Take Time to Remember yourself

Lately I've been so deep in thought. I think the most important thing you can do in this life is to live for yourself and to make sure you are always doing what makes you happy. So many people get so involved with their partners, their kids, their jobs, etc. I'm not saying those things are not important. My family is everything to me. I'm just saying that just because you have those things doesn't mean you can't feed your soul too. You only live once. You only have one soul, one heart. Take the time to grow. :)

Farm with my friends

there is this produce farm down the street from my friend Auroras house. She helps the farmer out every week. We all went down there the other day to help and lots of my friends showed up! It was so much fun!

All in one Sunday We......

Went to the Japanese Frienship Garden, The Phx Art Museum, Last chance to shop, Duck and Decanter to eat the best sandwhiches in the world, and then took a bike ride out to the mountains to do a shoot. Sigh. What an eventful day! I felt like a tourist! The garden was so beautiful! It isn't very big but its so perfect for a picnic or a romantic stroll. The museum was awesome! There was this huge painting and we tried to blend in with it. We got in trouble from the security guard but who cares. I loved the paintings there. They were as bis as me and I could just stare at them forever. My mom watched Larz so I could take some pictures of my friends bikes for his sisters fundraiser. We rode out to the lost duchmans place by the base of the mountain. It was an awesome day. Click on the squares to see the pics bigger. :)

Most thankful for.......

My Larz. He fills my soul with so much love on a daily basis. I sometimes, like any other mother, find myself feeling frustrated. I want SO much for him. I want him to find happiness more than anything. Internal peace. This world is so polluted in so many ways. I guess for now I will just enjoy him being little and somewhat innocent and wait for the day he brings a girl home with black lipstick and a nose ring. sigh. Rob can handle that one. :)

I was laying in the lawn today thinking about a lot of things about life. I seem to do it quite often actually. The clouds were drifting by so slowly and beautifully. I missed them. Sometimes I think way too deep for my own good and today was one of those days. I am happy to be alive. I happy to have overcome certain addictions in my life. I am so lucky to notice all of the beauty in this world the way I do. It seems like i notice such tiny details on an everyday basis. I don't know where I am going with this post, I just like to babble on and on about the way I feel. I still get so amazed when I look around me. How do people get so distracted by life that they never notice the beauty that is all around them? I am trying to figure out my purpose right now. I know so many people think they know that answer but they dont know MY purpose. Only I have the key to that door but i seemed to have misplaced it. I am itching to be more. I am feeling the need to find more inside of me. I am always reaching for more in this little life of mine. My little beautiful bubble I have made. sigh. Do you ever feel like something is waiting for you? Like you are meant to do something big? i feel that way but I don't know what it is thats calling me. ITs frustrating. Sorry. I like to ramble on.

I love babies!

I did a shoot of my little sisters best friend and her daughter. Let me just say, this little angel took my breath away with her perfection. She was so beautiful and smiley. We did it at my moms house since her backyard is amazingly beautiful right now. :)

Midnight suprise!

So Rob and I are in bed, chatting away about stuff before bed. Right in the middle of his sentence Rob goes "Owwwww!" I immediately jump out of bed and turn the lights on. Rob said "something just bit me!" I'm panicking and looking around for anything. Robs face was classic. He was so scared and riled up. He flips the sheets back and there it is. A SCORPION!!!!! In our bed! I couldn't believe it. After sending him to his watery grave in the toilet, we looked everywhere in the room for more. I was so grossed out and scared to even get back in there. Rob has never been stung by a scorpion. I have so I knew what he was in for. Poor Rob. Ha. He got stung right on the back of his knee. I basically ordered him to put a bag of frozen veggies on his leg but he only did for 5 minutes. He's so stubborn. He told me this morning that he didn't sleep very well at all. I've been stung before when I lived at home. I remember stepping on one and after seeing what it was, I ran into my dads room yelling. I scared my dad. ha. He grabbed his dress shoe and came running behind me to kill it. He thought something serious had happened when I came into his room. Anyways. After you get your house sprayed, check your sheets.

My Heaven on Earth

My friends and I go to fossil creek AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE during the summer. We hiked back once and found our own little spot and let me tell you, the pictures dont even do it justice. It is heavenly. Fossil creek is up near pine and strawberry. It takes less than 2 hours for me to get there usually. Well this time, since it's just the first if summer, there wasn't anyone there. The water was so still and clear. It was breathtaking! It was too cold to swim in. I jumped in once and just about had a heart attack. I got burnt though. My friend amy crought her flute and I brought my camera. Enjoy.

My birthday girl

Ryen is 5 years old today! I can't believe it's been 5 years already! I still remember her arrival like it was yesterday. And now she is growing up into a beautiful little woman. Her family asked her if she wanted a party or a vacation and she chose a vacation. They are going to this railroad adventure place I think. I know she will have a blast! I am so proud of her for who she is. She is so smart and beautiful. I am so lucky to have her in my life still. She is so special to me! I am also so thankful for her family and how amazing they are! They are the perfect parents, seriously. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LITTLE ANGEL!
