Let's catch up!

Long time no post, eh? 
It has been a nut house around here and due to this fast approaching PCS move, I'm not anticipating it to slow down until at least July. That being said, with this post I'll be caught up and back on track :-) 
I'm proud of myself staying with my weekly every week! Though, I have to tell you, I stopped doing the self portraits. Ugh. They were kicking my butt... and let's be honest, ain't no time for that during a PCS year. I'm happier not having the stress/anxiety of doing them and we all know "sane mama = Happy family". So I'm not too bummed about it. 

Anyway, lots of news, lots of places and lots of things to be caught up on. I'll get onto most of it in this weeks posts, but for now... P52 :-)

After a slow, cold, rainy start Spring finally arrived in Bella Italia and these sweet cherry blossom twigs are proof!

I don't think there needs to be an explanation for this one... except for maybe why he's giggling? That was his response when I asked him "Hey Aidan, what happened to your hand again?" and he replied... 
"Break dancing" 
... this kid.

Burano, Venezia, Italia

To keep myself challenged, some of this year's project has more technical prompts. Also to keep me from just taking pictures of the Tabblets. HAH! 
My favorite part of Venice is one of its islands, Burano.
Burano is a tiny little island where every house is a different, brightly painted, color then the one sitting next to it. It's GORGEOUS to say the least. My last trip there was this particular project week and it will have it's own post, I promise! Be on the look out! 

 

{14} of 52: Feet

When your dream is to travel, your feet will surely take you there. 
My niece's newest tattoo was obtained during her visit to see us. Sogno in Italian means "I dream" One of her dreams is to travel and she is already getting her boots a'traveling! Go Girl! 

 

{15} of 52: Simplicity

Need a giggle or two? A face breaking smile? Want to brighten your day? 
Simple. 
All you need is a swing. 

 

{16} of 52: Together

Together they fly in the breeze that takes them to new adventures, new lands, and new friends.
April is month of the military child.  

The official flower of the military child is the dandelion. Why? The plant puts down roots almost anywhere, and it’s almost impossible to destroy. It’s an unpretentious plant, yet good looking. It’s a survivor in a broad range of climates. Military children bloom everywhere the winds carry them. They are hardy and upright. Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely. They’re ready to fly in the breezes that take them to new adventures, new lands, and new friends.

{17} of 52: Moving

Many times in this {Military} life of ours, our whole livelihood is broken down and solely dependent on these stickers. Any military wife knows these simple stickers carry deep emotions. They bring with them new beginnings, closing chapters, hope, anxiety and prayers...
lots of prayers.  
Our house is officially empty. This chapter is on it's last pages. Emotions can not be explained or organized. New beginnings await. Less than 35 days and the  #TabbletsDiscoverAmerica begins. 
(oh yes, more on this soon!) 

 

{18} of 52: Joy

Silly, smart and sweet. She is and emits pure, honest, joy. 
In fact, she's my Pride and {Teagan} Joy! 

 

That's a wrap for today, guys! 
As always, thank you for your support! 
Stay tuned! 

Let's catch up, to be con't.
