{week in the life} monday | 2014

I decided to follow along with Ali Edwards in documenting my Week In The Life and took a few photos of my Monday. In general it wasn't my favorite day ever, but I got through it and am hoping for a better tomorrow. I didn't get as many photos as I'd like, so I'll probably tell a couple stories that are only journaling and I'm okay with that too. I do really love the photos I did end up taking though. XO

Some thoughts from my day:
  1. Trying something new for breakfast.  Gluten free granola with unsweetened vanilla almond and coconut milk.  It was good.  Right now I like to watch House Hunters International on the DVR while I eat my first meal of the day.
  2. My poor attempt at having myself be in a photo.
  3. Ponyo standing at his watchdog perch with a piece of grass sticking out of his mouth.
  4. Trader Joes (pumpkins) for groceries to make a taco salad for dinner.  Also my first attempt at homemade ranch dressing.  Yum.
  5. Baby doctor appointment.  It took longer than normal but went well.
  6. There are still a few bright yellow leaves left on the trees outside the doctor's office.  They are still lovely.
  7. Another pumpkin photo from Trader Joes.  I didn't put up any fall decorations this year, so seeing this bit of autumn is so cheerful.
  8. Gatsby finding the sunshine that still shows up during these bright autumn afternoons.


  1. Love your photo and word round ups! Stunning photos and fun lil stories to match. Three questions...what is that rockin font you use for each day of the week? Is that a template you created for your photo round ups? And did you put a yellow pink and blue overlay over the pup in the curtain photos and such? Love love love.

    1. You're too sweet! Thank you @lindsalita : ) 1.) I don't have the name of the font memorized so I'll get back to you on that. Did download it for free on dafont.com though. 2.) Yes, it's a custom template I created in Photoshop. Would you like me to add it as a free download? 3.) Yes, I used a default gradient overlay in Photoshop for the curtain photos and adjusted the opacity. Super fun and easy!

  2. Free download? Heck open a shop and I'll be your customer! Thanks for sharing such inspiring work!!!

  3. Oh my gosh are you a talented photographer!! I love your photos.
