Scavenger Hunt Sunday

1.  This is ME!


(Luke is such a Mama's Boy that right now it's a BIG 
part of who I am at 37+...and I wouldn't change a thing.)



2.  Resolution(s)


(I'm more of a "personal-growth" gal...but still I 
will learn to use my very amazing sewing machine 
in 2011!  Seriously.  No...really.  I mean it.)

The Paper Mama
Photography love...




3.  Innocence


(My boys are so sweet and loving, at ages 2 and 7.)



4.  Treasured


(I am constantly amazed by my life.  I get to sit in 
the floor with my 2-year old and wait until it's time 
to go to the bus-stop for my 7-year old and cook for
my sweet hubby...plus take a ton of fotos...and still 
be girlie.  It's certainly not always 100% smooth, 
but it's always treasured, for sure!  XO!)


Mikayla: my life in words


5.  Primitive




(This was a most-amazing-bargain and it hangs in 
my dining room.  Its hand-carved and the back is 
inscribed with "1st - 1931".  How cool is that?)

I saw your "this is me shot" and thought that is my favorite. Then, I thought the same thing after looking at each photo. Love them all and your perspective is wonderful.

Dina - I can't pic a favourite today. I hope you succeed with the sewing machine - before I went back to work I had it out on the table permanently.

Treasured is my favorite! I completely know what you mean. With my youngest being 5 already, I'm holding on tighter every day!! The sewing machine is a love from my past I hope to rekindle with a new machine. You're adorable!
