Photo a Day May: Weeks 4 & 5

Hi guys! I hope all of you are doing well. Thank you so much to all of you who have reached out to me over the last couple of weeks. It’s been a challenging time and extremely difficult for me to talk about. If you haven’t noticed, I have a very hard time getting personal. It’s a struggle for me to open up. Nevertheless, it has helped immensely to know that so many people are concerned. There are so many good people in the world, and I feel so blessed to have so many of them in my life.

I’ve still been doing the Photo a Day May challenge. I didn’t get around to posting last week, so this week will be both weeks 4 & 5. If you missed weeks 1, 2, or 3  you can see them HERE, HERE, and HERE.
Here’s a reminder of each day’s topic.

Days 20-31
Day 20 something I can't live without
I never want to live without this crazy bunch! Love my family more than anything else!!!
Day 21 where I stand
Oh the countless hours I spend in this spot: feeding kids, making meals, cleaning, etc. Without a doubt, I spend more time standing in this spot than any other!
Day 22 pink
Somebody got to go to a birthday party and make glittery pink butterflies and paint their face all sorts of fun colors!!!
Day 23 technology
One of the best inventions ever is the Garmin!!! It’s made training so much better. It keeps track of time, pace, distance, calories, etc. I love it and honestly can’t imagine running without it!
Day 24 something new
My friend Cheri was wearing this cute dress at SNAP! She told me she got it from Thistles Home & Gift. I loved it so much that I ordered one for myself!!! It’s so comfy and super cute!!
Day 25 unusual
I was in the car by myself.
It was kind of hard for me to come up with something unusual. I guess with four kids, nothing seems that strange to me anymore. LOL!
Day 26 12 oclock
We were at a neighbors house for a BBQ @ 12 o’clock, and my 5-year old daughter stepped into a cactus. Ouch!
Day 27 something sweet
We almost always make a Sunday treat. This week we tried Baked Perfection’s S’mores Cookies Bars. They were absolutely scrumptious!! We’ve already made (and eaten) them twice since then!!
Day 28 weather today
Memorial Day gave us gorgeous weather! Grandma was in town, so we gathered up a lunch and went to one of our favorite local spots, Wheeler Farm. We had a picnic lunch, flew a kite, fed the ducks, pet the farm animals, and enjoyed the sunshine!!!
Day 29 a number
10 inches chopped off!!! She’s been begging to get her hair cut short for months I wanted to make sure it’s what she really wanted, so I made her wait quite a while. This day was finally the day and she loves it!! It’s so cute and fits her cute, spunky personality so well!!
Day 30 my personality
Trying to think of a photo to describe my personality really had me stumped. In the end, I felt like a calla lily is probably the best image I could use to describe my personality. I’ll let you take that as you will.
Besides, it’s always been my favorite flower!
Day 31 something beautiful
I know I’m completely biased, but I think these are the two most beautiful girls in the world! Today was their last day of school, which means summer has now begun and that is something beautiful as well.

Well that’s a wrap for the Photo a Day in May. It made me stretch sometimes, but I really enjoyed it.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of my personal side through these photos. Who knows, maybe I’ll continue on through June.
We’ll see…


  1. Sorry to hear you are having a hard time. I can feel for you. The past month and a half have been the hardest so far. (two deaths in my family in one month)So, I will keep you in my prayers that hopefully you will recieve the help you need for whatever you are facing.

  2. Nice pace! I think my PR for a half was 1:55. Thanks for the peek into your world.

  3. Tam--your girls are just so beautiful--love the new haircut!
    Sorry things have been rough--share if/when you feel comfortable--but either way you've got the support of your readers.
