Cheap & Easy Tricks for Halloween Decor

Decorating for Halloween It’s mid- October, and you’re either a parents who long ago checked ‘ Halloween Decorating’ off your list or or you’re like me scrabbling just before the holiday! After repeated pleas from my daughter, I knew an attempt at decorating was required. But Halloween decor doesn’t need to be expensive or time...

What the Dog Taught Me

In the beginning, I wondered who would be potty trained first.  As if that was actually a real question? Of course the dog would train first.  Dogs are easy. Children & Husbands are the ones who need a shock collar. Kidding! I’ve never actually considered using a shock collar… it’s just a funny notion to...

Tattoo the Brand

Lying back on the chair I held my right wrist tightly, attempting to relax as the tattoo artist traced the precise lines of silhouetted birds onto my pale, sensitive skin. As his needle buzzed, I allowed myself to come to terms with my new identity; single mom, divorcee, ex-wife. This was the first moment in a long...

An Inability to Publish

It happened without intention… At some point over the summer, I realized I was having trouble hitting the ‘publish’ button. I was agonizing over which images to accompany my words.. Frustrated, I would give up & instead play make-believe with my daughter. My website was hacked two years ago.  While that seems like a long time ago, my...

She is Entering the ‘Terrible Three’s’

Emmaline skips around the living room. She is singing to herself, something random & made-up, probably to the turn of ‘Twinkle-twinkle little star’…    I could simply watch her for hours.  I smile at her gestures, completely honest… uninhibited, simple & innocent.  She is perfectly innocent & I can think of nothing but what I...

Battling the Bite: Spreading Awareness on Lyme Disease

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month {don’t be afraid; instead KNOW how to protect & prevent} I pulled the first tick from my baby’s delicate skin today.  It was a tiny spec that looked like a freckle, but I knew instantly it didn’t belong.  I took out a magnifying glass & a sharp pair of pointed...

Thankfully Yours

My Emmaline loves Elmo & Dora.  She enjoys bellowing out the ‘ABCs’ with anyone who’s so inclined & humming along to most any song she hears.  We play ‘peek-a-boo’ & read favorite books.  She loves milk & cheese.. peas & broccoli.. and is usually happy at meal time- no more throwing food.   At bedtime, we sing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ together (something I...

Losing a Furry Friend

it’s been a week since we put our furry friend to sleep… & a month since I’ve written anything on this blog. I found that every time I started a blog post, I wanted to tell the story of Tsunga- the first friend we made when we moved to Kansas City & the best darn...

Love in the Time of Kodachrome

The break-up is always harder when you realize in later years … just how much you miss the relationship but not necessarily the girl. This distracting epiphany presented itself in the middle of a wedding a few years ago while shooting some bridal portraits. She posed for me in a fantastically rustic soybean field, mottled...
