goodbye hello

Well, dear blogging friends, to make this totally dramatic: this is the end and it is the beginning.

I will (most likely) not be blogging here any longer.

I will definitely be keeping this blog since I use it often as my personal recipe rolodex, plus it contains so much history that I don't have recorded anywhere else. I may make it private eventually. Not sure.

BUT, the good news: I have started a new blog with a dear old friend (she's not old, but we have been friends for a long time). Her name is Katie and she is a new mom and she lives in Canada and I am really excited about our new blog together.

Check it out:

Thanks for reading. I hope to see you at the new blog spot.

Oh, Hi! Remember me? I am currently seated on the couch next to a passed-out little dude covered in layers of blankets with Tiggy and Mickey on his lap. Poor guy has the stomach flu. As in, the same illness that Elle was inflicted with only last week.

Thus, the blogging has been non-existent. However, there are exciting new projects brewing up in BlogWorld that I cannot wait to share with you. Hopefully I will have more news soon, but, until then, I will leave you with some photos taken by a guest photographer while at the Zoo, long before the Stomach Bug of 2013 came to live with us...

Our feet, and a clue as to who the mystery photographer could be...

The Zoo is already getting ready for Zoo Lights! (Note lights on tree above) I'm SO excited!

He put a bird in this shot to try to make it artsy... what a little Portlander.

... if you haven't guessed yet, it's this guy:


... anyway, Happy Sunday everyone! Have a great week!
