It was one of those afternoons when nothing happened as planned; naps were skipped, fussing was abundant and rain poured and poured and poured some more. By the time Jeff walked in from work, I was about to lose it. So I handed him the baby and the book I was about to read Cricket for the thirtieth time, grabbed my camera and the spent the next five glorious minutes shooting the summer blooms around our yard. The sun made its first appearance of the day just in time for my little photo break. Those few moments of creative time outside were just enough to help me reset so I could handle the evening routine of bath time and stories and feedings. Thank goodness for summer.
