Merry Christmas One & All

I am 100% sure I will not get back to this blog before Christmas ( I haven’t even wrapped presents yet!) (even worse than that, we don’t even have a tree up yet!), so I just wanted to take this time to wish you all a very merry and joyous Christmas, or what ever holiday you celebrate.

Merry Christmas From Our Home To Yours

Oh, and isn’t my little Sheldon the cutest thing ever. I hope to soon have a post up about him soon! For those wondering he is my 8 1/2 week old Pembroke Welsh Corgi.


Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Well, it’s another Sunday ,which means more picture sharing!

Side note… Next week Christmas? Really?!?!?! How and when did that happen?


What is this?

Little Sheldon is checking out Greg’s camera.

Sleeping Fur Baby

Here is my little baby Sheldon. We picked him up Friday. He sleeps on his back, and is just way too cute!


Last summer we were thinking about getting Ty a friend and while we ended up nixing the idea, during my research I realized I LOVED corgis and if we were ever to get another dog, it would be a corgi. Well, this Friday I got my corgi. Bringing a puppy home so soon after Ty’s passing was a hard choice, but I knew I needed it. My house was too empty. Sheldon, my little corgi, arrived Friday and in his two short days here he has already won us all over and brought some Joy back to our house.


So I took this prompt a different way, rather than take a picture of a window, I took one from my window.


Here is half of Padre Pio’s face. He is my moms favorite saint and we have his trinkets all over the house!



A month later.

Dear My Little Ty-Ty,

It has been a little over a month since you left us. Not a day goes by where I don’t miss you terribly, I still find myself expecting you to be waiting for me at home. I love you you little buddy, and I still cry over your loss nearly every day. I know you are in a better place, we are the ones suffering now, not you. It doesn’t make anything better, I still miss you more than anything. What I wouldn’t give to pet you, or cuddle with you one last time. Your silly little smile. At night if Greg or I accidentally drop food on the ground, I still expect you to come running to clean it up. I miss you buddy, we all do. The house is so much colder, emptier and a lot less happy without you.

I am thinking of getting a new puppy. Part of me wants it, I know he wont take your place, but I feel like he will help me, he will fill the gap you left in my heart. At the same time I don’t want you to think that I am replacing you, because I am not. The only thing I want to replace is this emptiness. I feel guilty for wanting a new puppy. Like by wanting one, I am betraying you. I know if you were here it wouldn’t be like this.

Ty, if I do get a new puppy, please know I’m not replacing you, nothing in this world could replace you. Help me pick the right dog.


I miss you Ty. It is crazy to think that you can grieve over a dog this much. I miss you like crazy buddy.

I hope there is lots of Starbucks in heaven.




Why you were taken so young, I will never understand.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday| 12.3.11

Who–me? Back at the old SHS game! Yep, you can believe your eyes.


Lately I have not been taking pictures for any reason other than portrait sessions. I have just not felt into it–lots going on! This week however, I broke my camera out of its bag not once, but twice this week!



This is from my family session earlier today. She also happens to be 18 weeks pregnant, so we snuck in a few pre-maternity shots too. They are turning out adorable so far!


I know this may not be complete nostalgia, but to me antique books and country feel scream nostalgia… Don’t you just love the look of lemons in jars? I do, I know this is a MUST at my way-distant-future wedding!



This photo represents my favorite thing about photography, capturing a moment in time.  (Also I don’t know why her shirt looks weird, I did a facebook resize to this and it warped my photo…)



For ages I have had this cup of straws sitting on my counter screaming photograph me. & I finally answered, I love the warps of light that were created!


I have probably photographed this fountain 100 times! I love, love, love the way water flows down the metal and then looks like its dancing as it hits the pool bellow.



Well that is my spiel hope you enjoyed the pictures, and feel free to look around at what else if going on while I’m “In line for the real world” ( Since I official reach the front of the line, next week–no more college!)



&& Don’t forget to check out more great work :
