Test Title 1

{simple things} my life in 20 photos

my friend ellen (black and white and loved all over) did a blog post over the weekend called "storytelling in 30 photos" (something she snagged from one of her fav blogs). as much as i enjoy blog posts on what outfits people have put together or their favorite etsy finds ... i love catching a glimpse into the life of the woman behind the blog.

inspired (but overwhelmed with 30 pictures) ... here's my modified version:

1 // me ... and the dreaded self-portrait

2 // my love ... my sweet husband, wade.

3 // my family ... the extended version.

4 // something that makes me happy ... fish tacos + tortilla soup from mas tacos por favor.

5 // back when ... back when i could get a tan!

6 // random wade and i ... the night after we got engaged.

7 // a relative of mine ... my only living grandparent - gwen hammond.

8 // a person i can tell everything to ... my sisters (and my little brother). we do need some updated pictures.

9 // my spare time ... a messy table full of projects!

10 // a place i love ... the martinsville fair.

11 // old times ... family camping trips! (and permed bangs - what!?!)
12 // a great night ... september 25th, 2010.
13 // always there ... my mom & dad. i am so blessed to have them.
14 // last summer ... boston visits - and day trips to maine.

15 // a picture that makes me sad ... i really wish wade could have met my grandpa haven.

16 // a picture that makes me laugh ... the 1st night wade met my parents. a very awkward picture w/ my dad - or a wax statue of my dad. hee hee.

17 // being crazy ... my dad's harley goggles. i think he was serious when he bought them!

18 // my parents at my age ...

19 // my favorite vacation ... our dream honeymoon to morocco (peacock pavilions).

20 // an accomplishment ... my half marathon. people say it's addictive - not so much! but i'm proud i did it once!

snag this post (as i did) -- but be sure to send me a link so i can learn all about you too! :)

LOVE this idea! It IS fun seeing what the bloggers you are reading do and look like and all that! You and your fam are super cute- you look VERY alike to your mom in that pic of her at your age. I think if I get some time (hoping two babies can play nice so mommy can blog lol!) I'll have to do something like this:)

Thanks for sharing!

ooh ladies! please definitely share if you do your own!

@mandy - how funny. small world (wide web).

@mary - i totally agree. it was a task. i cut it down from 30 - but my friend ellen did all 30 w/ a 1 year old. super moms. ps - love those first step pictures!!! :)

Hi! I've been reading your blog since few months (actually it partly convinced me about making my own), and it has helped me a lot. Living in a foreign country for the last five years, and with the usual life ups and downs, I needed to focus my attention to the small things that matter. Your blog is a great inspiration :) I just stumbled on this idea and it is just great! I hope I can give it a try soon :) Thanks a lot for sharing!

Ah, before I forget, I sent you the other day a recipe, but it was not totally gluten free. I suffer from allergies myself, and searching for some ideas I found this site, might be useful for you too?


Take care :)

thank you tess - that is such a sweet comment. somedays (especially weeks like this when i'm running around like mad + have a sick husband) i feel like taking the entire site down. but it is such a fun way to express myself and see the ebb and flow of life. please let me know if you do this post!!! :)
