I thought my parents were joking when they asked yesterday if we had any snow. Apparently they knew something I didn’t. We woke up to about 4 inches of the white powder this morning and it’s still coming down! What the hell?! I was just getting used to the idea of spring being here. Whomever said “March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb” was obviously confused. By the way, I appreciate all of you who took time to leave your thoughts and comments on my last post. It was definitely good food for thought. My mom reminded me yesterday that motherhoodRead More →

I’ve got a lot rattling around in my head these days, but very little time to sit down and blog about it. Mostly, I’m questioning my place in the world right now. Am I overextending myself? Am I trying to do too much? Am I just plain crazy?? I love taking pictures for other people, but is now the right time in my life to be pursuing it? The post-processing work especially takes up a lot of my time. And I can only work once the kids are asleep for the night, which means I stay up late and am then I feel like I’mRead More →

Just one to share today. It’s not “technically” my best shot this week, but I like it for the emotion. Ava is always making Julian smile and this is just one example I happened to catch with my camera. :) (That’s Ava’s head on the right side of the pic.) Who else has been taking pics this past week? Visit Tracey over at Picture This to find out! ——————————————- For the record, I can’t believe it’s already Monday again! This weekend seemed to fly by. Jody and I both got a lot done around the house and with the car (oil change and new tires)Read More →

Jody just shared this with me… Shut down day – March 24, 2007 – http://www.shutdownday.org/ “It is obvious that people would find life extremely difficult without computers, maybe even impossible. If they disappeared for just one day, would we be able to cope? Be a part of one of the biggest global experiments ever to take place on the internet. The idea behind the experiment is to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day, and what will happen if we all participate! Shutdown your computer on this day and find out! Can you survive for 24 hours withoutRead More →

It’s been a while since I’ve written about my kids (hasn’t it?), so I thought I’d take this opportunity to do a little update on the whole fam. Ava is 2 3/4 years old now. She’s sweet and funny, creative, fiercely independent, and potty-learned (and has been for about 3 months) except wears a diaper to bed. She’s into 4T clothes (she’s always been ahead in that regard), though some 3T still fit. She values family a great deal and pretends just about anything you can think of is a family – from measuring spoons and measuring cups to hangers. There is always a mommy,Read More →

I was recently awarded the “Thinking Blogger Award” from Liesl of “Come, Mommy” on Sunday and then again from Eva of “Antropologa” on Monday. Thank you, Liesl and Eva! I am so honored that you have given the award to me and am glad to learn that I have inspired you (and hopefully others) to think. :) I had not heard of the award before Liesl mentioned it, but a quick Google search turned up this post that seems to be the place where it all got started on Feb. 11. The “Thinking Blogger Award” is a meme-based award bestowed upon fellow bloggers who makeRead More →
