13 Apr sweet simplicity
Posted at 07:00h in day to day, SOOC 37 Comments
Even the slowest paced Spring Break still means a total upheaval of any kind of structured, predictable daily routine and I am a routine kinda gal so it can be challenging. Alas, it’s Monday again (deep cleansing breath) and I am giddy to get back into the swing of things. We had a perfectly wonderful holiday week but today I will revel in my glorious alone time. Quiet, still and simple.
Something tells me you’ve got many Spring and/or Easter inspired photos to share so let’s see the glory of your life in your best shot today.

I enjoy reading your feelings about Spring Break. As a teacher, I LIVE for the breaks so I get much needed quality time with my little girl! I love hearing a parent’s point of view.
My image this week is all about a little girl’s attention being captured.

SarahPosted at 12:24h, 13 April
Great shot! here is my little girl, all happy because we are about to go Easter Egg hunting…

Sometime the simplest things can bring such joy. I try and spend a few minutes every day looking at my sprouts and seedlings. Watching them grow, as slow as it seems to be going, amazes me. Nice shot. Enjoy your peace and quiet.
Here are some shots from our lovely Easter vacation.

Breaks are always great but they are always so much more appreciated once you get back to normal. Lovely lovely shot.
My Best Shot

spring break seems so long ago for us (sigh), but i’m glad yours was nice :).
MegPosted at 13:53h, 13 April
My best shot was an easy choice for today
JoannaPosted at 14:06h, 13 April
I love the sweet simplicity of your shot.
carriePosted at 14:53h, 13 April
I am in the same sweet, simple position today. That shot is perfect.
I’m off to start the day and week with a deep breath and a little hope.

Glad to hear you had a relaxing break, but I hear ya on wanting to get back into the routine again. And you guessed it – my best shot is definitely Easter-related. It’s the results of my natural Easter egg dyes.

I love those weathered clothes pins – gorgeous. There is very little green here…we’re still waiting for spring to sprout, though there are more and more signs each day. I think the little bird I captured says it all…
JenPosted at 15:31h, 13 April
I do love the simplicity of your shot.
MaggiePosted at 15:42h, 13 April
Breaks are fun, but I agree, sometimes there is something just as great about getting back to routines. I love those old, weathered clothespins — so lovely!
My best shot is from Easter, but it’s not about bunnies or eggs!
HayleyPosted at 15:45h, 13 April
Your posts always make me slow down and prepare for the best! Thank you for that. I share with you the glory of my life in the simple, subtle smile of my teenage daughter. Sometimes these are few and far between…she is a teenager after all. Check it out at http://www.whenigrow.blogspot.com.

We are still working on getting spring but I had a collaboration this week that I had to share as my BSM.
DawnPosted at 16:30h, 13 April
Wishing you a lovely week~
We had a great week as well and with the visit of some friends from Indiana I saw a whole new side to my daughter!
My Best Shot: Elena and Her Little Shadow
SarahPosted at 16:38h, 13 April
Love the picture of the clothespins! Here is my best shot: http://wisefam.blogspot.com/2009/04/easter.html
Sorry, you have to put up with the rest of my easter pics, but the BSM is the first picture. My little boy, mid-sentence, telling me how he didn’t want his picture taken! Also, this may be a stupid question, but how in the world do I link to my site in the comment instead of copying and pasting the url?
RebeccaPosted at 16:38h, 13 April
Very sweet Shot Tracey. Click on my name to go to my best shot monday. It was a easter week!
WandaPosted at 16:56h, 13 April
Here’s my Easter pastel. Have a great re-entry to your routine.
MandyPosted at 16:59h, 13 April
I’m enjoying a nice quiet Monday as well (the girls are still asleep after a busy weekend). We really enjoyed a visit with my brother and his fiance this weekend, although it involved a trip to ER for my brother……
A Lovely Easter

Spring break is so full of comings and goings of the older kids that I too look forward to them returning to school. Even with working full time when they’re home full time it seems like they’re calling me every hour asking about this or that.
I’d like to say we had beautiful springtime weather for Easter, but alas no. Windy and over cast with scattered rains and even snow in the higher elevation. Spring has certainly turned into a time of chaotic weather patterns that’s for sure. However Saturday we still braved the outdoors to give the horses some treats.

The routine simplicity implied by this image is somehow meditative. My husband had spring brake last week, and as a homeschool family it meant a drop of routine and a bit of wildness. But my image is quite the opposite of wild…

Happy Best Shot Monday!
I can’t believe how well the theme this week–sweet simplicity–fits with the picture I had chosen! Sweet Serendipity!
Thanks for hosting us, Tracey!
MaeganPosted at 18:16h, 13 April
Mmmm…I do have a thing for clothespins!
I cannot decide between these two for my sweet shot:
Have a great Monday!
PunaPosted at 18:23h, 13 April
First time on Best Shot Monday. Thank you Tracy! You are an inspiration for a novice photographer.
Spring break is over tomorrow…can’t say I’m too upset:)
golightlyPosted at 19:20h, 13 April
Lovey. We actually have another week of being off-schedule – but I still have things to get done. sigh.
Here is our simple weekend.
golightlyPosted at 19:20h, 13 April
I meant Lovely.
AliciaPosted at 21:08h, 13 April
Here’s my best shot:
Farmer GalPosted at 01:11h, 14 April
I’m late today! (But that’s better than last week when I didn’t manage to post a picture at all!)
My ‘best shot’ this week was my feeble attempt at getting a perfectly posed picture of my babies for Easter.
CaraPosted at 02:02h, 14 April
I love the shot. Happy Monday!
Here is my best shot, I just simply could not get them to cooperate.

Great shot, Tracey! Here is a shot of my little girl enjoying picking dandelions at our local park for this week’s Best Shot Monday

My sweet shot was taken on Easter, but not really Easter-related. We took a little hike at Pt. Dume on the coast. The water was this incredible teal blue. http://www.flickr.com/photos/32837589@N07/3440809144/

I had a fantastic week! And these two cuties made it even better! http://www.flickr.com/photos/jeroldssis/3435597327/
BertaPosted at 05:56h, 14 April
Our Easter celebration consisted of some ‘not so traditional’ activities! Come see!
KellyPosted at 14:14h, 14 April
I missed Monday, but maybe I can leave one on Tuesday? This one was an instant fave from my Saturday wedding shoot.

When some students stuck with good term paper creating, thence I would offer to buy essay paper at some sociology essay service under such circumstances.
