Everyday Photos

 These day we don't take many photos, unless we are with my family. We don't carry any camera besides our respective phones, and just snap photos on a whim. We don't have many glamour shots, but we do have many day to day moments captured. Often they are simple pleasures or fun finds. Rarely are they breathtaking or well shot.  But, they tell the everyday stories of our lives and I think they are beautiful.

I wanted to share some of these with you that I just pulled from John's phone-- they contain many stories and share a glimpse of the "day to day" in the McElderry lives.

 John calls this one "Nude cow reclining". Do you see it? This is on our trip in Florida recently for Thanksgiving.

I see advertisements for my company everywhere in airports and can't help but take a quick shot. I sometimes think Accenture advertises in the airports just to raise the morale of their people (who basically live in airports).

 We occasionally  take photos of delicious food, since we love to share and savor yummy food. This is a Belgian waffle John had while in Belgium for work. He swears it is the best waffle he has ever eaten. They eat waffles as a late night snack/dessert, and not for breakfast.

This is the Boston Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. John and I have a goal to see all of the temples in the world, so we often have many photos of temples on our phones. This year we saw 4 new temples. 

This was from a Family Home evening bike ride to see the U.S.S constitution in Boston. We barely missed a huge rainstorm. We try to have a family night every week and try to always do something fun and enriching for our little family of two.

John in the pursuit of the elusive perfect blazer. There are a surprising amount of photos of John trying on clothes -- he is a lot more fashion conscience than I am. 

What do you take photos of day to day?

50th Birthday!

In July and August, my parents both celebrated their 50th birthdays! John and I went down for the weekend and we had a nice family dinner. Below is the yummy and delightful food, as well as the pretty decor done my mom, sisters and I put together.

I am so grateful for my parents. They have accomplished so much in the last 50 years. I am constantly learning from them and having those "Aha!" moments where I realize they were right all along.
