Fresh Air :: Inspiration Wednesday

Sometimes when life gets crazy I think it is just best to get outside and take a big breath of fresh air.  Working from home can sometimes be a bit overwhelming and I have found a bit of relaxation in grabbing my camera and going outside for a while.  I love being able to work in the yard but when it is up in the 90’s I only have so much patience for the heat so for now I’ll just enjoy some photography fun.

 Or when all else fails you can always go out for a long drive!

So go out and get a breath of fresh air today!

Hunting Eggs and Enjoying Easter

Happy Easter!  Did you all have a great Easter?!  It was the most beautiful day here.  It was warm but not too warm with a little bit of a breeze and a LOT of sunshine. Not to mention most of the Pine pollen is finally gone!!!  We all went to church in the morning and then came home for a little Easter egg hunt followed by an amazing meal that left us all overstuffed!  How did you all celebrate?  Do you have any special traditions?  There is something very special about watching my kids run around the yard where I used play.  I remember being a kid racing my big sister to find those hidden eggs.  Then there were many years of watching the joy in Jake’s face as he tossed another egg in his bucket.  I didn’t think it could get any better than that.  Then a couple years later the addition of my nephew to the family brought us even more entertainment.  Now with Emma Grace we have someone fun to dress for Easter Sunday service.    I can’t wait for next year to see who she body checks to get her jelly beans because there is never a dull moment when our kids are together!

Emma Grace was very excited that Easter Bunny left her apple and banana puffs in her eggs!

The Easter Bunny hid quite a few eggs for Jake a in sneaky places but he was too excited and ran by them all.  No need to worry because Kyson found them all instead!

Having a little girl to dress this year was definitely fun!  After six years of kakis and and polo shirts it was fun to be able to find some big poofy dresses and make a new headband.  Take a quick peak because I’m going to start offering hair bows and flowers in the jRoxDesigns Etsy shop.

After the all of the eggs had been found we also took a ton of family pictures with everyone.  I will be sure to share as soon as I am done editing them.  I’m just so happy I will finally have a picture of the FOUR of us!!

Happy Easter!
