Here’s a little teaser of what’s incorporated in the new logo : )
This past Friday I got to hang out with Coopy all afternoon !! My sister had “Shawnee Night” with her cheer team so we went to watch and boy did we have a blast! I took a few candid shots (as best I could while chasing little Coop around a football field !) and shared a few munchkin donuts with him : ) Enjoy the pictures !!
Happy Monday Morning !! A few weeks ago I got a little black card in the mail that looked like this:
Do you know what this is??? It’s the Starbucks GOLD card. Come on people, it’s the little things : )
It amazes me how certain things, people, situations can set me off on a total spin. My mood can change drastically based on what someone else says or does in a matter of seconds…but I’m WORKING ON IT. It’s amazing how some situations make their way upon me and I get so caught up in the moment that I don’t even think what might be right or wrong about it… but I’m WORKING ON IT.
It’s a part of me I don’t understand. It’s a part of me I want to change. It’s a part of me I’m WORKING on.
I like…I want to please people. So much so that I forget about what I need…what I want for myself. I become consumed with the need to make sure everyone else is happy. I become consumed with making sure I am doing everything right for them.
We weren’t given this life to focus solely on others. We were given this life to live. I have been faced with yet another challenge in my life. Yet another change. Call it a struggle, call it fear but this life isn’t always easy and the cards we’re handed aren’t always what we want.
As I come to terms with this latest turn of events, I’m also trying to find who it is I want to be. Where it is I want to go and how far I am willing to reach for it. I am facing the true unknown for the first time. I have been thrown into this obstacle to come out successful, to come out a better person.
So challenge number one for me, starting right here and now, with the internet as my witness I am vowing to think before I speak, breath before I act, and ask myself is this really what I want? Will this make ME happy?
I’m working on it.
I can NOT believe that little miss Lessi has started SCHOOL!! She got big waaaaay too fast! I still think of her as the little baby I spent many nights holding until she was deeply sleeping. The little girl I had to beg to say GG because she thought it was funny to torture me! The little girl I still hear say ‘love you’ in a whisper when I’m walking out the door. Last week was Lessi’s first day of school and she LOVES it!! I am so glad I was there to capture it! Love you Lessi girl!!!
5 days before my sister went back to school we decided to do a “back to school” shoot. As always with my sister, it was a PRODUCTION and she was the STAR of the show! We also brought along Erin (they are like 2 peas in a pod!) and my mom, who I managed to get a few shots of as well!! Enjoy and HAPPY BACK TO SCHOOL!!
and a few OUTTAKES of course….
One of the best parts of September are the FALL PREMIERS!! I LOVE when the shows I watch finally come back (although, I am sad to see my summer shows go). This year I’m watching a few favorites and a few new ones.
1. Castle – this is my all time favorite show and I can NOT wait to see what happens this year!
2. Private Practice – another top show
3. Hart of Dixie – I started watching this last year when I learned my favorite OC star, Rachel Bilson, would be playing the main character
4. Grey’s Anatomy
5. Go On – a new one this year
6. Up All Night
7. Gossip Girl
8. Malibu Country – new one this year
9. 666 Park Avenue – possible new one this year
What are YOU watching this fall??
Jess is one of my sisters closest friends from school, so when her mom called me up and said she wanted to schedule a photo shoot I was thrilled!! The newest addition to the Closson family is Grayson, their adorable puppy. He was so good and I couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather! Enjoy the photos of Jess and Grayson and leave them some lovin’ !!
