July wrap up in August!

July's photo a day shots start off with the last 8 days of our cross country road trip.  Looking at the pictures make the trip seem like a distant memory.

Then there are shots of the beginnings of the kitchen remodel which is currently in a circling the runway pattern. 
I thought I would pick a favorite picture of the month this time around.  I choose the one that I took of Kate holding my old Brownie camera (in her cut off jean legs as.....knee warmers!!!).

I love this shot because it shows Kate's silly spirit.  It also reminds me of when she was a toddler and her most favorite outfit to wear was her snow white costume, princess tiara and plastic clicky heels.

As she out grew the dress and the shoes the tiara was the one item to remain.  We all thought that she would walk into her first day of Kindergarten wearing that tiara.  She didn't!  But if she wanted to I would have let her.

Love the pic of Kate, maybe she'll be a fashion designer one day. Tell her I don't want tight jeans to be the cool thing anymore!!!

Hey Michelle, some of the best advice I have heard about food storage is to start small. I have enough to last our fam of 8 for a year but I started with a months supply of every day foods. If you are interested this is a fabulous link:

When my husband lost his job a while back it was the only way I was able to feed my family for a long while. HUGE BLESSING to have it on hand, lemme tell ya! :)

Susan said...
