Little A, saw this on the street and thought of you immediately. Wish you had been with me so we could have grabbed some chalk and colored in the baby chicks together. I've taken note where they are, 26th street between 11th and 12th ave, so next time you are here we can go and play with them.
Missing you! And your cousin, It, says hi and cannot wait to meet you!
I came across this photo last night. Cannot recall the last time I wanted to jump right into a picture so badly and get right in the middle of a hug.

Tonight I got to sit for a few hours with a friend that has been a huge source of support, intrigue and confidence for me and has been so without even realizing it, I'm sure.
And tonight, sitting there with this person I've only known for a short amount of time, I realized that life changes without you being able to control it. Sometimes you get stuck in things that you never thought you'd be involved in. Things slap you in the face no matter how hard to you try to dodge it. What you desire most doesn't always prevail. But genuine goodness does.
And if you have solid people - truly kind people - to keep you going through the rough patches, you will make it through with your heart, confidence and dignity in tact.
Oh and a smile on your face.

Hope 30 treats you perfectly Scot! Just like you treat lady Jacqueline.
I'm so sorry if all i ever talk about is being prego and children and other boring stuff like that. When I'm not working (which is rarely), my mind is either on the babe or another babe.

When I look at this image, I just want to know her story. She looks like she’s led a fascinating life, and has amazing stories to tell. I love the flower in her hair, the look on her face, and the wonderful lighting. I even love the coffee cup—it all adds to the story. The colors work so well together and the composition is spot on. The shot, and the subject, have an awful lot of character. I wish I had taken it.

I normally wouldn't be concerned but it was just so fluffy and small

I, along with another girl, stood by it trying to corral it into a
After 10 minutes or so we both decided it was indeed a dove, not a
pigeon, and it wasn't hurt or a baby but rather a love dove on a
So if you're on 23rd street today and spot this blue eyed baby, be
sure not to step in it.

I am so thankful to max for having us all to his amazingly perfect home all weekend. this has been such a perfect weekend, from the weather to the company to the food. I feel so happy and rested. I just wish I had the chance to stay here all week long and enjoy the sunshine and sea air. Next year...

Grandmothers are the best. Ever.

I'm seated at my computer overlooking the ocean, everyone is out so the house is super quite, all you can hear is the wind and sea.
All I can think about is my child to be and I just keep praying so hard that this little one has a life as good as I do.
I pray that she sees the beauty in the small stuff and learns from day one to love people for who they are and not who they could be. I wish with all my heart that this child adores the water, long days with friends and family, running barefoot in the sand and grass, dancing, singing at the top of her lungs, finds a thunderstorm intoxicating, understands the peace in listening to your own heartbeat, feels comfort in alone time, basks in the glow of hard core laughter, loves working hard and rewards herself from a job well done, patiently listens to others and never interrupts or tries to outdo, gives a stranger, a friend, a family member extra attention when they are down, wants to have Sunday dinners with me, is never greedy, is selfless without forgetting the importance of giving to herself, has respect and compassion and deep empathy, finds beauty in everything, respects the world and feelings of others, makes wishes as a shooting star goes by and believes it will come true, lives for true joy, never becomes jaded, doesn't stress over weight or body issues, leaves an imprint on everyone she meets, feels confidence when speaking and listening and doing something new, appreciates my friends and family for all I see them all to be and wants to spend time with them even through the tough adolescent years, discovers a world of cultures, finds excitement in the mundane, brings her own sunshine wherever in the world she may go.
And I pray this child enters this world with a smile and it rarely leaves her face.
And I pray she loves me as much as I love her already at this very moment.
And yes, today I think it's a girl...although tomorrow I may think differently.
