a normal thursday afternoon at our house.











2:15 (or so) in the afternoon rolls around, and we'll usually find Grace sitting at the table next to the window (midday sun streaming hot inside) with a book in her hand. She's so serious when she reads, unlike the rest of the time. What's an everyday occurrence at your home? My family has become very talented in the fine art of ignoring a camera, which I'm glad of. I like real-life, not "now pretend you're reading! now smile" kinda shots. Happy Friday!

  5. oh american girl. goodness gracious. i still read those occasionally!
    i truly agree about natural family moments. i'd rather we just let everything be the way it is, not to make it something more spectacular, but more importantly: different.
    a normal occurrence at my house is at around 9pm, when mommy finally comes downstairs from her work and plops down in her favorite chair, gearing up to watch the cosby show + little house on prairie, and dr. quinn medicine woman. she always asks for tea {i'm the only person who makes it}, and sometimes she even makes rice pudding. it's a favorite time.

    great post :))

  11. Hannah, I love how real this is. You don't find a lot of bloggers today who are willing to do a simple post about everyday afternoons, and it means a lot to be that you do. :)

    "Meet Kirsten"! I remember reading that book when I was about eight. I counted myself very smart if I read it in one day. :P

  13. I love how normal, everyday life looks beautiful through your photos. You seem to always find the perfect windows and light! I blame all the bad lighting in my house to log walls, and being in a valley surrounded by trees. :)

  21. I love it! She has the sweetest face! I love the simple moments you capture.

    An every day occurrence in our house? "Music time." Nearly every morning after my boys get dressed they go upstairs to play music: usually the 2 year-old is on the drum set, one of the twins is on the keyboard, and the other twin has the guitar. They like to pretend they're having church. ;-) It's REALLY loud, but sweet.
