mother and baby photos

How tender, am I right? These are some photos I took of my beautiful sister-in-law and her handsome little son while we were in California. I took her maternity pictures too, remember?

Sorry I am late on announcing the giveaway winner! Pleeease forgive me. This semester has been a little crazy, and I just found out the other day that I need two more credits to graduate. But it is alllll good. I will still walk in December—the walk of shame that is... (graduated minus 2 credits) and then take an online class, wherever we are, next semester.  

Anyway, the giveaway winner is V, who said: "Beautiful necklace!" Just email me when you get a chance and I will send your necklace!

Tea for the Tillerman

Just got back from a splendid afternoon tea party hosted by this beautiful girlMy favorite part was when a friend started to say something and then stopped suddenly, “Oh, I can’t mention that at a tea party”, and then continued sipping her tea while all of us sat in wonder imagining something, I am sure, far worse than she was going to say in the first place. Tea party banter can go anywhere from Scottish biscuits (delicious by the way) to “Octomom” and back.

Family photos

Here is a preview of the family photos I took for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. They are such a cute family! Click here to see the rest.

So, it isn’t even fall yet (or is it?) and I am fah-reeeezing. I am wearing socks, slippers, jeans, two shirts, a jacket and a scarf, and I may or may not have just done laundry so I could pile the warm-fresh-out-of-the-dryer clothes on my lap. Uh, no, I have no idea why the clothes are so wrinkled.

Gone Fishin'

Like my Dad says, "Your worst day fishing is better than your best day at work." Very true. Unless fishing is your job, and then, well, I am not sure. I am just glad that living off the land isn’t a necessary part of life anymore, because my husband’s one meager fish just might not have cut it, “Let’s see, you take the little bit of meat on the left and the fins, and I’ll take the little bit on the right and the tail—and well, for the rest of you, there is still a perfectly good can of power bait, I mean marshmallows.”

Thanks to my mom and dad for taking us fishing, to my husband for putting the worm on the hook for me (true love I tell you), and to my dream last night where I caught not zero, but 5 fish.
