pardon my french.

i can't believe how quickly summer is flying by.
in less than two weeks, the minis will be back in school, and we'll have a whole new schedule to adjust to with mini-he in kindergarten. meaning, i'll actually have to get him to school on time. while we haven't been to the beach as often as i'd hoped, we seem to be doing a lot of evening activities like tennis and
8 pm swims in the heated pools. i'm liking the idea of still having fun, but without the hot sun.

in my attempts to familiarize myself with wordpress, i started a simple photography blog posting a photo (or two) a day. i love to take pictures, so it'll be a great place to share my non-fashion-related photos and learn the platform at the same time. i have no plans to switch this blog over, just curious. my initial thoughts on wordpress? a little confusing and not as user friendly
as blogger.

if you use wordpress, tell me your thoughts on the pros and cons, especially if you've used blogger before. and if you leave your email address, i might have some questions for you.

and lastly, if you're interested, you can

  1. What a funny shirt. And the skirt is cute, too. Adjusting to kindergarden will be hard for the both of you at first, but then you'll adapt and find yourself with more free time.

  9. Congrats on your new photography blog. I checked it out and it's marvelous. I'm on wordpress but I have never been on blogger. So I can't tell you any differences. Adorable look. The sweater is super cute. Wish you a wonderful Friday.

  12. I've been seriously considering a switch to Wordpress, I made a mistake by enabling the Google+ comments (awful decision and I can't find an easy way to remove that option). And yes, literally a week until the first day of Kindergarden and the schedule adjustment is going to be brutal. Ugh.

  15. Becks, that sweater is too cute! I love it girl! Also love that skirt. I keep hearing the same thing about WordPress. That's why I'm staying put. I have enough to figure out already. LOL I'm glad you are following your passion. That is so good.

  19. Gorgeous look! I can't believe the summer is almost over. I've always heard that wordpress was better than blogger, but I'm used to blogger and I like it so no real complaints. I do like your photography on the other blog though.

  24. I love the looks. As for Blogger vs. Wordpress.. I attempted a switch of my other blog "Mommy Hearts Coffe" to wp from blogger, and after a horrible flop, and dislike of having to pay for all of the useful widgets, and whatnot, i found myself back on blogger and attempting to make a new blog "Hipster and Cookies" http://www.hipsterandcookies.blogspot.com
