This weekend we decided to take Chelsea and Jeff's niece Juli to a local orchard. We had a great day picking peaches, feeding ducks, and just spending time together.
The orchard is beautiful. Acres and acres and acres of fruit trees. You can pick apples, peaches, raspberries, and squash flowers (I LOVE these tasty buds fried with a bit of egg and bread crumbs, yum!).
Though it ended up being quite a warm day, Chelsea did great. She didn't cry or fuss at all and was happily smiling and watching all of the activity around her. She is getting to an age where I feel a lot more comfortable bringing her out and about. First time mom, what else can I say?
The clouds were so beautiful. It made me slightly mournful for the inevitable end of the beautiful weather but we still have a few good months before winter sets in. Let's enjoy them!
So I've been thinking about my blog a lot lately. I so want to be able to change the look and post more often and work on all of the creative projects that are floating around my head but alas, that is not my life right now. My days are mostly filled with Chelsea and work. Working outside the home all day makes the time with Chelsea all that much more precious and I don't want to miss these precious baby months. All this to say, my blog is taking a turn towards things that occupy my day to day life and weekends and won't be focused solely on my creative endeavors. I guess that has been pretty obvious over the last few posts but I wanted to make it official. Now, I just have to get around to attempting to play with my blog template to reflect some of these changes. Something tells me that might take a while! I do want to send a big shout out to Monica. I asked her how she made her column headers and she very generously offered to make me some. I'm quite liking them!
Another thing I think I can make some time for is Natasha's fabulous party - It's All About Me. She is giving us a very generous 6 weeks lead time so I think I can come up with some time! This party is truly unique and a wonderful idea. Check out her blog for more info or click on the icon to the left.
