1000 days ago I started this blog. I’ve fallen behind (more and more frequently) but I’m still posting a photo for each day of the year. Maybe I’ll make it to 2,000, maybe not. But for now I’m pretty happy to have made it this far.
And for your viewing pleasure, here’s a visual summary of the last 999 days. Happy scrolling…
She didn’t take these off all evening.
I wish I had a dress like this when I was a little girl.
Pushing her car down the sidewalk.
The top drawer of my desk.
This was a perfect way to end our vacation.
What is it about kids that they just don’t seem to care about getting so messy?
Snuggling and getting warm and dry under the towels at the pool today.
She held Minnie’s hand all the way to daycare.
Another truck photo…
He read the entire book in one night… while at a cub scout event.
The gun has a face.
I took these photos a few months ago and have been saving them since I knew this day would come at some point this year.
The view from the concave side.
Tiny jeans and lots of sand.
Almost 3/4 of the way through book four.
Our weekly shopping trip to Target.
I love that the plates, cups, utensils, teapot and cooking pot were all mine when I was little.
I kind of liked the contrast between the stark white at the top and the gooey muck at the bottom.
As you can see, my mom loves frosting.
You can kind of see the leg of one of the two people who came tonight.
Mirrored ceiling in Boscov’s
I love finding cute handmade things on Etsy.
I think he may need a belt.
Origami heart bookmarks.
This was not the way I expected my day to start.
It kind of looks like a green tongue doesn’t it?
Still in surprisingly good condition after 16 months.
He got all of the gears to move at the same time!
Is that a camera in the square next to the words “Free Air”? Why would they need a camera on the air pump?
Waiting at the doctor’s office for her two year checkup.
They were yummy.
Again, thanks go to my mom for saving so many of my old toys!
I love little knitting projects like this one.
Captured in mid-air.
It was a wild and crazy night at our house.
Ribbons for each race hanging in front of the white wooden box that held all the cars.
What a wonderful view.
A new fashion trend?
My son’s entry at his elementary school science fair.
First time at the new Costco.
I don’t know why, but it makes me so happy that my daughter likes these toys (Calico Critters) – they are adorable.
My daughter seem to be dominating this blog… (photo taken with ipad mini)
So many lights!
My bedside table and view out the window.
Labyrinth in an abandoned reservoir.
Elmo being visited by the angel Gabriel… or maybe it’s the angel Grover… or the angel Cookie Monster?
The back of the clown’s hat isn’t all that exciting to look at.
99% of these were mine when I was little.
It’s funny what you don’t see when you are taking a photo until after you get the file downloaded.
I’m a sucker for big bold graphics.
The back of a delivery truck.
Simple and bold.
Bubble blowing after dinner.
Good and evil.
Looking down into my hydrangea plant in the back yard. I probably should pull those leaves out… I doubt I will, though (said the lazy gardener)
It’s amazing to me that something in nature can be so shiny and metallic looking.
I find this both wonderful and extremely distracting when driving into Philly.
The toy my son is resting his head on was my favorite stuffed animal when I was little.
All of the trophies were made out of Duplos.
Versatile stain remover.
Those crazy Unitarians (actually, this is where my husband and I got married – almost 13 years ago!)

You have no idea how happy it made me yesterday to finally find her!
I love how large the images were behind him.
My office is in a converted chapel that was originally built in 1887 and isn’t very well insulated. Incredible Heat Machine to the rescue.
We went out and bought my daughter some snow boots since all she had were these rain boots. She didn’t seem to mind, though.
Holding his robot and waiting in line for his turn to show me what he programmed it to do.
Unfortunately my son had already returned his shoes when I took this photo so his are missing from the group.
I’m a giant!

I. Love. These. Boots.
I absolutely love these leggings.
Wearing a beer bottle hat.
I love toddlers in tights.
My mom still has my dad’s uniform as well as two from my brother and my Girl Scout uniform. Sometimes it’s good to have a mom who doesn’t get rid of a lot of things.

I love yarn so much.
I love simple flat compositions like this.

The best part about this store is getting to and from the rooftop parking.
He’s probably thinking, “I wish she would get that camera out of my face.”
Do you say “s’more ingredients?” or “s’mores ingredients?” I’ve always wondered if the singular of s’mores is s’more.
Basking in the glow of the ipad.
Under the table.
I’m so happy they opened a second location and it’s near my house!
I love the reflection in the table.
I can’t bring myself to throw away any scraps.
You can sort of see me, right?

Don’t they look appetizing?
Bright yellow ceiling and curved light fixtures at the Lego Store.
Why is it the grass seems to grow faster than I have the energy to mow it?
I used http://www.gasbuddy.com
to find out if any local gas stations were selling their mid-grade octane for $3.65. Luckily one was so I made a lunchtime trip in order to get this photo.
The “cake” was a big hit. Rice Krispie Treats stacked to look like a game of Minecraft.

Almost nobody on the road.

Maybe it’s the blue eyes?
I love a good neon sign.
I see this truck all over town and it always makes me smile.
I love the juxtaposition of natural and man made elements.

Shiny high tops
A black and white photo for a somber occasion.
Have I mentioned I adore having a little girl?
Shopping at Costco.

It’s so fun to watch them make cotton candy – and even more fun to eat.
Most of it has already chipped off. I love how it matches her dress today.

Luckily I actually like most of these songs.
I love the bright green.
I hope she does OK today. She was very excited to wear these.
Second grade art hanging in the hall at my son’s school.
