hello there!

on her birthday

hey there!

i took an unplanned little break from blogging for the past week or so. it snuck up on me, but apparently some “off-line” time was needed. i’ve been busy writing writing writing lately and felt that i just didn’t have a blog post in me. (just for the record- the writing is for my workshop, NOT another book, although it does feel awfully similar! )  

i always know it’s time to return to this space when i start thinking of many things to share with you here. i’ll be back to a regular schedule this week, but i thought i’d pop in, say hello, happy monday and i hope you had a good weekend!

the photo above is of ada and her new friend, the beluga whale. for her birthday a couple of weeks ago, we took the day off and drove to the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. luckily, we got a late start to the trip (the story of my life) and managed to arrive just as the 600+ school kids were on their way out!  hooray! we ended up having the place practically to ourselves!  

it was a special day and the perfect way to ring in year #2! 

more soon! xo *s


  1. I so know how this "vanishing act" goes! Time takes on a whole new dimension with kids around! Love this image of Ada (she is a little girl now! Where is that baby I first met?!) and I have found memories of the mystic aquarium. My girl LOVES whales ... and sharks ... and jellyfish. It is so much fun re-dscovering things through their eyes. Lots of zoo trips in our future this summer :)

    xo Lis (oh, I will be posting soon about my mini-journal creations. I think you need to develop a summer camp for us all!)

  2. that photo is so magical-amazing!

  3. Oh, our local aquarium! Isn't it great?!

    I also love the age of two. It's one of my favorites; it's gotten bad press with all that "terrible two" nonsense. I always loved having a two-year-old in the family.

  4. Oh what a beautiful photo. We took our (now 3 yr old) daughter there for her 1st birthday too x

  5. Enjoy the break. I'm a total believer in unplugged time to recharge the creative batteries and regain a balanced perspective on life. ~Heidi

  6. that's an amazing photo! I'm in your online squam workshop and I can't wait.

  7. This photo IS wonderful, Sarah! My package arrived exciting! I'll email you later today about it.

    Have a blessed and creative day!

  8. Sarah- this is such a freakin awesome picture! Great photography skills lady.

  9. those beluga whales are great!! they interact so much with everyone who comes up to them. we went a few months ago. a wonderful place!!

  10. They are famous for their attractive designs and they can easily match with any type of cloth. There are several companies which can provide you with different types of jimmy choo bag but the quality they provide is low. The leather which they use is of poor quality which ultimately results in a tattered bag. You should opt for a company that can provide you with high quality of jimmy choo handbag so that the designer jimmy choo outlet can serve your for a longer time

  11. No posts for awhile. BOO HOO! I will keep checking back. Hope all is well.


thanks so much for saying hello! i do my best to reply to comments, please know i read and appreciate each and every one! xo *s
