As life has calmed down over this year my "photo life" has finally re-emerged after a short hiatus during my divorce last year. And wow, it feels so good to be back! :) I'm slowly working on all the photos I've had filed a way now and thought I would share a few with you, let me know what you think!

Happy Easter!

I know this post is late, I had good intentions of getting this up last night but it just didn't happen! I had wayyyy to many easter eggs to fill! But I hope you all had a wonderful day! Mine was chaotic, kids are officially on a sugar high, so much so that my son decided to jump on a bed and then fell and hit his head, he has a huge goose egg on the back of his head, so I'm going to be up checking on him lots tonight. And I failed miserably as an Easter Bunny, my 8 year old came to me and said, "This is strange, the Easter Bunny bought my book at Borders!" Oops!!! She looked at me like she was on to me but never said anything. Ugh, I think I've just ruined her innocence!

I will be posting the giveaway on Tuesday evening instead of tonight. I am so tired I can't think straight enough to put it together!

Vacation Photos

I'm finally getting time to add some of our vacation photos here! We visited Seaside, Oregon last week and we were fortunate to have wonderful weather for most of out trip. I had never been to that area so we did some sightseeing to some of the local areas including Cannon Beach, Fort Columbia and Astoria.

This is the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, it is the most impressive lighthouse I've seen. I found myself daydreaming about how they got out there to build it, the winds were so strong this day from the viewpoint that I struggled to keep my camera still enough to get a good shot. So I can't imagine trying to build on a rock in the middle of the ocean!

And there is something about seagulls soaring that I love!

This was one of the neatest finds on our trip to Astoria. We found these darling little roadside flower stands all along the way full of fresh daffodils! I would have bought tons if we had been going home as they were only a $1 a piece!

I've got tons more photos to go through yet and I will share more I finish them. I think I took about 500 photos!

Hello Saturday!

Yay, Saturday has arrived and it's a beautiful sunny morning to boot, doesn't get any better than that! Well maybe +30 would help, but I won't complain!

I have a fun little treat I purchased for myself to share with you today! For sometime now I've wanted to purchase some handmade soap and with our recent switch to organic/green living it makes sense also.

I had long ago "favorited" Dennis Anderson's Etsy soap shop, so that is where I set out to, he is from Portland, Oregon and he really knows his soap with over 25,000+ sales! These photos are a few of the items I puchased from him. I was so excited when my package arrived this week, full of soapy goodness!

After just one use, I was sold, my skin felt so soft! And I'm so pleased with the scents, fragrant but soft and not over-powering. My kids love the whipped soap, and I love that it has a lid so I clean it up and put it away so they don't over use it.

Dennis still has his big Milestone Event Sale going, if you want to treat your skin, you won't be sorry! I'm so glad I finally ordered some, I'll never go back to store bought soaps.

So, I leave you with those squeeky clean thoughts for the weekend! I hope you have a wonderful one doing whatever you love, with those you love to be with!
