Little Miss Spunky

I can't believe its been a whole year since this little booger was born. Her mommy and I have been friends for a long time, and I was so excited for them when she got pregnant, and especially excited when they found out it was a girl (cause guess who loves to buy girly clothes??)  The whole time she was pregnant, we tried our best to avoid any conversation related to my dealing with NILMDTS, so when Katy called to tell me that Miss J had made her entrance into the world, but there had been complications, my heart sank. I went home and cried, TERRIFIED I was going to have to do a NILMDTS session for another friend.(which I did NOT share with her until much later) Thank God, I didn't have to, because little Miss Spunky pulled through it all, and as you can see is a-okay ;) I swear she gets cuter everytime I see her.

TOUCHDOWN!...she entertained an entire coffee shop with this trick,lol.

I love her funny sad

She had cake, but Im not sure what she really thought of it. At least we managed to get some smiles before total meltdown :D She's had enough of me and my camera.
Happy Birthday big girl! Hugs and smooches!

Only God knows

How one little tiny person, can light up your entire world. This image makes me cry, a good happy cry, but one of those, feel the lump in the back of your throat, eyes well up with a big grin kind of cry.

Anyone who knows Nick, Andrea and Essie, should feel the same. So, little peanut is now 2 yrs old, and such a big girl. She is full of her own ideas, and is a very very busy little bee,lol. We didn't see much of this happening during the session

Mostly this:

Even as a tiny baby, she had the most beautiful eyes and lips, still does!
My favorite, I cant get enough of those chubby legs and piggy tails.
Love you guys!

Can you handle it?? Can you handle his adorableness?? I had to physically resist the urge to eat his little face.

Little "D" turned one, and he's a poser!! :D

Places my eyes like to land

Can we chat?? This is a Tara Whitney inspired blog. Awhile back Tara posted pics of some sweet spots in her house, and funny thing is, her style reminded me a little of my own, (although clearly not as awesome as Tara) so I decided to do my own. When the boys and I moved a year ago, we gained an extra room we didnt have before. I think besides gaining a garage, I was the most excited about this extra room. Finally a room I could claim for myself, a room with a front window view( I hadnt had a front window in....years, sounds weird I know), a room I could escape for a little quiet time. I dont really have a home office, the boys highjacked my desk a long time ago, so this is the room I work on my laptop, watch a little TV, drink tea and read...ok so I dont read much anymore, although I *am* actually trying to read a little bit of this book Change the World, by Michael Slaughter, everyday. (It is my goal to finish it before the kids graduate)

Another struggle I have had for the last year...ok mom, more than a keeping my house as tidy as I would like. So, I practice denial, by strategically placing little gems around my sanctuary, so I can focus on those instead of reality :D .....It works, sometimes

If you have followed my blog for awhile, you may have noticed that my lone vintage camera collection has grown to many.(this isnt even all of them :/) I think I may have a problem,lol. Some people call it hoarding, I try to call it decorating. Honestly I am not very good at decorating, I  have a mismatch style. I kind of like to think its what the inside of my brain must be like :P Eh...who cares, I like my "stuff"

Another perk to our new place, although I guess since we have been here a year its not new, is the gardening. Let me clarify....once upon a time, a cute little old lady lived here who had a green thumb, and she grew wonderfully beautiful things. Things that for some reason, keep coming up and growing, even though I have a history of killing plants just by breathing. But alas! I have flowers! AND I have a Peach Tree. A peach tree which just happens to be sick I think. Last year it only grew 3 blooms, one of which actually grew something baring a slight resemblance to a fruit. After some minor surgery last summer, resulting in a few less limbs (the tree not me ;)  this spring, the tree was FULL of big beautiful blooms. I dream at night of being Suzie Homemaker and having jars of yummy peach preserves. Uh, yeah who am I kidding. So I just want the tree to grow a peach. *A* PEACH, an actual edible peach. And then I can boast of being some super human being that GROWS things....besides mold. I am good at growing mold,lol.

My tree is also resting place to many birds. The boys and I like to bird watch. Our favorites are the cardinals, but this guy caught my eye one day. I wish I had the camera around the day I looked out the window just in time to see a squirrel hanging for dear life from the bird feeder, desperately trying to feed himself, poor guy,lol.

Anyway...theres a tiny glimpse into my world outside the studio walls. Till next time :)
