Wow, I really can't believe how long it's been since my last post.  This used to be such a creative space for me.  But in the past couple of years, my priorities have changed.  But I guess that's what happens in life, as the years go by, so do our interests.

This used to be a space for me to write about my furniture and decorating choices. But if you've been here awhile you know that I've switched over to photography.  I no longer paint furniture, and I really miss it. Not so much the looking for it or the hauling it, but I miss the process of changing something that someone threw away into an item that someone would pay $300 for.  It's really an incredible way to earn a little extra money.

When I started doing this, Miss Mustard Seed was still brand new. And I am one of the thousands that was inspired by her style.  Over the next few years I painted and sold many, many pieces.  But as I popped out one baby after the other, I realized this was something I could no longer keep up with.
On another note, as my children got into school age, we realized we wanted to home school.

We focus a lot of time on being outdoors and learning from our environment. It's amazing to watch children thrive in a real world environment.  We choose to go a different route when it came to home schooling, but more on that later.
Other than all of that going on, my photography business is thriving and I couldn't be happier.  This has been a passion of mine since I was a young adolescent, and being able to earn some money while doing something I absolutely LOVE is an incredible feeling.  
So I've decided I will pop in from time to time to talk about life, photography and home schooling.
What do ya think?!  Will you follow along?

So, I'm in the process of turning this over into my photography blog.  I'm not sure yet how I want to set it up and that's why it's taken me so long.  But I wanted to start sharing my work with you all!

Please follow along on Instagram and FB!

I've really missed this space.  A lot has been happening and I want to share it here.  My photography business that I started last spring, has made me so happy.  I'm addicted to the feeling I get when I take a good picture and the clients love it.

I've recently started trying to build up my couples portfolio.  I mostly photograph families and children, which I adore, but I'm able to get much more creative with couples.

The pictures you're seeing are of a recently engaged couple.  They were such great sports and so beautiful.  I'm thankful they allowed me to capture this special time in their lives.

By the way, I'm on instagram now!
