Growing Up

in Family, General, Photography

She's is growing up. It's very cliche, but the time seems to be moving ever so quickly. My baby is not a baby. I know that it's so, I have the proof, a big gaping hole in her lovely smile. Each and every time, she gives me a grin, I remember that she's not a [...]


TJ the World’s Best Cat

in Family, General, Photography

If you would have asked me 15 months ago, I would have told you that I didn't like cats. I thought they were unfriendly, and a bit too predator like. I was convinced if I were a lot smaller and they were a bigger, they'd be happy to have me for a snack (this may [...]


Brand New Boy

in Family, General, Photography

Our grandson arrived on January 12th! If you follow me on facebook, you're thinking, "we know already!". I must confess to over-sharing photos (just call me Grammarazzi!), but I can't help it. It's either the baby or the cat, and the baby is definitely cuter! He is a lovely, healthy wee boy, and weighed in [...]


Happy New Year

in Family, General, Photography, Real Food / Easy Meals

I never make resolutions, but 2012 is going to be different! This year I've made not one, but three promises to myself. I'm going to have a green smoothie every day. So far, so good. I'm going to take photo everyday in 2012 and publish to my Flickr account. So far, so good. I'm going [...]

Da Bears!

in Family, General, Photography

We've been hanging out in the Canadian Rockies (not Chicago ... regardless of the title)! Six black bears and one grizzly in one day! Woot ... LOVE it! They never stick around all that long after we pull up. I'm sure it's not my kids yelling and screaming and fighting each other for the window. [...]


Georgie Get Your Gun –> Summer Fun!

in Family, General, Photography

The kids have been out of school just over a week. We've definitely enjoyed the time off. I so don't miss the morning chaos. It doesn't matter how organized we are there is still a last minute rush getting everyone out the door in the morning. September stay away. We just spent a few days [...]


Look What’s Hiding Under the Playhouse …

in Family, General, Photography

This fox pup (kit?), parents and three other pups! I wish I had a better lense, or that they'd let me get a little closer. The photos aren't all that :( Such cute faces! This guy was braver than all the rest. They're so much fun to watch. MK xo

Mother’s Day Cake Pops Tutorial

in DIY / Tutorials, Family, General, Photography, Real Food / Easy Meals

Unless you are living in a cave, you are probably know all about Bakerella and cake pops. My friend Gloria (a cake making genius) and I decided to make a Mother's Day version with a mature twist (tsk ... tsk ... not THAT kind of mature!). As you can see these are NOT your kids [...]
