Recently I was able to take some pictures for this sweet family at their home. Little Eliza was more than happy to walk around the house with me to check things out and the teenagers were troopers as well. They kept on smiling while we tried to get Eliza's attention during the group shots and it paid off!

Theme: Planning

week of March 21st
I am a woman who loves to plan! I like the feeling of control having a plan gives me because (I think) I am a little of a control freak. So, I make lists of things to do for the day, I decide on outfits for trips weeks in advance, I make sure we have enough swimsuits for the summer by February, and I plan out our meals for the week on Sundays. Now, the meal planning originated more out of a way to save money than anything else, but I love to eat, so I like to think about what yummy things sound good for the week. In an effort to make the monotony of meal-planning, and the cooking and cleaning that comes along with meals, a little more exciting I started a recipe blog (On My Menu) a couple years ago. I don't come up with my own recipes or do anything fancy usually, but I'm good at picking at out other people's recipes and following them :-).  Taking photographs of the food has become something I really love to do to congratulate myself for finishing at the end!

Theme: Underneath, Take 2

My original thought was to do something with my kids under sheets in sunlight. They were playing behind the curtains in our hotel room over our spring break vacation though and I got a similar effect of what I had envisioned in my mind. I still want to try the sheets sometime though.

Theme: Underneath

Week of March 7th
I actually have something I really wanted to play around with for this theme, but the week slipped by too quickly. Today at the park I took this one of Ella, just in case I don't have time to try my original idea tomorrow :-).

Theme: Vegetables

Week of Feb 28th
Mmmm, tomatillos. I have only become brave enough to use these babies in the last year and I'm glad I have. Some of my favorite enchilada recipes feature their tangy flavor. They are a little intimidating at first though :-)!
