Where in the world is…

Where in the world is Julia Stainton?

Actually, I’m still here! Same place as always. Thanks for being patient with me.

Now and then life hands you way more than you really wanted to take on at one point in time.

From planning bridal showers…

my lovely daughter baked the cupcakes

..to working on CHA projects

so excited to work on a wedding album for my son and beautiful daughter-in-lawย ย  (photos by Kirkman Photography)


…to living in a renovation

one bathroom gets remade into two

my current dining room

In what moment of madness did I agree to renovating 6 rooms at once?! Hubby is a gem and so insanely talented though. It’s going to be worth it when it’s all done.

…to trying to keep up with the weeds

using a low number (large opening) aperture is perfect…it blurs them out of the photo, making me look like a better gardener than I am ๐Ÿ™‚

…trying to keep my kiddos out of trouble

my two youngest have a knack for finding it right now

…and of course, the ordinary day to day minutiae, the ongoing sinus headaches and a few other things I have up my sleeve. I’m really not sure if I’m keeping up with anything at all. I admit there are days when it’s so overwhelming. I feel worn. It’s no wonder this has been my favourite song lately…

So if you did happen to miss me over the past month, that’s a quick snapshot of my life right now.

I’m hoping for a little more peace and quiet and time to enjoy the very short summertime. I promise there will be more posts than there have been, even if they are short and sweet.

Take care and enjoy the summer!

  4. Wow you do have a lot going on, I would be so excited to see what it is all going to look like when your hubby is all done, I would like to do some painting and change things up a bit, but don’t know if that will happen or not, my hubby is pretty busy and I don’t do ladders…LOL!
    The wedding album looks great and hope you all enjoy a fun summer!

  5. I sure wish I coukd borrow your hubby and his reno skills even for just a week!! How lucky you are although it really isn’t fun living through renos, especially 6 rooms at once! Holy!

  8. Happy to see you post Julia…I was hoping everything was ok with you and I see that it is ;). I think life happens exactly as it should.
    Enjoy the times and post when you can. I am sure the renovations will surely be worth the dust!

  9. So happy to have you back & knowing that you are well. But . . . I feel exhausted reading about all you have to do! I’m certain you’ll manage everything well, and as for renovating, am I imagining it, or did you go through all that a few years ago??
    Best wishes with it all.
