Planking the alphabet

Sarah liked to plank. Yoga style. It was her first attempt at standing. I love this old video as she chews and planks for some contemplative, fun play time.

Technical difficulties

January 13, 2014  |  Act, Rant  |  No Comments

Hey! So I haven’t been able to post here on my blog for awhile. Technical difficulties. If you visit regularly, you’ve notice how the look/format has changed. It’s all part of the fixing, re-doing and re-working some things to get it all up and running again.

I’ll be back soon!  Just working out the details!

Hope you all had a glorious holiday season and are off to a great start in 2014!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I could be a Debbie Downer and complain to you all about what’s going wrong in my life. But I won’t. I’m going to focus on the good. The positive. The good people in my life. The good things in my life. And all that is right.

I will give to those in far more need than me. And I will send good thoughts to those who need it – that I can’t help in other ways.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! (Forget the original Thanksgiving message – as it has it’s flaws – eloquently told by comedian Eddie Izard on the pilgrims first landing in Plymouth).

Just focus on the good in your life and how you can bring good to others.

I will be spending Thanksgiving with friends – as I have no family in Los Angeles. May you find the same equivalent of people to spend time with for your weekend of gratitude too.


Here’s my last pumpkin picture of the year.  (I put this one on my fireplace mantle – I loved it’s curvy stem). I just can’t post a pumpkin pic after Thanksgiving!  I mean, Christmas decor and Santa made their way to you in stores BEFORE Halloween even hit!  I’m like way old new here.  :-)


Silly cool

I bought a silly pair of sunglasses for Sarah – knowing full well they would probably only stay on her head for .26 seconds.

I don’t get how people get pics of their kids in hats –or any accessory! My kids usually tear them off before I even get them on all the way, let alone ever get a picture of them in it.

Even though Sarah doesn’t use a pacifier often (only when she thinks it’s funny to scream during Max’s nap time or she’s overly fussy) – I gave it to her anyway – hoping to transition her easily into sunglass-wearing-totally-cool-take-my-picture mode.

Nope. She wanted both the pacifier and the sunglasses gone – within seconds.

And that was that.

A lucky life

I’m lucky to live in a country where this is possible. Life is precious – as this video beautifully reflects.
