Daniel's Ship
The girls and I have been having the loveliest time!
I'm just cherishing every minute with them & I haven't been taking as many photos
as usual but I wanted to share this beautiful hand carved ship
that Daniel made. My boy just blows me away :-)
The old books were at a really cool little Cafe-Bistro we went to yesterday
that had the best soft pretzels & cappuccinos!

My daughter and I just watched a very sweet little (older) animated video called "The Mousehole Cat" on Amazon Prime, about a cat and his owner who save Mousehole, Cornwall from a storm. It was so sweet, with lovely artwork (adapted from a book), and then I checked in here and Daniel's little boat looks like it should be in that film. :)

I've just started to read your blog and I love your photographs. There is so much sunshine and light in every one, I can almost feel it! Its usually quite overcast here in the West of Ireland where I am from - its so good to catch a glimpse of your beautiful country. Thanks!

I guess I don't have any idea of where you live except that it is in Mexico. I have an image that it's somewhere remote and off the beaten path-which is a good thing. When I saw the video of the cafe, I realized you're not so far removed from "the world" as I know it. A good thing also. I really must get to Mexico.

Happy to hear you're having fun with your friends!

De todo lo bello que muestras acá y cuentas, me encantó el barquito que te hizo tú hijo Daniel. Me da tanta risa de que te saca de quicio, pero así somos alguna vez todos de hijos. Lo que nos queda como madres, es disfrutarlos tal y como son, porque algún día dejarán el nido y extrañaremos justo eso.

Besos para tí y tus hijitos!!

That boat is sooooo cute. We actually live on a sailboat and have a site for our adventures and another site for the adventures of the Legos on the boat. He might be a bit old for the site but can check it out at if he's interested. I really love your site and your monthly screen savers help me to stay on track with the date. (We bought a few of your boat prints before we dreamed of moving onto a sailboat and really love them.)

Ray Suspend Shades are already seen across Hollywood in the course of background. Ray Ban Cats
Since they are cozy and stylish, these kinds of superstars liked wearing them and also swayed movie audiences. The particular contact lenses are also available in different tints. Several are in the shade lighting and some are usually shaded black, with each match incorporates its very own event. For their ease and comfort, fashion, and also wonderful features, these kinds of Beam Bar Sun glasses tend to be for a long time however you like however renowned.
