365 Days of Photos

This blog is getting a fresh start. After putting a bit to much pressure on myself my days of summer blog did not get to the end of the summer. I have started again on January 1st 2011, if I miss a day or take a long time to upload I am not going to quit, I am just going to try to be more flexible. After loosing my second baby in just over a year being flexible is now a necessity of life and survival and over the course of this year I have idea what will happen but I am open to many things and I am excited to where it might take me.

From the original blog:

On Monday June 21st 2010, the first day of summer I started this blog - sort of a days of summer blog, and when it is finished I am going to print it to make a book for me to remember this summer and the year following. This summer will be hard for me, just as the past 7 months have been becuase I am fighting my infertility struggles at the same time grieving my baby who was born too early and only lived for two weeks. I am going to find something gorgeous, beautiful or just plain cute to make me smile everyday and post it here. I need to start looking at all the beauty out there - and taking the time to capture it! To learn more about me and my journey visit me here: http://raindrops-sammy.blogspot.com

Wednesday July 28th - Mom and Dad's bed

When I was little I loved crawling into mom and dad's bed and Owen is no different :) He loves getting in there in the mornings and sometimes he plays and sometimes he falls asleep. I have some of Jack's things on the wall and on my nightstand beside the bed so I love getting a photo of the both of them.

Tuesday July 27th - Why I love living here

I just love walking through all the trails and being able to walk and get away from all the traffic and people etc.

Monday July 26th - Summer flowers

There are so many gorgeous things blooming right now, I have to stop on my walk a few times just to smell the flowers. These remind me of going to visit Ben in Whistler when we first started dating. I would walk from the highway down to the ferry terminal and there is a few huge bushes of these and I would pick a few and take them with me. We planted one in Jack's garden in the front of our house.

Sunday July 25th - Full Moon

There was an amazing full moon and I just could not figure out how to get a good photo of it. I will have to read up on this and try again next time....

Saturday July 24th - Wedding time!

After a long night at the hospital after we were afraid Owen might have taken a few of my Ty lenols we had a wedding to go to. It was great to have a little break and see all of our friends. I wish I had a few more hours sleep :)
