What Have We Done?

Our home. Peaceful, quiet, playful and full of gentle laughter. Then the bubble burst. Our home of three has changed to a home of four and it seems that with the blink of an eye, our family life has been turned upside down.

 

How are we adjusting to being a family of four? We're coping... barely.

Random Thoughts After Having My Second Child

It is amazing how the "solitude" of having a baby can make so many thoughts race through my mind. I decided I would share some of these random thoughts. Perhaps they're not so random. Maybe you've thought some of these things too?

The Birth Story of Hope

How can I begin to write this? I sit here, hormones raging, body riddled with pain, wondering how do I tell this story without losing control, without breaking down? I can't. However, I know this story needs to be told. Armed with a cup of tea, a box of kleenex, and sitting on my donut pillow, I want to tell you the birth story of my sweet little baby girl.…

{this moment: baby's arrival}

Inspired by SouleMama



This week I'm a little late but I have good reason to be!



Hope Marie was born on Thursday, July 14th! 9 lbs and 6 oz and 22" long. She has an amazing birth story but my body can't tolerate sitting at a computer long enough to write it. I'll be sure to share it in the near future. In the meantime... I had to share a couple moments instead of just one. I think this occasion deserves more than one…

Tar and Feather Me! I Can't Stop Nesting!

Okay, I am officially crazy. I can't stop nesting. It's become a bit of an obsession and I don't know how to stop! What have I done? Well... I've cleaned my house to the point of obsessiveness....

My Best Life: A Plea For East Africa

If you haven't already heard, there is a food crisis of epic proportions happening in East Africa right now.

This morning I was watching the news and I was devastated when I saw the reports of people dying of hunger. Read more and if you help out, I will post a link to your blog/website on my blog!…

The Red iPod (a.k.a. Ghetto Blaster)

I find it entertaining that my daughter refers to the old ghetto blaster in her play room as "the red iPod". She loads a cassette tape, presses play and listens to it. Wait until we bring out the record player. That will blow her mind....

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Horchata - A Great Summer Drink

I had not heard of Horchata until I heard the Vampire Weekend song, Horchata. I always wondered what this beverage was and what it would taste like.

 

Sunday mornings while I drink my morning coffee, I usually watch The Food Network or The Home and Garden channel. This past Sunday, I ended up watching Mexican Made Easy (and am I ever glad I did)! On this particular episode the hostess, Marcela Valladolid, made....…

My Daughter's Art Gallery

My daughter loves to paint. For months we have been providing tempera paint for her to work with. However, the task of setting up daily painting experiences has been daunting. So to resolve this issue we purchased a great set of watercolour paints for her.

 

She loves the watercolours and has created some wonderful pieces of art. I decided that I would fill four empty frames (which I was saving for travel photos) and then hang her artwork in the entrance to her…
