I don’t usually edit my photographs this way… but I was trying new things and when I saw the photos this way… I knew that’s how my mind’s eye was seeing it that day when I took them. Why hadn’t I tried editing this way before? Why hadn’t I seen that new tool in the […]

….that's what I would call the past 8 months really. I'm coming to really love texas. I feel at home here. I do miss North Carolina but it's amazing how much a place can become home when your family is here.  And they do say once a texan, always a texan. So maybe it's just […]

While I don't think I'm doing the former as much as I should since we moved here. I have reconnected with several old friends.   Tiffany is one of those friends. We figured it out that we met when we were both 14 at a conference in Indianapolis. Became pen pals (I'm so going to […]

I love all his little newborn baby parts. :o)  Jack is such a good baby…… he Sleeps ALL THE TIME! which is great seeing as how he wasn't supposed to be born for another two weeks. He's eating okay but still needs to develop more in that area, we do a lot of coaxing for […]
