Baby H is finally here!

I was so excited to get the word that this little guy had made his appearance! Even more excited to go meet him! With the world’s best assistant, we crossed the border and played with Baby H for the morning. Is there anything better than a new little squish?!?! Check out some of my favs!

My bees are back in town

I know it’s been AGES since my last blog post and I’m super sorry! Life here gets busy sometimes. *shrug*

I was out working around the pool this morning when I noticed that the lavender was buzzing.


I adore bees! It freaks my kids out because I’ll get right up close to them. I’m of the mind that if I don’t bother them then they won’t bother me. Also, I’m not allergic to stings.

Bees are so much fun to photograph! They are always so busy, you have to sit very still and be very patient. (Two things I am NOT good at)

I didn’t have time to break out the camera today, but I’ll make time this weekend. Instead I will share with you some pics I took with my iPhone of my little friends.

Take time to smell the roses today! (Or lavender, honeysuckle or whatever might be growing close to you, I’m lucky enough to have it all here!)


Also, this is my first blog post using the WordPress app on my phone! I’m so fancy today! Technology is fantastic!

Tiny Tuesday 1.15.13 {and a cat}

Happy Tuesday to you! It’s a cold one today and I thought about cheating on my Tiny Tuesday challenge. I didn’t want to go outside so I was thinking about pulling some old photos off the hard drive to pass off today, but I didn’t and I am very glad! Everything outside is frosted over and these shots were worth the 10 minutes out in the yard. And since I’ll be trapped at my desk today and tomorrow, it was nice to be out in the sunlight, even for just a few minutes.

I’ve also thrown in a few shots of one VERY spoiled cat. He likes this cold weather about as much as I do.

Tiny Tuesday, but on a Wednesday…

You know how it is. The kids are out of school. You’ve been having leftover Christmas cookies and egg nog instead of real meals. Sleep in, stay up late…

I believe I posted yesterday to check back today for a Tiny Tuesday. I failed to realize (due in part to the reasons listed above) that yesterday was Tuesday and today is Wednesday.

Good job!

So I would like to share with you our first installment of Tiny Tuesday.

Please keep in mind that I don’t have a macro lens, so you aren’t going to see anything like that. These are just some close up shots that I get while I’m out and about in the world. Like some snow collected on a branch. Enjoy!
