MicroBlog Mondays: Favorite Pictures

I love having my phone as my camera, because not only can I capture random, mundane moments I would otherwise miss, but also because I can always have them with me. I can scroll through favorite moments and always have my family close, even when we are apart. I also find gems that my kids take when I'm not looking. Everything from selfie after funny-faced selfie, to the floor of the car, to funny things happening in the background of life. Usually I blog from my phone, and I can't figure out how to quickly pull pictures over to blogger, so I never add any. Today I am lucky enough to be on the laptop, so I thought I would share some of my favorites over the last 6 months or so. I have a million more than I was able to post, but here is a sampling. And since blogger is being dumb and won't allow me to caption individual pictures, these are trees peaking in my backyard, one year old pleased with his destruction of his smash cake, practicing blowing candles out with older brother, getting to blow his own candles out, a rare occasion of a clean room, brother love, my first batch of cookies done during the harried and crazy holiday season (a victory for sure), doggie snuggles, baby sweetness, cool shot from NYC trip, and my favorite room in the winter. In no particular order. My girls are absent from this collection only because I didn't really have any from this time frame that were my favorite or just featured them.


  1. I like the decimated cake and the tree.

  2. I feel the same way about the camera in the phone -- I take so many more pictures. Such great shots.

    So how bad was the cleanup from the smash cake? :-)

  3. Wow baby R didn't do that well with the smash cake! Beautiful kiddos you have there! That is a H.U.G.E. tree in your living room. :)

  4. So sweet! It is such a great new luxury to have the ability to take pictures at any time and carry them all around with you. I hate when I have to purge pictures off my phone and onto the computer because it's like I've lost my personal gallery (but I need to keep them safe, too). Now I have google photo so it's a win win! Great photos, love the big eyes and the cakes in various forms. :)
