Good, Random, Fun ~ Week 9

the GOOD
In 2016 I'm attempting to do #52weeksofstorytelling with a different theme each week.
Week 8/52 - Contentment

There was a time when I aspired to being known. I wanted to be a well-known Suzuki violin teacher who traveled the country teaching at summer Institutes. When I first started blogging, I wanted to be successful and be a well-known blogger. Motherhood and circumstances has changed all that. I barely teach anymore, and am almost completely inactive in the Suzuki world. And blogging...let's just ay I have a handful of regular readers, but certainly nothing like I'd dreamed. You know what...I'm completely ok with all of it. I've found great contentment in being a homeschool mom who blogs as a hobby. When I realized that my own daughters were my greatest violin teaching adventure every, and that my small blogging community was cozy and comfortable, I was grateful and content. So here's to being "just a mom"'s a great thing to be!

mostly black and white with a little green....

spring is truly here in the Pacific Northwest and I'm loving it!

the FUN
morning, cold, happy, song, in motion, in a word...

I'm linking up with Good, Random, Fun and Life Through the Lens


  1. Yes-it is great to be a Mom! Beautiful shot of your daughter and all the flowers are lovely.

  2. You are amazing! I cannot wait to get some PDX spring in in late April!

  3. All such great photos. Smiling that you enjoy a diet Coke now and then as do I.

  4. Spring is in the air but it is too early to say it has arrived here.

  5. I am always inspired by your beautiful photos!
    I love the frog piggy backing on the zebra.
    And I read the post about your neighbor---I'm sorry. Making a garden for Carol will comfort all the neighbors.

  6. Hear hear for just being a Mom!!!! The picture of your sweet virtuoso is beautiful!
    I love the tray for the Lenten looks perfect.

  7. Ah the eyes have it in that first shot - a beautiful capture #LTTL

  8. Oh enjoy your time as a mom, which I know you do. It's fleeting (the younger years) and you will never regret these years spent focusing on your kiddos. Woohoo for you being content!!
