Finley at 25 months has a very funny sense of humour and her imagination is busting out so much earlier than I would have imagined. Just today she looked out the window of the truck ... this is the conversation that ensued.

Fin Look over there at the goats!

I see a puma. Pumas are my favorite.

Where did you see the puma?

Right up theywe - in that tree. Pumas and pink are my favorite.

Mama (laughing)
Well I knew pink and purple were your favorite (how is it that she just loves those colours....I didn't push them on her???) but, I had NO idea you even knew what a puma was.

Haha, Mama, Finley funny. Puma no go in trees.

Yes fin you're funny.

Mama, I miiissssssss daddia.

Yes Finner so do I.

And that's when I realized we are having real conversations....

You Can't Make this Stuff Up

This morning Finley came running into my room with her pink baby under one arm and her pink sippy under the other. She threw them on the bed and then hoisted herself up, lunged at me and wrapped her arms around my neck.
"Mama I love you."
I melted she's never said that to me before.
Then she said; "Your bum smells."

Expanding Waistlines

I'm so inspired by photographing food lately! I didn't know it could be so much fun. Polly's Perfections is now open on the Main Street in Washington NC - I've been photographing the truffles so Lori, my friend and the owner of Polly's Perfections, can have a catalogue of treats on hand. She has also blown up some of the photos to hang in the store window and walls.

Super cool - I've never been a commercial photographer before. I've done production stills and entered photography competitions at local galleries. This is just a new and very inspiring medium...and the samples are not too hard to take either!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is everyday when you have the gift of a child.
Finley you are my sunshine and I love you infinitely.
Now please sleep through the night and let me catch up on some much needed sleep, okay?

Loves Ya.
