this year’s favorite reads: toddler edition

Around here, when we find a book we love, it gets requested over & over & over & over, until Mom/Dad can’t take it anymore.  Overheard last night:  “What should we read tonight?’  SPEEDSTER COLIN!  ‘But we’ve read that every single night this week… pick something else.’  SPEEDSTER COLIN! At least the kids have a...

this year’s favorite reads: toddler edition

My two-year-old loves books.  I suspect he gets it from me [we established earlier this week that I read a lot of books] because his Dad mostly reads a lot of sports scores… and work email.  But every night before bed, the two of them settle into our big gliding chair and read bedtime stories. This...

life right now [june]

currently… catching up on life after an amazing week on the Olympic Peninsula with John’s college friends.  It was really fun to explore more of this part of the country- LOVED it!  [photo above taken in Long Beach where we rented a house] loving my garden [still].  I think the neighbors heard me exclaim ‘JOHN… THERE’S A TOMATO!!!...

life right now [may]

loving the new garden bed that John built me for Mother’s Day!  [photos above of Colin inspecting the work prior to adding rocks/dirt.] planning what to plant in the new space, thanks to the nifty garden planner on smartgardener.com! seeing Colin WALKING ON HIS OWN!  He is so proud of himself, but I’m even prouder.  [this video was last week...

my top five newborn essentials

Earlier this month, Colin’s 12-month sized pants started looking more like manpris.  As I was transferring them into the storage tote of baby clothes, I couldn’t help but take out all of his itty-bitty newborn things.  The outfit he wore home from the hospital… so tiny.  The swaddlers that used to snuggle him so tightly...

filling the space

A completely blank screen stares at me after I click ‘Add New Post.’  I can fill the space with anything I choose because it’s my own space.  It’s not entirely different than a journal.  Except, unlike a piece of paper, this post can be viewed by anyone, anywhere. The internet is pretty cool.  I connect...

our finished family yearbook

It’s here!  Our 2013 family yearbook!  I know I’ve already shared many of the digital pages, but there’s something different about holding the final, printed book in hand. For those of you who are already Project Lifers and contemplating switching to the digital version, here are my thoughts: PRO:  No hassling with printing photos. PRO:...

being more present: clearing the clutter

When I wrote out my goals for the new year, there was a very obvious theme that permeated through all aspects of my life.  Create boundaries for technology.  Set down the iPhone and social media.  And be more present. After setting the personal goal to ‘be more present’ this year, I scoured the internet for resources...

setting goals for the new year

We gathered in the conference room.  Another day packed with meetings.  As I fidgeted to get settled at the table, our manager walked in with a huge piece of paper and stuck it on the wall.  The team looked up eagerly.  She had scheduled this meeting weeks ago, but the agenda was still unknown. The...

merry christmas!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Miss Freddy and family! This is my final post of the year, as I will be taking a holiday break to spend some time with these wonderful boys right here.  I hope you do the same [but find your own boys, please]. [photo credit: Neyssa...

this year’s favorite reads: baby edition

Occasionally, after I finish reading Colin his bedtime story, I set it down and think “what the… WHAT was this author ON while writing this book?” There are some strange ones out there, for sure.  If you ask me, one of the biggest offenders is Goodnight Moon.  This childhood classic is filled with creepy artwork...

one year old

Colin, It’s time for a celebration!  You are ONE YEAR OLD.  This a huge milestone for you, little guy, but it’s also a big milestone for your momma.  It means that we did it. You were patient with me as I learned how to care for a newborn and as I learned what it meant...

gift guide for a clutter-free christmas!

It’s no secret that we don’t have a lot of space.  I think the builders of our townhome were high [well, it IS legal here] when they designed the closets in our unit.  Our bedroom closet, that I share with my husband, is hardly big enough for one person.  And don’t get me started on...

life before baby

“I’m sorry, you have to be 21 to come inside.” I’d walked past this restaurant in our neighborhood daily.  It looked wonderful and I couldn’t wait to try it out.  I decided to treat myself to lunch there. “Oh, that’s sweet of you, but I’m 30.” “No, the baby.  He can’t come in.” “Uhhhh… but...

HI, I’M MISS FREDDY.

 

Actually, my name is Casey. As a newborn I resembled Fred Flintstone so my parents nicknamed me Freddy and it stuck. I am a professional photo organizer (yes, that's a thing!) who helps people all over the world make sense of their photo mess through organizing services and self-paced online courses.

 

I want to help you ENJOY your photos again!
