Put A Mask On It


The autumn leaves are at their peek here in Auburn.
It is beautiful. 
The highlight of our week was Roscoe's first visit to a pumpkin patch.

When I was a little girl we had to get our pumpkins from the grocery store parking lot. 
So I think Roscoe was pretty lucky to be able to go to a real pumpkin patch. 

He helped his Daddy pick out a big pumpkin and I picked out a tiny one. 

We brought it home and put a "mask" on it. 

We are going on a mini road trip this weekend and making carmel apples too.
Fingers crossed that it will be magical.

Charming Roscoe

 I just can't get over this photo. 
Such a concerned little man.
Every day is a filled with discovery around here.
Today we sang this together.
We are so in LOVE. 

Auntie Buff

I forgot to tell you all about so many adventures Roscoe and I had while on our trip home last month. 
The little man and I had the chance to go to Arizona to see my beautiful sister Buffy for a few days.
 My Buffy WAS the baby in our family for a very long time.
Now she's Auntie Buff to our Roscoe.  

We had a magical time shopping, visiting olive groves, taking photo's, chit chatting, eating fabulous food, and reuniting with good friends. 
I wish I could live next door to Buffy.
We always have the most fun.

Three of my dearest friends live there and we had a fabulous reunion. 
I am so lucky to have so many "sisters" out in the world.
They make my heart happy.
I love all my friends so so so much.

love love,

Sleepy But Oh So In Love


One of the things that bothers me most about living in small towns is the movies I am most excited to see rarely come to town. 
It bugs me.
Amazon delivered Moonrise Kingdom this week and I loved it. 
It was so nice to have a date night with my boys here at home. 

Life has been super busy with walks in the park, trips to the library, work, autumn goodness and everything Roscoe. 
Our little man sure is a lot of work. 

My special treat to myself is shower time with LUSH It's Raining Men shower gel. 
It smells amazing and makes me feel pampered and pretty after a long day.
I never want to shower without it again.
It is that good. 

Roscoe is growing so fast and he makes us laugh everyday.

This week he has come up with new facial expressions to entertain us with. 

Bono Baby and Roscoe helped me decorate for Halloween this week. 
We dressed up our bunny's and Mister Snail with fancy little masks and scattered glittery pumpkins about the house. 

Roscoe played on the swings at the playground for the first time this afternoon. 
Probably one of the cutest things I have ever seen. 

I am sleep deprived and busy visiting the chiropractor twice a week but I wouldn't change a thing. 
These boys (Daniel, Roscoe, and Bono Baby) are my whole world. 
I can't wait for our next adventure. 

love love love,

Fairy Godmother Wishes

Dearest Friends,

Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comments on my last post. 
One of the greatest things about the Internet is the ability we all have to stay connected and support one another through our trials.
When Roscoe arrived I felt that I needed more privacy in my world. 
It felt natural to keep more of my life private and only share certain things with family and close friends. 
Because of that I'm afraid my last post may have been misunderstood by some. 
While I do find this transformation to becoming a good Mommy very difficult, I need to tell you all that I am happy and well.
My life is filled with joyful moments and I am not depressed.
I am stressed out and tired but I am also in love with my life.
I love my little family so so much and I feel very grateful for all that we have. 
I wish we I could send a Fairy Godmother over to your home and ask her to make your wishes come true.
Wouldn't that be wonderful.
Instead, I am here to be your friend, to send happy wishes your way, and to look for the happy moments each new day shares with us.

I hope that we can all be brave enough to admit that things can be hard and that some days take a lot of work and wear us out.

How lucky we are to have wonderful friends to cheer us on.

p.s. Did you see the new episode of Once Upon A Time
I am so hooked on that show.

A Time And A Season

I've been busy trying to figure out how to balance my life and be a good Mommy. 
It is hard and most days I feel like I've messed up in a dozen different ways. 
While Roscoe brings so much joy to my world, I still feel like I am mourning my old life. 
I know we all know this but being a full time Mom means making a lot of sacrifices.
When I am sleep deprived, these sacrifices, seem overwhelming to me and I get sad.
I have been trying to find myself.
For that I offer no apologies.
I am not the same lady I was before having Roscoe and I think that is okay.
We are all on a journey and there is a time and a season for everything.
I hope you all know that I care about you. 
Here's to the adventure.
