Woot woot!!

I’m finally feelin’ like I’m not *such* a newbie around here anymore 🙂

This winter I’m focusing on the Gig Harbor area parks and playgrounds we love!

I also have more big news to share soon … But more on that later 🙂

At left is the region of Washington State  ParentMap’s recommended bloggers generally write about – all geographically situated around the Puget Sound. The Puget Sound is a saltwater inlet off the Pacific Ocean in western Washington, intricately carved out of the mainland millions of years ago by glaciers. Cool, huh?

The writers, moms and photographers who cover this area with me are the coolest. And I’d like to take a moment to personally mention my own mini list of the super kind and generous PNW friends I’ve made here on IG that also have handy kid IG pages for this little corner of Washington:
