365 Project – 222: The color purple (August 10, 2013)

For years Nora has asked to paint her room purple. FINALLY, almost 8 years after we painted her nursery a newborn-neutral sage green, we’re giving her an accent wall coated in Wild Violet, which is the vibrant, bold hue she chose. We told her SOMETIME before school starts we’d paint her room, and today, while she’s away at a sleepover, we’re making quick work of this task so she’ll be surprised when she comes home tomorrow!  😀

365 Project – 114: Daddy daughter cartwheels…and using the WordPress gallery circle feature (April 24, 2013)

Here’s a sequence of three pics trying this new wordpress gallery “circle” feature for the first time…it looks kind’ve cool! I just realized when you use the gallery feature, the camera properties are listed when you click on each photo, which I appreciate!

So, this is my husband “trying” to cartwheel with my daughter. LOL Actually, he did a decent job! Grownups: if you haven’t cartwheeled in awhile, you should try it. It’s fun but, harder than it looks! 🙂
