Yep, one more catching up post before I’m ready to move on to March!
Today, I’m looking back at February through the lens of my daily photos:
I’ve already shared most of these photos here or on Instagram, but I’m still surprised by the story all 28 photos tell together – what a month! The trip to Mexico over the last week was planned, but I had no idea Marc would be such a willing participant in the photos! Then there were the little boys – breakfast on the 11th, followed by two whole days with little Sam on the 14th and 15th. First signs of spring … and an amaryllis that looks just as lovely when the blooms fade (the 5th) as when they’re just beginning (the 10th).
That “just beginning” bud managed to hold off blooming until we were home and I’ve enjoyed watching it unfold over the past few days. Its first blossom was a most welcome sight this morning.
One photo I haven’t shared here is from the 8th – my mom at her new front door:
We had a mini photoshoot that afternoon so she had a “new home” photo to share with her friends. I’m delighted with the photo (smiles, sunshine, forsythia wreath!), but mostly having my mom so close … and getting settled. I fully expect her to be a regular feature in these monthly collages going forward – what a blessing!
There was also one part of my February that I purposely omitted from the collage. The 10 day #tblmindbodypilates challenge was something I wanted to accomplish, but I knew it would mostly happen while we were away. and of course I knew I’d want to have vacation photos fill those daily spots. I did take a daily photo to mark each workout (doubling up on days 5 & 6 when we were traveling) and made a mini-collage.
Pilates with a beach view is definitely more fun than pilates in my living room – but The Balanced Life works great in both places! (although I’m not sure Holly would agree 😉)
And that’s a wrap!
Cheers, February – you were wonderful … but I’m ready to welcome March!
