{ Welcome }

This blog was created out of my love of photography, my need to rehash and sort the moments of life via written words, my desire to connect with other parents and my commitment to living, telling and seeking the truth. 


So, WELCOME to 


[ PINECONES and PINEAPPLES ]


The things I desire for this blog to be about: naturally, with me as the author it will be about my life via my perspective (sorry!); it will be about the good, the bad, the truth; it will be a way for me to share the little things, the daily things, the MOMENTS, with my friends and family; and it will be a way for me to put into “print” the things of my life that bring me joy and inspiration , enlightment or a chance to grow -- for purpose of documenting, learning, journaling, sharing, and reliving.  And maybe, just maybe, as I write about my truths, they will find host in someone else who then can share their version of that truth with another {2013}.  

5/17: Here I am four years later, and I’m not quite sure what to make of this space anymore.  I feel a shift occurring, taking me away from the “mom-blog” mentality.  Maybe it’s because I feel like I have more “space” in parenting, I have more time to process what is going on, and less of a need to write from a place of “What the heck? Why is this so hard? Can anyone hear me?”, and yet I wouldn’t want anyone to assume that this means that I think I have it all figured out.  I was feeling somewhat irritated reading back on my posts … I felt worried that the intent for this blog could be misunderstood.  That my intention of reaching out by telling my truths could come across as self-serving…that in the rhythm of trial and error in parenting, and in sharing my accidental successes meant that the successes happened more often than the failures.  Thus a little discord occurred, and so I am trying to take time needed to figure out how change, evolution, and truth can still relate to one another in a way worth sharing.
