Profile Pictures

I have been debating on updating my profile picture since the one that I am using (on ALL of my online profiles) is quite dated.  Though I probably should change it, I'm just not quite ready to yet.

How many of you have a special story behind your profile picture?  I'm sure we all do.  After all we selected a particular photo to represent who we are.  Today, I'd like to share my profile picture story.  I'll hope that you will share your story too!

First off, I'll share the bigger picture since all that you would normally see is a thumbnail version. This photo was taken on September 18, 2010 at the San Diego Zoo.  At the time, my husband & I were 3 month old parents.  We were a brand spanking new mommy & daddy duo to an angel of a child.  He never cried much and the times that he did - he was very easily soothed.  We were lucky and we knew it.

I like the "calm" that I feel when I see this picture and remember this day.  Though I was very tired and suffered from sleep deprivation, as new parents do, I was a relaxed new mommy with a supportive husband. This cleared the way of any "new mommy" anxieties.  My maternal instincts kicked in very strongly.   I felt confident in mothering our baby.  I'm glad that my husband caught this new mommy moment.  Baby & I were relaxed, it was a beautiful day, and his daddy & I loved our family outing.  Prior to our visit to the Zoo that day, I had never seen such a sea of strollers. Though much of the time I "wore" our son in a SleepyWrap:  WE too were there with our stroller.  The place was all abuzz with family.  We were a part of that buzz.  WE too were now a Family.

  • The sunglasses (which I have misplaced & been searching for since our Hawaii trip) hid my super tired eyes.
  • Baby's Outfit: I hope that one day my son forgives me for putting him in that silly green & white striped ensemble.  In my defense: I had to shield his delicate baby skin from the San Diego Sunshine didn't I?  This was one of the few outfits that came with a hat that was his size at the time.
  • You can see our son's little dimple & his content expression on his little baby face.
  • Yes, I am actually wearing a little lipstick!  Much of my new mom moments did not include any form of make-up use.

Now time to share a photo of my hubby & my bubby from this day!  They are the story behind my profile pic!

My Blog Life: One Year Later

I guess it's an anniversary of sorts.  I've officially had my Blogger account for 1 year now.  I started blogging here on December 2010.  My son had just turned 6 months old and I thought it was time for me to revisit an old hobby of mine: Blogging.  I first started blogging in 2004 (well BEFORE marriage & motherhood).  My first blog was on Xanga.  I fell in love with blogging INSTANTLY.

Some of you may already know my little secret:  that I do TRY to maintain more that one blog. Reason:  I never did find my "niche" with blogging.  I may seem scatter-brained in blog life, but as I see it:  I am organized in my own chaotic way.  I don't find a need for a formula or to follow any guidelines. I blog for the enjoyment of blogging.  Pure & simple.  I am hoping that 2012 will present more time for me to invest in blogging.  We shall see!
I mention my BLOGGER Blogs above because to add to the mix I also have other ventures out there.

This is my life. Thanks for visiting it!

In Stitches

Hi friends! I'm still around. Life sure has been busy. I wish I had more time to blog - but you all know how it is!

Today I had some minor surgery.  I had a biopsy done last month on a small mass on the back of my leg. Thankfully it was benign.  I had it removed via a surgical excision.  I had quite a few stitches since the removal was quite extensive.

Hubby is going to be in super great guy mode as I heal.  We have an 18 month old super active toddler - and I will NOT be able to keep up with him for the next few days.

Husband to my rescue.
