I don't know...

It's been such a long while. A long, long while. I am still taking pictures. Although somewhat sporadically now. I think I lost my place. I got off track. I stepped off the path, and then couldn't find my way back. I am still here though. I feel as if I am walking along side of the path, with no real "in" on how to get back on it. I think every day is a work in progress. Is it a matter of losing skill, or is it a matter of choice? I wish I could convey to you the way I feel. It's as if I feel something great bubbling beneath the surface, full of color and full of life, ready to be magnificent. Yet, that surface has not broken yet. I know I was created to do a great thing. This thing I know. But what that thing is, I have yet to find.

Random musings...lemonade or love?

I named this picture "with love" because I felt like it looked like a postcard that you would mail to someone you loved and then they would get it and their day would be brightened and it would make them smile. Then I mailed it to someone I loved, she got it and she absolutely loved it. However, when she looked at it she said it made her thirsty. I got to looking at it and kinda felt what she was saying, then I thought of a new name for this pic, I think now I might call it "cherry lemonade." Because honestly I got a little thirsty too. What do you think? Does it satisfy the thirst in your heart or the thirst in your mouth??

So precious in His sight...

“A baby is God's opinion that life should go on. Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn baby"

~Carl Sandburg

...And we praise You for that Lord. Thank You for my beautiful and healthy niece. Amen.

“In spite of the six thousand manuals on child raising in the bookstores, child raising is still a dark continent and no one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and luck - and, of course, courage.” ― Bill Cosby

I love this quote by Bill Cosby it is so funny, but so true. Sometimes I feel like raising these kids is just ka-razy, everyday there is something new. But then there are days like this when it all just seems right. We took the kids to Venice beach and spent the day with no agenda, no curfew, and no where to be the next morning. We were hanging hard core and the light was just right.

I love you guys more than you will ever know....

Our Anniversay...

This was a pic I took last year on Joe and I's (not sure if that is proper english) anniversary. We celebrated 11 years of marriage. You know it's funny, when you meet and fall in love and first get married you feel like you know everything there is to know about this person and you love every bit of them and you could never love them anymore than you love them right in that moment. But to be honest, I love Joe even more now than I ever did then. I mean there are times when I may not 'like' him (lol, and I know he could say the same for me), but one thing is for sure, no matter what, I will always, always love him. Just like I have said in the past, marriage is work, it is a daily grind for real, and I know that as long as I have breath this is one job I will never quit. We have literally grown up together and I wouldn't choose anyone else to go the rest of the way with. I love you man...
