Being Brave

Hey Everyone!

I am trying to be brave and start up one of my interests: photography. I have been taking a few shots here and there, practically begging people to be my subjects and models. Thank heavens I have wonderful family members who graciously endure a photo session with me for an evening of their lives. :) It's been challenging and super fun, but I'd sure appreciate some feedback (honest but not too brutal) before I start my own site and try to get more people on the books. If it doesn't work out: oh well. Life goes on and I can always learn to knit.

Lake Powell and Park City


This last week and a half has been super fun! Wes and I were able to leave Cache with my family for four days so that we could go to Lake Powell with his family and our friends. Honestly, guys, it is my heaven on earth. I love Lake Powell. It is so fun and also so relaxing to me. Some of my best memories are from there.

This week we were able to go to Park City for one night with my family. We have our cousins from Oklahoma in town along with the regular cousins, cousins from Florida, and cousins from Canada. Can I just say it is one big party?! I love it. So we went to stay up there just for a little break and some fun shopping, swimming (Cache's first time in a pool!), and laughing. I love my family and I love summer time. It's the best.

You will notice that Cache had more fun in his sink pool than the swimming pool. We are easy to please. :)

My New Bathroom

Hey all! I promised pictures so here you go. I am not quite done because I hope to change the counter tops and flooring at some point *(and add red and black towels)* but it is mostly finished! Here you go!

BEFORE: ugly peach-tan walls with no flava. The knobs were old-school too.

AFTER: A "London Mist" Grey on the walls, black and red accent colors, with brushed nickle hardware. (I still need to frame the mirror with molding too!)

Oh no. Cache can climb.

Enough said. I came to the stairs just in time to see Cache turn and almost die. I caught him. Our lives are ten times more complicated now.

I love America

I am so grateful for this wonderful country that we live in. I know that God divinely inspired the brave men and women of this country to fight for a free place that is home to all of those with a dream and some hard work in their bones. I am so grateful to live here with the family that I have and with the opportunities and choices I have available to me.

This fourth of July has been super fun, with many family parties on both sides of the family and the chance for Cache to watch his first fireworks. HE WAS MESMERIZED! :) I'm so blessed to be able to raise my kids in this great country. God bless the USA.
