Sandbox by the Sea

I’m working on a project for a Photographer/Author who is releasing two new books about Anna Maria Island in Florida. Right now I’ve just got a landing page up but the full site will be up soon. Check it out here:

Birthday Bash

We had a great time at Christa’s Birthday Bash. We shared the party with her oldest sister, Suzanne and everyone had a great time. Here’s a sneak-peek at the pictures.



Under Construction

Things are pretty messy around here right now. I’m redesigning my blog in hopes of spending much more time here! I took a snapshot of the old design to keep for old-times sake.

We Have a Birthday in the House!

I seriously have no idea how this happened, but my BEAUTIFUL daughter is 6 years old. She has grown up so much and I am so proud of the sweet young lady she is becoming. She has the most beautiful smile and the sweetest, most giving heart of any child I know. I am so thankful to get to be her mommy!

Breaking the Silence

My blog has been silent for nearly two years, short of one Christmas card where I hinted that some changes were happening in our lives. It’s not that I haven’t had anything to write about or that I lost interest or wasn’t having fun with my blog. On the contrary… There has been TONS to share and I think about writing often and I miss it A LOT (Holy run-on sentence Batman!). Life has just been crazy busy and I haven’t been able to muster time nor energy to write and post and maintain this poor blog.

Now I’m feeling a little restless. We’re on the verge of some major life changes and more than ever I want to keep things documented. On top of that, there are some things I feel led to share and it’s just too much for Facebook, so I will do it here. I will do a lot of catch-up posts – not that anyone will mind since I have no regular readers left.

So, to kick things off, here’s the most recent picture of my family.

Remember these two??? Yes, they are getting big! They start school in the fall!

And then there’s this guy…

Wait. What? I haven’t told you about him. Hmmmm…. That will definitely have to be it’s own post.

My next post will be about how I went from being a single (divorced) foster mom with two toddlers to a happily married mom of two amazing kids. See you then!
