I didn’t forget {I Swear}

…I just got distracted! I carry my camera everywhere. I take photos everyday. Last year I was really good (for awhile) posting photos on my photo blog and then life. just. got. busy. So…..I will TRY to do better. I can not promise. Try. So, I would love for you to join me at the photo blog. I would also love for you to share your link with us if you have a photo blog. {The best part about having …

Round Two

I couldn't help it! I kept on thinking of all the other little things that I knew you guys would love that would be affordable for gift giving. So, here is my second…and LAST…list of favorite things.  Promise. Who am I kidding…I could have another one on Friday. Without further ado…here is round two (a bit shorter..but just as sweet).  1. I know I mentioned Mindy Gledhill last time but this time I am just putting music in general on …

Being Realistic

Have you ever watched Oprah's Favorite Things episode? I am sure you have! I remember when Jack was a baby and rushing home with one of my best friends (along with her baby) so we could watch it. I have to say that 10 years ago the episodes were a little more affordable. I hadn't watched one in years and this year I made sure I did.

What a little man) What is truly special about this family is that they are two families coming together to create a new one. These photos are …

Scouting It Out {With My Sidekick}

  Last week Benjamin and I took a little walk to scout out a location for a family photo shoot I was doing.   Sometimes I don't realize how little time Kelly and I get alone with each of them. When we have that time alone with one of the children I love it.   I think you see more of who they REALLY are when they are alone with you.   I always walk away from times like this …

Miracles Do Exist

I am not one to read the directions or manuals for ANYTHING.  If I can't figure it out…I find someone that can.  I may have only married for this reason.  That and dishes up in really high cabinets.  Moving on…I need a man.  It is sad and pathetic, but I don't want to put furniture together, install software on my computer, figure out the espresso maker for the first time…you see where I am heading.  I am a directions loser.  …
