summertime fun

Hello Sweet Friends!

Summer is all most over... I'm feeling a little bitter sweet about it.
Although I will gladly welcome cooler weather, I'm gonna miss time outside soaking up the sun
with Oliver.

We have had a full summer, walks in the park and hours at the lake.

Oliver's new thing is giving 'gifts'. I can't tell you how many rocks I've collected this summer,

I do know that once summer is over, and we'll be stuck inside cuddled under blankets,
 I'll find more time to blog... that I'm excited about.
I miss blogging, but my time with Oliver has been priceless.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures along the way

being silly at the park

pool time for the first time... mama got in with her clothes on

got the shovel ready... rock searching time

looking for the right one

big smiles

How have you spent your summer?

Thanks for stopping by...

Peace and Love

He's here...

Hello Lovelies...
I do hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as I am.
This time last year I was home A LOT, adjusting to motherhood.
Now with a growing 14 month old, I'm always on the go.
Hopefully when the weather starts getting cooler, I'll be a better blogger.

Ok, now on to some GREAT news.

One of my very best friends Adina and her husband Charles 

{finally} welcomed their new baby boy yesterday.

Charles Edward Guzman-Collins
7 lbs 4 oz

This sweet boy joined his 2 beautiful older sisters

Maddison Renae
(yes she is named after me)


Mable Ann
(yes she gets her red hair from me)

I am over joyed... I just wish I was able to be there (in Denver) for the birth.
I was there when she had Maddison, and flew in when Mable was born.
I think I'll be planning a little weekend vacation soon,
cause this 'auntie' needs to love on her new 'nephew'

Thanks for stopping by...

Peace and love
