my week in photos — week 26

My week in photos is a weekly post where I share some of the photos that I took during the week that (mostly) didn’t make it to my Instagram feed. I’m always looking for ways to improve my photography skills and welcome any comments.

What a wild and fun week it was.

The week started off with a visit from Justin’s mom and her friend. We took them to the Botanic Gardens to explore the flowers and succulents. I have so many ideas for our new garden. I’m going to need to scale it down a bit. We’ll be moving after this year’s growing season so I’ll have all winter to plan and dream some more.

We also took them to the farmers market, all of our favorite restaurants, and showed them the new house. The two ladies are walking fools! On one hand, it was nice not worrying about getting my steps. On the other hand, I need a foot massage STAT!

I very much enjoyed sharing our town with them. Due to my dairy allergy, we tend to eat at vegan or vegan-friendly places that are a little off the beaten path. I think they both tried foods that they wouldn’t normally eat.

I started a new project for a special little girl. She’s turning three and needs (as much as a small person could need anything) a toddler purse. She adores the color yellow and I happen to have some bulky yarn in my stash that was perfect. I read a few patterns, but didn’t find exactly what I’m looking for so I’m winging it. So far, I’m really excited about how it’s turning out.

The week wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t talk about my garden just a little bit.

I went out to water my strawberry plants and found this lovely flower waiting for me! Over the last few days, I’ve noticed a lot of new growth on all five plants and it looks like we might be getting somewhere. So far, I’ve harvested seven strawberries and we’re at $2.50 per berry. On the upside, that number will only go down as more berries come in. I’ll consider this summer a success if we can get under $2 per berry. I recently learned that strawberry plants can be wintered in their planter and last up to three seasons. I have lots of hope!

Since I’m out of town this week, Justin has been left with lots of instructions on how to keep our plants alive. I have faith in him.

How did your week go?

  1. I’m seriously so impressed with your photos. Mine do not ever look that good. I have put exactly zero time into trying to figure it out, so it’s my own fault.

    I’m trying very hard to have this summer be low key and unscheduled, which really means “I’m scheduling a lot of unscheduled things.” As far as the kids know, we are chillaxing every day. So this week was a lot of that – lots of freelance work in the mornings before they get up and as they play, heading to the pool or outside, birthday parties and visiting with friends. I’m as exhausted as always but from the outside it looks like a slow summer for us!


    1. Thanks! I’ve been working on taking more and better pictures for a while now. A lot of my photos are awful, but that’s why digital is so great. I can take as many as I want without worrying about getting the film developed and hating them.

      I absolutely love the idea of purposefully not scheduling your days (except for your mornings). Going with the flow can be hard, but it sounds like you’ve found the sweet spot! ________________________________
