around me

Not straying very far from the nest these days I am noticing the detail of what's around me more and more. Small walks around the marina make me appreciate this little dead end of water we live on, and the beauty in the details that we normally rush by on our way to this and that outing for the day.
The natural beauty is a given, but lately I am struck by the rough aesthetic of this little nautical neighborhood as well.

Thank you to everyone for the kind words and encouragement lately. Things may be off and on around here until show time. My mind and body are in a weird place at the moment. But... I will keep you posted.

We only live aboard for part of the year, but I am constantly struck by the beauty to be found in everyday things around us when you are near boats, water, fish and everything related to these things. Hang in there - every mother of us knows exactly what you are going through. Hugs ~chris

I have to agree that there is definately a unique kind of beauty surrounding marine life. I would echo mudmaven's thoughts by saying those who have been through it definately understand about taking time just for you :) Thoughts are very etheral during pregnancy...and really during motherhood in general in my opnion! Enjoy :D

beautiful photos.

i am of course sending lots of love and labor vibes to you but have to admit that there is a part of me (a very selfish part) that wants you to be pregnant a just little longer so i can soak up your words and images and savor the world through your heightened senses.

absolutely beautiful my friend!

Stunning photos. That second to the last one is my favorite. Haunting colors. Soon we'll be reading your baby girl's birth story!
