{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

(Ok, so I thought it was Friday and posted this on Thursday... mommy-brain struck again!)

Today I am....

:loving: this sweet tutorial on how to make an easy summer dress for my girls, plus a matching headband!

:thinking: about creating a floor bed for Miss Moira this weekend... girlfriend HATES her crib and got stuck one too many times for this Mama to care for! 

:craving: some warm sunshine, like what we felt last week in Atlanta.

:making: a recycled t-shirt rug with Gabby, using a hula hoop for the loom!

:wanting: this photo,  this journal, this purse, and  these hair pins from Etsy

:singing: this song from Glee, it just makes me smile

:needing: to feel some more sunshine on my face... I was spoiled in Atlanta by all the sun, warmth, and blooms!

:drawing: in this book that we bought for the family. It really makes you think... I mean what do you draw for "girlish laughter"?

:sewing: more of these pretty yet useful necklaces for the craft show in June. They are really teething necklaces that hide unfinished wooden beads, perfect for sore little gums!

To the Top of the World

Ok, well not really, but for us it was close enough! On Tuesday we went to a wonderful place called Stone Mountain. It is the largest chunk of granite on Earth and even as huge as it is to see, only 1% is visible! We took a Swiss cable car up to the top and then hiked down and around back to the car. I am not going to lie.... it was very hot and sweaty since I was wearing Moira, and Klint and I even got a hint of a sunburn... but it was so nice to be hot! Gabby and AJ loved the hike and I believe that the grownups did more complaining than the kids, lol. Here are some photos:

It was a wonderful day, full of sunshine, friends, and adventure!
Definitely a place I will be going back to!!

Under the Sea

Monday we headed out to the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the world!! I knew that I was in for a supurb time, but had no idea that I was going to be in awe the entire visit! Words can't describe this place.... hopefully our photos do it some justice. =) These are just a handful of the photos we took, I can't wait to print some of these out!

Where to Begin?

Well, now that I have had some time to breathe I can finally begin to tell you all about our wonderful vacation in Atlanta GA. We went to visit some much loved friends who are truly more like family and left with very reluctant hearts. (Seriously, sunburn in March? Unheard of here in Ohio!) I don't think I could have asked more of my children, who slept going down and back like champs, never asked "Are we there yet?", and behaved in a manner that made this mama proud. We were there from Sunday morning until late Wednesday night and fit in just enough that everyone was content and peaceful.

We ate at wonderful restaurants, toured the Atlanta Federal Reserve, ran amuck at local playgrounds, climbed a mountain, awed over the Georgia Aquarium, and spent precious moments with our friends. We saw cool artwork, cool shops, and tried new things like peanut butter & pickle sandwiches. (yum!) In the next few days I will share photos with you, I hope you enjoy them!

Here are some awesome photos of Atlanta and my friend's neighborhood as well as some park photos...

Our first look at Atlanta at about 7:30am Sunday morning

There was a lot of very cool graffiti there!

Who knew that it was so blue and springy in March?!

The Coka-Cola Museum

By far the best writing on a bench yet!

So that is it so far.... tomorrow I will share the photos from our visit at the aquarium... they are AMAZING!

Lovely... Simply Lovely

The title says it all.... 
we just got back from our first family vacation in Atlanta GA this morning. 
I can't begin to tell you all about it yet. 
I am just going to bask in the photos, try to recover my sanity from the 11 hour drive, 
and leave you with this photo of us on top of a wonderful place called Stone Mountain.
