Montage Monday – Gemini May 31, 2010

When I think of June I can’t help but think of my Gemini friend & daughter. Wow they are engaging, fun, and e-x-h-a-u-s-t-i-n-g, and I say that with love. I remember reading somewhere once that you can only have one Gemini in your life, I have more than one.

I was going to give you an explanation of the character traits of a Gemini, but decided against it. Instead I’ll just share a small paragraph I read on Mystical Blaze about Gemini children. It was like reading a report card on my little girl:

“For those with a Gemini child,  get ready for a ride!  These kids can be sweet, cooperative little angels one moment and infuriating monsters the next.  Gemini children are very verbal and soak information in like sponges.  They therefore tend to master the art of communication quite early, often displaying knowledge beyond their years.  This is a high-strung child with a lot of pent-up energy, so don’t be surprised if your 6-year-old Gemini claims to have “tension headaches” or other physical complaints beyond his years”

Here are some Gemini inspired indies for your viewing pleasure:

CiC Team Saturday – Chocolate! May 29, 2010

Good Morning World!  As you read this I’m probably already out of the house at my first ever soccer game.  My little girl is almost 4 years old and can finally start playing. Her daddy (Mr. BoutiqueKarma) is the volunteer coach for this mini team and their team color is Chocolate (we’ll be calling them the Chipits).

So in my daughter’s honor today’s CiC team Saturday theme is Chocolate (and everything that goes with it).

Montage Monday – Budding Beauty April 26, 2010

Ah, Monday, another week beginning. This is the first day of my week, 5 more days until the next weekend, 5 more days until another month.

I remember growing up and my mother telling me ‘time will go so fast when you get older, take your time growing up.’ Was she ever right! I can’t believe that winter already past and that spring is here and the leaves are quickly budding on all the tress and my magnolia which I planted last fall already has a few flowers about to open. Before I know it I will be practically copying this posting to tell you how I can’t believe it is snowing already. I know what you are thinking right now.. shhhhh Tara… don’t jinx it. So, without further ado, here’s my ode to the budding beauty of Spring.
