It's My SITS Day

Today is my day as the featured blogger on SITS! I'm excited. SITS is a really cool site that encourages women bloggers to leave comments on each other's blogs as a sign of support. I have always had positive comments here and really like getting them.

So, welcome to my Sisters from SITS! Thank you for stopping by, I hope you hang out for a while. Feel free to look around, delve into the archives, visit my Etsy shops, follow me on twitter and ask me any questions.

Here is a bit about me and my blog. I started Adventures in Wonderland in April 2009 ( almost two years ago! ). I live in Northern California but I was born and raised in Texas until I was 17 years old. I graduated from college in 2008 with a BA in Psychology and minor in Art History. I love to travel and spent two weeks in Europe after graduation.

After two years working with children with special needs, I am now applying to graduate schools to get my masters in Communication Disorders. I plan on being a Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist (Kid's Speech Therapist), I will know where I was accepted soon and am very excited.

Arrow is my sidekick. He's an Australian Shepherd-Border Collie mix and is my favorite photography subject. He even has a calendar! I think he's pretty awesome.



My main hobby, which has turned into a side business, is photography. I specialize in photographing children and pregnancy. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and would like to have me photograph your family or something else, just leave a comment or send me an email. I was published in California Homes Magazine in November 2010, which was pretty cool.








As a thank you I will send one random commenter from today a little package of goodies. This may include some hand made hair accessories from my site and a few hand designed cards. I may throw in a few other treats too!

So take a look around, put your feet up (not on the sofa!), grab a lemonade (and a coaster) and enjoy. Thanks for visiting!

Enjoy your Day!!!

Saucy B said...

Congrats on your SITS day! Your photos are gorgeous. The one of the mom to be and dog is so unique.
Love your blog design too.
I take photos of my kitty for something I do every week called Make me Laugh Monday. Although they are not nearly as good as the ones of Arrow. I'm sure know how hard it is to get good pics of pets.
Come check us out sometime if you like:

What a wonderful site! I wish I had figured this much out in my twenties. It would make these thirties much less complicated! Good for you, and your photographs are absolutely beautiful. Happy SITS day!

Meghan this is a beautiful blog! I love your photos, (I especially love Arrow's face! Awwwww) and the new layout looks beautiful! (Looking at the offical site you had this layout designed with to give my own blog a makeover. Have no idea where to begin though, or how it works)

Good luck on grad school, and congrats on being chosen as a featured blogger! It's totally deserved! I'll be checking out more of your posts!

Happy SITS Day ~

Love your photograph. I've always wanted to be a great photographer. What's your gadget? I'm into Canon although, I owned a Nikon.

April said...

Hi Meghan! Happy SITS Day! First of all, I really love your photography! I'm very interested in photography myself, but realize that I have so much to learn! Secondly, I understand that you're wanting to pursue a Master's degree in speech-language pathology. I have a M.A. degree from the Univ. of Tenn.-Knoxville. I left the profession 19 years ago to be a full-time SAHM. I loved working with people who had speech, language, and hearing disorders...it's a very rewarding field. I hope to be able to get back into it when my youngest daughter graduates from high school in 4 years. I wish you the very best of luck!

Amy said...

l Love your dog! Stopping by from SITS! Enjoy your feature day!

JessRaquel said...

Happy SITS day! I love your blog, your photos are amazing and I also have a border collie/aussie mix! He's more Border then anything though... Started following you, can't wait to read more!

BTW, what is your advice for a starter camera? I've been dying to get into photography and I really want the Olympus Pen but at the moment it's a little out of my price range.. Any suggestions?

Amanda @ Ninth Street Notions said...

Happy SITS day and congrats! Your photography is truly gorgeous. If I were pregnant or had kids or even lived in California, I would definitely call you up.

Megan (Best of Fates) said...

Congrats on your SITS day - I always love finding new friends who aren't part of our small bastion of non-mommy SITSas!

bigguysmama said...

Hurray on your SITS day! I love your layout. It looks like a scrapbook! I also love the design of your header. I have a border collie mix who is almost 3 yrs old. He started having seizures almost a year ago. Your Arrow is adorable and I know he and my Rugby would be good buddies. I see he reviewed 127 Hours below this post so I'll have to see what he thought of it! Have a great day.

Rebecca said...

Happy SITS Day!

I think your blog is very pretty. I love your photos. I'm in photography, too. - Trying to start out.

I was wondering if you could give me any tips?

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

I love that your dog has his own calendar! That's hilarious. We used to have a dog like that next door and my son would go over to play. If the little boy wasn't home, he'd ask if he could have the dog over to play because she was so much fun!

Tea Time Consultants said...

Wonderful photos! My son lives in San Jose, I would love to have photos of him and his five year old son.

He is on facebook, if your interested. Thanks for sharing your blog.

You photographs are beautiful. I especially like the pregnant woman with the dog. Beautiful.

Mayhem and Moxie said...

Just getting a minute to read through your post now. I knew you lived in Northern California, but I had no idea how close we are to one another. I just recently made the move from Oakland to Roseville.

My husband and I are looking to have pics of our kids (ages 5, 3, and 6 mos) taken soon. If you're interested, please let me know!

Thanks! And happy SITS Day.
