8.9.2010 TODAY

We are excited to introduce everyone to Maddy! She is our newest contributor from New Jersey/New York City! (Lives in Jersey, works in NYC) We all are looking forward to getting to know her better through pictures! You can go here to learn more about her, or simply click on her name in our header.

Also, we want to remind everyone to remember to get your posts ready for tomorrow's "Tuesdays around the world" linky party! We can't wait to see your todays! But for now...

Welcome to Communal Global, Maddy!

Saw this in the grass... glad I didn't step on it!

My Courgettes are doing very nicely (and taste good too)!

Historic Speedwell
Can you believe I've driven by this historical park a 1000 times and never once stopped to see what's inside?! That's the great thing about photography...everything peeks your curiosity! Now I know that the first telegraph was publicly demonstrated here and that this is an awesome location for an impromptu photo shoot ;o)

'NO, I am NOT tired. I do not need a nap. Seriously.'

Today, I am really excited! Baby Bob's nursery is being featured on a design blog. (It's supposed to post today, anyway, so check in here if you want to see it...and hopefully it will be up when you go! (We are in very different time zones, so I don't know when August 9th starts over there! ;) Happy Monday everyone!


8.9 Today
Pencils sharpened, ready for the first day of school!

I'm back from a week long camping trip in Germany! It was pure paradise!

The kids are LOVING having Mommo (grandma) here once again!


  1. Welcome, Maddy! Wow, your photo looks like a vintage picture postcard. :)

    Caroline, your courgette looks super yummy!

    Becky - You made me laugh out loud with your caption!!

    Congrats on your nursery being featured on a design blog, Lola! Your 'creations' do belong in a glossy magazine... I've always said that. :)

    Tezzie - Grandmas are great, aren't they? :)

    Loving all the Today pics!

  2. Welcome, Maddy!! I can't wait to see all of your 'Todays' :D

    B'mama - Ewww..creepy crawly! Oddly, though, they don't bother me so much out in's only once they come inside that I get really grossed out. Of course, I wouldn't want to step on one, in any case...he's kinda pretty in a shiny/colourful way, though, isn't he?

    Caroline - Yummy zucchini!! Love the colours in your photo :D

    Maddy - what a beautiful's often like that, isn't it?!...there are lots of places around where I live that I've been meaning to stop and take a look at, but one rarely takes the time for stuff like that (except for when I go away on vacation)

    Becky - ha! I recognize THAT expression ;D I love the boy with the sandwich in the background...kinda half shocked at the grumpiness and wondering what will be done about it! Adorable capture!

    Lola - Yay!!! You're being featured!! And, rightfully, so, I might add...that room is INCREDIBLE, especially since you've done it 'on a shoestring'. They must've seen your 'fake' interview ;D

    Rocio - Wow...I don't even know what I'm looking at...but I can't say I've ever seen THAT before, whatever it's doing...

    Sarah - Missed one! ;D Awesome shot...good luck with the school start :D

    Sonya - What an awesome camping site...I love camping out. I'm glad it was wonderful <3

    Have a great start to your week, everyone!
