When I was thinking about whether to focus on one topic (photography? parenting? cooking?), I went around in circles trying to figure out which way to go. The only thing I kept coming back to was my day-to-day life as a stay-at-home mom. It's certainly cliche and may sound trite, but being home with my children is the hardest and most rewarding job I can imagine having. It's tough at times, but always, always beautiful. I get to spend my days with these wonderful little people who bring tremendous joy to my life. They love me unconditionally, as I do them, and we truly enjoy our time together every day. That might mean an impromptu photo shoot one day, or a new craft another, or a day of baking in the kitchen. It's always new, and I learn as much from them as they do from me. And now I've found a way to share all of that, with this blog. I've followed a few "mommy blogs" for some time now, and I love the network/community that it creates. When you're struggling with an aspect of parenting, want to share something wonderful your kids did, or learning a new skill, there's a whole world of support out there and people to learn from. I'm excited to be a part of the blog community and hope that my readers are as happy to have me as I am to have them.
Now, a few photos from the last couple of days:

|"Um, hi, I look just.like.my.daddy."|
|Lilah, pretending to be sad.|
|And pretending to be mad. I swear this girl will be on stage some day.|
