Nature, Art, and a Little Recycling, Too

Have I mentioned that I’m kinda in love with my new blog ‘format’!? Well, I am (and, I’ve probably mentioned it a time, or ten 😉 ). It’s really fun to sit down and just write about the things that I’m excited about. 🙂 I feel like I would get super annoyed with writing if…

One Bowl Toasting Bread

2019 is all about the word ‘calm’ for me. My mental health needs calm more than it needs almost anything else these days; so, instead of an personal resolution, I’m just doing that trendy ‘word’ thing. (I have career resolutions, yes. That’s a little different though, and for different reasons.) I’m not very good at…

Some Small Business Shots

Hello again! As I mentioned in my last blog–this past weekend, I was working with a small business, Lillians of Anoka, to get the owner some fresh photos. She has hired a marketing team to come in and help her out with some social media stuff, and she is also planning to freshen up her…

Forest Lake Family Photos

My sister and I have been saying ‘we’re gonna do it this year’, for a couple years now. And, just like a lot of things in life–we talk a big game, but, time gets away from us. (Well, it doesn’t get ‘away’. It just goes other places. It goes to the kids, to parents, to…

Lino Lakes Family Photography

All right! Here’s family two, of three, to close out my 2018. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the Blaine, Lino Lakes, and Forest Lake area lately–and, these guys are no exception to that. I’ve been working with this, awesome, family since long before the third little one came into the picture. (Hah!…

Blaine Family Photo Shoot

Hello and happy 2019! I’m just over here reading a bunch of great blogs that nicely wrap up 2018–while, also realizing that I’m not fully done with my 2018 posts. Oops. Maybe by the end of this week I’ll get them finished up–I just have a couple of sessions left to get on the blog…

The Hike That Almost Wasn’t

Just poppin’ in for a minute (or five), here tonight. In my last blog, I made mention that I needed a head clearing hike this weekend. Well, I got it. I squeezed it in bright, and early, on Saturday morning (not really, it was at like 11). It was so cold out–I almost didn’t get…

Outside to Play

So far, the winter here, in Minnesota, has been pretty tame. Not much snow, pretty mild temps–all, in all, it’s been super simple. I’m a winter lover, so snow, cold, ice–I love it all. (Except for driving in it. I don’t do that.) Ya know what I kinda don’t love though? Getting little kids dressed…

New Years Resolutions

More random blogging, you say!? Okay! I’m up for it. 🙂 It’s relevant to the season anyway–it’s all about New Years Resolutions. For 2019–my resolution is my career. I think I made mention of that a few blogs ago. It’s time to get moving again on what I do, and, with the turn of the…

My ‘New’ Christmas Decor

Two, ‘for-fun’, blogs in a row; I love it. It’s really fun to just sit down and just write a bit. I haven’t had a blog where I just write since that terrible one from the mid-2000’s (I refer to that one as, ‘she-who-will-not-ever-be named’.) This blog, in-particular, has taken me nearly three weeks to…
