Another monday

Mondays are always filled with hope on getting the long to-do list done! Most of the time it doesnt get done but I am happy with it getting shorter. I am in the process of starting a new blog for just all things creative. And a vow to actually blog!
We are suppose to be having some majorly hot weather coming up. Want to get out of the house soon before it gets too hot!

Yup, thats me. It's okay though. Hey, its busy over here. Busy in a good way though. The fundraiser is coming along so awesome. (anyone reading want to donate something to the gift auction???) My boys & I are having such a fun summer. Beach, crafts. Honestly, with them being so close I never thought Id see the day we could actually go to the beach. Just the 3 of us. But we do! Things are getting easier. Both of them are talking up a much fun. Just some pics from our summer so far

Yes, we colored rice. Perfect project for toddlers!!

busy busy busy

Life has been way busy and doesnt look like slowing down. We spent Memorial Day Weekend with our anniversary dinner (fondue...yum), a friends wedding, and BBQs with family.

I like being busy actually. I shot my friends wedding and was happy with the results

Here are a few...

On a side note, have been dealing with alot of negative people in my life lately. Working so hard on getting rid of negative things. I have dealt with depression for so many years and finally feel like it is gone, I dont want to deal with negative anything. I need to learn to speak my mind too. Well, everyone needs work and it takes time.

Sadness and Hope

3 weeks ago our community lost a boy to cancer on his 16th birthday. I have never witnesses such sadness as I did standing in line at his wake. Teenage boys with swollen, red eyes. Girls holding onto their friends. The whole week was such a eye opening experience. Enjoy every minute of your life. Life is too short for bickering and petty little problems.
In the days following this tragedy, I decided along with one of my friends to hold a scrapbooking crop to raise money for the foundation in his name. It will take place in August in a large hall locally. If anyone is reading this and would like to donate something to our gift auction, please contact me.

Even more time passing by...

Wow...been so long. Life has been crazy busy..birthdays, planning a baby shower, sick kids, many many kids at my tiny house for a Egg Hunt. Some cabin fever thrown in there..But I am back, and I mean it this time!! LOL.

I am now a mom to a 3 year old and a 2 year old. For three weeks I was the mom of 2 two year olds. Life isn't dull, I can tell you that. Most days are a whirlwind. I am so looking forward to the laid back days of summer. We live minutes from the ocean and within walking distance from the bay. Last summer was alot of fun with my boys and I think this year will be even more so!

I will leave you with a website i found that i love

Struggle to Blog

I have tried and tried almost every night to write an entry. Three things always stop me...the total exaustion that comes at the end of the day, the 101 other things that need to be done and the biggie...what to blog about that people will really care enough to read. I havent blogged enough to have a following so who would read it anyway?!? Sometimes I feel like its just self importance to blog. But I started blogging because I loved to write when I was younger and always feel I have lost so much of myself. That being said...more than half of the blogs I read are about everyday things in peoples lives that I dont even, why not right???

So, I will be starting a 7 days of Everyday Life which I have seen on many people blogs lately.

Today was just as much the same as every day. Got out for all of 20 minutes to take some photos. Tomorrow I hope to really get out and shoot alot more. So here are a couple of my cute feathered friends from today.

Also, If anyone stumbles upon this, please, tell me why you blog.

How long has it been??

Wow...far too long! A couple of my close friends are blogging now so I thought I better get back to it. Boring day today, snow...we are staying in!!
With the new year here I have been putting alot of thought in to stepping up my photography. I want to learn all I can, maybe take classes, maybe try the 365 thing again and stick with it this time!!! So I hope to share lots of photos on here soon!
Till later...
