Wanna walk side by side a while Just a few blocks up 7th Ave By the time we hit the park You’re gonna be too old to wanna hold my hand It feels so good I’ll have trouble letting go. –Trouble Letting Go, The Avett Brothers Done. Did I take pictures every single day? Not […]

365 Project: Week 52

This week was dominated by packing and going to Pickwick Lake. It’s time for our “winter” trip. To be real, we almost didn’t make it. The night before, Caroline was too excited to sleep and kept waking up Margaret while we were trying to pack. It wasn’t a pretty sight. Ben stayed up late to […]

365 Project: Week 51

My heart, my hands, they’re kingdom bound Glo-o-ory Where thorns no longer curse the ground Glo-o-ory Trim the wick and light the flame Glo-o-ory My work, it will not be in vain Glo-o-ory, glo-o-ory Oh, we labor unto glory ‘Til heaven and earth are one Oh, we labor unto glory Until God’s kingdom comes –Porters […]

365 Project: Week 50

The stomach bug has intruded our home and I was today’s victim. As a result, I took no pictures this weekend and spent a very unusual amount of time laying around. Poor Ben held down the fort for me so I could rest. We were supposed to leave for Fayetteville Saturday morning to celebrate Ben’s […]

365 Project: Week 49

I’m ready for spring over here! The Hoagland girls are restless and tired of being cooped up. We ventured out to our yard a few afternoons when the sun was at least shining. As you’ll see, Margaret protested a lot. On one of these afternoons, Caroline brought her after nap snack outside and ate it […]

365 Project: Week 48

This week, we got back into our routine (post holidays), and it felt really good. We met friends at the park and enjoyed the beautiful weather on Monday. Ben took of Tuesday to be with us since we ended up having limited time at home as a family for Christmas. Friday night we took the […]

365 Project: Week 47

We’re in recovery mode from the holidays here in the Hoagland house, so I’ll keep it short. Margaret is literally running all over the place now. She also wants to hold something in her hands as she moves, so she frequently steals applesauce and pouches from the pantry and carries them all over the house. […]

365 Project: Week 46

We had a sweet Christmas here at the Hoagland house. On Christmas Eve, the girls were worn out from our trip to Fayetteville (I literally couldn’t get Caroline to wake up from her afternoon nap; despite patting her, talking to her, pulling her fingers out of her mouth, and opening and closing drawers) so we […]

365 Project: Week 45

This week as Ben was flipping through a photobook I made for our parents, he commented on how serene the pictures from certain months looked despite the fact that life was extremely stressful and difficult during that time. His comment got me thinking. I often read about how our social media feeds are full of […]

365 Project: Week 44

We have been playing catch up a little bit this weekend, in terms of celebrating Christmas. We kept putting off getting a Christmas tree either due to weather or my busy photography schedule (#christmascardseason). Every year that we’ve been married, we have gone to my family’s farm to cut down a Christmas tree. My family […]
