new life

New life is all around us. Our backyard exploded overnight and looks like this now…





Also, there’s THIS new life!…

new baby!!


We’re thrilled to be welcoming baby #2 into our lives this November! We finally heard the heartbeat this week and caught a glimpse of a very mobile and very active little baby that we can’t wait to hold in our arms this winter! We are so excited about this and so thrilled to be giving C. a little sister or brother. ♥

    Time to get a double trailer:)



    P.S. For me, two has been way busier than one. I cultivated dexter early in the 3rd trimester by telling him the baby only spoke Chinese and it was special language just for him. So, baby would ask him to do things or talk to him in Chinese and he got REaLLY into it. Bilingual parenting idea?

      This morning I was asked out for coeffe by a lovely lady named Sue Mocker whom I met yesterday while volunteering at the Snoqualmie Hospital Districts Marketing office. In my attempt to be polite and curious I waited for Sue to arrive before I ordered a beverage. When Sue got to the cafe9 soon after I arrived she casually and sweetly told me that my drink and cookie was her treat. She then handed me a card that had a printed statement, “Pay it forward” printed across it. Sue had mentioned the Women in Business group the previous day when I had mentioned I would be working as an active marketer in town soon, but it wasn’t until she handed me that card that I made it a point to check out this website and what the group is all about. The symbolism of paying it forward is such a powerful way to connect with all walks of life. Although I do feel that I have things in common with Sue, if I hadn’t, I would have felt the welcoming and accepting gesture within her aware and caring action towards me. I’m excited about keeping my eye out for an opportunity to Pay It Forward myself in the next couple days.

      After traversing South Africa,Nambia, Botswana found iginueodns artisians along the way.I bought beautiful shell and agate necklaces that I loved.Living in a home l7 years, I moved and sold many treasures reluctantly.There was a particular blue agate necklace I especially missed.A friend invited me to a flea market and sure enough, there was almost identical agate necklace..I was very happy and Of course, it now belongs to me.So wherever your travel, your most valuable treasures are in your heart and memory and always with you,Vaya con Dios.Lynnia AllisonMiami, Florida
