Pyjama Day

I'm the kind of girl who, on a day off, will sit around in sweat pants all day watching PVR'ed television and reading books. This is my coveted "Pyjama Day". Kevin & I believe it's really important to pass along certain traditions to Wesley and this is one that I feel should be near the top of the list. Yesterday after breakfast we brought books, toys, and blankets to the couch and settled in for a day of lounging. Eat, sleep, play... eat, sleep, play...

I'll wipe my own face, Mommy

 After a week of schlepping the poor kid around running errands and rendez-vous'ing it was nice to have a peaceful day at home "doing nothing". 

Even Shiva participated

I think we'll plan to do this every week!

To Blog or Not To Blog

Several friends and family members have suggested over the last couple of years that I start a blog. Although I was flattered that anyone would be interested in my thoughts, I had no idea what I would blog about. Planning my wedding? My pregnancy? Both a little cliche and, honestly, where do you go after the final product? But since our son was born I've started a journal and find I have a hard time keeping the entries short and on point. Turns out I want to talk about my daily life and the things that inspire me. I love reading other "lifestyle" blogs and it seems a good way to pull all my thoughts in to a tidy little basket of reflection & observation. A little daunting but also exciting! So this will be a place where I can share some of my favourite things - be it books, photos, recipes - and experiences. I hope you have fun sharing this journey with me...

Here goes!
