Ordinary Extraordinary Everyday - Mini Photo Challenge Days 1-5

There is beauty everywhere, you just have to pause for a moment and take a look.
It is then that you realize those ordinary moments are quite extraordinary!

My week captured in images...

Kitchen Ritual
Every morning starts with a cup of fresh ground and brewed coffee (thanks to my husband). 
It is my favorite way to start the day!

I started working on wrapping a wooden bangle with wire and batik ribbon from Karen Totten of 
Starry Road Studio. It was inspired from a project by Erin Siegel in her book Bohemian Inspired Jewelry.

Liam loves to look at his reflection in the mirror. It is a daily ritual that I enjoy sharing with him.

 This week I am working on creating Valentine's Day cards! 

Repetitive Pattern
Shower curtain. It stands between me and the day that lies ahead, even if only for a few moments.

I am participating in the Ordinary Extraordinary Everyday - Mini Photo Challengehosted by Sally Russick
The purpose of this challenge is to capture ordinary moments in your life for 15 days. There is a different word assigned for each day and the object is to take a photograph to reflect that word. This is the first set of photos that I have created for this inspiring challenge, which is divided into three reveal dates.

Photos 6-11 to be posted soon...
