Snapshot Life

april-2009-0411So often the quick snapshots I take with our little Cannon point and shoot are the photos I love the most.

For every posed picture where lipstick has been applied, Jack has a clean shirt on and Aaron is actually smiling, nine times out of ten, they don’t turn out.

But, the quick shot, where we are just being our geeky selves always seem to turn out the best. I don’t know why that is, but I love this photo. The hair isn’t perfect, we don’t have the right pose, heck you can see my arm because I’m holding the camera. 

But, our happiness radiates. And for that, I love it. 

It’s so easy for me to pick apart photos and fuss over every imperfection. But, every once in a while an imperfect photo comes along that is perfect in every way.april-2009-043

The sun is shining and Jack is singing La la la to his toys. The washing machine is humming and the house is clean in preparation for more guests. Saturday is already shaping up to be a perfect day.

My plan is to plant my window boxes this weekend and hopefully get started on some of my pots. I hoping to get my vegetable garden going as well. My mom, who is a master gardener, arrives today.

I think a trip to Starbucks as a family is in order.  I hope your weekend is full of sunshine, fresh coffee and those you love.

Any fun plans?

    I love that pic of all of you. Does your husband look a little like Tom Cruise IRL? Just wonderin’.
    Love that your little guy is looking, and smiling, at the camera, too…that never happens in my house 🙂
