Blog Hop 2010

Thanks to Robin at Pensieve, we bloggers have a chance to network from the comfort of our home and make new blogging friends.  Fun!

So, about me and my name is Tami and I am a stay-at-home mom to 2 awesome kids:  Csaba (6), and Emersen (2).  My husband, Tom, owns his own home inspection business and we will celebrate our 5th anniversary this November.

Let me bullet-point the stuff I like to talk about on my blog: 

:: Adoption - we adopted our son from Hungary in Nov. '07 (which clarifies the fact that I have a 6yo son and have been married for 5 years, ahem).  I am passionate about orphans world-wide getting forever families! 

:: Photography - I love taking pictures even though I am a complete amateur!  I also fiddle and play around in photoshop to give face-lifts to my blog and photos. 

:: Cake Decorating - This is also a newly acquired skill that I am honing.  You can see my first fondant-covered creation here...but don't look too closely! :) 

:: My Kids - self-explanatory, but we do have interesting days around here! 

:: Christianity - I am a Christian who seeks to serve God with everything I have.  Sometimes I get on my soapbox about current events or just like to ruminate on goings-on, but it's usually tame and more for encouragement/insight.

That's it in a nutshell.  Thanks for reading and drop by anytime (and when you do so, please let me know by leaving a comment so I can visit your blog too)!
Happy blogging! :o)
