I met Mike and Sara 2 years ago. We lived next door to eachother and spent almost every Friday night together for close to a year. We became instant friends and I am the lucky one that they picked to take their engagement pictures.

We started out at their beautiful new home.

We then headed over to Marsh Creek State Park.

While taking pictures we had an unexpected visitor join us.

On our way out of the park we pulled over right after we crossed over this bridge. As luck would have it there was a red barn behind this bridge.

We headed back to the house and did a little wardrobe change. It was back outside to the neighbors old truck.

Sara & Mike stay tuned for your full gallery.

This past weekend I went to New York to visit with some of my favorite photographers. They are the photographers I have befriended because of 365. Some of us are doing it again. I must say that this time around I am really enjoying it. I am doing it for me, I am doing it to keep in touch with some of my favorites. It is not about the best picture it is about just getting out the camera and capturing my daily life.

So anyway I spent last weekend in New York State. Here are some of my favorite pictures.

My friend Tamme’s brother lives next door. He has a “man cave” in his back yard. The world’s greatest “MAN CAVE!”

So of course the girls and I had to invade the said “man cave”.

And of course a couple of self portraits!

I had the kids one night last week and we danced. Well we dance a lot. We also jump on the beds, play in our bare feet outside, have indoor picnics, and anything else that is fun.

We were dancing to some black eyed peas in this photo.

We danced and jumped on beds for atleast two hours tonight.

Tonight was a good night!

I love these two and can’t wait to meet their sibling who should be entering the world in early 2010!

Over 3 years ago when I left my marriage I decided to find myself. I had lost that girl and knew she was in there. I knew she had so much to offer and I truly needed to not only find her but put her back together. It has been 3.5 years since I said good bye to the man I loved and the broken girl I was .

Three years ago I decided to join in on a photography group known as 365. It is about taking a self portrait daily for 365 days in a row. I completed it back in 2007 and I had met so many wonderful people. Through those people I have met more people. I am truly blessed. Some of my closest friends are from that chapter of my life. A group of us decided to go at it again. I succeeded once, failed once with in the first month, and figured that the third time was a charm. So here I am 13 days into it and loving it. Yes it is a lot, yes it takes time, but I get so much out of it. Not only do I get to form and grow relationships, I learn so much about myself. Life is truly wonderful. I am lucky and I am in such a wonderful place. I can’t wait to see what this year brings.

So I have posted a few of my favorite 365’s this time around.I will post more through out this year. I hope you enjoy.

A few weeks ago I promised a certain someone that if she stayed in her bed all night for two nights I would come over after work and watch “Snowman” White with her.

She did so I followed through on my promise.

So we made popcorn and added M & M’s!

And ate it of course:

When I said what could be better than popcorn and M&M’s? Her response was JUST M&M’s. She is such a smart girl!

We danced like every princess should:

We of course had to watch the movie:

A good night was had by all:

All this while wearing our “Snowman” White dress and shoes!
