Past due

It is definitely past the due date for a new post, I've just been having trouble deciding how I want this blog to be, and what I want it to accomplish. Is it to shed light into my life, or is it just a way for me to get down ideas and thoughts? Perhaps it will become both.

This summer has been flying by, with all this heat and humidity we are certainly not used to in the Northeast. I've always been one to comment on how much I love the warmth and do not love the cold, however I've become accustomed to knowing our summers are more on the mild side. Climate change has definitely reached us up here!

Little O is over one now. She is walking, running, climbing, falling, and everything in between. She is a constant babbler, with some real words and names mixed in there for good measure. A couple of weeks ago I finally made the switch over to cloth diapers, which is something that I wanted to do from the beginning but just never knew where to start. It's been a learning process as to how to make it work, but I'm confident that everything will work out. I will still have some disposable diapers in the house, especially when we are traveling, however I will be cancelling my diaper subscription since I will no longer need so many every month. I bought the cloth diapers secondhand, and while the lady I got them from has a different style preference than I do, we are making due. O doesn't seem to mind either way, but I've heard diaper rash is less common with cloth so I'm sure she will appreciate that.

Hopefully I will remember to use the next few weeks or so to post more regularly and hone in on what I desire this space to be. Bare with me, but I hope I can create something you all can enjoy and brings some light and happiness into your life. Now I'm off to check the garden before a quick cold shower!

Peace and blessings,
Naomi

Rock with a view

This place is beautiful. Watching the transition of spring to summer has been such a wonderful experience, you can see the green moving up the mountains as the snow on top slowly reseeds. When the sun is out, which isn't as often as I'm used to being from the east coast, we try to spend as much time as we can outside. Be it just playing in the backyard, snacking on the porch, scouring the beaches for sea glass, or hiking to new areas, we squeeze as much as we can into each day. Lucky for us the days here are so so long, with the sun rising around four in the morning and setting close to midnight. I'm still not used to the evenings being so bright. The other day little O was looking at the ceiling of my brother's house where we are staying as asked what those things were. They are lights, though she has never seen them used, which is just astounding!
Kodiak has some amazing places to explore, and so many that I haven't had a chance to get to yet. Luckily we still h…

Books we love: Sleep Tight Farm

Little O is one of the biggest book worms I know, besides myself. She can just sit on the couch or on her bed or in her little nook and read anything she can get her hands on for hours and hours. Library day might as well be a weekly holiday it's so well loved. That being said, I don't think all children's books are created equal. There are the sweet and lovely, and the ones that drive you crazy to read over and over. I thought it would be nice to start a little series where I highlight books we enjoy, since book recommendation posts are some of my personal favorite to read.

The first book I'll share is called Sleep Tight Farm by Eugenie Doyle. It is such a sweet story about a family of farmers putting their farm to bed for the winter. The illustrations by Becca Stadtlander are gorgeous and realistic. I love that it teaches about how farmers take care of the land, animals, and equipment they have while not being dry and too factual. Here is a sneak peek inside.

Alaska

Well we made it. With the whole move, then settling in, then everything changing as school let out and summer began, it's been hard to make time to come here and share. However I have been working very hard to manifest my dreams and hopes for my life and future, and one of the things I want to do is create more time to create.

So here I am. Creating. On the beautiful island of Kodiak. I will make the time to share more in the traveling part of our journey, since it did take over a day and we packed a lot into that experience. But this move has been so wonderful. And hard. And fun. And every emotion and feeling in between. It's great for O to have her cousins to play with and learn from, but it's also hard since they are raised and parented differently than how I do. I can definitely see her picking up some bad habits, but also some good ones. And I too have picked up different habits, whether good or bad depends on your perspective, that mainly pertain to parenting. In th…
