The Tuesday Diptych Project: Week Six


Desiree (left): I love days when my partner doesn't have to go to work. I love spending time at home as a family; reading books from Gretchen's shelf, laying on the floor, having real conversations. This week we've enjoyed several days together with our little one and it makes me feel so rejuvenated to have him here. I feel really fortunate that when Ryan goes to work, I still miss him everyday. Call it corny, call it sappy -- I call it something else. Lately we've been thinking about making some changes when it comes to work. Soon things will shift: money, time, responsibility, life in general. Sometimes you needs to push plans into motion, and other times you have to wait and see where the cards may fall.

Johanna (right): While away from my home for five weeks I picked up a few new items for Noah's room and was so excited to come home and reorganize the display that is over his change table. On the floating shelf are some vintage toys and globes that I carefully sought and picked out just for him. Some were found while thrifting and some were given as gifts. I think that they look so sweet in his room, a perfect room for a little boy. This is a corner in my son's room that I really like and I wanted to take a picture of it to have as memory.

I love still having that feeling too after all these years. He goes to work and guh it's twice a day and I never want him to go and I'm so happy when he gets home.

Vaughn also made himself a book pile last night....but he didn't read anything he just kinda swam in it lol

Definitely a great feeling! I think it means we're doing something right ^_^

And I think swimming in books is just as educational :)

I'd swim in books any old day! :)

This is a lovely Tuesday Diptych. I love the look of a collection put together thoughtfully, like those wonderful globes. Maybe it will rub off on the lad, and he'll be a world traveler!

Des - your beautiful family is definitely doing something(s) right! It gives me a pang of happies when I see the 3 of you out for a walk together (being a nosy neighbour, I get to witness that from time to time). <3

My husband is a truck driver so I get to see him 3-6 days a month and having so much time apart really makes the time we do have together all the more special.

And missing your partner/husband/significant other even when they have only been gone a few hours, minutes, seconds, is just amazing. it is just a certain something indescribable.

Beautiful Diptych this week. I can't wait to see next weeks.
