This Week in Pictures

 This week has been one of those weeks full of not much. You know the ones I'm talking about. Nothing exciting. Just life. The ebb and flow of school and dinner and laundry, with those little stolen moments of fun  squeezed in. Like dirty faces. And taking pictures anyways because you know what. That's life.
 This week was tiny little hands that I love, asleep in the afternoon sun.

 and those same tiny hands getting their first taste of Florida oranges.
 And while trying to take my promised picture each day I discovered some beauty and fun in the mess, and maybe, just maybe I enjoyed it.

In a few short weeks we'll be moving, and while I'm so excited to see what our next phase in life will be, it's hard not to feel a little tug on my heartstrings. Especially about leaving my Floridian oasis behind.

It's amazing what this week of being behind the camera lens has done for me. You look through your lens and it's like magic. With just the click of the button the ordinary becomes something else. A snapshot of a moment that you will never, ever get back, and that my friends is something to cherish. Especially if those snapshots are of two beautiful sisters, and oh so yummy Saturday morning breakfast.

 And so in typical Julia style I'll end my post pretty abruptly, cause you know, when your done, your done. My week of not much turned out to be lots when I just looked at it a little closer, and maybe that's what life is all about. Slowing down. Looking closer. Enjoying the sunset......

 and wishing on the first star you see that you never loose that ability.

Night all!!!
