Day 21

Tonight I was honored with these: Silly Bands. Apparently they are all the rage with kids today (how completely elderly do I sound?!)

Now I just need to find someone to trade them with!

These are the two most special boys in our lives. Look at them. They are every bit as busy and fun as they look. I promise.

I'm exhausted.

Day 20

It's Memorial Day Weekend, and J had to work. Most of our friends were out of town, so I decided to visit a local farm to see what kind of finds I could find.

Lull Farm is a great family farm in Hollis NH, and they sell everything from flowers, to herbs, to fresh fruits and vegetables! AND CHICKENS!! I saw a sign at the register that you could purchase fresh chickens for 2.49 lb, but I'll be honest, I'm not sure if that's fresh chicken meat, or you know, cluck-cluck-chickens-in-a-pen chickens.

I ended up purchasing fresh cucumbers, blueberries, bananas, and a VitaCoco. I've never had one, but have heard great things about them, and now that marathon training is officially here... I thought I'd try it out. Review forth coming :)

So there you have it... another post about the charms of small town NH :) Maybe tomorrow I'll shoot something in our more urban areas? (Fellow NH residents are rolling their eyes right now... It'll definitely be a photographic challenge!!)

Day 19

My niece (and Goddaughter!!) had her third birthday this past week, and the fam gathered to celebrate. Fun facts about Lilly:

She HATES to be dirty, and loves to clean. Which I completely blame on my neat-freak sister :)

She is only three and can already multi-task. Example: blowing bubbles does NOT mean you need to put down your doritos. No ma'am.

She told everyone all day that she was four. Which is HILARIOUS. She's three. See the shirt her mom made her? So cute.

She is one of the most polite small people I know. My sister should be proud.

She loves her Uncle J more than most of us. As proof, I've added pictures from her second birthday where she NEEDED to sit on his lap while opening her presents:

and one from a short while before that, where we were trying to leave my sister's house and she did NOT want to let go of him:

So sweet really...

From little baby...

To little girl! We love you Lilly!!

Day 18

J and I spent some time this evening strolling around the local car club's weekly meeting. All these classic cars will congregate in the local Target parking lot, all gleamed up and looking their best. There are all different styles, from Model Ts to muscle cars to vintage motorcycles. It was actually a lot of fun taking pictures there; people are more than willing to let you get good angles, the lighting was great, and the reflective surfaces were fun to work with.

And of course the crowd is fun too!!

Day 17

Summer has definitely arrived in New Hampshire. About a month early, and excruciatingly humid. One of the few benefits to this is the beautiful light the sky has been showing lately. I was able to get a great shot of the early evening sky, and it's definitely one of my favorites so far.

Day 15

How was your Monday?

Ours was good. Thanks for asking :)

Day 14

Once upon a time I was a nanny for the most wonderful little girl in the world. She was smart, and sweet, and loved to have stories read to her. We loved to go on adventures, and had tons of fun.

Now life has taken me to many other wonderful places, but this little girl will always have my heart. Thing is, she's not so little anymore. She's a beautiful girl, still smart and funny. Now with a huge personality, and she's so much fun.

It was so great to visit with all of you!!

Day 13

I love Weddings.
