Naptime








It was serendipitous. I found everyone napping - at the same time. I wondered the hallway like a lost freshman, unsure of what to do with my free time. Ignoring 6 loads of laundry on the bed I grabbed my camera and practiced shooting in manual. A sleeping subject is certainly easiest to photograph for a novice. No pressure to get it right the first time. :)
Craigslist delivered that little chandelier. The post said 'vintage Italian tole chandelier', and it didn't even bother me that it had a bad paint job (such a pity because look at how cute the original green would have been) or that the sticker clearly said 'Made in Kentucky' (ha!), because it was practically free.

Those are the happy mommy moments that help you get through the 'other' ones. Quiet and creativity and pretty babies - the lifeblood of a wonderful life.

Looks like maybe someone wasn't napping? (Lily?) ;-)

That chandelier is neat! What a great find.

Weird question - Roman's diapers - do you use a special service?
