Neglect, that's certainly what this blog has been suffering from, that's for sure. I don't really know why I stopped updating it. Well, yes I do and that's the good part. I stopped because I've thought for a long time... Continue reading

Thanks everybody! I had to learn a lot of lessons "the hard way" so I'm always happy to help. I want everybody to have pics that they LOVE.

Earlier this week I ventured a bit north of my usual stomping grounds for a senior shoot with lovely Rachel, who will be graduating from Mason High School this spring (yay!). Rachel came to the shoot with a really good... Continue reading

I can't believe that this is the fourth year of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. It's always been so much fun, and so interesting to see how a group of 50 or so people can walk basically the same steps... Continue reading

I'm not joking, I've been buried under piles of pixels this past week. Between the volleyball tournament, some photo assignments, and helping Anna Aspnes get her store polished up over at Oscraps, I've been really heating up Mr. Mac. I... Continue reading

It's all about hot stuff this weekend - hot temps are back and there is a lot of hot volleyball practically in my own back yard. Yes, it's time once again for the US Open Pro Beach Volleyball championships, right... Continue reading

Well I'm certainly no expert, but as a lapsed WW Lifetime member and former leader, I do believe in the mantra that "weight loss comes from the kitchen not the gym". All the great exercise in the world isn't going to give you the results you want if you're not eating right. Granted, while I believe it, I certainly don't always live it, but I'm trying. I'm down 40 pounds in 2011, even though I've basically stayed steady during the summer (party and BBQ season, no doubt!). But without busting my ass on a regular basis, I certainly wouldn't be where I am, so I know that the moving is important. With that, I'm off to Zumba class. You are doing great! This is the long haul, remember, so it doesn't matter how long it takes. We can't ever quit!

A year ago today (okay, a year ago tomorrow, but it was the last Saturday in August), I drove to lovely southern Kentucky to photography Lena and James's wedding. Happy Anniversary you two! It was fun looking back at your... Continue reading

Hugs! Hey Cathy, for the past two years I have been plagued with chronic lower back pain and sciatica. I have had xrays, MRIs, seen the chiropractor, the orthopaedic surgeon, done massage therapy, and physical therapy. Nothing helped. My doctors could not figure it out. Then in May, I decided to fix some lingering gyno problems that had been annoying the crap out of me for several years. Miracle of miracles, when I fixed the fibroids, the polyps, and the endometriosis, my back pain immediately went away. Just something to think about. Nothing was working to help me, but now it's gone. Normally I wouldn't mention it, but we're in that lovely time in our lives where our girlie parts can start making our lives miserable. I just didn't realize what a real bitch Mother Nature was being to me until I fixed her wagon. Anyhow, if your back pain continues or re-occurs, it's something to think about. Love ya.

It's been a long time since I've given you an update of any kind, never mind an update on how my weight loss efforts are going. I don't expect you to remember, but on the first Monday of January, I... Continue reading

Yeah... Long time no blog. I guess I've been pretty wrapped up in working out, losing weight, learning to play golf and end of the school year festivities that it just hasn't been a big priority. But I want to... Continue reading

I'm so sorry that you're struggling. I think we've all been there. Remember that all we have is today. That's all that counts!

Congratulations! I'm so glad that you found the fortitude/strength/will/everything-it-takes to quit. My FIL is dying of emphysema. It's a horrendous way to check out of this planet, and my MIL is right by his side, still smoking two packs/day while he's on ten liters of oxygen. She's lost two siblings from the same insidious disease, yet remains unwilling to even entertain the idea of quitting. A few years ago, she told me (direct quote), "I'd rather smoke my entire life and die ten years too soon than be fat like you." Well okay then. Anyhow, huge accomplishment! WTG!
