A Year of Stories/Week 3

I'm sure I'm not the only one in our circle who is telling the story of a snowstorm this week. We ended up with 16 inches here in Midlothian, Virginia. It started Friday around 11a.m. and didn't stop until Saturday at 11p.m.  A legit blizzard that only allowed the kids to enjoy it briefly each day because of the single digit wind chills and heavy, heavy snowfall. We were happy though to all be home safe and sound and were loaded up with firewood, junk food, netflix and booze. Here's how this one went...

Now keep following our blog circle to the crazy talented Renee Bonuccelli and see her story for this week!

A Year of Stories/Week 2

On to week 2 and January is almost already a memory. 
This week I wanted to document the feel of our January. 

the warm sun coming through the window 
the winter chill outside
trying to keep the germs at bay
no daylight left at dinner time
quick pickup games during halftime of NFL playoffs
the first snowfall of the year
warming up by the fire

Now don't forget to continue in our blog circle to see what my talented friend, Laura Mood has for us this week!

A Year of Stories/Week 1

So thrilled to be starting 2016 with a fun weekly project with some of my favorite photographers and friends. A Year of Stories is a weekly blog circle to document the stories of our everyday. I hope you will follow our group throughout the year!

So for the first installment, I wanted to tell you about a quaint little train town that we frequent, Ashland, Virginia. Ashland is a middle point for us to meet my husband's family. We meet for brunch and before heading home, we end up walking the tracks and soaking in the small town feel. This is where my husband was living when we first started dating so we have some sweet memories here and want to pass them along to the kids. So despite the chilly dreary day, we stopped in as we always do.

Now keep following our circle through to the next story from Carey Pace! Go get inspired by her images!!
