Welcome to the new Chalk White Arrow. As you may be able to tell, a lot of changes have taken place over here. There are still tweaks to be made and a few things that need changing … At this point in time, life is seeming to take longer than I plan for, but I appreciate you all being patient with me. Starting Monday, things will be getting more consistent around here. My goal is to get at least two posts up a week and possibly increase post frequency a little as we go along. A big THANK YOU to all of you who have stuck around … to those who have remained loyal readers, who send me kind words, who have always been supportive … This blog remains because of you.

Until then, you can find me on Instagram

All I need to say here, is that holidays are like a million times more fun when you get yourself a kid. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Also, I think our Easter mistakenly thought it was actually Christmas … at least Juder’s mom must have thought it was anyway. Oops … live and learn!

i’m sorry for the quiet absence over the past little bit … i’ve been having problems with my camera uploading photos onto our computer. more importantly however, i’ve been spending a lot of my time comforting baby jude, who has been dealing with chronic acid reflux. i wanted to thank those of you who gave me such great tips and ideas on instagram. with the combination of giving him a lactose-free formula a few times a day, as well as visiting a chiropractor once a week, his reflux seems to have been settling down a lot, which … needless to say, makes all three of us a lot happier. i have a few posts planned and with the calming of jude’s poor tummy, hopefully this little space will stay a bit more active. thank you all for being patient with me 🙂
