Fearless Friday - Amazing

In an email from a friend today was a note that said "Bad decisions make good stories". I'm not sure about you, but I probably have many good stories to tell. This week in particular has been a tough week of dealing with some realities in my life. Trying to find the right image for this post really took a lot of time and effort. This week, the Fearless Friday girls are taking on the word AMAZING.

I think I've shared this image before, but I found it this week while rifiling through some family pictures. I love this image. I love the complexity of the canyon in the background against the serene environment of the golf course. I love how the sun peaks between the trees and over the Perrine Bridge. This image reminds me to always find the time to look around and take in all of the amazing gifts God has created for us.

My life may not be perfect. I may not get to do all of the things I want to do. I can, however, work hard everyday toward the things that are important to me. And even if I don't accomplish everything, I know that I will have done my best and in doing that, my life will still be AMAZING!

Fearless Friday - Love

Welcome to the first edition of Fearless Friday!! In December of this past year I attended the Making Thing Happen intensive in Watercolor, FL and met some AMAZING women who I am so glad to call my friends. Every other week, eight of us will be doing a post on our site all revolving around the same theme. In honor of the upcoming holiday, this week we will each be tackling our definition of LOVE.

I have so many things to be thankful for in my life, and love is a word that is used a lot in our house. I have an amazing husband, a beautiful son (yes, boys can be beautiful), a photography job that I truly love, a wonderful (and really big) family, and amazing friends.

One of the things I love most right now is seeing things from my little T's point of view. Every day he is growing and learning new things and it amazes me. He amazes me. For my post this week I thought I would tell you all of the things that Tyler loves.

LOVE from a 1yr old's point of view...

"I love to put stuff in the trash can and the toilet"...no seriously, he thinks its the funniest thing ever.

"I love to pull all of my clothes out of my dresser drawers"


"I love to hang out with my dad and watch a movie right before bed" - he's done this since he was a little baby and still does it everynight before going to sleep.


"I love my Maggie" - especially when he can pull her tail and feed her food from the high chair.


"I love being chased by my mom and dad"

"I love food" - this kid is a bottomless pit. There is nothing he won't eat.

"I love to stand in front of the washer and watch it spin"

"I love to climb on the couch, on the coffee table and into the bathtub"

"I LOVE bathtime"


"I love to close the door on people, even though I cry when I realize I lock myself in"


"I love to hang out with my cousins" - although you won't know it from their faces LOL


"I love to play in my crib"


Now you can head on over to my friend Angie's blog to see how she feels about "LOVE"

Valentine's Day is just around the corner

So this isn't technically my first Valentine's day as a mom, but it is the first year that I was able to make a fun Valentine's day card for my little T (sorry, no preview of the card yet).

I had so much fun picking out an outfit and taking a few shots of him last weekend. My big kid, Tyler...




Stay tuned for a new feature post on Friday! So excited!
