dpp ’10 :: The First Gift of Christmas

by flowers on December 8, 2010 · 3 comments

Today we received our first gift of Christmas and it warmed my heart better than a shiny new Kindle. An older couple who befriended and supported us when we first moved to town without friends, families or jobs (a story for another day) stopped by to see the baby and visit. They only stayed for [...]


Choose Your Words Carefully

Words are powerful. They can be a soothing elixir of health and wellness and they can also be deadly weapons. Choosing the words we use, in any and every relationship, very well defines our quality of relationships. We can build confidence and show our support with our words; we can also deeply hurt and wound [...]


Photo Friday :: Being Brother

by flowers on July 30, 2010 · 6 comments

These two boys have come along way these past few months. They had to hang tight while we launched a new business this past spring and they bared with me while I had a mama meltdown. They really had to fend for themselves when I injured my hip and needed bed rest the last three [...]

A Million Hours

(portrait of mama & baby belly by Solshine, age 5) If I had a million hours I would write a million blog posts that tell you of all the wonderfulness, mixed with all the growing pains & frustrating dead-ends, laced with life lessons and sprinkled with magical moments.

The Right Time

We had a family milestone this past week. Solshine learned how to ride a two-wheeler! He’s been painting the town red with his balance bike for the past two years and has been in no rush to move onto the pedal bike, but the last few times we’ve been out playing with his friends they [...]
