7 Days:7 Life

DSC_0222 (2)So I thought a lot about what I wanted for my last photo for the last 7 Days run. Of all the shots, this was the one that appealed to me most. This is pretty much my life in a nutshell. Comfy pants, bed head, my kids scattered around me, my house kind of a mess, and everything oh-so-colorful. My life is 180 degrees different than it was when I joined this group and I am utterly and completely overwhelmed with how happy I am with this reality. Like my living room, my life is kind of a mess but it’s gloriously colorful.

I’ll miss this group and all the lovely people I’ve met because of it. I hope that I’ll get a chance to talk with all of you again. Until then, Happy everything!

Coffee makes life possible.

Mmmmm. I think it’s time for a second cup.

*7 Days is a group on Flickr that I belong to. We take 7 days of self-portraits each season.

5.13.365: Braid Wednesday on a Friday

Do you know what’s great about Flickr? You can find anything you are interested in over there. You can be looking for something to do with your hair and stumble across an entire group of people devoted to braiding their hair every Wednesday. Then you can spend an hour looking through hundreds of pictures of people with gorgeous locks and then spend another hour trying to get your wiry, curly hair to do something similar. The next thing you know, it’s four o’clock and the kids are getting off the bus, the pile of laundry on the couch is still waiting and the dishes are still sitting in the sink.

But your hair looks pretty and you feel oh-so-fancy. The internets are fabulous.
