Monday monday

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life|Photography

Sarah’s birthday weekend is officially over. Phew. Things are finally back to normal around here. I had coffee with Dani and Lucas this morning.

What a great way to kick off the week eh?

Look at her, isn’t she gorgeous? She JUST HAD A BABY PEOPLE.

 Dani and Lucas

Lucas was a perfect dream baby. Here he is, just barely tolerating me and my camera.


Would ya look at this handsome little guy? I think he liked me. (Or at least I hope he did, because I sure liked him.)

Oh Andrea, you’re so sweet, and these are lovely photos! Thanks for this, and for not mocking neither my addled-brain conversation fragments nor my ungraceful attempt to nurse discreetly in public. It was so much fun seeing you today, the beginning of a stellar day.

“not mocking neither”? Ugh. Apparently, my comments are as addled as my conversation. Eep!

[…] It’s on days like these that I truly love my one-year sabbatical in SAHM-land. I started the day with a coffee date with Andrea, who gets sweeter every time we meet. She took the most gorgeous photos of Lucas… I stole this one, but you should pop on over to her site to take a look at the rest, and I’ll wait for you to get back. […]

I poked my screen trying to stick my finger in her dimple.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
