A long overdue return...

Description of Photo
Well, here I am. Vegetable soup bubbling on the stove, wind blowing in the leaves outside, clothes dryer spinning, day-time TV playing and fingernails tapping on the keys. Oh and a newborn baby laying on my lap! Although I have a totally legitimate excuse, my return to the blogosphere is well overdue. And the absence has been killing me! Each week that passes by I look longingly to my laptop and promise to find the time, but each week time just hasn't been generous... I guess that is to be expected with a busy toddler and a new little bundle.

There is so very much I am itching to write about and my blog 'notes' are currently out of control. I am planning to share with you many things including; our survival of the newborn weeks, the juggling of two children, the multitude of health issues that have frustratingly plagued me recently, post-partum emotions, a new tattoo, new family life and of course a birth story!

Until I squeeze in the time to do so, I thought I should introduce this sweet little being...

This is Isla Willow.

Plenty of  love,
