A Hello And A Goodbye

Hello hello, how do you do? This just might be the last post on this little blog of mine. I've enjoyed writing and posting my photography on here so much. It almost feels like a small home to me, worn in just the right places. To be writing the last post is a little bittersweet, but I know I'm doing the right thing. Don't worry though, my writing isn't over. Actually, it is just starting. Since my life is changing and taking a new form I thought it would be good to have a fresh, clean slate to write on. I have started a new blog over on Wordpress called Rooftop Secrets. I'm really excited about this blog and can't wait to break it in. 
Before I leave, I would just like to thank you all so much for sticking around here and reading my writing. All your comments have meant the world to me. Your support has been wonderful. I hope you will join me over at my new blog. I'm excited to see where the future takes it.

Birthday, Birthday, Birthday

Filed Under: Photography 

This past weekend was a sweet one. I got to take photos of my cousins cake decorating birthday party. It was very fun to help all the kids with their cakes and photograph the special moments. I also think its safe to say that afterward, all the kiddos were so hyped up on sugar that they were all very photogenic.  Which made it fun. :)

 I hope you all enjoy the pictures.

A Little Trip | Chicago, IL

Filed Under: Travel, Photography 

A few weeks ago I got the chance to go to Chicago and see Disney's Beauty and the Beast on broadway. It was a lovely little trip and I enjoyed the play a lot. I thought I'd share a few photos with you that I took. It was fun getting to carry my camera around the busy streets.

I hope you enjoy.

Crazy Little Adventure Called Life

There are so many beautiful little moments in life.  Even when everything is messy, crazy and hectic. 

I’m finding out that life will never be perfect and it will never go smoothly like you hope. There will aways be something that you wish you could change.  It will never be picture perfect like you see in magazines or on the internet.  


I’m learning though, that being able to still find the joy in life.   Being able to give thanks in the midst of the storm, will fulfill your heart more than any other perfect kind of life would. 

 Too long I have wasted my days wishing my life could be different. Pouring over images I see of other peoples lives.  Lives that look perfect and pleasing.  I’m finding out though, that this is just a deception and a waist of time.  

What’s life with out a little messiness?  What’s life with out a rain shower?  Finding the joy, the love, and the beautiful small things in a crazy messy life is such a wonderful little adventure.
