Because Simple Is Always Better
Meet PaulaRead The Blog


I love taking pictures; especially of my kids.  I’ve taken over 100,000 photos, and learned a few things in the process (mostly through trial and error).  I share some pictures and some tips here.


I love to read (when I can find the time).  I always have one on my Kindle and a real book on my bedside table.  When I find a good book, I love to share it.  So many books, so little time to read them.

I’m still a kid at heart.  Now that I have two kids of my own, I get to play with their toys.  I share some of my thoughts about the best fun toys here.
