28 years

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

28 years ago today, my mom and dad joined their hearts and lives together forever. They made a promise to love each other always and to never give up on one another. They’ve done just that. Thanks for showing me how to love and how to be loved. Happy Anniversary Mom [...]

a “flash” from the past

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

I was going through some old pictures today and came across these silly shots and thought that it would be fun to share them. This is me (age 12), my brother, Logan (age 8), and our dear mom.
Is that a two headed monster?
I remember trying to plan each pose just before the [...]

black and white party time

Friday, September 5th, 2008

I returned home today to find a lovely flower arrangement waiting to greet me with a note that read…”I never properly thanked you for the beautiful shower and wonderful reading at the wedding. I feel so honored to have you as my cuz. Hope these add a little color to your day! [...]

not a grey area

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Do not adjust your screen…this is an actual photo. It was not taken with black and white film nor was it converted to black and white with a photo editing program. I am throwing my dear cousin, Lizzie, a bridal shower next Sunday. The theme…classic black and white. I have [...]

wee gifts

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I’m still reflecting on my visit to Nashville. Somewhere amongst the four pairs of shoes, bathing suit, and cowboy hat, I managed so squeeze in a few goodies for the little people I was about to see. Living so far away enables a sense of distance between family members…especially in the minds of children. I [...]

songs of my heart

Monday, July 21st, 2008

My television has been blasting tunes from the County Music Television channel all day in hopes that it will take be back…even if only for a moment. My trip to Nashville, TN, home of country music, filled my heart with many different types of songs this past week. Songs that are dedicated [...]

love birds

Saturday, July 5th, 2008

Today I am headed off to an engagement party for my cousin, Courtney. I was told by my aunt that this was not a gift giving event and to save the presents for her bridal shower. I currently have a lovely pink, yellow, and brown patterned fabric laying across my studio floor just [...]

make a wish

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

June has been a month full of birthday celebrations. After taking the “handmade pledge” in my mind, I have spent many hours in my studio doing my best to create pretty little things for the ones I love. This is what I have come up with so far…
June 6th marked the 27th birthday of my [...]

summer

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

It’s finally here…the first day of summer. Its arrival, yet again, has presented itself at the most opportune time. My responsibilities at work have been put on hold leaving plenty of time for me to do the things that I enjoy most: indulge in long days filled with relaxation and the sweet sound of birds [...]

golden dreams

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Today I had the opportunity to spend the morning at Golden Dreams Therapeutic RIding Center in Middleburg, VA where my cousin, Christie, works as a Recreational Therapist for individuals with special needs. Coincidentally, and by no work on our part, I happen to provide speech therapy to a young girl who receives horseback riding [...]

jumping in

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Well, here I am. I’ve officially jumped into the world wide web of blogging. I’ve been dipping my toes in for quite some time as I’ve enjoyed visiting blogs of all sorts. Thanks to a very HTML savvy friend, Kevin, I am now able to partake in the posting frenzy. So…who [...]
