The Missing Link – Week 7

Have you ever felt like something was missing from your life? Well, it could just be one of the links below. Hence my post title! You may ask yourself "Is she serious?" Well the answer is "No, I'm definitely NOT serious." I'm just feeling silly. Seriously though, I thought I'd share some of my favorite links with you in an effort to spread the love. What's better is that I thought I'd make this post a weekly thang! No that isn't a typo. I told you I was feeling silly. So the links below may not complete your life, but I'm hoping they, in some way, add to it. I separated them into categories for easy navigation. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Now onto my pictures.  These are a continuation of the pictures I posted yesterday.


Where’s Alivia?


There she is!!!!! 

I was playing Peek-a-boo with her!  She is such a peanut.  She can barely see over the carriage!  That doesn’t stop her though.  She loves to push that thing!


Oh, wait, is that a smile I see?  It is so difficult to catch photos of her smiling!




I love this next shot of her.


I’m also linking up the photo below to the following Photo Challenge at The Long Road to China.  She is constantly trying to move hair out of her eyes and back from her face!  I usually have it pulled back, and I did on this day, but sometimes the barrette ends up in Mommy’s pocket instead of in her hair.  I used Biscotti, a Paint the Moon action, to process.  I’m kind of loving it!  You have to be careful which pictures you use this action on since it can have the tendency to wash the person out especially if you don’t play with the opacity of the layers.  I like the slightly desaturated look it gave to this photo!  It makes you concentrate on her expression more than what may be going on around her like the grass in the background that was bright green and the dark black car that was a little distracting.


the long road

And some randomness!  I love the way this came out though and these just happen to be one of my favorite pairs of shoes!


As a reminder, I recently added the Google Friend Connect gadget to my sidebar for those interested in joining the site. You just have to scroll down the page a little to see it. Additionally, I just published a Contact Me page to the tabs below my blog header where you can either email me or follow me on Facebook, PInterest, and/or Instagram! Happy Navigating!


  1. Hahaaa... adorable Alivia piccys!! ALWAYS LOVE all your fun links, the photo tips & tutorial site is very cool! It's great to find new ones!


  2. Alivia is just beautiful! inside and out!

  3. I'm kinda obsessed with instagram these days. I would love to buy some magnets of my favorite shots or make a little DIY album! Such a great idea. I try to blog my instagram pics so that when I print my blog at least my favorites are saved for future memory keeping. I love the curl in your little girls brown hair. So sweet!

  4. Very cool- love checking out all the places other like.

    Adorable shots as always & super cute shoes. I used to have a similar pair but now my 11 year old has taken them for herself. Still a bit shocked that the only person in the house with smaller feet than me is the munchkin. :)

  5. I love photos like the first one, really close up to the face. It is so awesome to remember those fine details of their little faces.

  6. Totally sweet pics - and great links! :-)

  7. Oh, I love those BW shots of Alivia. She is so cute!
