08.10.2012 / Fave Friday

It’s Friday.  I just like saying that.  I really do.  I’ve decided to take Fave Friday a bit of a different route at least for the time being (we will see how it goes).  I’m going to share some shots from our week.  And in keeping with the idea of it being Friday and about favorites, I thought why not share a few of my favorite things that happened during my week.  Real life things.  And speaking of things, the thing of it is, as much as I want to do most of my posts on things, lovely things to be exact, the best thing in my life is my littles and they are what make up my days and nights and there is a lot of lovely in that to share with all of you.  But the other thing is, that the every day is not always so lovely, so please don’t get the wrong idea about me.  A lot (ok, most of my days) are really hard.  Four kids is a lot of work and since I kind of have a thing for order and organization, it is a daily battle (even if that is battle is just with myself – trying to get myself to chill out a bit).  The thing about me is, I’m certain that even in the midst of the every day and even during the hard days there is still beauty to be found, if you look for it . . . and I’m always searching around for it, trying to capture it and hold onto it.  So I’m hoping to share some of those faveorite moments.  The scenes of the everyday.  The minutes that carry the things that matter the most.  I’m hoping for a few things . . . to document more of the life we live, to get better with my camera and to provide original content that is visually inspiring.  When I take a photo, I really think about it and try not only to capture the person or the main thing but the every thing that the snap is trying to say (I have a lot of fun doing this over on Instagram).  Maybe I’ll share a story or maybe just a few simple lines about each scene that was our lives.  But I’ll also include a few of my fave links of the week like I always do because those are good and lovely things for the getting, too.

+ this week +

+ La La loves to try on my clothes.  It’s a thing.
+ Had a fun meeting in the very cool offices of Frank and Harvey.  We are cooking up a little something.

01 / Have you found the perfect lipstick color?  This tutorial is beyond super cute.  I want to play!
02 / Kirsten and Rachelle have done it again.  Wouldn’t you love to work in a space like this?

04 / I seriously would be pretty happy if the outside of my house looked like this.
05 / Some super cute summer craft projects if your feeling crafty this weekend.

Hi Eva! thanks for stopping by and for your kind compliments. I stay up way too late, its really bad. That is the only way I can seem to do it. Blogging can be just as hard with two kids. Keep up the good work!!! xo . trina
