Flock Together Blog Hop 1/31

This week's "Fine Feathered Friend" and guest host is
Brooke at Blueberry Squash.

 I am currently a photographer, but my first love was history. I earned my first college degree in history back in 2002, and took away a lifetime love of reading, research, and learning. Everything I do in life is researched, and having a child is the biggest milestone in my life so far so extra work has gone into the planning, and will continue into the future as life progresses.I found myself with notebooks, and documents full of notes as I discovered all the things involved in becoming a parent and thought I would create a place to share them with other people out there looking for information.  From that idea this blog was born. This blog serves as my fun project to share what I find and a colorful bookmark list that I use often to revisit research done in the past. 

I first met Brooke through her Cupcakes and Cucumbers blog, which was named a Fine Feathered Friend in the  early days of Flock Together. Her photographs are beautiful and interesting, but the stories behind them are moreso! It thrilled me to find out that she's having a baby, and the concept behind this blog is quite innovative. I hope you'll follow her blog and this research project!
