We have Moved

Come and visit the new site, Bumbles & Light.

Monday Sun

It's been dreary most of the days so far here in England, with a smattering of sunshine here and there and a strong, cold wind. I've been trying to get out and take photographs while the sun shines, but the wind makes it difficult to do macros of flowers. They get blown around and it's hard to get a sharp image.

Today though there has been little to no wind, fantastic! Mikey and I headed right outside for photographs.

Although the boy got bored quickly.

He was getting cranky and ready for a nap, so I took him inside and put him to bed. I went back out for more photographs once he was sleeping soundly.

Tomorrow Mikey's Great Grandma is coming to visit for a week. The house is going to be packed, there haven't been this many people here for a long time.

I am a 24 year old British stay at home mother to a two year old boy. Married to a U.S. soldier and currently living in Germany.

I have seen the Vatican from the very top of St Peter's Basilica, the mud in the World War I trenches outside Ypres. I have walked through Montmartre side streets bustling with people in the evening, gotten lost in the streets of Greenwich Village NYC, run through cornfields on the Welsh border and sat outside with a cup of tea watching fireflies in the fields of the outer Chicago suburbs.

I have held the hands of others through addiction, fear, suicide, despair and come out the other side. I have left everything behind to begin anew.
I have fought mental illness and walked through snow in the mountains of the lake district, England. I have explored the morgue in the bowels of an abandoned hospital on a summer evening, climbed to the top of scaffolding on the outside of a five floor warehouse to look at the city lights of Nottingham at night and I have watched the sun setting on the Texas horizon.

I have held my son's tiny hand through the plastic window on an isolette in the NICU ward. Walked, speaking only in whispers, through the catacombs beneath the ground on the outskirts of Rome and seen the fireworks over Heidelberg castle.
