Summer Nights Under The Lights

makes me happy.

I think I have yet to mention that Kev and I played on a Monday night softball team this summer.

Not going to lie, it was pretty awesome.

While we knew many of the players already from our Sunday softball league, many we did not, which added an element of vulnerability to the experience. And vulnerability, for me, is one of those exciting and exhilarating emotions that I believe running toward, instead of away from, creates courage and personal growth.

So there was that. The fact that it was a night, under the lights, a guaranteed 'date-night' every week,  amazing people, lots of laughs.

And then there was the actual playing ball!  Which I LOVE.  And want to do forever.

Without a doubt, one of the reasons I eat the way I do and exercise all the time, is not so I can be thin or fashionable, it's so I can play ball for many, many, years to come.

The Game of Love

makes me happy.

We were lucky enough to be invited out last week to celebrate Kelly & Sandy's 10th anniversary of marriage.

These few photos I shot don't do the evening justice - 

I'm still kind of in between using my favourite p&s with the scratch on the lens and my iphone camera (which these are) -

but it was beautiful a beautiful evening, celebrating two wonderful people playing my favourite game.

Unpublished Blogs and Sweet Potato Squished On The Floor

makes me happy.

I've had the last of these summer round up photos waiting to be published for daaaaays now.

Even with the Byrd in school now I still find time gets away from me quickly between reading books, stacking blocks, and snuggling baby.  After school and on the weekends Stevie and I are so stoked to have Byrdie kicking around that it's all puppet shows, puzzles and park time.

I realize how precious and fleeting these moments with the girls are and I will not die wishing I had spent more time playing with them.

Messy house, small bank account, glue in my hair, and all.

Summer 2013

makes me happy.

With the Byrd now in school I've found myself with a little bit more time on my hands.

Some of which I've been using to clean up my iPhoto library.

Looks like I'm in need of posting some end-of-summer photos!

To School Photobomb

makes me happy.

We sent the Byrd off to her first day of school today.

That pretty much rocks.

Having very strong feelings she's going to nail it.

As long as nailing it means, she will be learning how to bring more positive energy to the world every single day, then we're good.

Which is the point of school, right?
