my cocoon….

I’m not one of those that has walls of family photo’s all over my home. I just don’t.

What i do have are a few here and there and most certainly…i do have some family ones upstairs. I have a wall in our sitting room off the bedroom with my family photo’s and some in the upstairs hall.

I’ve always felt uncomfortable having them on a wall in our living room …..maybe because i see my family ALL day long…that the last thing i want to look at is the photo’s.


I love just having one single framed picture that states something……and sitting alone….with a little bottle or possibly a small sentiment next to it. The one of lola above….of all things is her preschool picture. I loved how the photographer grabbed her in a way that is so lola……and from an angle….not the typical preschool smile and say cheese photo.

This above is my only wall of family photo’s……in my sitting room….off the bedroom…

yup……i might be guilty of not having the 15×20 super sized photo or a mantel in which my wedding photo sits on……

but for me…..i want stages of our lives….and it changes yearly……

I use all similar color frames in all different sizes and shapes and then incorporated a few different elements…

such as the framed butterflies and the letter “B”.

I didn’t realize it at first…..but the butterflies represent my 3 children…….

and butterflies start off as caterpillars…..which must be nurtured and cocooned….then they develop their wings….

and one day will fly off on their own….even the {secret} favorite child….

i was just kidding…..really…..just kidding…..

*deep sigh*

{don’t think i’m getting all mental here……or emotional….because i am fully aware that these children will one day grow up and move out…..

14 years to be exact….

and trust me….i am FULLY enjoying every single day….

well……

maybe not FULLY enjoying EVERY single day…….

but i do know they will grow and leave the cocoon one day..}

o.k…..i did tell Fin he could stay forever…..and have his rock band in the garage while playing video games on our sofa with all of his friends……

but then he told me ……….

no mom…….because i’ll be at my job……..driving the garbage truck………

hmmm.
