The Incredible Shrinking Woman!

For those of you out there that know us personally, you may know that I have been on a mad fitness kick for the past year or so, trying to lose weight and get in shape. I have been documenting my transformation as I go along and I thought this was a fun one to share. This photo is me, wearing the exact same clothes one year apart, almost to the minute (if you look at the shadow behind me you can tell we're off by maybe 10-20 minutes?). I'm also about 60 lbs. lighter than I was in last year's photo. And the tree grew and the grass is greener this year!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I figured today would be a good day to highlight this children's book that Omar did years ago. It seems to be popping up in conversation a lot lately. It's a great Irish folk tale written by Teresa Bateman that Omar illustrated using my Irish relatives as characters in the book. Unfortunately, it is no longer in print, but does still offer it for sale. Click here to find a copy.


Ahhhhh... we've finally had one of those lovely warm sunny days. Everybody was outside and smiling, the birds are chirping, the snowdrops are in bloom... Spring is in the air! Spot of course had the best idea of how to spend the morning... taking a nap in the sun. Look at him, he's actually smiling! What a content horse.
