I attempted to document A Day in the Life this week....and really just made it through the morning. I took a few random shots throughout the rest of the day, but just wasn't feeling it. That's okay. Even this small... Continue reading

Aruba over Christmas sounds so awesome. Hope and I tried to get Austin to agree to a tropical Christmas several times, but he always resisted. My Aunt is going to New Zealand & Australia in the fall!

I grappled with that when I moved...and decided that for now, they still bring me joy. So, I've kept them. Although, I did edit down to 1 copy of each, and donated the rest. As some point, I may scan "my" pages/articles/covers for an album or photo book. Or I might just keep it all for now. I did go through all of my layouts before the move & edited down - I didn't keep anything that I had done SOLELY for an assignment.

Our weather forecasts swings wildly at this time of year - highs in the 50s (when we're lucky), lows in the teens (when we're not so lucky). I'm pretty sure that we say this every year, but....this winter has felt... Continue reading
