{This Moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see. Inspired by Soulemama.

  1. Playdate? I used to love painting as a kid, such fun. Even better to do it with a friend.

    1. Yes, and no. This is the little one that joins us to homeschool two days a week. Yesterday, was out last official day, she is with us on Monday, but I am taking them on a little adventure. Then we take a little break for the summer :)

      Enjoy your weekend too Chrisy. xo

  2. Outdoors! The perfect place for painting.

    My moment was found along a stream in the woods.

  3. What a nice quiet time. Little artists at work. Makes me think of this amazing summer camp the Fine Arts Museum here in town offers to kids. One week covering all mediums in the Museum studios and gardens. I think Reece would love it!

    I had to cheat a little this week. There was no way a picture could capture the moment!

    1. Oh that sounds awesome. I have actually heard about something similar for homeschool kiddos in our area. It is run in one of the historic houses by the lake. I really need to look into it. Thanks for the reminder :)

      It was the perfect cheat my friend. xo

    1. It does help the creativity flow for sure. It has been nice this week, humidity has been very low, and the temperatures just perfect. We have a polar vortex blowing in next week...can't believe it!

  10. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon - some outdoor painting!

    My moment this week is a little bit of a cheat - it's our ten-year anniversary, so I posted our love story instead of a single image. Many happy moments tied up into one little post: http://notintentonarriving.blogspot.com/2014/07/our-love-story.html. Have a great weekend!

  17. A perfect summer moment with a friend. We've been enjoying such nice weather and outdoor activities as well. I think we're all still trying to get over the cabin fever from the rough winter we had here in New York. Before we know it, it will be upon us again!! UGGHH!! : ) Have a beautiful weekend!!
