Day 304 | Friday


Annetta | My last and final photoshoot day before my images are due. I think I really left everything for the last second. 

Stephanie | My sunglasses just randomly broke on me the other day. I HAD to get new ones. So we stopped in at a Ross today while out getting groceries. The girls both felt the need to get some too. They picked the most wonky ones they could, but they totally suit them. The look like little movie stars.

Day 303 | Thursday

Stephanie | Captured this picture while trying to use the self-timer. I hit the button but not the timer button and got this. Too funny.

Annetta | Took a day off from my photoshoots today and knit after my usual working hours. Staying home is getting tough because I am daydreaming of Italy, Greece, and all the romantic destinations for our 12-year anniversary coming up. 

Day 302 | Wednesday

Annetta | Lately it's all been about photoshoots for work. Had another one today and yes they are all Christmas themed this month. I am sure my neighbors are wondering why we have a Christmas tree up.

Stephanie | Sawyer and I were trying to use the self-timer on my camera. I love how imperfect this shot is, and we are together and smiling. 

Day 301 | Tuesday

Stephanie | Still no power for the school, but we have ours back on, so its a free day for us. Good thing, I am beat after our crazy full weekend. I need a day of nothing.

Annetta | I felt a little rebellious today and went for a walk. There are just time when you need to get out of the house for fresh air.

Day 300 | Monday

Annetta | All I will say is timeshift. The sleep-in was nice, but the getting dark at 4:30pm isn't so nice.

Stephanie | Power is still out, so there is not school today. Hubby also took the day off. Did some errands in town to kill some time.

Day 299 | Sunday

Stephanie | After church today we had a little playdate with our friends. Just as they were leaving our power got shut off due to high winds and fire threat. The girls tried to get in a quick game before the sunset.

Annetta | My morning started with my doggy spilling my coffee. Luckily, it was a chill knitting Sunday as we can't go anywhere anyway.

Day 298 | Saturday


Annetta | It's photoshoot day today. I am thankful that I am in lockdown with one of the models or else this photoshoot would have been beyond stressful!

Stephanie | Opening day of duck season. The girls are helping dad get all his hunting gear together for his hunting trip tomorrow.

Day 297 | Friday

Stephanie | Worked on building the goat pen some more today. Getting T-posts in super rocky clay is quite difficult.

Annetta | My last outing before Slovakia goes back into lockdown for some weeks. I needed to run errands.

Day 296 | Thursday

Annetta | Today I needed a walk alone which gave me an opportunity to forage for the photoshoot I needed to do for work. 

Stephanie | Picture day and a dentist appointment. Sawyer was the first kid to need a filling done.

Day 295 | Wednesday

Stephanie | Lots happening today. Mostly me feeling overwhelmed with trying to get 3 kids washed and ready for picture day tomorrow.

Annetta | Met up with a dear friend. We went for a nice long walk to the park, had breakfast, and picked up some flowers. It was a perfect friends day out!

Day 294 | Tuesday

Annetta | Today was my friends/roommates birthday. I went to the store to get her some flowers and we celebrated a little.  

Stephanie | Today we made some Halloween cupcakes and watched Hocus Pocus and Nightmare Before Christmas after school.

Day 293 | Monday


Stephanie | Another Monday. Another new week. Sounds like we are getting close to opening the school back up part time though.

Annetta | We decided to keep the kid home for the time being. It's daily walks for us if the weather is nice. 

Day 292 | Sunday

Annetta | Went on another photography walk, but this time it was with my friend and we enjoyed a long 2-hour walk. 

Stephanie | After church we went to Home Depot to gather the items needed to build a new goat pen.

Day 291 | Saturday

Stephanie | Just a girl and her Lego's. She has to have them, at all times!

Annetta | It was a bummer of a Saturday. I worked, cleaned, and cooked. I also decided to take back my new camera and get a different model. 

Day 290 | Friday

Annetta | It's been a quiet Friday at home. With all the rain coming down and flooding around Slovakia we didn't really go anywhere or do much of anything.

Stephanie | So happy its Friday!


Day 289 | Thursday


Stephanie | Feeling inspired by these dried rose petals.

Annetta | Went on a photography walk with my sweet boy. Trying to keep him active while he's at home from school. 

Day 288 | Wednesday

Annetta | I find the original cinnamon roll recipe disgustingly sweet. So today I tried a less sweetened version, but just as delicious. I'll be making these again in the future!

Stephanie | Sunny sunflowers bring happiness.

Day 287 | Tuesday

Stephanie | Aloni, the keeper of the laptops.

Annetta | Today my husband surprised with a package. In that package was a new-to-me Canon 5D Mark III. We've been talking about an upgrade from my 7 year Canon 7D, but I had no clue he actually got one!

Day 286 | Monday

Annetta | I gave myself a semi day off. I did work my regular job, but then I ignored all my other tasted and started a new cardigan. 

Stephanie | Another Monday, the most chaotic school day of the whole week. Zoom classes or Google Meet in the morning, then work drop off/pick up at noon, then the day begins with the weeks new work.

Day 285 | Sunday

Stephanie | These beautiful roses wilted too soon for my liking and I have since left and forgotten them. I looked at them again today and thought they were still so pretty even while sitting in moldy water, yuck. I snipped the buds off and have them sitting in my prettiest dish to have a 2nd round of beauty

Annetta | I decided to start a Sunday sewing project. I received some wool that I will slowly sew a winter dress with. I'll keep you posted!

Day 284 | Saturday

Annetta | We haven't seen the in-laws in such a long time so we met up at an outdoor space, the arboretum. Fall showed off for us a little and I love it.

Stephanie |  House cleaning and grocery shopping today. Ended with a beautiful sunset, glad I ran out to capture it.

Day 283 | Friday

Stephanie | These silly hens are laying eggs in the middle of the driveway and sleeping under my roses!

Annetta | I went on a walk in our neighborhood. It was just the perfect fall day and my heart was super happy that it was outside exploring.

Day 282 | Thursday

Annetta | My life is bible study right now. If I'm not studying for it then I a meeting up with the wonderful girls. Thursday are our day of the week where we meet and chat.

Stephanie | Some new roses are blooming outside. Pretty pissed when I took pictures only to find my SD card didn't save them and I had to re-shoot my images. Technology is frustrating today.

Day 281 | Wednesday

Stephanie | Some birthday goodies. Mums rocking the fall vibe and little buttons and some hand drawn illustrations from my sister.

Annetta | Today's main goal is to catch up on the bible study. I think I am 2 or 3 days behind. I cozied up in bed to make it something special.
