Roots & Connections

Roots & Connections: One story of how our past finds its place in our present

 

Throwing it waaaay back today. A glimpse of my sweet mama as a child {circa 1950ish}, in her Grandpa’s greenhouse.

Sometimes I don’t really think about how far back my “green thumb” roots go, but it hit me one day standing in the fields this summer on our farm. And I remembered some old photos of my mom in the family greenhouse.

This Is Halloween!

This Is Halloween: Jack-O-Lantern Inspiration

 

We had the pleasure of carving pumpkins with friends this year. So much fun! Do you spot a Pikachu {or two} and a Pokeball? Fairly appropriate since we are going as a family of Pikachus. Looking forward to the cuteness. And of course, the candy haul that Sam will bring home.

Happy Halloween, all!

Reading Time: Our Fave Nature Books

Reading Time: Our Fave Nature Books ~ Good Reads for Kids

 

We have quite the book worm in our house, and honestly, reading is pretty important to hubby & I too. We started reading to Sam as a baby, in the toddler years we could pass hours just reading stories to him, and reading time is built into our day-to-day routine even now. We’ve definitely got a lot of favourites! Some are pretty common, others might not be, so that’s why I thought I would start to share some of our good reads.

Adoption Journey

Adoption Journey ~ A different kind of motherhood ~ Blog by Bubblegum Sass

 

Adoption. A very powerful word. So many unknowns. So many scenarios.

Definitely walking entirely on faith through this. Not blind, but trying to get educated & full of love & acceptance. It’s going to push all my own boundaries and it’s going to take strength that I don’t have on my own. This I know.

So Disney{land} ~ Disneyland Family Vacation 2017 ~ Doing Disney with a five year old

Oh Disney. You have a special place in my heart and in my daydreams. Disney is my happy place {so are buttons}. It’s no surprise that we’ve been looking forward to our trip, although perhaps me most of all, but Sam & hubby weren’t complaining. In fact, I’m really thankful that the two of them let me indulge in all the Disney crazy. So come along on a little daydream about our recent family trip to Disneyland.
