Valentines Day is just around the corner and today we had to decorate boxes for school……..I dread projects like this! I know that sounds horrible, but let me explain. I know that the kids should do their own boxes and I should let them use their creativity, but sometimes their creativity just doesn’t look very good and I want them to have cute boxes to take to school but I don’t want to do them either. Well I was very proud of them both today, I did help some with wrapping the box but they did a great job of coming up with cute ideas……and they kept repeating “less is more” which is something I always tell them when doing projects like this and stressed before they started today. So today was the boxes, tomorrow the valentines!
I wish I could start by telling you that photography has been my dream and some cute story about my very first camera, but honestly growing up my dream was to be a MOM. I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a Mom, I wanted a dozen children or more! And while the dozen part has changed, the dream of being a MOM has not, that is my greatest joy. I have 4 beautiful children that bring me such happiness and leave me speechless and amazed. I have twins that are 8 a very active 3 year old and a new precious little baby too! It was through my first love that I found my second love. As a mom I loved taking my children to get their pictures taken and after my third baby was born I decided to see what I could do with a "good" camera so I picked up my first DSLR camera in May of 2010 and fell in love with the art of photography!
Besides loving my children and photography a couple of other things about me are.....I LOVE my family and live next door to my brother and my parents and I am secretly hoping that my children also build a house on "the family compound" when they grow up, I am a diet coke addict and eat way to many sweets in a day, I shop too much and save too little, I believe in dreaming big and living each day to the fullest, I have known the heartache of losing a child and the joy of God's miracles first hand, I love girls nights out as well as quiet nights in with my family, If I can find a good book I lose myself in it and then miss my new friends when its over, and I am completely happy with where my life has been and where it is going!
