I have taken a huge interest in photography. I had my first photo session with my cousin's family this past weekend. Nervous doesn't even describe how I felt. Terrified more like it. What if I don't get any good shots, what if they don't like the shots I get, etc etc etc... Turns out I had nothing to worry about, the shoot was so much fun. I feel so grateful that I was able to capture these images for them. Here are a few :)

Thank you Hurricane Earl

Never thought I would ever write a post quite like this. But thank's to Hurricane Earl out in the Atlantic, we have had some absolutely beautiful weather this week. So last night I forced my hubby and lil girl, down to the beach. I was just convinced that with Earl out there, it was prime time for looking for shells. Unfortunately for me there were no shells, but the scenery was totally gorgeous or as my 4 year old would say " totally awesome Momma".

You spin me right round

*You spin me right round, baby
right round like a record, baby
Right round round round*

That is certainly how I have felt this last year. I have neglected so many things, but started so many other things. My husband came home from Afghanistan, we moved, and Emily started Pre-school. I think things are finally settling down and we are getting into a routine. Which has been sorely lacking here in the past few months. I haven't scrapped in a few months. I have 10+ layouts half done. I was without a printer to print out my journaling on. I have been seriously considering starting a photography business. Right now I am just getting the hang of things. Doing a few sessions here and there. I will leave you with some of my recent faves of pictures....

Where does the time go?

I ask myself this every day. Sorry I haven't been around much. I am backed up on my emails too. Let me try and get you up to speed on what has been happening in the past few months. Emily started preschool back in September. We have been going to Gainesville to see our gators play. We went to Disney World on Nov. 1st for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. (which might I add a total blast!!) Getting ready for Michael to come home for R&R. Yes Michael is coming home very soon for a well deserved break. Emily and I are beside ourselves. I am putting up the Christmas Tree a week early because of all the excitement. I have lost 31lbs since August. My baby turns 4 next week, so we are in party planning mode here. Wizard of Oz is her theme. Ummmmmmmm that's really it. I drove 9 hours today so I am a little out of it, but wanted to give you guys an update no matter how crazy it is :) Hopefully I will be back to posting soon :)

Some Scrappy Goodness

Life has been crazy busy, but I have been scrapping :) Thought I would share. Have a beautiful day :)

During this deployment I am learning about myself. There are things I never thought I would have to deal with. Personally the thought of dealing with it scares me. I have always had someone to take care of me or lean on when things get rough. I made a joke with Michael before he left that atleast I didnt have to worry about his car breaking down ( it's a 2008 Acura TL), I spoke to soon. Not even 2 weeks after he left, the car died. I was mortified. Not only did it break down, but the tag that I had been after him to renew expired. So here I am alone with a three year old and a broken car. I will NEVER joke about anything like that again. Did I mention all the traveling I was doing while this happened, so the car has sat for 2 months and now is finally fixed. So now I have a new appreciation for the things that my husband does for me.

I have been doing a little scrapping here and there. Haven't finished anything persay, but I will give you a peek of what I have been working on.........
