A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.

Chloe: talking to me about all things make-believe, while looking quite"grown".

Gregor: sitting with his Pop, and listening to music.


Favorites from week three:

 This weekly portrait post, featuring sweet kiddos and beautiful knits - a perfect combo.

This lovely collection of wintery photos, full of library visits, and warm light, and cold nights.


I have had a hard time finding time to read blogs, or write anything for my own. I have bits of paper tucked around the house, with notes on them; ideas I have scribbled for blog posts that I mean to elaborate on and develop, but they have been neglected and pushed to the side in favor of doing things like cleaning up the kitchen, or folding laundry, or even doing something I find relaxing, like knitting while listening to an audio-book. I sometimes get to read some blogs on my phone while I am nursing Gregor, but commenting is always tough to do from the phone touch-screen. I am not feeling bad or guilty about any of this, I mean, when it comes down to it, this is just a blog. No biggie. However, I do enjoy writing here, and reading and commenting on my favorite blogs, and I would like to do it regularly. So, all this to say, sometimes it can be hard to carve out time to do what you enjoy, and to ask if anyone has any tips or tricks on how to do it?  


Joining in with sweet Jodi.

  1. Good point and beautiful photos! I used to do the same thing with my journal as you do with the little notes to elaborate on later. It didn't work for me because I have a bunch of unfinished drafts in my notebook now. I try to carve out time when we have a quiet momentere at the house where ev occupied with their own thing and instead of getting right to the chores I take a few minutes to blog a little bit more it takes me about a week to finish one block post.

    1. You know, it's a great idea to take a few moments to write or blog before getting to housework. The housework is always going to be there, but that moment you can take to yourself? It might not come again for a bit. Nice insight.

  2. i'm sure it isn't easy to grow up 2 kids, plus a house to keep tidy, and it's just a logical principle, to be present in your life and let the 2.0 world for those free moments. that's true that you used to publish more before gregor arrive (i miss your posts!) but life comes like this... said that, i wish you a happy weekend!

    1. It is good to be present and "unplug" a bit. I have done more of that when it comes to this space. I still do instagram and stuff, but I like the focus of blogging - saving something to write, focusing my attention on something, thinking a blog-post through... it feels good to finally hit "publish" these days when I can. I have been loving your weekly posts because they include more than just one photo of wendie, and include more of what has been happening during that week. It is a nice way of presenting your week with her.

    2. everything has its phase and you'll finish finding your moments to blog or whatever ;) is chloe at school?
      last year i decided that the proyect from practising simplicity was "too simplified" :) and i prefer to make a little summary of our week, and not just a good photo. xx
