You know you want this cute little button! Grab it!

For Women


I wrote…erased…wrote again…erased some more, contemplated taking this blog down, contemplated starting an anonymous blog–I did so many things, except share the past year of my life with the rest of the interwebs.

I don’t regret it. But I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss it.

So, I’m pushing forward. Olivia is in first grade now (FIRST GRADE!) Sophia is in preschool (PRESCHOOL, PEOPLE!) We are having adventures every day, they make me laugh hysterically on a daily basis (oh you just wait) and they are just amazing (AMAZING) little people that I couldn’t be prouder or happier to raise.

The girls and I are now healthy, happy and okay. I’m sure things will leak out as I write, but I don’t want to give any base “here is what happened” post, as I feel I owe my daughters that privacy and respect.

Plus, I’m a classy lady and I am attempting to raise two classy (little) ladies. Writing anything more would be undignified.

I’m still taking photos–I’ve turned into a PTA, co-op preschool, volunteering, shuttling kids in the mini-van mom, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I love *most* of my life and the past year has knocked me down in ways I never thought imaginable, but I’ve picked myself back up and I’m starting to figure out who I am and I want I want out of life.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I’m a work in progress.

A photo dump might be appropriate. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Sophia started ballet. She then became a ballet-school drop-out after a few months. But at least she tried it!

I got a new camera in November. I spent a lot of time playing around with it.

I’ll do a summer re-cap in photos soon. I’m still editing most of them. One of the many things that took a hit in my life: the ability to quickly edit and post photos. But, it could be MUCH worse. I’m thankful for all I do have. And even if I don’t have everything I once thought I did, I have a LOT. I’m thankful, and I’ve missed you all!
