A Bar of Shampoo

As a nature lover, I believe we have an obligation to take the best care possible of our world. I don’t mean this as a political thing, or a debate about climate change. I just love the natural beauty of the world, and I hate seeing it marred by trash and litter. A lot of […]

10 Month Old Baby

So, wow, I’ve come to the exciting time of having a mobile baby. She’s past the “lay there and look cute” stage, she’s got a lengthy agenda of things to do, and no time to just sit around. She is constantly on the move. She just learned to crawl. As in, yesterday. She was taking […]

2020 Goals

Has it really been 1, 5, or 10 years already? If not, disregard this and get back to work.  But if it has, wow, time sure does fly. Minutes ago I was pregnant, and seconds ago a baby was pulled out of me, but now that baby is almost a year old. I’m learning more […]

Christmas at the Bay

We spent another holiday at the beach. This seems to be becoming a trend. I’m practicing my landscape photography and collected quite a few photos. Here are my favorites.  Feels like going to summer camp! If only the horses could go… but the HOA says no horses. Sheesh, HOA’s never want anyone to have fun. […]

Not Very Good Cupcakes

I discovered that I’m pretty terrible at making cupcakes. I just assumed it was a natural trait but no, it isn’t. I made some, and they were awful. I started out ambitious. I was going to make cupcakes for a friend’s party, but I would make them horse themed. I looked up horse themed cupcakes, […]

Video – Day With Baby

12 week baby

It suddenly dawned on me that Bridgette is growing up so fast and literally changed on a weekly basis. She’s not the tiny newborn anymore, gawping at the world, and my photos of her sitting around just aren’t the same as my living memories of her. I found myself wishing I had an actual video […]

Body After Baby

It’s now been 11 weeks since I had Bridgette, and I’m pleased to report that I still have a body.  I say that because I’ve heard and seen of so many women who are afraid that having a baby will ruin their bodies. Or they did have a baby or multiple babies, and they feel […]

Time Management

tummy time

Little baby Bridgette is now nearly 5 weeks old. It really does go so fast! Granted, it probably also went fast because my life has recently become a blur of days. Day and night no longer matter. Time is abstract. All that matters is the cry of the wild Bridgette, her little pleas indicating any […]

The Gender Reveal

Big news in our world! The baby is in the factory, continuing to get bigger and stronger, but to double check on that, I had my anatomy scan to ensure all the parts were there. After all, we don’t want any surprises!  The anatomy scan is typically done right around the 20 week mark. They […]
