Project 365 – Happy Birthday!!!

I can’t believe I made it one year – 365 days of photos! It was much harder than I thought but for different reasons that I had imagined. Some days were easy, a birthday or special event, a celebration or just taking pictures of a beautiful day outdoors. Some days I had to get creative and search out something interesting to shoot a photo of, or just be creative trying to snap a candid shot of someone in my life. On some days I was just lazy and posted a lame photo – sorry! And some days were not so great and I had to struggle to find something positive to post as to not dwell on that bad day.

All in all this was a fun, insightful experience and I what I love most about it is that I find myself searching out the best part of my day on a subconscious level just to have something positive to end the day on. And although I am not going to continue with a daily photo, I still plan on chronicling all the fabulous adventures ahead for my family, my friends and myself.

So for now, here are some of the highlights from the last 365 days of my life – enjoy! 🙂

Science, Engineering & Growing Up

The science and engineering fair was tonight and Zach was engrossed in an array of motors, lights & moving parts. You could practically see the gears turning in his head!

On a side note… Rich taught him how to shave tonight. Sniff…sniff…sniff…where did my baby go?

18 Years Ago Today


I was nervous, anxious, scared and uncertain. I didn’t know what the future held but I knew that I planned to stand by my choices and decisions and do what I felt like what the best for my boy.

18 years later, it’s not much different. Looking back, there are things that I have said or done that I regret, but I feel in my heart, I tried to always do what I felt was the right thing at the time.

I hope that I am making the right decision, I hope that he will come through this stronger, wiser, more mature. I hope that he will come through this and become a man and see that everything I did, everything I still do, I do because I love him.
