Oils Spills and Community Cleanup

Oils Spills and Community Cleanup

We are so grateful for the workers that spent their night cleaning the shore and for the men and women in Santa Barbara dedicating their time to clean up the oil spill.  We only have one world and as Paige would say, go out and hug the world, it will hug you back. ;)

Weekends for the Soul

Weekends for the Soul

Celebrating Memorial Day this weekend I'm reminded me how grateful I am for those who served for our freedom, those who gave their lives so that we can live ours in peace.  Well, this weekend was one of those that I could not have been more grateful for.

The Writing on the Mirror

Being a new mom, I feel I am having a rough time losing the last 5-10 lbs of the 'baby weight'. Even though I look at the extra fat as a beautiful reason for how my son got to planet earth, I'm also pretty hard on myself about it, internally and verbally saying abusive things about my appearance and my body often...

It's a Small World After All

Of course I didn't mention anything to her as I didn't want to freak her out ("Hey, I just wrote about you on my blog." No...), but it made me chuckle a bit inside to think about how small this world can be sometimes. 

HAVE MERCY

All I know is that I'm banking on a Michelle appearance, hopefully Kimmy is just as nuts as before and I can't wait for that San Francisco theme song to fill my living room.  Anyone else on my page?

My Birth Story

Finn and I are getting into the swing of things, but I do want to mention this is the hardest thing I've ever done in my whole life. BUT, when I see his little face, what can I do but feel all the love in the Universe is packed into one tiny little 8 pound package that I helped create...
