the fairy garden

Last year Grandma bought P a “Make-Your-Own” Fairy Garden. My girl asked many times for some help with planting her garden and I kept saying “just wait till the weather warms up.” On our first “warm” weather day she got it all out of the box and started planting on her own. That motivated me … [Read more…]

Favorite Photo Friday – Golf

I’m renting a new lens this week, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L, and Zach was happy to be my model. He is in Champs golf four days a week gearing up for the high school golf team. I definitely see improvement, but he’s a little hard on himself. I’m just glad that he’s found something … [Read more…]

St. Louis

Last weekend B and I traveled to St. Louis to attend Oprah’s LifeClass. I took my camera but didn’t get a lot of pics. However, I had fun editing the few photos I did take.

Where did the time go?

It seems like I write so many posts these days wondering how it could be that my children are another year older.  It’s actually quite silly, but truly how I feel!  Once again I’m amazed at the age of one of my children because it was only yesterday that they were small. Today we’re celebrating … [Read more…]
