Well a lot has gone down since my last posting! As you guys can see my website has changed up a bit. I have kick started my photography again and am combining both worlds! I am so excited to see where photography will take me this time around. I had put it off for a couple of years and just recently figured out that it is what I have been missing all this time. I feel more inspired in all aspects of life and like I said in my last posting, I feel complete! I forgot how natural holding a camera in my hand feels and how it gives me a rush that nothing else in this world can. I will be posting full sets of the shoots I do on my photography blog.

Can you believe the picture of my "driveway" above? It went from fall too winter overnight! I don't know about anyone else in my area but I sure was not prepared for this crap! We got about 24 inches of snow in about 24 hours. We have been shoveling a path for the car but have a snow blower on the way!
I have been doing "OK" with my weight-loss. Nothing to really inform you guys on. I keep gaining and losing the same 10 pounds and have been getting very frustrated. I also have not been happy with myself and know I need to get real. But it is nothing that I have not said before. I have been keeping up with my workout routine but still have not been staying strict with my eating habits. I do so good for about a week and then I fade out and end up making horrible choices. Which then escalade me into the black hole of fast food doom. I don't even have an excuse for it! It is just poor decision making on my end. Something's got to give! It's a vicious cycle that I need to snap out of because the more I cheat the more I feel it is ok and the more I feel it is ok the worse my progress gets and the worse my progress gets the more it takes away what I have already accomplished! Hopefully in my next posting I will have some better news to share because I need to figure out something that works for me and my current situation. You can talk the talk but you need to walk the walk!
I am excited about this free photo book we won. I decided to make it a wedding photo book and am very happy with how it turned out! I thought I'd share because well, LOOK IT! :-D
(Picture below) - My favorite tree takes on Mother Nature! I had taken the last picture not too long ago when I got my new camera and realized that I have taken pictures of this tree for the past 4 years and put together this! Weirdly, I was generally in the same spot every time I took a picture. If I ever move I wish I could dig it up and take it with me! But I guess I will always have this :-)
