ten on ten :: september

listen. this is my 3rd month doing ten on ten.
i really, really love it. i look forward to it.
but today i had this sudden fear.
what if everyone hates my pictures?
i do the same thing every day.
i wake up. parent my children. feed them lunch. put them down for a nap.
work. feed snacks. go get the mail. make dinner.
then i realized, hey. this is me.
this is my life right now.
and isn't this what this whole thing is about?
finding beauty in the mundane?
so here i go again.
finding joy in the small things.

get me coffee now.

putting my orders together.

trains. always.


lunch. and watching sister play.


sending some notes off while hanging out with my girl.

someone woke up.

my girl is back on tv!

scooter brought me flowers after a long, long couple of weeks.

i'm linking up to rebekah. you should too.

  1. i love your daily. LOVE mr. someone who woke up, and cammie's eyes, and your notes. well, everything :)
    i wanted to do it this month, but today was not the day for me.
    so glad to see your pics, cheered my heart! xo

  2. 10 on 10 is my favorite.
    i like seeing the glimpses. even if its the same "type" of day. there is so MUCH different stuff through out it. :)

    also. miles and cammie have grown up so much in two weeks.
    like for reals.
    please give them each a cup of coffee tomorrow - i think it will help stunt some growth. :) thank you.
