My awesome chair...

I bought the most awesome chair ever at a thrift shop last week for $35 for photo shoot backgrounds.
I am in love.
Mike hates it. A lot.

I think I might move it into our bedroom...

Dear Tyler

Long ago you came to me, a miracle of firsts:
First smiles and teeth and baby steps, a sunbeam on the burst.
But one day you will move away
and leave me to your past,
and I will be left thinking of a lifetime of your lasts.

I never said good-bye to all
your yesterdays long passed.
So what about tomorrow-
will I recognize your lasts?

I look ahead and dream of days
that haven't come to pass.
But as I do, I sometimes miss
today's sweet, precious lasts....

My life keeps moving faster,
stealing precious days that pass.
I want to hold on longer-
want to recognize your lasts....

I've watched you grow and barely noticed
seasons as the pass.
If I could freeze the hands of time,
I'd hold on to your lasts.

Let me hold on longer, God,
to every precious last.

Excerpt from Let Me Hold you Longer, by Karen Kingsbury

Farm Fresh


This week's lesson in my photography class was on aperture. These tomato plants are right out of the camera...and thriving in the warm greenhouses.

I'm Baaack!

Tyler turned two yesterday! I can't believe how fast it has gone. Two really quick photos before I go to bed. Once again, I have stayed up way later than I wanted to! We went to Chuck E Cheeses on Sunday and I am not very happy with the way my photos turned out. It was pretty dark in there and I had to use my flash which is the quickest way to ruin a photo. Krista made Ty a tractor cake that he LOVED!

Yep, that's his tongue on the glass...pretty sure he will come down with some sort of illness this week.

More photos to come tomorrow.

Oh, I am really loving the song in the latest JC Penny commercials. Check it out...the song is Unbelievable by the Sleepy Rebels. The commercial has a remix version that I like a little bit better than the real song. Lucky me, itunes has both.
