08/12/10 Rachel and Madie...

This picture makes me laugh! I think Madie is saying "Help me Nana" as Rachel is chewing or whispering or doing something she doesn't like to her ear! It was a fun day taking lots and lots of pictures along with bribery, sweating, silliness and whatever else it took to get some good ones. To see more sweet pictures of Rachel and Madie go to

08/11/10 - New logo/watermark

Well I found this logo and I love love love it! It's so me! But when I got it and used it for a watermark on my photos I thought the tree was just too much.... : ( So I rearranged the bird, changed the font and color and still haven't come up with something I'm really happy with. So what do you think? Any comments are appreciated.

This is the one I'm leaning to....seems to show up the best with being too much.

This one is straight from the logo....I love it but just doesn't seem to show up as well.

This one I like too but when being black also is a problem showing up....

Bird on the left....

And pink text. Just not sure which one and maybe I should try some more.........

New Blog Posts.....Finally....

My family and friends have been asking "why haven't you posted's been over a month that I've been looking at that painted bunting!" I've been busy with life. And while there are so many good things going on I feel that I do the same good things almost every day. Quite frankly I thought no one wanted to read about another bird, flower, or butterfly. Or a photo shoot and bow making. Now my sweet grandkids...maybe. They are the best kids ever!
So anyway, I've realized I've missed blogging and I'm going to TRY...yes I said keep up better. But I'm not promising you won't get tired of seeing and reading the same things over and over. That's my life....filled with good but ordinary things.

08/09/10 Miles' Birthday Photo Shoot!

Well I took birthday pictures of Miles. He's going to be 1 on the 17th! I bought this old high chair at a resale shop not knowing exactly what I would do with it. I just liked the style and the color of it. When I got home, Mike said that would be perfect for 1st birthday photos. And it was!! I love it and how cute Miles looks in it. I would have got him a party hat but he WILL NOT wear a hat. So Ashley got these cupcakes in these bright colors and we thought he would go crazy eating and smashing them. He usually loves sweets and eats everything you give him. But no, not today..... He tasted a little tiny bit of icing with his finger. That's bite, no putting it on his head, not grabbing it with his hands...nothing. Nothing except this sweet smile that is. He's adorable and so sweet. I love you Miles!

And here is what happened when Ashley tried to "make" him take a bite....he cried and cried!!
