After several glorious vacation days in Ohio with Godson to visit my family, I can honestly say I spent every second totally and completely intoxicated-- With baby love.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm smitten with my sweet, nearly seven week old, great niece and I promise not to gush too much about her, but please indulge me (again) for a moment.
Oh the smell of a new baby-- It's delicious and I drank it in every chance I got. Despite mumblings about being a "baby hog", and "Auntie monopolization", I had my hands on our happy, nearly 8 pound little girl every change I got-- Or when Godson wasn't *ahem* hogging her.
And let me tell you, Godson was amazing and held her every change he got. Little Miss is the first baby he's known, and he was a natural baby lover, I'm happy to say.
It was a grand vacation that re-energized my soul, lifted my spirits and has me aching to go back again before the snow falls, which in northern Ohio means before mid-October to be on the safe side.
Our vacation was jammed packed with everything from cow milking, ice cream eating, marshmallow roasting, water balloon tossing, puppy dog walking, and baby, family, and more baby! And by the way-- S'more made with Reese Cups instead of just chocolate are to die for!
Then, when I returned to Los Angeles, overloaded with homesickness for Ohio, I had a beautiful photographic package waiting for me from the lovely Christina at the amazing Soul Aperture. I was lucky enough to win her recent giveaway.
This delicate photo of Christina's-- her sweet little blue flower-- Is a flower that I grew up seeing in Ohio and that fills my folk's side yard to this day. Having Christina's generous gift waiting for me on my return was a treat beyond words.
If you don't know the beauty of Soul Aperture, please stop by and say hello. You'll be glad you did.
Now that I'm back, I'm unpacking, regrouping, and catching up on the biggest stack of mail I've seen in a long time. But, I'll be reading and catching up with everyone over the next few days. I missed you guys!
