Today‘s Throwback Thursday photo was, apparently, my first Facebook profile picture (or the earliest one I saved), taken in September 2007, a few days after I returned from my deployment. I was 26, Miss C was 4, and an only child then, and for weeks upon my return, she spent most of her time attached to me in some way. We were watching television here when Martin snapped this. It feels like a lifetime ago. She was so tiny!Continue reading
I had to break down the packaging for this to fit in my car. Three other smaller canvas prints arrived today, too. Soooo excited to hang this in our staircase! We are almost ALMOST done being moved in!

We are all home now: unpacked, showered, and fed. Grandpa is still with us, so I declare this second camping trip a roaring success! I was pretty certain we broke him this morning after sharing a tent with four grandkids and having to hike to the bathroom facilities all weekend, but there’s always next weekend to test his limits again!!!!
I’m uploading and editing all my camera photos from our vacation, and came across this one from our day in Pisa, Italy.
Exporting my photos to make some camera space, and found this one in a series taken during our first stop near Lake Como.
She used my phone to document various rooms and decor in the house we were visiting, to include this hall mirror.
I’m so glad these kiddos inherited the need to document!
