Shut up, I'm still Talking



True words.  Hard true words though.  I struggle with just letting things go, and moving forward for many reasons.  Being hurt, being mad, being scared.  No reason is really a good one in the end, because the end is what we all have in our future.  I don't want to live the rest of my life being upset that a friend hasn't called in a while, I am going to make that call first.  I don't want to live my life being scared that someone will be unfaithful to me, I am going to be more confident that it won't happen (again).  I don't want to live the rest of my life being scared to take a risk, I am going to leap forward-maybe tip-toe!  I have always said, "it's our only life, why waste it being a piece of shit?".....

Our Weekend...


Well this was our first overnight weekend with Miss O.  It went well & she couldn't have been more perfect.  Friday night she went down about 9pm and didn't wake up again until 4:45am.  Saturday night she went down about 7:30pm and didn't get back up until 7:30am, now we must have worn her out.  She played and played, laughing & screaming with all the happiness she could.  This afternoon before she left, I snapped a few photos with the big camera-:)

2014 is 14 days young today....


Wow, can you believe we are already two weeks into Two Thousand Fourteen?  I certainly can't.  I know that come December, we'll wonder where the year went.  How did 2013 treat you?  For me it was a rather painful eye opening year, but so was 2012 so I am very happy to have both of them behind me. I  am really looking forward to all the good things 2014 has to offer me and my family.

New adventures are on the horizon for sure, and I can't wait to share them with the people in my life.  One of the new things coming this year is business related, re-branding.  Always a scary, yet necessary adventure.  Working on something timeless, not to trendy-something that will stick around for years to come.  I can't wait to share it with you!

Baseball sign ups are coming up this month.  I am pretty excited for this season and I hope to be able to take a lot more photos then I've done in the past two years.  Well, let's face it-I have not been myself in the past two years & my photography (business & personal) has suffered for it.  But I am on track again.  As a matter of fact, I won't be derailed again.  I have made up my mind on what to focus on, and everything else will either fall into place or fall away.  And I will be okay with either.

Gavin, The Senior


It's bittersweet for sure.  I am proud of him and am looking forward to watching him graduate in May, but I also wish time would just slow down for the next few months so I can enjoy my time with him before 1. He turns 18, 2. Graduates High School & 3. Joins the Army & Moves out of the house!!!

I love you son and am very proud of the little pain in the ass you grew up to be :)

My Youngest, Weston


Weston and I went on a mini adventure to see if we could capture a few photos that I could have printed from the wall.  It's been so long since I've taken photos like this of my own kids, I forgot how much I enjoyed it.  Gavin is next on the agenda.  Here are a few that we got of Weston.
