Happy Friday friends and welcome to 2016! Hard to believe another year has come and gone. It almost feels like I'm sitting on a train watching my life whiz by. It seems to go faster and faster and all I want to do it hit the pause button.

In this last post of 2015, I am sharing a few images I took this week when I finally eeked out a little time for some personal shooting, along with a video compilation of our holiday celebration this year.

2015 was a year of growth, struggle, change, success and a whole lotta stress. Honestly, I had hoped the year would be more golden than it was for me. But it was a stepping stone and a necessary building block to where I hope to take my business and where we, as a family, hope to go. I worked hard. Really hard to build something substantial, and while I did not reach all of my goals, I reached many and that is worth celebrating.

I had hoped to find a better balance between work, family, and personal growth. While I did manage to balance the scales a bit better than the year before, I fell short in coming to any real solution. However, I am sincerely grateful for all of the opportunities, the support and the love that 2015 afforded me. And I am very appreciate of your continued support here as I find my way through the struggles of parenting, homeschooling, business building and mid-life.

I wish you all much joy, love, peace and prosperity in 2016. Happy New Year!

So sorry this is late - again. I was having some technical difficulties. : / I hope you all have had a great week. I can hardly believe we are down to a week until Christmas! Where did this year go?! 
We finally carved out some time to enjoy some festive fun this week. We visited our favorite holiday display last weekend, and attended a Christmas party on Thursday. The girls also went caroling with their Girl Scout troop this week. I still have a long way to go before I am ready for the big day - but I am starting to feel the holiday spirit. I have a wedding to shoot this afternoon, and a family session on Wednesday, then I plan to take a couple of days for some family time - finally. 

How was your week?

I do sincerely appreciate your visits and wish you much love, joy and peace.
Thanks for stopping in! I hope you have an awesome week! :)

Ahhh, so late! So late! I'm sorry I dropped the ball this week. The madness continues with late night editing marathons as I try to crank out galleries before next Friday's wedding. And our puppy girl had her spay surgery and gastropexy this week. So, we are nursing a sad puppy and taking turns keeping the pups separated but occupied so they don't chew everything in sight.

And as usual, I haven't much to share as I just have zero minutes in the day for myself right now. I do have one shot I managed to edit of my big girl, who I can hardly believe is only 10. She looks more and more like a teen every day. Other than that, I haven't even had a chance to upload the few phone pics I took over the week. But, my sincerest hope is that after this week, I will have a little time to enjoy some holiday festivities and get back to a little creative me time.

I hope each of you is having a wonderful holiday season and that you are fully immersed in the merriment and memory making that this time of year brings.

And just a peek at what's been keeping me busy!

I do sincerely appreciate your visits and wish you much love, joy and peace.
Thanks for stopping in! I hope you have an awesome week! :)

Another crazy week down. This one was rough., I tell ya. No rest for the weary around here. I am up to my eyeballs in work and dog tired. Plus, our rambunctious pups like to rise and shine early - like sunrise early. I am not a morning girl. Especially not after editing until 1 AM every night. Oy!
Is it January yet?
When I remembered that today was Thursday and that I needed a post for FPJ, I thought, "I've got nothing." Then I remembered our family shoot from last weekend. I did shoot family pics for my sisters, and we did our own family Christmas picture too. My big sis was awesome and took some shots for me so I didn't have to run back and forth to a tripod this year. :)

I'm not winning any awards with my creativity, but we are all in the same shot,
 so I call that a win with this crew!

What have you been up to?
Thanks for stopping in! I hope you have an awesome weekend! :)
