I only got four hours of broken-up sleep last night. I’ve never been good at napping. I’m just left in this exhausted awake state of being.


Happy/Blessed Beltane, everyone!

Playing Catch-Up

I am pretty sure the last two weeks are catching up because I am beyond exhausted today. Trying to get caught up with the online world.

I Redesigned, Again

I redesigned OSN. It looks best at higher screen resolutions. That’s where you get all of the fancy effects. It’s fine on mobile but absolutely shines on a computer. Hopefully, everything works across the board. I tried to make the homepage an actual one, harkening back to the olden days of blogging.

You are a great photographer! First time stopping by… I love all the nature shots, but the first one is my favorite! I can feel the love!

I’m dying right now. First of all, the sweetness between daddy and Tristan is just crazy-beautiful! And the rest of your photos make me want to run around in the grass barefoot. Gorgeous, gorgeous shots Sarah! I’m going to bed now…while I still have your photos in my head. :)
Thanks for stopping by and linking up. Have a great night!

I love Cherry Blossoms. Great pictures.

My goodness those shots are beautiful!! Love Love Love the shot of Daddy and Tristan and the “feathery” flower.


First I wanted to tell you that I had to come and check out who had such a similar name…Which is great, btw.

I, too, love photography, and these are some amazing photos.

Happy Blogging!

ADORABLE! Lovely shots of the blooms.

The 9th picture down is my favorite! I assume it’s some type of rose… it’s gorgeous! And as usual, all your photos look awesome. I especially like that first one of Keith and Tristan. Adorable!

The sky and the blossoms are great foils for one another and both practically shout, “It’s spring!” Thanks for sharing.

That first picture is just precious!!!

The rest make me sad because I lived in Chicago for so many years and never took the time to go there. I am making sure I take advantage and am going to the botanical garden here in Caguas, PR on Friday.

What beautiful pictures! You are so talented!


Love the photos! A tonic for the master gardener here, who is thrilled that Spring is finally here! Sweet shot of your husband and baby too.
