This Moment

:: This Moment ::

A Friday ritual. A single photo- no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor, and remember.

Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::

This week I have been on a knitting binge. I am continuing work on Miss E's pink sweater, I started work on this shawl, Dinner in the Eiffel Tower, and I picked up some yarn to knit my long time friend and sorority sister a sweet little sweater for her little one that is due in October. This is my first shawl and I am really excited about it. I am knitting with Madeleine Tosh DK and it is amazing. I don't have any pictures up because there isn't much to show this week. It is a really lovely pattern. 

Sadly, I gave up on Inferno by Dan Brown. I really wanted to love his book but it just seemed to drag and I was really disappointed in the topic. On the flip side, I got to start a new book, The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout. I instantly want to snatch a few moments of reading whenever I can. 

Finally, the Josephine Scarf! My first pattern and creation in the world of knitting! I am excited to share this pattern with you. Just click on the tab above labeled " Knitting Patterns ". Any feedback is welcome because I am a newbie and need help writing and deciphering patterns. 

I hope you enjoy!

We enjoyed a peaceful evening on our back porch and with only a few weeks left before we move I want to savor the moments and memories here.

Monday: A Weekend in Review

:: Monday: A Weekend in Review ::

The girls wanted waffles this morning and it was a great idea. Now that summer is here I like to ease into Monday mornings since we have a fluid schedule. I can sit and enjoy my coffee while they eat some yummy waffles. We have A LOT happening in the next 2 weeks before our move and I am pretending like it isn't going to be a bit chaotic. I think today I will start putting our moving binder together. I like to keep track of my to do list and all the paperwork during a move. Making lists helps me keep my patience and sanity. I think I will procrastinate another day before really buckling down. 

Our weekend was lovely. We enjoyed grilled pizza on Friday night under the stars. I started knitting a little baby gift for a friend who is having a baby in October. Saturday morning we had a yard sale and enjoyed some time outside. I made a set of curtains for my new kitchen in our new house. Sunday was went to Mass and then did some grocery shopping. The rest of the day was spent relaxing and playing with the girls. Overall, it was just a quiet little weekend in Georgia. Only 2 more left and I think next weekend we will spend visiting some of our favorites places one last time. 

It is a bit sad to leave a place but it is also exciting to be moving to a new place ( or in this case back home). There will be so much to do and see after being away for 7 years. I am looking forward to crisp cool falls, cold winters, and green springs of Maryland. I will miss the South and its timeless nature. But I am sure we'll be back again so it isn't good-bye just see you later.
