Sawyer James on Well Beach in Maine.

I love Maine. We go every year since we have family that lives in Wells but this year instead of going on our regular trip of either Hampton Beach, NH or Lake George, NY we decided to go to Maine and get a hotel instead of staying with family. We went with our in-laws as we do every July and it was great having hotel rooms together right on the beach. I love Wells Beach but the tide comes up … [Read more...]

From curtains and … [Read more...]

Magenta Pink Lilies

We've been working hard on our landscape for quite a few years now and this was the year to finally start looking around at flowers. Neither of us really know too much about flowers and honestly have avoided them at all costs. We have been gardening vegetables for several years but never flowers. We bought flowering bushes two years ago and not all have survived. Winters are the hardest for us as … [Read more...]

Mickey & Minnie Mouse Cupcakes for Birthday Party  #momspotted

Can you believe it's May and I still haven't shared Sawyer's birthday party with you? I've been so incredibly busy the past six weeks and I'm just now finally starting to come up for air! I have several posts that will show different things I did and these were one of my favorites!

Sawyers 2nd Birthday #momspotted

I can't believe I still haven't shared any part of Sawyers birthday so far besides his laundry basket photos. For his actual birthday we didn't too much since it was a weekday but we did go out to Friendly's for lunch and Daddy got out of work to join us. Sawyer was pretty happy that his kids meal came with a sundae covered in m&m's. Afterwards we headed over to the mall and went to … [Read more...]

Every year we all go down to our family business that just happens to be located right across from race headquarters to watch the fun and hang out with friends and family. We have multiple … [Read more...]

Sawyer James

I can't believe it's been two years. TWO YEARS since this amazing little boy joined our family. I can't imagine where our lives would be without him here. He is such an amazing little guy who has brightened my days in so many ways. In so many ways it seems like just yesterday he was born. He was so small and so tiny. If I didn't take this photo I might now remember just HOW small he … [Read more...]

Oh boy! What a weekend. We almost got through it too. It was 5 minutes past bedtime but Sawyer was playing so contently. What were a few more minutes of him playing really going to do? Well, Sunday night it did quite a bit.  He fell right into his wooden activity cube he was playing with and sliced his forehead pretty good. At first hubby & I weren't sure what to do. The bleeding stopped … [Read more...]

Some Of My Shutterfly Photobook Stash

I love taking photos. I print my DSLR photos on a monthly basis using Shutterfly. I make a point to try to take my camera out even in the most boring cold winter months. I've stopped making albums but I like having printed copies to look back on. But what about all those pics we take and share on Instagram? It's my#1 picture taking spot and I was losing all those photos each month. What if the … [Read more...]
