Welcome to Week 2 of the Color, Click, Capture photography challenge hosted by East9thStreet, A Helicopter Mom, Nap Time Is My Time and Sunshine and Sippy Cups. This week the color is orange. Last week I had so much fun participating in Color, Click, Capture that it motivated me to find as many colors of the rainbow to keep working on my art. Oklahoma hasn’t quite decided if we are in Spring or Winter so I wanted to remember a less dreary moment. I was out taking pictures of the boys in a local garden. As adorable as the boys are, I could not stop from taking pictures of the garden too. These vibrant flowers were captured on our anniversary trip to Riviera Maya This week’s photography tips comes from Emily Anderson of Emily Anderson...Read More

@Smarties for an allergy-friendly Valentine’s Day: Love Hearts, Extreme Sour, & some for you …oh my!
4 years down the Gluten Free path and there is so much more for me to learn… Sending the boys to school was definitely one of the hardest decision I ever made. Hunter has had pneumonia a few times thanks to gluten breaking down his immune system. Before me, I had never really meant anyone dealing with food allergies or food restrictions at this level. I find it funny how people talk about me like I am some SuperMom. How do you do it? they say. Like anyone else, I just do what needs to be done while trying to stay balanced between over-reacting & under-reacting. Friday afterschool, our oldest son walks to the car with this around his neck in celebration of 100th day of school, so what do I do? Fruit Loops are scary! He gets in the car. His...Read More
