I have embraced RAW.
I photographed sunflowers and daisies, my favorites.
I hung some photos on my wall.
I made a quilt.

We bought big kid more cribs or changing tables.
I planted a vegetable garden and ate lots of yummy BLTs.
I planted several herbs and made delicious batches of pesto.
We built a playset and spent lots of time outside.
I bought a treadmill and a Wii Fit.
I exercised sporadically.
I fell in love with good German food.
I fell in love with good German beer.
We budgeted our money successfully (until the holidays) and found that it's not so hard.
We bought a minivan...the most glorious vehicle known to man.

I loved reading that list. I wish for you to blog more!

And I know NOTHING about RAW. I need to learn. I'm just worried its going to take too much time to edit etc.
