Drum roll please...........

One of my main peep chicks is spreading her wings a bit. This woman is one of my phenomenal friends, actually I can count my women friends on one hand, this woman is creative, generous, thoughtful and just damn fun.

So this phenomenal woman has just announced several photo mini sessions in the month of October. For those who are not familiar with the notion, it is where you and your family can come down for an on location, 15 - 20 minutes photo session where it is all about you. How many times in your day do you get to focus on you? Not many right? This is perfect opportunity and trust me when I say you will not be disappointed. If you need more proof of how awesome this photography opportunity is visit Moompphotography to see more of her talent and creativity!

And where are you going to put those lovely family pictures once you have gone to the mini sessions? Let me spread the word, not only can you get fantastic pictures the Divine Miss H will take those family shots and create Christmas Cards with envelopes to send out for the holidays! Listen, if you have not already clicked over, then I may have to come to your house and smack your hands a bit. Now, you have no excuse, family pictures and Christmas card in one, easy fell swoop. It don't get better than that baby! WHHOO YYAAHHH! BADA BING!

Now for the other wonderful, creative women in my life. Miss G and Vitamin D, these women are way beyond anything I have ever put my pathetic finger too. Miss G is the long arm quilting bandit of the coastal lands, so sassy, so confident, so incredibly talented. Check her here AND here! Vitamin D is a local bad ass all around creative D to the I to the V to the A let us all say D.I.V.A. of hand made cards, quilts, scrap booking, purse making, working the little details out! This chickalicious is FIERCE! Check her here AND here!

So, with all this good stuff going on why are you still hanging around here? Go forth and create with my friends!!!!!!!

The long and winding road

My mate is 40, his travels are plentiful, his travels are adventurous. He is rugged, he is soft, he is daddy, he is husband.

His road has taken him many places but my favorite travel of his has brought him to me and our children. Bub, your greatest adventure is yet to come, yes, you have climb rocks in Yosemite, slept in snow, battled deer on a dark, desolate highway (cool wind in my hair, warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air, up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light, oh wait I got sidetracked), but having three kids five year old and under, you might as well be fighting a Kodiak bear.

Your birth is a reminder of someone I hold dear to my heart, it is a special day of all the days that you should be reminded you are loved. Thank you for being here, thank you for the beautiful children, thank you for being a part of my life, even though sometimes I want you to go fishing.

Happy Birthday, my Love, Happy Birthday. You have sown something wonderful, reap the rewards of your bounty.

Pictures. Pictures, Pictures

There is a lot going on with our family, so this is really a quick check in with my peeps. I have put together a slide show because it is this is an easy peasy way of showing you all a bunch of pictures, which I personally am a fan of, without the struggle of embedding them in the post.

I am trying to enhance my mad computer skillz, photog skillz, and in general life.

So enjoy, I will check in soon. Lots of good stuff swimming in my head needing a big release and share with y'all.
