of ideas but finally landed on a project I’ve been brainstorming about for quite some time.  It’s a personal project of documenting “the Good Stuff” for an extended period of time.   I’ll be keeping a list of “Good Stuff” and documenting them visually via photos for each day in October.  I think of it as gratitude journal meets Project Life in some ways.

For years I’ve had a section of my journal with lists of the “Good Stuff” – the little things and big things in life that make me happy.  Things like a good Toffee-Nut latte, my husband doing the dishes, the way B pats me when he wakes up,Mo’s excitement about something, or wrapping up a great web project.  Looking back at these lists is like an instant snapshot of what life was like at that particular time.  I’ve never quite managed to combine photos with the Good Stuff lists though.  I think 31 days is a manageable amount of time.  Who knows, maybe it will kick start a larger project for 2013.

So…let’s do it.  “31 Days of Documenting the Good Stuff” begins today.

Let’s Get This Party Started!

Alrighty…let’s get this party started!  New blog, cute new theme, some purple polka dots and 31 days of something-something.  I think i’ve landed on my 31-days theme.  October should be just lovely – I am enrolled in two great ecourses that begin tomorrow and I’m excited to get started writing again.

I’m going to spruce the sidebar up a bit and then get some freelance work done.  Tomorrow?  31-days!
