I {heart}...

these three little people.

I was organizing my computers digital files. I found this picture that I took on Christmas Eve.

I LOVE it! I love the way they interact

(well, on most days)

Which leads me to my new little book.

Its a "One line a day" 5 year Memory Book.

Its so cute and doesn't feel big and scary like a journal.

So far I love it. It doesn't take much to fill the little space given for the day.

I write little things the girls say. I let them write their names in it. I write about the way I feel on that certain day. I know that I am going to cherish it over the next 5 years.

I got it at Amazon. Check it out...
You will love it too!

9 months...

He is 9 months old!
I have a love/hate relationship with these children of mine growing...

I LOVE each new stage, each new milestone...

but I hate that they have to grow up so fast.

He is so much fun!

He weights 19.6 lbs.

He is 28 in. long.

He has 2 bottom teeth and 4 teeth on the top that are just about popping through.

He stands up to all the furniture and walks/runs around them.

He is going to be walking very, very soon.

He loves his sisters and laughs and laughs when they play.

He says dada the minute his daddy walks through the door.

He smacks his lips when we say give me a kiss.

He loves to play with Coco.

And I absolutely adore him!

Bathroom sink...

Because I am behind, I am jumping all around the "get organized in 21 Days" list.

Under my bathroom sink was in desperate need of some organization.

I tackled it and then moved on to under my kitchen sink and Laundry Room.

WOW! It feels so good!

My kids and my husband are even helping to keep it organized! I LOVE IT!!

Try it!!
Just organize one space! It becomes an addiction!!

A sad house...

After taking down my Christmas, my house was sad!!
(and I know this because it told me)

Valentines is in one month...
why not enjoy another holiday!

I have seen this subway art everywhere.
I decided to make my own.

I found a frame...
took the picture out of it...

Made one of my own on PSE...

And added it to my shelf.

(I don't like the cream mat...I'll have to fix that)

I am all about reusing and recycling what you already have...

try it, make it, and LOVE it!

Project 52...

I am participating in a 52 Week Project
with Sandi Bradshaw and a whole lot of photographers from all over.
I needed to challenge myself.
I needed to learn more and grow as a photographer.
This sounded like a great way to do that.

So Week 1 was a self protrait...

I must say that it is so much easier for me to be behind the camera instead of in front of it.

I hate pictures of myself,

but I am determined to see it through so I'll deal with it.


This month is going to be about focus.
I am going to focus on getting organized.

I am really sad that didn't find this blog until last Friday.
I wish that I wasn't a week behind.

Join the 21 day challenge with me at A bowl full of lemons

My kitchen "Junk" drawer...

Bathroom Drawers...


They look SO much better!!
I feel better about it and it only took me 20 minutes to do all of them!

It's a New Year...

Insead of a long list of "resolutions,"

of unrealistic goals,

that never see me through the 1st week of January,

I am doing something different this year.

One word...

or rather 3 words,

that I have chosen to use as guidance for this upcoming year.




Good words, right?

Each of these words have a different meaning to me. I may use them all or just one at a time.

This last year has been crazy for us.

New job, new baby, adjusting to both.

We have been so very blessed this last year,

yet I don't think that we had the time or energy to savor it.

So back to the words...


I am going to focus on different things each month.

Focus on a small goal and see it through.

Whether it be laundry, decorating my house room by room, building a better business,

learning new things, or on being a better mom.

I may share my focus with you,

then again I may not.


I need to learn to say no. I need to not bite off more than I can chew.

I need to sit back and enjoy little moments.


I need to nourish myself. I need to nourish my body, my mind, and my spirit. I need to take more time for myself and not feel bad about it. I need to be able to be creative on a daily basis. I need to read more. I need to feel enlightened. I need to remember what it was I loved about photography and learn from it again.

I feel like if I am able to nourish myself, I will be a better mother and a better wife!

I am hoping to do some new fun things with this blog. Check back to see what I have in mind...
Do your have any New Years Goals you want to share??
