Update on Life

Hey guys! I am alive! It's been a while.

I have SO much updating to do: session previews, full sessions, new recipes and Project 365. However, more importantly is my sanity and day-to-day peace and joy.

Lately I have felt overwhelmed with life. My thought process has been so chaotic, it's unbelievable. I simply desire to have my sanity and peace back. I got off facebook last week and I hope to stay away from the facebook world for a little while longer. It is actually quite a relief not having to read so many updates. I even turned my phone off for a solid week! I did not even charge it, so that I could only use it during emergencies. I cannot believe how much that helped me gain peace.

I am sure many of you who read this know that I got hitched back in August. I feel like I am re-learning how to live life. I am learning what routine works best for me. Being A.D.D. and very much an introvert, it makes it a difficult and aggravating process. However, life is getting better. I am getting the hang of things.


I certainly pray and hope that your days have been full of much joy and happiness!

You will hear more from me now. I have much to post and much to say!

God Bless!

Ice Cream Delight

I just created the best ice cream desert I have ever had! That's not to say that I am the inventor. I just came across it ;) I had to share!

Not the best picture of it, I know, but my webcam was the closest thing to me at the moment!

So, here it is...

Vanilla Ice Cream
Graham Crackers
Oreos (I had the cheap oreo-like cookies which I had already.)
Chocolate Syrup

Just crumble the crackers/cookies on top and drizzle the syrup and coffee on last. Soooo good!

Project 365///Days 30-41

I am SO behind and I feel awful! However, I HAVE been taking pictures.
I just haven't posted any until now. :( Forgive me!

Anyways, without further ado...

Day 30.365//Nikon. Tuesdays are all about the WesHouse. I go eat lunch there, send my hubby off to work, then I come right back to hang out for the rest of the day. Jam session. ♥ friend Ben playing the guitar.

Day 31.365//Nikon. I wanted to practice playing with the white balance on my camera. My bedroom at my parents house has AWFUL lighting unless I am right by the window, and even then it can be gross. It always looks sooooo orange. However, playing with the white balance can produce THIS!!!! ...this is at night, only using the overhead light. ♥ the lack an orange glaze

Day 32.365//Nikon. Playing with my white balance again...but this time, thinking of my husband. The white heart basket was used to hold our favors at our wedding. (The 6th of February is our 6month!) ♥

Day 33.365//Nikon. I am dealing with A LOT of drama, which I am not used to. I usually try to avoid it as much as possible. ...but when it does occur, I turn to the only source of TRUE wisdom I know...Jesus.

Day 34.365//Nikon. I am helping my mom clean out a cabinet in her garage. I ran across a box FULL of my old writings. I used to write books, lots of books. It's just like my mom said, I would write five chapters, five pages each...25 total pages. We used to have this program that put pictures and cool fonts on whatever I wanted to create. A kid-based program. I don't remember what it was called, but I remember using it ALL the time! I was such a dork! Haha!

Day 35.365//Nikon. Apparently I am really bored, and I miss my husband. :) ...and I have paper in front of me?

Day 36.365//Nikon. I heard a noise outside and I wanted to see what it was. Sometimes things across the street sound like they are at my doorstep (hate that). I saw myself in my car window. Eck! I look curvaceous! Haha!

Day 37.365//Nikon. These to make a lot of noise. They screech and scream. They throw twigs at my house. I went and got my camera when I saw him near my front door. I think he was thinking about jumping on me honestly. He kept staring at me...and getting closer. Scary!

Day 38.365//Nikon. February, yes. Georgia hasn't hit winter yet. It's 78 degrees outside...tanning weather.

Day 39.365//Nikon. Made a frappuccino. A heart always has to go on top, but I still don't know why. I haven't made one of these in a loooong time. SO GOOD! ♥♥

Day 40.365//Nikon. Jam session and band practice at the WesHouse aka the Wesley Foundation.
This is Chris...he's an AWESOME drummer!

Day 41.365//Nikon. Just finished practicing some guitar. Some Amy Winehouse, Fleetwood Mac and MoTown. Then I felt like playing with my camera. A picture of my engagement ring...trying to get it to stay standing up behind the strings...difficult task.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! :)
