the first

{pretty, funny, happy, real!!!} for me. (aka: the post wherein i overuse certain words. we’ll see if you can guess which ones.)

things i can relate to…hooray!!!

in fact…i had trouble narrowing it down…

so maybe i squeezed in two {pretty} shots.

but it’s summer.

and i tend to get a little obsessed with coreopsis in the summer.

in fact. not only is it {pretty}.

but…turns out it makes me {happy} too!

and so i may have turned yesterday’s art lesson into a sweat-shop-production-of-coreopsis-inspired-paintings-made-specially-for-mama…

luckily my daughter obliges my fanatical whims.


it’s not {funny} that it’s thursday.

and neither is the fact the baby didn’t use a hyphen {funny}.

it’s just {funny} that we were commanded told to leave this there (magnetically attached to the kitchen door)”all day”.

maybe he just needs a reminder that it is indeed thursday!!!

and last.

but certainly not least…


a very {real} cup of coffee.

two {real} mama books from the library: she walks in beauty a woman’s journey through poems and woman food and God.

a {real} “flower” picked from our mint patch.

and i really played with the ISO on my camera this morning…

now shoo! (and i mean that in the nicest way)

go visit here for more {pretty, funny, happy, real}

(i couldn’t add the button to my blog for some reason…)

{happy} viewing!

    Beautiful!!! +JMJ+

  2. I share your coreopsis love. It’s such a drenched yellow. All together lovely post!

  3. Lovely altogether. I really like that first photo. Makes me want to learn how to paint, just so I can have a watercolor palette that looks like that one. =)

    Thanks, Regan, for coming over to my bloggy and saying hi! It really has been busy at my end and I do not have time to write much.

    Know you are always in my bloggy thoughts and prayers.

  5. I’m in love with that first photo. It’s just beautiful!
    (and I also love the little-kid bossiness. That’s totally the kind of thing we would have done!)
    Thanks for linking up – I’m glad you did!

  6. so very pretty. i love the pretty flowers, too. which reminds me that at this house, nowhere in any of our gardens do they grow. so decidedly unpretty. i’ll get on it – prettifying our garden. your daughter painted a very pretty picture. i love the pretty mug, too. your pictures are pretty.

  7. All the pretty yellow! Great post!

  8. I keep coming back to peek at the lovely watercolor coreopsis – so pretty! Mine are blooming too, so very yellow and sunshine-y. I might have to ‘commission’ some too.
