I am remiss.

I have always found a reason to not post. My camera isn't good enough, therefore my pictures aren't good enough. My father isn't here anymore and that makes it feel like there's no reason. I shouldn't post about my daughter because she doesn't have a say in it. I can't think of anything to say, blah, blah, blah.

As my family works towards living a more self sustaining life, I feel the need to share it.

I missed you. I truly think I need to get back to blogging, to give myself something in these crazy times/days. A place to share, a place to vent and a place to hash things out.

And I'd like to introduce the new love in my life...

Welcome to the world my little Malcolm.

P.S. A new camera would be nice too. Just putting it out there.

this moment...

Inspired by soulemama

In her words: 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. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Our Craft Corner

Which doubles as our dining table.

Mommy works on her hand quilting while Izzie works on her cutting, taping and colouring. Mostly cutting, she's fascinated with her blunt, round end scissors. Toddler bliss.

Halloween Costume

Izzie decided that she is going as a ballerina this Halloween...

And then pulled this awesome costume out of her tickle truck/play basket.
Halloween Costume, consider yourself a two year old. Sweet.

Another Reason

To love fall

Several reasons actually. I am off to make 13.5 pounds of apples into applesauce. Love it!

This summer has been the busiest in recent history. With trips, multiple weddings and a desperate need to get outside..this blog has suffered.

I could always feel that slight guilt over not having posted anything. Not taking many pictures. Not having anything of interest to post. And then I would move on.

It's been difficult for me since my father's passing to post anything. He was my main motivation to post and take pictures as often as possible. I wanted him to feel like he was a part of Izzie's life. And so I fell into a bit of a blog-slump.

But now I feel that after my summer of non-bloggyness (yes, I did just make that up) and rest that I want to start up again. So thank you for your constant check ups and sorry for the wait!

Lots of love,
