This morning at my home...

Being a working girl again, (I know it's only 20 hours a week, but balancing it with Joy's nursing demands, homeschooling Grace and living in someone else's house is quite taxing!) I am neglecting my blog. Appeciating my "day off" as I am, I decided to capture this memory for posterity.

As I awoke in my newly arranged room this morning, I wanted to allow myself to slow down and be in a quite moment, amidst troubled waters, experience the contentedness of my heart. After enjoying my first cup of Komodo Dragon on the patio this morning, I worked out a eloquent and emotionally touching blog to post as I had a second cup of coffee and took the following photos.

As I sat down with a fresh third cup(!) the baby began stirring, so my pictures will have to speak their thousands of words directly to your unique perspective. Enjoy a slice of life on me! Then take a moment and capture - even if only in mental photos - a moment of your life now. Touch on the things that you treasure.

Home is where the heart is.

A contented heart is quite amidst troubled waters.

ahh thanks for sharing, those were great. I missed seeing you guys on the internet, and we miss seeing you guys in person. I know it hasn't been very long but we got used to seeing you guys weekly and well we're weird that way. I like that garden nook where you sipped your coffee. I was just outside watching a dove sitting next to the chimes hanging from one of our palm trees. I was thinking about what a great moment it was, that very moment being able to feel the sun outside, watch the dove, a few butterflies fly by. You are very right to notice the moments we are in because they can be fleeting and sometimes we just have to sit back, enjoy and have that third cup.

Hi Tiffany--

i found your blog while searching for Southern California Moms, and I was hoping that you might be interested in joining our public service campaign to raise Disaster Preparedness Awareness among Southern California families.

My name is Victoria and I’m with Rocket XL, a marketing agency based in Los Angeles. The State of California has asked us to help them identify around 50 leading independent voices in the SoCal online community to become part of this emergency preparedness pilot program. We'd love if if you could share your views and opinions about this program with your readers through your blog.

To learn more about this program, please visit this site:

As a gesture of thanks for your involvement and to kick-start your own family preparedness plan, we would like to send you a FREE survival kit (a.k.a. "Bug-Out Bag"). Please let me know if you’re interested and would like to get involved. We would love to have your voice included and I look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks and take care,
Rocket XL
