"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it
is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of
course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want
to escape from these things." ~T. S. Eliot

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you
did, but people will NEVER forget how you make them feel ~ Maya Angelou

I've always been drawn to things that display class, glamour, and beauty

Timeless Christmas

At times, I feel like I look at things in black and white. Even though I love color there are times when some things just look better in black and white.

This morning as I got up and the tree was all lit up, my camera couldn't find the colors I was seeing so I changed to black and white and the tree at that time took on a different feel and I was thrilled with the results.

Our christmas morning.

If only the tree would of FLUFFED like I imagined it too! :(

Here are some days before Christmas and Christmas Eve..

RYLEIGH,helping wrapping Paker's gifts

PARKER, playing with Ryleigh's Pig while we wrap his gifts!

PARKER, playing with the cars!

ALEXA, Christmas Eva at Tami's!

And...Here are some of the decorations in and around Tami's neighborhood. :)

I had the ISO's on the highest cause..of course it was dark..but I do like how this turned out in all...looks old school.

This is really sad I know but I've been really busy lately..and have not really had a whole lot of time to be on my blog..I check everyday but have nothing to blog about...sad cause I love my blog and I can get creative in here but with all of Ryleigh's test she's having right now, and Parker getting tubes in and all...it's been very busy around here and were getting ready to paint the extra bedroom and getting ready for christmas and baking and trying to stay sane....yeah!!!!

I do appreciate all of you that do visit my blog and I promise I'll be better next year..trying to get a slide show together of all the pictures i've done for 2008 and post before New Years so wish me luck...

If anyone is up for getting together and doing a shoot, I've been dying to do one at a certain location..anyone want their pictures taken and is up for just a fun day with me?? My camera is even missing me...haha

Thanks again for visiting and I will be back and I'm sure all of you are pretty busy yourselves...but before I go here's a few of my favoite picks of the year and I want to wish you all a Safe and Happy Holiday and a Blessed New Year!

Home Sweet Home!!

I pride myself on not letting things beat me, and when I found this song on Brooke blog it gave me a new reason to be thankful and how much I do have to be thankful for. It's by Lenka



"Every photo needs a past, a present and a future. It needs to answer the questions of who they are, where they came from and where they're going." That is even the case for photos that don't contain any people in them at. So take the time to sit down and look at your art. How does it make you feel? What does it make you think about?

Girls Night

Had a girls weekend and we had a blast and got to catch up on alot of things over night and had some crazy times last night. Hope to have my computer back and up before to long and get some of the pictures up. It's so refreshing after you've gotten to spend time with those that mean the most to you and wished that others had time or lived closer to share with us. Maybe next time :)

Whenever we get together, we usually have a good time and it's been awhile cause Tami's been travel'n with Ray and she's only home for short spurts so, the next time she's home we are planning a "Girls Nite"!! No children or men allowed were going to have a makeup session, then guess what were going to do??? go ahead I'll give you 3 seconds...go....Photo session..Yep we've been so out of touch lately that we decided it's time to just have a Girly night and do it all..Then it's movie time and seeing that I didn't get to see Sex in the City movie, That is the theme I think our Girl's night should be..what do you think?? Fashion, Hot Fashion, and girly talk all night. Maybe some margarita's or the drink of the night..Amy needs to be there she's the bartender!!!

Here is a few of us from yesterday..For being last minute and a long day..we did pretty good!!! Thanks Jenn for snapping them for us, nice shots you got too!!!

I like the b and w better than the color!!!
