Theme Thursday: #HolyLens week 1

Sometimes Theme Thursday themes just sort of find their way into your photos.  And then other times, you reeeeeally have to force it. This week it’s the latter.

Tuesday was Rosalie’s first birthday and we revisited her quite unusual birthplace. We bought her a balloon and attempted a photo shoot. Mostly, it was a no-go, except a quick Instagram shot and this last minute catch of Aliya and Rosie.



Advent is my absolute favorite season. It reminds me of quiet, and candlelight, and reading wonderful picture books to my kiddos.  This year I wrapped them to make sure we got to our favorites. So far it’s been a tremendous hit.



Kevin is my rock.  And here he’s sitting on a rock.  Soooooo… #rock.



Our Korean friends gave us this hanbok for Rosalie when they visited over the summer.  It’s traditional to wear one on a first birthday. And so Rosie wore hers and blew kisses too.  You’re welcome.



How did you all do with #HolyLens this week? Link it up below, and keep an eye on Surviving Our Blessings for next week’s prompts.
