My Project 365

I am sure that some of you have heard of Project 365.
You (attempt to) take one picture every day for a whole year.
I've decided to jump on board and give it a try.
I know that the year is already half over - but better now than never.
It's going to be a fun project! I think that it will help me
become a better photographer. And it will be a neat way for our family
to remember the year.

So....if you want to take a peek - click HERE.

Maybe you'll even decide to join in the fun!

So, the big decision is final. We are moving to..........


I know that's probably not a huge surprise - but it's still very exciting! Matt has a really good job lined up and I get to live close to my family again. We are moving at the end of June - so pretty soon - and we definitely have LOTS to do!! Let the fun begin!!

And since no post is complete without a picture, here's a few of Dexter.
He's such a cute and sweet little boy!!

My Life Right Now

For quite a while we thought that we were staying here in Airdrie. We were led to believe that was the case. So, we found a beautiful house here, fell in love with it and pretty much bought it. The next day we were told that Matt wouldn't be able to keep his job here. It was a pretty huge shock and we were very disappointed. We had finally reached a point in our life where we were settled. We had (or were going to have) our first home, Matt had a great job, we were starting to make good friends, etc. etc. etc. And now we were back to having our lives up in the air. So, we've spent the past few months looking for a new job. It's been stressful! But I think we've finally found something - at least I hope so. I'm excited about it. It will mean another big move, but I think it will be great for our family. We should know by next week what the deal is - then I'll let you know where we are headed.

This weekend my cousin got married and I got to be their photographer. It made me realize how much I've been missing taking pictures. I really do love it and I feel really happy when I'm doing it. I snapped this picture of the temple while I was there. I wanted one to hang in my home - and I just love the way it turned out. I'm excited to make it really big!! And the wedding pictures turned out great too - you can peek here if you want.
And if you know anyone that needs a photographer - feel free to send them my way. haha!

I've really been hating the way I look lately. I know that I just had a baby - but I'm sick of being squishy and mushy. I finally decided it was time to do something, so I got a gym membership. I LOVE it!! I've been going 5 days a week and doing lots of different classes (my favorite is ZUMBA - you have to try it). It's amazing how a good workout makes you feel so much better! I'm super out of shape - but I feel good knowing that I'm changing that. And it's nice to get out of the house too!

Aiden and Dexter are doing good. I'm still adjusting a little bit to having 2 kids - but it's fun. Aiden is at such a funny age right now - he always says the funniest things. And Dexter is getting so big and cute. He's just starting to smile, which I LOVE!!! I'll be sure to put up some new pictures of them soon!

And now, I'm off to bed. Better sleep while I can!

Boys Boys Boys

When I found out that baby #2 was going to be a boy - I was pretty disappointed.
I really wanted a little girl - they are so much fun! But now that
Dexter is here, I couldn't imagine not having him.

It is so much fun having two little boys!!

I look forward to them growing up together. They will be best friends!
They will play cars together, catch bugs together, play on sports teams
together, all sorts of fun 'boy' things - at least that's what I see in my mind!
But my favorite thing about my boys is that little boys love their moms
And I definitely love them too!!

Look at could you not?!?

My Boys

When Aiden was a baby I took hundreds of pictures of him.
My favorite pictures of him are ones that I took when he was just 2 weeks old.
I love them so much that I had to take some similar ones with Dexter.
So, here are our boys at 2 weeks old - kindof funny!!
