Our Little Infinity

This was going to be a “Wordless Wednesday” post, but it’s not really wordless, and Wednesday is mostly over, as it’s about 6pm! ;)

I was all over the place today — I had several errands to run which took me to my grandma’s neighborhood (visit to the car dealership to check my tire pressure and Target to buy some essentials and Hanukkah gifts), so I spent about an hour visiting with her.

My grandma is very hip (considering that she is 92!), and while I was there, she admired my nail polish.  She still gets her nails done and loves choosing interesting colors. Last year, I bought her an awesome holographic polish that she loves. Our shared love of nail polish is something that I love about her!

The color I’m wearing today is called Our Little Infinity, from “The Fault in Our Stars” collection by one of my favorite polish designers, LynBDesigns.  It is a truly magical polish and I’ve never ever seen anything like it! I have such a huge polish collection and I rarely buy polish anymore since I am very picky, but I’ve wanted this one for quite some time, so I ordered it while it was on sale for Black Friday!

My grandma was totally enamored – so I ordered her a bottle of her own for Hanukkah! ;)

I'm obsessed. #LynBDesigns #OurLittleInfinity #nailpolish #purple #sparkle


So it’s December

It’s like I blinked and now it’s December.


Wasn’t it yesterday that I wrote my Fall Bucket List?

Didn’t I just help the boys pick out their Halloween costumes?

Wasn’t I just planning Zachary’s birthday party and waiting for his tooth to fall out?

Yeah. Yeah, I guess all of that happened. I feel like I slept through most of November and the entire first week of December, and just woke up and realized that things are going too fast. When am I gonna get everything done? I was supposed to lose 5 more pounds this week. I was supposed to clean up my office. I was supposed to finish re-reading Dragonfly in Amber already. I was supposed to finally finish crocheting that scarf. I was supposed to… supposed to… supposed to…

Happy Monday.

Today is the first day in two weeks that I’ve had the house to myself. Between two sick kids and a very sick me, it’s been a very, very long two weeks. This morning after dropping William off at school, I went to the chiropractor for an hour-long massage, which was very much needed and felt great. I came home and began to work. I only have one session to finish editing before winter break, and I’m going to have it done this week, along with all other photo-related work.

Last night I started to feel a little sad because the season seems to have passed by very quickly. Fall is my favorite season, and for most of it, I was sick or hurt, caring for sick kids, or feeling overwhelmed with my work. I realize this is probably a very common feeling for many people (especially when you have young children and/or have your own business) but it makes me sad because this time of year only comes… once a year. There were several things that I put on my “Fall Bucket List” that I never did and probably won’t get a chance to do this year.

I totally realize that I am whining a little bit about a first-class #firstworldproblem but it just brings attention to the fact that life is short and time passes much faster than you can begin to imagine.

Zachary is getting older and starting to be interested in so many new things. He has decided (ever since my husband, Adrian, had foot surgery earlier this spring) that he wants to be a surgeon, and has been asking more & more questions about surgery and the human body. William is hitting the “2.5 year old” mark next week. His vocabulary has doubled in the past two weeks and we are now very close to being a no-diaper household. I feel happy and excited, and definitely proud, but there’s also a little bit of bittersweetness that my little boys are not really babies anymore.

Is anyone else feeling this crazy fast passage of time?

I feel the passage of time and enjoy watching you and your family experiencing the wonders of life!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer

I realize I’m about a week late in posting this, but again, catching up from my crazy week of being sick. Adrian, Zachary, William, and I were very excited to watch the new teaser trailer for the 7th episode in the Star Wars movies, THE FORCE AWAKENS. The teaser trailer is only a minute and thirty seconds, but gives us another fun look into the familiar Star Wars World and excites us for all that is to come next year when the movie is released in December 2015 – just a few days before Zachary’s 7th birthday!

If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, here it is! I suggest clicking on “Watch in HD” and enjoying it full-screen on your computer!

Zachary was so excited about the trailer that he had to immediately create some fan art of one of the new Sith baddies wielding this crazy new cross-style lightsaber!! Adrian and I are so proud of the amazing painting that Zachary made! He really enjoys making his own fan art. We are looking forward to him developing this hobby.

Watched the #StarWars trailer with my 6 year old yesterday & he immediately painted his first #TheForceAwakens #fanart! Love!!! #kids #art #creative #StarWarsVII #StarWars7 #lightsaber #geek #geekykids

I loved Star Wars from the very first one!
