Building Blocks Foundation was started at the beginning of 2010 by a 22 year old from Iowa. Ashley Melchert (the founder) began working at a facility that houses and cares for individuals with disabilities, and this soon became her mission in life - to make sure these individuals recieved the best possible care no matter what it took.
Building Blocks was formed to complete this mission. The foundation is just beginning, so there is a lot to be done yet. However, the photo campaign to… Continue

Immigration Enforcement. Both my husband and I are citizens of the U.S, but we are NOT with the new law at all. We are
both extremely mad that there is now a law aganist us Latinos. Not all Latinos across the United States and Arizona are drug
dealers, murders, ect... ect.... and by having this law they are going to just see the color of of skin,… Continue

It all started last week, my dad had to get an MRI of his lower back because he has a narrowing of the spine. He is 71 years old, so at this point they really won't do surgery to help him out. In the MRI, they found a tumor on his kidney, which we go through a cancer scare with him at least once a year. They have all been benign so far, but this one his about as big as an orange and they are doing more tests than they ever have which can't be a good thing. So, that was a shock and we are hoping… Continue

Okay, it's Friday...time for a stroll down memory lane. How much did you love Capri Sun? That package was so unique, the flavors mouth watering and those yellow straws, unforgettable! And who could forget those delicious cookies, Dunkaroos? Each came in a package with frosting and you could dip each cookie into vanilla or chocolate frosting...those were a dream. TAB and Fun Dip two other absolute must haves.
What was your favorite 80's snack or… Continue

For the past four years I have been taking my kids around the neighborhood we live in to pick up trash on the side of the road and in yards.
The first year it took a little time to get the kids to enjoy it - but now they see how much just a little effort can make a difference!

Happy Earth Day to everyone! I love Earth Day because it is a chance for us to teach our little ones about the environment and how to truly help the planet.
I feel so lucky to have my other baby, The Little Seed. It has become an incredible outlet to share with others. It is not only a wonderful store filled with eco-friendly goodies, but it has also become a way of life for so many. I learn every day from those around me and am so… Continue

So here I am this beautiful morning, editing and reviewing over 2,000 photos I have shot in the last week, and I go to my website to post some that are done. To find out that I have never completed my Bio/About me section of my site. Then it occurred to me what is that I want to say about myself? I have no clue.
I can write about many things in my life and capture images that move people, but what can I say about me. I think I am… Continue

So yesterday in my quest of peaceful family living. I decided to write all the silly things the kids say . My 6 year old is so innocent but when he says something you can not help but laugh. He has the dentist office laughing and everyone he meets. So I am writing and sharing with my fav website Moonfrye.

I went to public school and we definitely didn't have to wear uniforms. In fact, getting dressed for school at times was stressful because it was a fashion show. I often wondered if the students at other schools who had to wear uniforms had an easier time. Just thinking back, getting dressed in the morning was a hassle and then I remember thinking that I had nothing to wear, which of course would start tremendous fights between me and my mother. If I… Continue

i live in nyc. and my daughter goes to school in another boro. she takes the train to school. in ny we use metrocards, and sometimes (alot of times) the turnstile tells you to swipe your card again and it takes extra money off of the card. so you can be stranded. it has happened to me several times. anyway the turnstile took all the money off of her card and the station attendent wouldn't pass her thru. so here my 13 y.o. daughter is stranded in the big city, and crying in the train station.… Continue

Lately I have been doing a whole lot of meditatin' and cogitatin' on some of the deep questions of humanity.
I will probably end up sharing my journeys of thought with all you fine moonfrye members, and hopefully get some helpful feedback (and we can all have some fun while we're at it!)
The current question is: Which is superior, the chocolate cookie, or the chocolate cookie dough?!… Continue

All of these items are from ModCloth
I would love to wear this just anywhere
and for the hell of it. I own quite a few dresses, but every time I look at this one I think to myself: "I'd wear that to go run errands."

So, there isn't much to say for this Tuesday. For one, I'm broke. That always puts a hitch in my giddy-up—and (seeing as I'd love to buy every single movie I've ever seen just so I can watch it repeatedly like I did as a kid) it has me in a slightly "down" mood. More so that I can't obtain gainful employment even with my flashy Bachelor's degree than I can't buy out an entire section in Best Buy.
I did find a copy of "The Journey of Natty Gann" in the Disney section and flipped out… Continue

I have been thinking about my number one important Job as a mom. I have been sick for the past 4 years. I have had scans done some say I have a benign brain tumor and some say it is a cyst. I can never get a straight answer. So I always think of the simple things in life. Not knowing my future or what may happen tomorrow I have to get up and go. I do find times I am sorry for myself and I dont want to get out of bed. But what keeps me going Is a story I heard years ago. It was on a talk show… Continue

My son with my ex is almost 10 years old. I always wanted more kids so now that I'm remarried, we're seriously trying to conceive. First step, lots of sex, check! Now we just wait...and wait...and wait. I have an appointment with my OB/GYN next week to talk. I've never "tried" to have a baby before. My son just all of a sudden was there. I'm scared that I'm too old and all my eggs have dried up...so here's hoping for the best.

Well I wrote the speech for the Hospital last Thursday, but all day it was nagging me that it wasn't the right one. So the time came and I only used a few sentences from it. We ended up doing pretty much a stand up comedy routine and I got on my soapbox about getting involved with a cause, well THE cause. It seems that the crowd was energized by it. Just goes to show you shouldn't plan to say what YOU want. You have to be open to respond to the crowd and listen for guidance from above.....It… Continue
