Miscellany Monday & Grand Opening Giveaway!

{ONE} I started house hunting this weekend. We still have no clue where we are going to move, but the idea of getting out of here and being in my own home again was a relief. It took a little bit of the tension off of my shoulders and I allowed myself to get sucked into the whole “how I’m going to decorate” and “where I want to put furniture” mode of looking at houses.

{TWO} I’m starting to feel like my sanity is hanging by a thread. At least, some days I do. Last night was one of them. I spent the afternoon with my parents for Grandparent’s Day, and on the way home I realized how much I dreaded having to go back to someone’s house that wasn’t my own. So instead of turning into the driveway, I kept going. Little Man was asleep in the backseat and I just drove. All the way around town for about 30 minutes. Just listening to the silence. Crying a little bit. Missing my husband and our life. And then I came home. To someone else’s house. And cried a little bit more.

{THREE} I am still really enjoying my Project 365. I am amazed at how hard it can be to find things to photograph. But I’m equally amazed at the fact that you can really turn anything into something beautiful if you want to. That’s been the most rewarding part of this journey so far. And I’m really, really, really excited to see where else it takes me over the next 11 months.

{FOUR} I feel as if my little blog is lacking something. Not sure what. I think I feel lacking more in content than anything else. I do all of my photography work on my photo blog, so I don’t really post any of that here. And since I’m not in my own kitchen these days, I haven’t been cooking. Same with crafting…I don’t have anywhere to craft, so posting that is out the window. What would you guys like to see me post more of? Would you like to see some photography tutorials? Or editing tips and techniques I use? Or more posts on marriage? Or parenting? Or military life? Or do you just want me to keep doing what I’m doing? I posted a little poll over in the sidebar. If you would please give it a click??

{FIVE} My son is totally and completely a sports nut. College Football kicked off last weekend, and he is entranced. He loves Football. He recognizes the University of Alabama t-shirts and whatnot that we own, and points to them and says ‘ball.’ Understanding that the emblem does in fact represent the football team. What’s so funny is that the other day I was saying something about a “big ballgame.” Little Man undoubtedly misunderstood me because he’s been walking around ever since calling football, “Big Ball.”

{SIX} I have finally opened my own Etsy Shop!! Life Beautiful-Fine Art Prints is now up and running! I am slowly adding all of my prints to the shop, but it’s a slow process. In honor of this Grand Opening, I am doing a giveaway! Actually, I’m doing TWO giveaways: 1 here, and 1 on my photo blog. Rules for entering a simple.

1: You have to be a follower.

2: You have to go visit my Etsy Shop or Flickr Page [since all of my stills
aren’t on Etsy yet] and let me know which photo is your favorite and where you would hang it if you won.

3: You can tweet this or blog it or Facebook it or whatever for 1 extra entry. And you can also enter to win on my Photo Blog.

 

The Giveaway will close at 9:00 pm Central Time on Friday, September 17! I will choose the winner via random.org! Good luck!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday and a great start to another week!
