It's been a long while since I've written anything. About 6 months to be exact. That's also just how far along I am with my pregnancy...

This is our second child, and although I am so very thrilled and excited to be having another baby, I am absolutely hating being pregnant. I didn't like it the first time around, and I am not liking it now. In fact, it took me quite a lot of self-conviencing to bring myself to that point of being ready to get pregnant again.

I know there are a lot of women out there who LOVE being pregnant, and have woderful things to say about that whole experiance. I can't relate to them at all. Throughout my first pregnancy, as in this present one, I've experianced almost every symptom and discomfort in the book, starting with the ever so popular nausea (& vomitting) and heart-burns, to the less known ones like constant bitter taste in your mouth, itching, a...

I love the spring! It has always been my favorite time of the year. I've never been a fan of the cold, so Fall & Winter are out, and since we live in Israel, summer is just a bit to the extreme in terms of warmth... so I have my spring :)

Besides all the many reasons I can point out for why spring's so great, the best one is that it's the ultimate time for being outdoors. Everything smells so good, everything looks so colorful and bright, and the air is just crisp & clean.

A couple of weeks ago we went on a family trip, the traditional yearly trip that my someone's family likes to do. His parents like to plan those trips with a lot of hash-hash around them, keeping most of the trip's details a secret till the very end. Being a control-freak that I am, you can imagine how much that drives me crazy, but I've learned to deal with it...

These trips used to be in all difficulty levels...

About a second after I've written my last post, tapping myself on the shoulder with joy, and announcing that I'm doing pretty well as a mom, life decided to challenge me. It came in the form of Noam catching some viral disease that has caught my someone & I completely off guard. I'll spare you all the details, and just say that in the first 24 hours of Noam getting sick we've went through multiple times of throwing up, then a really bad case of dehydration, which resulted in all three of us spending several hours at the all-night clinic & Noam getting an IV for 4 hours. After that it took my little man about a week to slowly get back to his normal, hyper, happy self.

He's been sick before that time and after that time too (he just spent most of this past week at home with me cause he was so-so), but in all of those other times he was always "himself". I mean he might have b...

I've wanted to be a mom for the longest time. I was sort of ready for it years before I found the right guy to complete the picture and be the dad in the equation. I wrote "sort of ready" because in my early to late 20's my readiness was more in thought, but I guess I never really stopped to think about everything that being a mom entails, because if I had I'd probably come to the conclusion that I'm not so ready...

When I was pregnant with Noam I used to day dream about being a mom, fantasizing what it would be like, what kind of a mother I would be, would I be any good at it. towards the end of my term I think I was somewhat freaking out that perhaps I wouldn't be a good mom, I wouldn't know what to do, I won't be able to juggle everything, and I will be the worst mom ever. I'm sure that happens to many first-time-moms...

Although my someone and I are kind of laid back as firs...

For as long as I can remember I have been a person who shares. Even as a little girl I'd share my adventures, my everyday life stories, my feelings, with anyone who would listen.

Everyone who knows me or has followed me online can see that I am very open. I kept a personal blog in the past, as I'm doing now again, I have a facebook profile that I keep updating with stories & photos of my life, I've shared some of my personal stories on other blogs & e-magazines (such as my sons birth story and my wedding story), and I've always been ok with that. More than ok, I never thought twice about it. Because again, for me, sharing is more like second nature.

My someone, Shay, the man by my side, has never questioned it either. From the moment he entered my life I guess he knew that his life would also be exposed. His family has joked in the past on how before I became part of that fa...

I guess I have to start with a little history and background...

Where do I begin? 

I'm 36. I've been a photographer for 11 years, since 2003, when I finished my 4 years of photography studying. Back then I lived in Los Angeles. How I got there is a whole other story, and it was too long ago to even get in to it. In any case, I was living in L.A.

I finished my studies with a portfolio of product photography and a very optimistic wish to become the house photographer for Nike or Coca-Cola or companies alike...

Wishes aside, reality had different options for me... As a non-American I wasn't able to work as a freelance photographer. I was frustrated. After months of debating my options (and searching for my American prince charming that will marry me and make me an American too), I've decided to move to Vancouver, Canada. See I was lucky enough to have been born in Canada, and so ther...

Hello... again

 

It's been a while since I've maintained a blog... I guess I am a bit rustic

Once upon a time, when I was still Schiffer (my maiden name), I used to write a blog. I loved it. I loved the fact that I had an outlet for my thoughts. I was also in a different place in my life and besides the fact that maintaining that blog inspired me and kept me motivated, I had much more time on my hands, and well, keeping a blog demands time...

So here I go again, giving it another go.
