Keeping it Real....

My life is so full right now, and I am thankful. I am a wife of 28 years, a mother for 24, a child care provider for 30, and now a very busy photographer. I've been a daughter, sadly that phase of my life is over. I'm still a sister, and one who loves...

Love Without Boundaries...

I've been married a very, very long time. Long enough now for the new to wear off my crystal chandeliers, twice. I've been with the same man for so long, that I can read his mind. I can read his moods, and hear his heartbeat even from the other side...

When the Kids Grow Up...

Feeling Old....

Second Hand Embarrassment...

Sometimes I read things people say and I am embarrassed for them, we call that secondhand embarrassment. Take all these young teens that I am friends with on fb. They are such emotional creatures, with very small chains on their mouths. In fact some...

Monday again....

I don't about you, but I'm shocked at how fast this year has flown by. It is already Oct. 3rd and we are full into Fall. Actually it feels more like Winter to me. It is 46 degrees and I had to turn on my heat this morning to knock off the chill for...
