Men At Work

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

While having spring fever seems to be all I talk about lately, there is also another recurring theme to our winter days:  Jax wanting to be just like Daddy.  Whether it is shoveling snow or fixing an outlet, Jax is right there to shine his flashligh or offer a…

Joy of Love Day #28: Companionship

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

Today is the final day for the Joy of Love photo tutorial and I'm going to miss it.  Even though I only participated about once a week, I still loved getting the emails and thinking of ways to document how I love my family. I need to continue doing that, tutorial or no, on…

Joy of Love #24: Ocean Beach

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

Today's Joy of Love assignment was to document Where.  Where I fell in love.  Where my heart became his.   I could have applied this to my kids, but who wants a picture of a yucky delivery room?  I'll take sunny California any day.  San Diego, where JDubbs and…

The Beginning of a Bucket List

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

We all have a Bucket List.  You know, things we'd like to do before we "kick the bucket."  Well, my father-in-law, who has lived in New England for twenty-five years now, had yet to take an old-fashioned sleigh ride through the snow.  It was on his Bucket List.  So this weekend, with all our family in tow, we obliged him and headed…

Back to Basics

Follow my blog at "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

An easy, basic craft that eased the transition between dinner and bedtime.  A little filler that reminds us that there are animals out there in the winter wilderness who might like a little help getting through the last few weeks until spring.

Why I Blog

Why do I blog?

 

It's a question I've been asked, been pondering, been mulling over, been justifying quite a bit lately.  As I try to shape this space into something that people enjoy and can relate to, yet is still uniquely mine, I have to make choices and try to be interesting.  Try to engage, persuade, entertain, inform.  I blog to connect with the millions of people out there like me, who…

Joy of Love #12

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

As I mentioned about a week ago, I'm somewhat participating in an online photography group/tutorial.  To me, it's a daily reminder to consciously acknowledge those I love.  It really rocks and the woman who is running it shares great tidbits to help with…

Surrounded By Beauty

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

I used to live in San Diego, California, quite possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world and without question the most beautiful place I have ever lived.  My life then was lazy and chaotic, rocking Uggs and flip flops, exploring mountains and deserts and beaches.  But the most central part of my casual life in SoCal…

What I Know (Baby Mum-Mums!)

This blog (http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com) is not supposed to make me out to be anything more than what I am: imperfect and constantly learning.  Even with two kids I stumble upon or discover or hear from a friend new ideas, tricks, or trades that make my day a little easier.  I found such a trick, in the baby food aisle of Target (the nearest of which is over an hour from me here...sigh...), that taught my…

In case you didn't know (or haven't seen my 365 Project picture of the day), let me tell you that Jax has moved on from just regular old board books to the more interesting (and more expensive) picture books.  This is exciting because although I'm still reading…
