Anyway, it was an incredibly fun weekend, but also one of our more challenging ones as well. I kind of hate that they go hand in hand sometimes and I totally don't mean to be a downer, but eh, it's real life and some days are like that. We had company all weekend which was lovely, and we left town and celebrated a sister in law's birthday. I got sick from what I like to call "snuck-in-gluten" and yesterday was no fun while I dealt with that... then we dealt with a crazy kid issue that continues to come up again and again, (seriously?) and I'm not gonna lie, it spun the remainder of my weekend right down the drain. Parenting=not for the faint of heart. My man and I fought about it and then I spent most of the day today just crying. What?!
And it's supposed to be St. Patrick's day and all celebratory and stuff!
Anyway I needed some cheer to lighten my heart, so I listed my favorite photos as prints and wrapped canvases, spent some time back in bed praying through stuff, and rested, and got the crock pot going with corned beef and cabbage for everyone tonight. After a pot of cheery blooming tea I'm almost as good as new.... almost. Some days just have to run their course, yes?
spring cheer to spread around your house, here's what I've got for you! (Not sure if you remember these wild daisies from last summer... my man pulled over to the side of the road so I could hop out and snap this photo. It cheers up something deep inside my soul. (Click here to shop)

all time favorite. This is from a little outbuilding that they call the "goat barn" on the property where my man grew up as a little boy. He had countless adventures alongside his trusty Irish wolfhound pup, named Buster. His grandma (who's technically not his real grandma) lives there now and I've taken way too many shots of my kids standing in front of it. It's truly a magnificent, chippy, turquoise wonder, and if this barn ever falls down and they ditch this door, I'll be first in line to salvage it. Just saying.(Click here to shop)
vintage typewriter. I've loved sending off the other images of this baby into your homes, but now I am offering the first full frame shot of it. We took this photo, sitting on my picnic table with Adrain and Ava holding white boards up behind it and the rain literally started as my last photo was snapped. True story. Oh and Ava wasn't wearing shoes. It's like... early March and 40 degrees but hey, why wear shoes outside? Kids. Ha! (Click here to shop.)
All images are available as either photo prints or as wrapped canvases. So, that's all I've got today...I hope everyone has a lovely St. Patrick's day. I can't wait for some corned beef and cabbage! Did you do anything fun for this holiday?!
Oh and I'm sharing my favorite tips on photographing your kids, here today! Would love for you to pop in and say HI!
