Hello out there, that is if anyone is out there. I was sitting here trying to decide when to post this and then thought, why not now? After a really long break from blogging I am finally ready to get back to the thing that I love/loved so much. I'm sure I will eventually talk about why I stopped (it's not a very exciting story) as well as why I'm back but thinking about doing that as a first post has kept me away even longer.

What I will say right now is that I'm back to blogging for me. More than anything, I miss having something to look back on to remind me of what was going on in my life at any given time.

With that said, here's what was up on this particular day. It was my birthday on May 26th so we went out for dinner with my dad and stepmom at a restaurant in Westdale called Rawlicious. If you check it out I highly recommend the dang quesadillas. Since the restaurant is right near McMaster University where Ivan and I went to school we went for a walk around our old campus. We both agreed that it was really weird and cool to be walking around there with Milo. It just made us think about our time going to school there and how different our lives are now. Everything looked so beautiful and the sun starting to set was making things extra pretty so I got the urge to take some outfit photos. That's a normal urge, right?

Taking outfit photos with Milo around is kind of hit or miss. Sometimes he is very happy entertaining himself but this was not one of those times. After struggling to get a few shots while having focus issues with the camera and getting more and more frustrated (can you tell how pissed I look in that first photo?) I just told Ivan to forget it. Milo had been talking about a bumblebee so I got down with him to watch it visiting some flowers. Ivan decided to keep snapping photos and ended up getting a whole bunch that I loved. Not what we had planned but a whole lot less stressful and more natural.

I think that's a good representation of what I would like my blog to be. A completely natural account of our life. Nothing forced, no pressure, just capturing the moments that we want to remember.


PS. Please excuse the mess on the page. If I wait to post until everything is perfect, I may never begin.
