How Do You Feel?

Duke loves this little skateboard and had just pushed it across the pavement with one hand while crawling with the other hand. He felt quite proud of himself. We are having lots of fun and I hope you feel great, too!

Introducing Baby Duke

Duke Everest Watson
almost 6 months old

Hello hello! I truly have missed you all and I wish I would have announced that I was on maternity leave from the blog...I just kept thinking I might post here and there but as it turns out I just kept taking a big break from the computer. I also feel like having this space to write is synonymous with reading so much of what you write - and I did not have that capacity any longer so it almost didn't seem fair for me to blather on knowing I would not also have the chance to read what is going on with all of you.

Anyhoo enough about me, how about that adorable little face staring at you? Gosh he will be 6 months old in just a few days. His name is Duke Everest Watson. I just love him so much I can't even tell you. I am having so much fun being a mom. We took Duke to Santa Cruz for his first time last week and dipped his little toes in the water. He felt it was a little cold for his liking.

I can't wait to slowly but surely get back in touch and tell you more about Duke and art, surfing and people, life and health, love and nature, interviews and goofing off...gosh all that good stuff.

Thank you for sticking around.

Surf Fridays!

Greetings from a lovely land. Waikiki in 1932.

A family member gave me this postcard that belonged to their great grandparents. There is not one day that goes by that I don't think of the Hawaiian islands. I imagine we'll take the baby there next summer. Until then...

Have a wonderful weekend, filled with Aloha.

A Joyous New Year!

These are some wonderful musicians, Nicki and Tim Bluhm. Nicki Bluhm has a new album called Driftwood, coming out very soon and this song will be on it. It's called Stick With Me and they are singing beautiful harmonies with the Golden Gate Bridge as their backdrop. "I don't wanna hear doubts I wanna hear shouts of victory"! Also, please check out Nicki's blog about all things backcountry. It'll make you want to get out there, explore and climb a mountain.

Tim plays with The Mother Hips, a band that I've been a big fan of for many years. I wanted to share this happy tune with you because with the impending birth of the Watson baby, I've been thinking so much of joy. I realized that joy could be the very greatest gift I could give to our son. So I am seeking it out each and every day.

Speaking of which, he is due any day now! Officially towards the end of this month, but maybe he wants to come early. I will definitely post a pic and share the good news once that happens.

I hope you are having a wonderful start to your year - I bet you are, you little rascals!

p.s. Thanks Seamouse!
