My Life: Week of August 17

The summer flew by! Lucy's about to start Kindergarten. She's a beautiful, intelligent, vibrant, &  sweet 5 year old, who loves spending time with her mama! I know it's not going to last, so I take it in when I can.

Lucy does not share my affinity for picture taking. I paid $1.00 for this picture.

She's my Kate's biggest fan. Frankly, I think Kate is not crawling yet because Lucy dotes on her so much. Why move, if Lucy will get you what you need! Kate's 10 months now. She's not very mobile, as I mentioned. I think that mixed with some incoming teeth has this lady feeling aggravated. She's frequently cranky. I also think, I've been a little busy and relying on Lucy's help a lot. So I've been trying to spend more quality time with my littlest lady.

And of course, my Anthony! He's a very spirited young man. He ranges from super happy to crying in seconds. He's also a BIG lover of candy. He gets in a frenzy about it! Every morning, before breakfast, he will ask for something he can't have, like candy, then throw a fit when I don't let him have it. I call it a candy tantrum! These are quite frequent in our house.

I've got a much bigger handful of big events coming up than I usually do. I'm excited to see if I can keep up. Kankakee Farmer's Market: Saturday, August 22; A vintage and handmade market in Effingham Illinois: HobNob Market, Friday & Saturday, September 11 & 12;  My Holiday Open House: Thursday, November 19; One more HobNob Market in Danville, IL Friday & Saturday, December 4 & 5.  I will also be doing a Merry Little Market in New Lenox, Date to be determined!

I'm still shooting daily! My life keeps me plenty inspired.

Kate has this head of hair, that I'm mesmerized by, I love to capture the little details that I find so beautiful!
