hello little bird

admin 2 comments

A few days ago I spent a good part of a day hearing a bird singing and walking to my window, pulling aside the curtain only  to NOT see any bird there… then finally I left the curtains open and I discovered I have a new friend!


he / she spends the day on my windowsill singing away … and peeking into the house


My pictures are not the best , as my windows are a tad dirty ( with 2 dogs and three kids) , and if I move too much my little friend flies away.


but I  am totally loving the company 🙂


even in the pouring rain my little friend was there

On another note, I have another little friend coming to visit me this week… I am meeting my niece for the first time!!! I am so excited … and I get to see my brother, my sister in law and my nephew… my kids have no idea they are coming and will absolutely freak out tonight when they see their cousins!

oh and my husband was on a cookie roll this past weekend! mummmmm

hi and welcome

I am so excited you are here!

I have been wanting to start a blog for a long time … and well here I am; and here you are!


Okay, so what’s this blog about ?… Well, it’s about life … and right NOW, my life, revolves around being a mom, homeschooling, following a vegetarian organic lifestyle, living as naturally as possible and photography,  capturing those moments in my ‘vita’.  All these ‘tags’ are so much more then just tags… for example  homeschooling encompasses parenting and coaching and so many other ‘tags’ that come along with the territory.

I like connecting with like minded people.  I also want to do something creative for myself while making new friends and so came the birth of this blog. Through this blog I hope to motivate you ( and keep myself motivated)  to be more conscientious of the food and lifestyle choices you make,  and I hope to improve my picture taking skills with practice  🙂

So let me start this first blog post with a little about myself …

If you haven’t already you can go see some random things about me 

I am a stay at home mom to 3 great kids. They are 7, 5 and 2 years old. we decided very early on to try the homeschool route and so far, so good. (Will tell you all about my homeschooling journey in a post coming very soon … will also share a typical day in our homeschooling life ).

I have been a vegetarian for most of my life… and thrive to be vegan in my lifestyle as much as possible. We do still eat eggs and some  members of the family enjoy dairy products sometimes ,     but being vegetarian / vegan is not just about diet , but also about lifestyle, and so I am a very compassionate shopper… although it can be very challenging at times … but I do like the  leaping bunny seal .


Which brings me to my next point… I have an infatuation towards dolphins and elephants.  They are incredibly intelligent animals that sadly are being harmed and captured. I am extremely opposed to any kind of circus that includes any animals and despise zoos. There are alternatives to seeing animals, such as sanctuaries, such as this elephant sanctuary or PAWS as well as some others, that I will post another time. But animals are NOT here for our entertainment.

We have 2 very sweet and crazy golden retriever dogs, who are 10 going on 2. Which I am sure you will see lots of pictures of .

this is the pups when they were just a few months old , they are inseparable  and oh so sweet 

I am very lucky to have an amazing husband who happens to be an awesome cook, and yes he does most of the baking and cooking when he is home…(oh, who am I kidding, he does all the cooking and baking when he is home and sometimes even makes stuff for us to just warm up when he isn’t home ) told you I was lucky 😉  I will share some of his delicious creations that are mouth watering as well as mostly vegan 🙂

                         our special day

so I do hope you will come back and check out the next blog post !

see you next time


please stay with me while I set this blog up

wow… not sure what I have thrown myself into … I was on blogspot and it was so simple… but wanted a more personalized feeling… and so I have entered the wordpress world… and just getting this blog to look the way I want seems to be taking me forever.
