Turkish Delight

We haven’t been eating out too much lately, it’s just something we’ve been doing less of to conserve and to monitor our diets… But it’s just such a lovely treat to go out and enjoy a nice dinner out together. We love the restaurants on 4th street, a long row of colorful and multi-ethnic options […]

Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas to all of you ladies and gents! I hope it was a good one. You can bet ours was as sweet as pie! Well… We didn’t originally expect a particularly “fruitful” Christmas, as this has been a bit of a down time in our lives, financially speaking. I think I’ve mentioned […]

Sleepy Head

Lately, Ayla has been skipping a lot of naps. So this set of photos really capture a special part of the day that I miss, to catch up on work and projects, and just re-energize for the next round of spinning heads and crawling on ceilings. You know… I’m always a little envious of parents […]

Thanksgiving Fragments

  How was your thanksgiving? Ours was simple and nice, enjoying the day with great food and loved ones. It was also my birthday, and I was excited to be able to squeeze it in among the festivities… …It’s only the third time in my life that my birthday has fallen on Thanksgiving (the day […]

Little Monkey

Oh, I’m so scattered lately! I feel horrible when I take this long to post (as does any blogger I suppose, when time gets away from them). I’m still alive, just so you know, working on various time-consuming projects. A couple of web designs, illustrating a children’s book (weee!) and a few other things. I […]

Piglet-Tails

If you’re a mother of a little girl, one of the biggest ambitions for her on your “can’t-wait-to-see-or-do-list”, might and PROBABLY is: PIGTAILS. Well, if you are anything like me, that is. And that’s saying a lot, because I’m really not very girly at all. …Of course Ayla was not only born with far LESS […]

End of Homeschool Year 1

For those of you who follow me through instagram or facebook, you might be a little more familiar with the fact that I’ve been homeschooling Lucien this last year (his first year). Although I’ve been completely open about it, I’ve not featured much about it here on the blog. I guess it never occurred to […]

Brother and Sister for Brother and Sister

It’s been a while since we’ve have little kitties scamper through the house like some kind of miniature horses… 5 years, I suppose, since the day that I brought our little runt kitten home from a yard sale out of a humble plastic tub entitled “Free”… too little to even eat soft cat food (I […]

Camping!

I’ve been feeling a sad distance with my blog lately… sort of like that feeling you get when you haven’t seen a close friend nearly as often. I’ve just been terribly bombarded with photography projects these last two months, as well as having a hard time staying up late (which is when I work). However, […]
