One Part Sunshine

A New Determination

new baby new determination

You may have noticed that I haven't been very active on One Part Sunshine over the past year.  Between a horrible case of hyperemesis gravidarum throughout my entire pregnancy and a new baby (she is now 4 months old!), I decided to take a step back from my online obligations.  This was extremely difficult for me because I put a lot of time, money and love into this website.  I have dreams of it being an all-in-one resource for parents trying to create a non-toxic world for their children and a meeting place for like-minded people.  I want to help parents (like me six years ago) who want to choose the safest and most natural products for their babies but don't know where to start.

So I write this as I nurse my little girl, with a newfound determination to make time for One Part Sunshine.  I have learned a lot and changed a lot since I started putting together this website six years ago (mostly while breastfeeding my son).  I now openly breastfeed in public without hiding behind a cover.  I have accepted that being green is not an all-or-nothing decision but rather a do-what-you-can journey.  I cook a lot more and garden more.  And I try to DIY as much as possible for everything from cleaning products to gifts.

Most importantly, I want One Part Sunshine to grow and to become available to many more moms, dads, grandparents and other caregivers.  I recognize that I need help to do that so I'm actively searching for people who want to become involved in this project.  I also realize that a lot of changes need to made to the site.  Here are just a few of the things that I hope to accomplish this year:

  1. Change the focus of One Part Sunshine to the blog instead of the product guides.
  2. Find one or more business partners to help me with marketing and growing the site.
  3. Create a forum for like-minded parents to exchange ideas and advice.
  4. Blog every week and find guest bloggers.
  5. Share products, articles and tips every day on Facebook and Twitter.
  6. Do product giveaways on a regular basis.
  7. Get the e-newsletter going.
I hope all of you bear with me during this time of transition.  Please tell your friends about One Part Sunshine!  And don't be afraid to contact me with any comments or questions.

At vibrator showroom we have the most expansive selection of vibrators and all other sex toys on earth! We have something for everyone no matter your sexual needs or preference. Vibrators can bring you to new levels of ecstasy. If you are new to vibrators you could go with something small and discreet such as a pocket rocket or bullet. If your husband is out of town on business you could enjoy a realistic vibrator. Proceed by trying something new with a g spot or silicone model. As you become more practiced and advanced, you most likely would benefit from a hands free strap on or a rabbit vibrator. Finally, if you are in the mood to really push your limits then proceed with the powerful Magic Wand which doubles as a personal massager for muscle aches.

I truly feel evaluating white and black digital photography with it's film counterpart is like evaluating apples with grapefruits. They just usually are not the same thing in feel and look. I mentioned this at length to some extent 1 of this series. When speaking with professional photographer Hellen Van Meene she identify motion picture as having "miracle". Now I'm unclear exactly what the techical expression for wonder is but creatively I understand exactly what Hellen implies.
