A Personal Struggle

  • Being Driven vs. Contentment

This post has been on my heart and my mind for a while. When I blog posts like this… it starts as a random thought… and then I start paying attention to these certain aspects of our life and then normally something sparks the need to write it. This week this process happened rather quickly. I had a thought a few days ago about contentment vs. being driven.

Engagement Session | What to Wear

  • Wedding Wednesday | Outfit Inspiration

First of all, I know it’s not Wednesday. I may still be thrown off a little by our long trip to a different time zone but I DO know what day it is! The honest truth is this… this post was supposed to go up yesterday… on WEDNESDAY. However, I was speaking at a local high school’s photo class and I didn’t have time to get this post together before walking out of the door. So, I’m blogging a Wedding Wednesday post on a Thursday and I’m sure that’s going to drive some people CRAZY!! ha! Oh well.

  • Bokeh & Molly

came into our lives back in mid January and Bokeh boy didn’t know what to do. For two years, he had been the star of the show… the one and only bichpoo in the family. Now there were two and he wasn’t the only puppy that his grandparents loved. I have never seen a dog act more like a human than when Bokeh showed his jealously of Molly! It was so obvious that he wasn’t loving this new life change one bit!! They are technically brother and sister and so it makes sense that they wouldn’t get along immediately.
