The best part of living in a place that has ducks, baby ducks! I was photographing these sweet little things when my son walked up to the window and said "Duh".  I've been trying to teach him to say duck for weeks, but this was the first time he said it on his own, knowing what it was...I was just a little proud ;)

My lesson learned for today...

that taking a toddler to the beach isn't as much fun as you'd think.  I know I'll enjoy it more when he gets older.  It was fun watching him have fun though :)

I received a lovely birthday gift from a friend of mine who lives in Idaho.  She knows I love tea, and sent me a beautiful glass teapot specifically for loose leaf tea!  I was so excited to try it, I ordered my new favorite tea, Vanilla Rooibos and brewed some as soon as it arrived. (No, really, I opened the box and brewed it right after!).  I look forward to many more piping hot mugs of tea!

just added some milk and I was in heaven!

I have two words for you.  HUNGER. GAMES.

Oh wow.  I am pretty sure if I ever find myself in an end of the world, me against the world situation, I am gonna find my inner Katniss Everdeen....which means I should probably become proficient in some form of self defense...

You know you are an adult when you get excited over boring gifts, like dish towels.   Seriously...I recently celebrated a birthday, and my mother gave me dish towels, because she knew mine were old and ratty.  This, my friends, made my day.

The only things that made my day even better?  My son laughing hysterically in his carseat...for no apparent reason.  ♥

Happy Father's Day to all the great dads out there, including my awesome hubby!

I'm currently in love with this!


Yes,  I changed the look...AGAIN.  But, I figured out (after hours or trying) how to make blog headers. I left this one pretty simple. I spent lots of time on one for my friend's blog for her hair business. I spent lots more time (we're talkin' lots and lots and LOTS) of time on my photography blog.  In my defense, it was the first blog I worked on ;).  I am pretty excited that I know how to do this now!  I might change them seasonly, or, if I get bored monthly...but, really, with a toddler, I don't get that bored! 

Life with a toddler...what a subject.  I now have very few friends who actually take the time to spend time with me. I can't drop everything at a moment's notice to go hang out now, and the friends that understand, and still try to schedule things, or drop everything to hang out with me when I spontaneosly call because my husband has the day off...they are GEMS!   I have been able to do some crafting here and there, and when I can find my poor camera's battery charger, I'l start taking photos and sharing, and maybe even start sharing recipes again!  I once again find myself so over facebook, and wanting to blog more.  So...if you read this, thank you, cause otherwise, I'd be talking to no one...and I do that enough as it is ;)

I've been a bad blogger.  I rarely blog!  I want to get back into it though...for the few who actually used to read this sad little blog. I finally redid the look, which, I happen to really like.  So, we'll see if I stick to it ;)
