There is someone I want you to meet!

My photography journey didn’t begin with a dream, it evolved into a dream.  Then somewhere along the way “My dreams are….” turned into “I don’t have time to dream, I’m treading water to stay afloat…”  I am absolutely certain there are people out there busier than I am.  But if I learned nothing else from…

The best Christmas gift idea ever!

The journey to our forever home.

Three weeks ago we moved out of the first home that we ever owned.  Well, first home we borrowed from the bank, haha.   We had lived there almost 11 years.  We brought 2 babies home, watched our oldest become a teenager and added more fur babies than my husband wanted in that house.  So…

Our 2016 Disney World & Universal family vacation

We decided to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary (May 14, 2017) early.  Our absolute favorite time to go to Disney World is right after Thanksgiving.  However, I have 2 weddings this upcoming December during our preferred time and I didn’t want to go in May or the summer.  So we went in December 2016…

Make Monday Merry – a new series

January 2nd is my least favorite day of the year.  It ranks right below tax day.  I am pretty lucky that these are my two saddest days of the year.  Anyway, I decided to create a series called “Make Monday Merry”.  Why?  Well, I think we all could use positivity  in our lives, especially on…

My word for 2017

Last year I heard about this idea to embrace a word for the year instead of making resolutions.  Let me be honest here, I thought it was silly.  I continued on with my traditional list making for 2016, but one new thing I added was to celebrate the past year’s accomplishments and blessings (which we…

Together we can inspire kindness. – A challenge!

There has been so much violence and heartache in the world.  Now I haven’t looked up any statistics as to wether these events are increasing in reality or if I just hear more about them due to social media and the internet.  I usually keep quiet about hot topics, but have found myself a bit…

Happy 9th Birthday, Layla!

This girl turned 9 today!  Layla’s name means “dark beauty” and she lived up to her name the day she was born.  She came out screaming (via c-section) with a full head of thick black hair.  I was so shocked by her hair that I did not believe she was mine, but the doctors assured…

How hitting rock bottom in business made me happier.

#bestjobever #ilovemyjob #lifeisamazing #seizetheday #lifeisgood #happy #content  These are all fabulous hashtags that I am sure all of you, as I do, wish we could genuinely apply to our every day lives.  Can we?  I’m going to take a minute to be completely honest with you about what happened to me earlier this year.  Now…

Our Disney World Vacation Photos 2015

We went to Disney in December of 2015.  I WE LOVE DISNEY! We go as often as we can. I love family vacation.  Especially now that I work basically opposite shifts as my husband. I give up many weekends for weddings and sessions that we just don’t always get to do fun things together.  I always…

My Ikea Kitchen renovation project!

Many of you may have followed along last fall on Instagram and saw my IKEA kitchen renovation project.  It was quite the adventure!  I’ve been meaning to write a post about it but haven’t had the chance.  I made some time to take photos this morning.  Keep in mind I have 3 kids, a puppy and…

Traditional New Year’s goals… maybe not…

YAY! It’s New Year’s Eve!  You know what that means, don’t you?  It’s time to sit down with a pen and paper and make a list of everything I did wrong this year or want to do better next year, like I do every year.  Isn’t that exciting? …  *pause with big cheesy smile* ……

Just give me a minute, my babies have all gone to school.

I became a mom at 19.  I knew from a very young age that I wanted to have children. I loved babies and taking care of them. I am a caregiver, it’s just in me.  I became a full time stay at home mom in early 2007.  I had only been working part time since…

That annoying lady has good intentions. Words to moms with littles.

It’s official, I’m finally that annoying lady.  That’s right moms, you know which one I’m talking about it.   She smiles at the mother of a toddler refusing to sit still or listen, throwing a tantrum in a store because it’s past nap time but you were out of milk and diapers.  The woman who asks…

Our weekend away with only iphone photos to share.

We recently took a mini trip to visit family in Ocean City, Maryland.  My husband’s sister and her family live there and we visited them last year for a long weekend.  It was so much fun, we knew we had to put them out again.  I decided last year to take off for Fourth of…
