All IN A DAY

It happened all in a day.  Storm Irene…down graded from a hurricane to a tropical storm.  Would she hold a punch? Our family, like so many others we weathered the storm…waiting, watching, wondering…what would she bring? We went to sleep Saturday night watching the rain came down..worried? A bit.

{ Project 52 – Week 33 }

Theme  for this week “Slow down and look back.” This was one of the best challenges for me thus far.  It actually made me truly slow down and enjoy a day totally with my son…most of the day hand in hand. That in itself I loved. This theme made me want to wander back to…

Butterflies.
