Life recently, via my iPhone

I love the practice of taking pictures daily. I love the fact that it encourages me to find the lovely, the rich, the wholesome parts of life right where I stand. And I love how the magic of sharing pictures provides us with such an authentic glimpse into daily life. Here are a few snapshots taken on the good ol’ iPhone these past couple weeks:

stealing my husband’s Saturday morning coffee 😉
Our goal is to spend time every evening curled up with a good book. We’ve been fairly consistent with this. If I’m not working on a new novel, I fall back on this standby – and my favorite author of all: James Herriot.
I don’t talk about it much, but we have a 75-gallon African Cichlid tank, which we absolutely love! These fish are our first pets besides Bjorn’s many cacti 🙂 and we enjoy watching them and caring for them. We do not have a TV (nor do we want to purchase one for quite some time, if ever??) so this lovely tank is in a place of prominence in the living room. We love it, and the peaceful focus a fish tank brings to a room, in place of a television with shouting commercials vying for our attention. 🙂
new sweater. <3 this texture!
One of our new oil lanterns. They add such an enchanting glow to the living and dining rooms! What can I say – we’re old souls 🙂 Plus now we’re prepared for possible power outages! 🙂
A Barnes & Noble date: dreaming of/learning about dogs and American military history… typical. 🙂
Saturdays, coffee, with this man.
sooo excited that my Darling magazines arrived!!!

life of a teacher who travels between schools: fur-trimmed hood up, scrape off car, and we’re off!
what Jack Frost painted for us one evening
God’s promises are as evident in His sunrises as they are in rainbows, to me. “See, I am making all things new!”
Gregory Alan Isakov. Vinyl. Enough said.

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you’ve had a full, happy, productive week! May this weekend bring you rest – the kind that you emerge energized from!

PS – I’d love to see your daily life snapshots! Leave your link below 🙂



    1. Thanks, Becky!! 🙂 that’s funny! I guess you get the coffee all to yourself then! I usually don’t drink coffee during the week but I do enjoy it on a slow weekend morning 🙂

    1. Aw, thank you, Miriam! It’s one of the joys of carrying a phone around all the time like so many people do…we have the opportunity to capture everyday life in a fun personal way!
