i'm still here...

i have never been so busy in my life!
as you may know, i reopened my etsy shop at the end of january.
the response was OVERWHELMING!
i have literally been cutting labels for 4 months straight.

i haven't had tons of time to take pics...and i've even had to miss out on a few family functions/activities.  :0(
but in between pulling orders, prepping orders, cutting orders, and packing orders, i've managed to sneak in little bits of fun here and there.

glo-stick bath.  thanks, pinterest!

enjoying my flower gardens...

taking silly pictures...


state testing at school...

playing our own home version of the new show "total blackout".  except without the blackout part.

enjoying the first sprinkler session of the season...

planning someone's 10th birthday party...circus theme!

backyard cookouts with friends...

and even managing to sneak in a few quiet moments on the porch...

I love your photography on this post - especially the one of the pencils! I'm working on a week in life project and got inspired for some different photos from you.

@bonita...yep. it takes a lot of time away from my family. my daughter told me she didn't like that I couldn't do stuff with them, so I had to make them my priority.
