bath time...

bath time is a special time around our house. a time to wind down before bedtime. play time with papi. a time to get warm and clean. i remember vividly taking baths with my sister when i was a young girl. and i've always taken my children into a warm bath when they have been sick to soothe and relax them. here are some pictures of our bath time girl...

baby hat photos...

sarah over at uniquely you photo has graciously allowed me to use a couple of her beautiful photos showing off two of my hats (which she had purchased earlier). aren't these photos just amazing? what a gift she has...

i offered to send her a couple of more silk hats - one in natural creme and one in rosy pink - if she could take some additional pictures for me during one of her newborn sessions...and she has agreed! lucky me.  :)

yours in newborn sweetness,

me :: monday

okay, i'm putting myself to the challenge. a week of self portraits. now this is small potatoes compared to what erin, over at bluebirdbaby, is doing (365 days - amazing). but a challenge to myself, nonetheless. so here we go with day 1 :: monday...

i've been getting back into the rhythm of reading all of my favorite blogs again. and i'm finding it very interesting that several people are challenging themselves to self-portraits. looking to see the beauty in themselves. introspective. a good exercise, definitely. i think we, as women (particularly in our western culture)...are so often critical of ourselves. and to move into that positive space where we can truly see our own beauty is so very important.

hi everyone.  well, i've finally finished 3 posts that i've had in the edit stage for almost a month now. ahh, this feels good. getting caught up. being creative again. finishing things that i've started. very important to me.

and i'm getting back into a good rhythm in our days and plan to post more regularly again. we've been working on an earlier bedtime routine at night and it's been easier than i anticipated. and i'm really enjoying my creative time. i even ventured into taking a series of self-portraits the other day (inspired by my friend, erin, over at bluebirdbaby)...

so here's looking at you.  :)

yours today,
