within hands reach

This weekend I made a conscious effort to have my camera within my wish-the-weekend-wasn’t-over hand’s reach. Something that takes a teensy bit more thought but I’ve never regretted because the photos are hugely rewarding. Here’s just a few of my favorites.
A decorated dollhouse and a sweet baby.

Ribbon in Lola’s hair. It’s elastic and perfect for headbands.
Watercolors
Carousel rides

Cutest miniature snowman & Collin in his studdly Sunday attire. Do people still say studdly? ;)

    I don't know if "studly" is still in fashion or not…but it definitely should still be used! It's such a fun, silly word. =)

    And the picture of Lola in front of the window? Lovely!!

    Oh my, all lovely pictures. I love the little dollhouse pic that captures so much personality. Makes me want to run out and buy an Instax more than ever…cause doesn't every little girl need real photos on their dollhouse wall?

    Really? Studdly? Like he NEEDS to hear that. LOL
    Love the idea of just taking "Random" pictures of Life! Puts things in perspective, doesn't it? Just remembering the daily activities of the "day to day." ;-)

    where did you get those cutie boots your daughter has on? and what camera did you use to take the pics?

    thanks for reminding "us" to capture the everyday!
