Today I decided to get into:

1. Couponing (I know right?)
2. Sewing.

This winter will be An Interesting One.

(Sidenote – I wish my garden still looked like this! I HATE THIS COLD WEATHER!)


I Wonder If Ants View Daisies As I View Palm Trees.


I Wonder If Ants View Daisies As I Do Palm Trees.

Every time I ask my husband what he thinks of my photos, he always tells me they look great. I know when you’re in love, you can be biased (isn’t love deaf, blind, and dumb? lol just kidding) – so I always say, “Thanks babe!”, and take it with a grain of salt.

I don’t know what kind of photographer I want to be, or what kind of “style” is particularly mine. I peruse all avenues of The Internet (sometimes it feels like I’ve been to the end of The Internet), reading everything I can about exposure, ISO, aperture, lenses, macro, auto-focus, brackets, DSLR’s, etc, et cetera, … in hopes of sculpting  my third eye aka photo taking ability.

I know within photography, I will be a forever-student, which I don’t mind one bit – but I wish I knew what my photographic signature was.

This photo was taken outside of my front door. Our first summer in our new home. I like to think of it as a representation of the joy we felt when we realized just how BIG we could dream – not to mention, the indescribable joy we felt when the BIG dream came true! 

Beauty In The Breakdown


Beauty In The Breakdown

Growing up, I never played any sports, or played any instruments.

Sometimes (maybe more than some), I wish my parents would have suggested that I join something or everything, in order to figure out what exactly I am good at doing. In my current adult life, I feel like I have no hobby which in turn results in my DH referring to me as a Stage 5 Clinger. (lol)

So, I decided to purchase one of the most expensive things I’ve ever bought for myself: a DSLR. She’s become one of my best friends lately. I am glad to have finally found something I can use to create my own personal art.

I am still studying the art of photography, and I don’t think I will ever become as good as the photographers I admire, but I do enjoy capturing the beauty around me and being able to hone it to my liking.

Not to mention, being able to photograph my beautiful daughter, and my gorgeous son! Even if I never become published, or ever get hired to take photos, I am glad to have something that is all mine, and mine alone.

This photo was taken a few days ago. The roses in my garden are slowly dying. I miss the summer.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You



I used to be anti-pink, but as I began to age, and figured out what kind of person I wanted to be – pink became the color of my new self. It represents the new me. The better me. The me I have always known I could be, but wasn’t sure how exactly to obtain.

I met my now-husband back then.

Hi Pink. 🙂

(Oh, and welcome to my home office… this pink coffee thermos and I are BFF’s!)
