Here it is. My last 10 on 10. I’m thankful for doing this project and being included in the circle of so many wonderful photographers. Thank you for the inspiration! So here we go: my last 10 on 10 is the first day of summer vacation. It was a little chilly, but the sun was shining and we decided to visit our favorite park. We began with a picnic.
Grab another cup of coffee and check out the amazingly talented Jessica Lewis of Jess Lewis Photography!

This month’s 10 on 10 caught me off guard. The hours and days and weeks have been flying by lately and I could have sworn I had another day or two before the 10th. Not so. I remembered (got the FB reminder from our group) while sitting at the animal clinic with our sad pup.
Our Saturday took an unexpected turn when our dog tried to dig his way through a rotted tree trunk to catch a chipmunk. Chipmunks might be his undoing. He loves them so…or at least he loves the chase. He’s doing very well…although he’s none to happy with the bandage. Taken with my iPhone.
See? 48 hours ago this was spotless. The pile is growing. It morphs into a life of its own at an exponential rate. Within the pile: matchbox cars, Skipbo, a Dr. Seuss hat, finger painting, art work from school, mail, tissue paper with stickers, orange felt used for a mushroom costume, a homemade placemat, and a lightbulb. And a dog leash. My children are convinced that all of these items are essential. There’s a big part of me that agrees with them. I just wish I could contain it better.
One of my favorite ladies is up next! Head on over to see Jessica Lewis and her 10 on 10!
Like most everyone else I know, we’ve had a bad go of it with the flu germs this season. Still sniffling here. Today was glorious, though. We decided to get outside and make the most of it! Also, we got a dog a few weeks ago and we’re absolutely smitten.
We arrived home to find an invitation to The Sticker Club (insert ooooh and aaaah) from his cousin. The delight of a 5 & 7 yr old….the prospect of 36stickers arriving in our mailbox over the next month! He read the entire letter with such enthusiasm!
Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like you shot all day long and you’re CERTAIN you captured tons and tons of good moments….only to arrive home and discover….nada? That’s my 10 on 10 this month. I thought I had a good mix, but when I began processing, I realized I captured lots o’photos of the same thing.
Made our way to the Butler basketball game later that day. These two have been going to BU games together since they were toddlers. I’m fairly certain this is the first year they sat still and watched the game. Lots of popcorn was consumed….
Head over to the ever amazing Catherine Giroux and her 10 on 10….
I love coming down our staircase to this every morning during the holidays.
This ornament was made from my grandmother’s pillowcase. And in the evening, a return to my city…my home….and the whimsy of the season on every corner.And now continue the 10 on 10 cheer with Jessica!
Congratulations Dylan & Kim! And now head on over to check out the fabulous Tiffani!
I shot this month’s 10 on 10 whilst traveling to Toronto to visit a few awesome ladies.

Now head on over to check out the ever talented Catherine Giroux and her October 10 on 10….
September’s 10 on 10 was captured on Kodak Portra 400 35mm film sooc.
The morning began with domestic obligation.
We recently purchased a globe and it’s prompted all sorts of conversation. Additionally, it looks lovely in the morning sunlight on the kid’s table.
File this under: Things I’m Going to Miss When the Kids Get Older (Hot Wheels cars EVERYWHERE)…also, ignore how dirty those windows are. I’ve shamed my mother terribly. What can I say? We’ve been doing more important things…

As seen on the street whilst running errands…
Garden Center Bliss…I came home with three new plants and am absolutely delighted!!
Foodie: A farm stand will stop me in my tracks every. single. time.
I came home to this: My son using the mower for the first time and proclaiming, “THIS IS AWESOME!!!!” (yes our lawn was really THAT long…don’t judge)
And there you have it…a day in the life! Up next…the one and only….Tiffani!
This 10 on 10 is all film (sooc). We were all over the city on this day with meetings and much promised side trips for the kids. A good blend of work and play!
The day began in the backyard.
Savored the sprinkles at the local donut shop (I made a promise days ago).
Showed a little love to the new independent bookstore in our city.
Bought tickets for the Soldiers & Sailors Monument on the circle and played with the Diana F+ red scale film 120mm. The monument takes you WAAAY up high to lookout over the city. The kids were enthralled…aaaand we discovered my son may have a fear of heights.
On the street.
Pre-meeting. The kids are incredibly patient with sitting through my work meetings. Dry erase boards and the iPad are key.
Homeward bound. Reflections. She caught my eye.
This was our day. Work and play and life all blending into one. I’m thankful my kids have been able to tag along as much as possible this summer. There can be a lot of chaos involved, but a lot of good shared experiences as well. And I always love the street…always, always. [Nikon F4 Kodak Portra 400, IlFord 400] [Diana F+ Red Scale 120mm]
