Sounds like a great plan! They are so little for such a little time and most don't realise until the kids are much older, so yes, just enjoying is the best you can do!

The Summer flies by while the kids have their school. Although I 've been on the internet on and off, I feel I haven't had time to keep up with my daily two. I've been taking pictures every day, but many days without much thought and I haven't been happy... Continue reading

The first post on a blog is probably best to be an introduction of myself. I am a photographer, but I like to dabble in all things arts and crafts and lately I've been doing a lot of fabric designing. I'm mother of three, wife to a wonderful husband. I've... Continue reading
