Beachy Black and Whites

It's about time to get some fresh prints done and hung around the house, and I happened to remember seeing a sort of 'photo wallpaper' in a magazine or online article while I was editing these beach pictures--now I'm kinda obsessed with using one of these photographs on the wall in a little alcove upstairs.  

I'm trying to get the house in order--not only do we have a baby coming, but several different family members have threatened to come visit before the summer is out.  Is it okay to say I'm turning into a great, grumbly bear and they might want to reconsider?  Can I turn family away?  I'm starting to wonder how the heck I am going to survive August.

*Edited to add that I do love my family, but at 8+ months pregnant in the second half of the summer...I am slightly losing my mind.  That is all.

Ooooh! I can see one of these in an alcove on the wall! Such a great idea. Tell family they can come if they wait on you hand and foot. And I have no magic words for August... just grumble to all us bloggy friends as much as you need too - we promise not to go away!!

The second one is stunning! Definitely a hanger. Well... Any of these are really.

I second the second one for the alcove.
I have MS which sometimes makes me verrry tired indeed. When people want to come see me during those times, I say something like, "I'd love to see you. I just want you to know our entire visit might take place with me lying on the couch."
Perhaps you could use a suitable variation of that with the relatives?

Are all lovely shots. I need to print and frame some of mine but think I need a better printer to do so.

Does your family read your blog:)

I can understand you sentiment when it comes to many visitors with a busy time ahead. Lovely photos.

That would be amazing, especially a really giant version of the first one, you'd never be able to walk past it without smiling!
