Around Here: July

The start of the school year is near and even though I'm not the one going back to school, it still brings about that "new start" feeling that I love so much.  So in the spirit of new starts, I'm hoping to jump start this blog with new content.  

June and July have flown by as we settled into our new house.  We've become addicted to transforming homes and this one is no different.  We've already painted 50% of the interior walls, added a plethora of plants to the yard, and we've only just begun.  Making a house a home is one of our favorite hobbies.  And Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray is my absolute favorite wall color! 

we love puj cups

Speaking of setting up home, I've been eyeing these Puj cups for quite some time but only recently realized they were available with Amazon Prime shipping which meant the price didn't almost double with shipping!  I even tried DIY-ing cups last year with magnets but it failed.  Finally ordered them and so far these have been a big hit.  It's a small win, but no longer cleaning up 10 cups at the end of the day has been very worth it. 

Have you checked out Prisma yet? This new app transforms your photos into art.  After seeing the fun photos my brother in law was creating I decided to check it out and I've been obsessed ever since.  Working on a wall art idea for the playroom using these. If it turns out, I'll definitely post about it soon! 

boutique personal photo editor for wedding and portrait photographers

Really enjoying my new venture in editing for photographers.  While being the one behind the camera will forever bring me joy, it's been an incredible pleasure to work with a few photographers and help them in their business. 

Also working on a new memory keeping project and I'd love to know, what do you struggle with most when it comes to documenting your children's lives or your own?  Taking the pictures?  Finding the words to go with the pictures? Creating something tangible with these photos/stories so that they may be viewed for years to come?  Leave a comment below!
