Been sort of MIA recently due to vacation, packing and sudden illness.  We are moving tomorrow and won't be re-connected to the world for about a week - see you then!

I married my Dad

Got this (very sweet) Mother's Day card in the mail today from my Mom and Dad. Not sure I deserved it, after all the years of shirking card responsibility myself, but nonetheless it was appreciated. I hope I can live up to my parents' image of how great a Mom they think I am - at least I had a good example. The humorous part is of course how my Mom addressed the envelope. As she wrote she was probably remembering me reprimanding her for addressing things to "Mr. and Mrs. Jan Schröder" and how I threatened not to open them if they came that way (although, maybe I only made that threat in head?). I thought the mistake was cute, and this is not a way to publicly "call her out" - it just maybe shows how it isn't so easy to let go, even after all these years.  I am starting to understand why.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom. Looking forward to seeing you Saturday.

Never in a million years did I ever actually allow myself to hope for two babies.  Now I am well on my way to being a mother of two (under two!).  Mother's Day is a day of gratitude.

Pasta! Pasta! Pasta!

It's safe to say we won't be serving the Piccolini to guests.  :)

Photo Editing Software

Hello Blog Followers (all 3 of you ;) ),

I am considering purchasing some photo editing software, e.g. Photoshop Elements or Lightroom.  I'd (maybe) love to have Photoshop CS5 - if I found time to figure it out, but the $700 price tag is a bit hefty for my purposes.  (I could save up for it if someone had some convincing arguements).  My question is what would you recommend for my baby photographing needs - thoughts?
