I'm your gal

So, you may be asking yourself - why should you tune in here everyday. It's ok, I'm asking myself the same question.  Every waking moment is precious. Sure, in the *greater-good-make-the-most-out-of-life* sense - but also in the *my to-do list has 974 things on it for today and it's only 7am* kind of way too. Your time is valuable. You are the one who gets things done. You are the one that makes sure the little ones are fed and (reasonably) clean. You are the one that makes sure the bills get paid. The dogs are fed. And the one who makes sure everyone gets a good night kiss. You even find time to carve out a few stolen moments with the one who still give you butterflies and goosebumps - swoon.

My family ! ! !

Your time is worth A LOT. So, I ask again. Why should you spend 3 minutes (or 10 ... no need to gulp that hot latte) reading my posts? I want to be your cyber-gal-friday, in a way. Need a few minutes to take your mind off of a kerfuffle? I'm your gal. Need something a little warm & fuzzy and feel good without needing to redo your make up? I'm your gal. Need someone to remind you that your kids/ family/ home/ job/ life are not the only ones in a state of quasi-organized chaos (but that you secretly love it that way)? I'm your gal. Looking to broaden your horizons? I'm your gal. Feel like you are the only one that Pinterest has duped? (Oh my many Pinterest fails ...) I'm your gal. A new charity to explore? I'm your gal. An idea about where to go on your next holiday? I'm your gal. Ok, technically, I can't help you turbo clean the family room before the in-laws ring the bell. And I probably won't be able to dash to Trader Joe's for you when you realize you just ran out of quinoa.  But I can remind you that you rock. And I will. Because, let's face it. You really do. You keep your world afloat and still manage to find time to get the occasional pedicure.


My honey and me

Sadiecakes


I'm just a regular gal. Wife to an amazing man who is my hero on a daily basis and still gives me goosebumps when he looks in my eyes. Momma to a 3 year old who will tell you she's 6 and has a new found addiction to all things ballet. Momma to 2 giant dogs who think they are teacup size and one ailing kitty who still loves to cause a ruckus just for the heck of it. Photographer who loves to document the incredible places I've been and capture the moments in my life and the beauty around me. I'm that friend you haven't seen in a while but four sips into a cuppa, we both forget that it's been ages since we've gotten to catch up.

So, wanna join me on my adventure?  Are you embarking on anything new and exciting?



Tomorrow morning we will explore one of my images - I would love your thoughts and insights.

See you tomorrow,

  1. I can't believe someone else used the word "kerfluffle".. I've said it twice this week and people are like "huh?"... ;)

    great read....lovely photos of your family, although the one of your husband throwing Sadie up in the air made me gasp like I do in person when I see someone do that..lol

    1. It made me giggle that spellcheck knew it!

      Thanks for the encouragement Jude. I gasp too, but fortunately my snapping finger still works when that happens!

  2. Yes, I would have gasped & held my breath too if I were there to see Sadie flying up in the air, but I wasn't, so I think the pic is adorable! lol.

    Love your family pics & the way you write :) Now I'm off to google, "kerfluffle"!

  5. Did you really write the words "I'm just a regular gal"? Cause I'm thinking maybe not -- you are so obviously filled with great love and caring and joy -- so very special indeed. Signing up to follow!
