Life is a swirling, whirling dervish as of late. Things are changing, growing and shifting and there are so many more changes on the horizon. While all of these changes are very positive, it does seem like the seconds on the clock are ticking off way too quickly to be fully present. I haven't been getting the camera out much and now here we are and Cora is two months away from her second...that's right SECOND birthday. Does that officially mean she won't be a baby anymore or has that already happened and I refuse to see it?
Rob changed jobs a few weeks ago after a tenure of over seven years with the same company. This new opportunity has offered him the chance to transition back into the passion that led the two of us together - cycling. He has been working so hard with very little time off for the last few weeks and I am so proud of him. We'll get through this little adjustment period just fine and then I'm sure things will settle down.
And speaking of major life changes, this baby girl is growing so quickly she'll be here before we know it.
So here are snippets that I have managed to capture with the camera in the last few weeks.

Admittedly, a post about an adventure more than 8 weeks after it has happened will be lacking in vivid details. So, for my own remembrances, here's a picture post.
|Taking in the beauty of Jackson Square. I think she is pointing at the green striped awning ahead which is Cafe du Monde. She must have seen all the powdered sugar on the floor as we walked by.|
|A long drive the day before and an iffy night's sleep on the floor of church Sunday school room led to one tuckered out little lady.|
|Ahhh, toes in the sand at last. This beach/island is simply brilliant. It offers a view of the Gulf of Mexico sans all the offshore drilling rigs you'll see to the west. Camping here for a week was wonderful.|
|Exploring historic Ft. Pickens with Dad. We had an amazing view of the Blue Angels practicing from here. When the planes would roar overhead Cora was excited but would also duck down as if they were going to graze the top of her head.|
|Even though we were at the beach, temps were still a little chilly. Nothing like a Grammy-made sweater to keep the cold away.|
|This kiddo has finally taken to wearing sunglasses, although she calls them "cool girl glasses". She had fun lounging with our youth group at the beach and joining in their play.|
|So much to explore with eyes and hands. Right near our campsite were two HUGE heron nests. Watching them swoop in and out was magnificent.|
|NIght after night we got to snuggle with this sweet lady. Pretty soon she is going to need her own sleeping bag.|
|I wish life was this simple all the time....sigh.|
|This is definitely a place everyone should visit. Nothing like a few miles of undeveloped beach and a gentle tide to ground you to the earth.|
