bc - before children

This is a retrospective of my time when I was 28, long before I had kids. Life was very different. I am grateful to be a Mom now, just taking a different look back. This was for one of the challenges in my NWR class by Jessica Spraque.

Snow Fun

Snow fun is a rare chance in Florida. In January we had fun playing in a pile of imported "snow."

Mother's Day

Last spring we went to the Village in Keystone Heights for Mother's Day. We enjoyed a delicious meal and just plain fun. This is my week 3 LO for my NWR class with Jessica Sprague.

Last Summer we had an incredible vacation in Bar Harbor. We cycled the Acadia National Forest carriage road and had a delicious lunch at the the Jordan Pond restaurant. My son enjoyed exploring the shoreline of Jordan Pond while my DH took photos.

I created this LO for my week 1 assignment in Jessica Sprague's' "Now We're Rockin'" class. It was awesome. I am so glad I took her class.
