Project 365 {week 18}

Welcome to our first week of May…

April 29: Charlie gets baptized alongside his cousins, Kingston and Kyrie

April 30: My dad's birthday...he made Eddie's big boy bed

May 1: Photography Class at Tulip Farm

May 2: Chillin' with mommy

May 3: Happys in the mail for Charlie! Thank you, Kacia!

May 4: Brothers!

May 5: first date night since Charlie's arrival.

This week I hugged my boys tighter and loved them harder.

Because I was reminded of how fragile life is.

And I remembered how difficult it was to get to this place.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Such a lovely week.

    This week, I hugged my loved ones harder too. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. It looks like a lovely week with lovely things to celebrate. I went on a date night with my husband, too. They come so few and far between. And like you and Alison, I paused and hugged my loved ones tighter and was reminded of how grateful I am (and should be) for what I have. Hope this new week will be great.

  3. I love these pictures. Your dad MADE the bed? Sooo cool.
    Also I love the cousins getting baptized together.

  4. Another beautiful week for you. I love your photos. 🙂
