We Are Having A Baby! Yay!

Great news here!!! In just a couple of weeks Alex and I will be welcoming our first baby! So excited about this wonderful change in our lives…

Here is my baby bump at 5 months pregnant taken in downtown Santa Barbara:

I’ve been feeling good, except for normal pregnancy related inconveniences, and have been working through these last months focusing on my micro stock portfolio. Of course, as we near the due date, I am changing my work routine… Hope everything goes well :)

Great Holiday Season In Santa Barbara

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed your holiday season. Alex and I surely did! :) We had lots of fun during Christmas and New Year time in Santa Barbara with our old and new fiends.

With all the flowers and green grass it is hard to forget it’s the middle of winter ;)

I am back to work for the last couple of days uploading old/new images to various websites. I try to create new patterns too, so stay tuned for fresh images ;)

In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures from winter Santa Barbara…
