Just Life

Looking Back | February.

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!

    A fun recap. Love that pic of you Mom (reminds me of mine so much).

    Sleeting now…counting on a day at home tomorrow.

    Your month was a joyous one and I like the way to kept your workout as a separate collage that chronicles your daily practice. How wonderful to have your mom near by, happy in her own new and beautiful place.

    Your mom looks so happy and at home! Look forward to seeing more of her over the months…and the amaryllis…swoon! For a short month, you packed in a lot! Time to rest up?
    Cheers~

    February looks like it was full of some great moments! And to have your mom close must be wonderful — beautiful photo of her and as I'm watching the snow come down her forsythia wreath reminds me spring isn't too far off. : )
