PHOTOGRAPHY . FAMILY . MOTHERHOOD & MORE!

Fine Art Friday … Rise Up

The weather this week is somber.  Somber is one of my daughter’s Caesar Vocabulary words that she’s been studying this week and today is her test.  Shouldn’t be too hard to remember what somber means on a day like this.  Sure could use a bit of sunshine around here to…

Things I’m Learning to be Okay With

The more I mature (okay okay get older but I like mature better) the more I have learned that there are going to be things that I am just going to have to be okay with.  Things that are the way they are.  So here is the little bit of progress…
