Our Halloween Pumpkin

Here she is! Some photos from her daycare party, some from trick-or-treating with friends that night. It took her 3 houses to understand that you don't go IN the person's house!

Well, I've finally caved & started a Blog! There are 3 things that inspired me:

1. My friend Jamie's BRILLIANT blog, my favourite late-night light-reading.

2. My friend Michael's suggestion that it would be a lot easier to share photos & updates than emailing everyone & clogging their inbox with massive downloads.

3. Our 6th wedding anniversary today!! Knowing how fast six years has flown by, I'm hoping a Blog will be a way to try & capture it all. Lofty ambition, yes, but I can try.

Six years ago today Courtney & I were running around Santa Barbara's farmers market buying red roses so that I could go to the Courthouse & marry the neighbour I just met 3 months earlier. Call us crazy (& most people did) but 3pm that day, a glorious October California afternoon, in the most beautiful Courthouse grounds you'll ever find, Jake & I threw caution to the wind and started new lives together.
2008, here I sit typing in our lovely home, in Phoenix of all places, with Abigail asleep in the room next to me & Jake outside tending to his yard. So much has changed in those six years! I can't wait to see what the next six bring ... let's hope I have time to blog it all!
