December 31st was Avonlea's 1st birthday. Party pictures are still forthcoming (our camera wasn't working at the time). Meanwhile I thought I'd show photos of Avonlea from each month of her life.

Photo sessions have become a regular thing (I think most parents can relate) and it was hard to pass over so many other photos I just adore of her. Maybe I'll find an excuse to post a big collage at some point.
Hi! I'm a writer with a middle grade fantasy novel called Jules and the Djinn Master. I freelance write and am a frequent contributor to North End Metro, a regional lifestyle magazine, and I blog with other awesome middle grade authors at Project Mayhem. When I'm not writing, I chase my two- and four-year-olds around, teach college-prep composition to high school seniors, and get super distracted with old-school domestic projects like testing recipes, gardening, and sewing. You know, because I obviously need more stuff to do.
