Mommy. That’s not my name!

It started off as NooNooBean, in utero. Just a name for my ever growing belly. Websites that track our progress, compare the fetus to fruits and vegetables. Starting off as a bean, an apple, pumpkin, an eight pound watermelon. When my little girl was born, I was in love. I recognized her round cheeks and... Continue Reading →

WordPress Family Award

I have been very remiss. Long story short, I am officially over-booked with the goodness of life. This is not a complaint, I'm just slightly annoyed I haven't kept up. Today I move forward. Funny thing, I've been keeping exciting news to myself. I've been nominated for a WordPress Family Award, by David, a prolific blogger... Continue Reading →

A Turban is a Beacon of Love

CALENDAR | May 2013

Ohh here is a beautiful May calender and poem! More proof that May is inspirational.


MAY, how polite of you to join us!

I see your doing...
In the tips of frail neglected branches, 
in sprouting forgotten seeds.

Where once you laid vacuous,
I see your shadows grow,

I hear you emanating,
in hidden away voices,
the echoing sound of joyful creatures,
enamored by your setting.

I hope you my dear Friend,
see this gentle May.
