Hey everyone!!! Life is wonderful isn’t it? I must say I am loving so much about my life right now. This pregnancy is finally treating me well! My son Riley is at such a fun age, fun mostly cuz he knows he’s adorable. Man that kid lights up my life. I have been doing some painting and redecorating in my house. I loved my red wall but found it so dark….. so I went crazy and painted it white. What a difference! It so bright and cheery. Its amazing how a wall came make the difference of wanting to sleep in and not wanting to! So my plan to make my life more bright is to fill the spaces around me with fun bright things! #1 on my “to do” list is to make myself an inspiration board! I need a huge peg board in my dining room where I’ll pin up all sorts of inspirational things! Bible verses/ paint swatches/material pieces/photographs and quotes from people I admire!
More newness! Jess slingerland ( owner of 4thelove Photography) and I have decided to put together some of our ideas. So introducing Efflorescence Imagery! This is a photography project company. We are focused on young woman who are in that awesome process of finding themselves and deciding who they want to be. A photoshoot can be such a confidence building experience! Our Idea is to make these shoot unique and different. We need models who are willing to go out and do something fun and daring ( who doesn’t like the sound of that).
Jess and I did our first daring shoot….. Thunderstorms! If you know me personally, you’ll know I am terrifies of lighting and thunder! As in I run for my husband’s arms at the slight hint of thunder. Well I’m cured! Standing out under that beautiful sky finally made me realize what people are talking about when they say storms are awesome! They really are! God just paints the most gorgeous configurations of clouds! I can’t imagine the joy He must get out of making something so unique and powerful! Here are some of the pictures we got out of that storm evening! Enjoy
Newborns… is there anyone who doesn’t just go crazy over a new baby? There’s something about them that makes me melt. Of course it totally helps when the newborn is my nephew. This was also the first time I’ve held a newborn when I myself was pregnant, and really? I think it made a difference. Anyways I’ll stop hogging Kody to myself and show him off a little bit… I guess. Here are some shots of my new inspiration and addiction.
My year with my baby flew by so fast! It’s like I went from a newborn to a little boy. I was at the hospital yesterday holding my brand new nephew Kody and I couldn’t believe Ry was ever that small! I’m not very sentimental about Riley growing up on me, not very often anyways. Once in awhile its like WOW! Anyways here’s the newest picture of my ” Baby” .
The last three months… I don’t know where I went the last three months. I know I was here somewhere just not too sure where that was. Dealing with being sick day and day out was horrible, and honesty I think the emotional side of it was worse than the physical. I lost touch with so many things during that time. And I can say the worse part was losing my faith in my savior. Yes I was still going to church and I was still talking to Him. But my prayers were honestly pretty selfish. I was pretty angry that here I was, following what I thought was His plan for my life….. and was in my mind almost getting punished with this awful sickness day and night. Well lets just say I woke up! haha something in my snapped when I realized… I’m still the lucky one! Here I am only almost 21 years old, I’m married to this awesome, strong and funny guy. I have have an adorable son to push my buttons all day everyday and I have this incredible miracle growing inside me. This little miracle just decided it needed some attention, hence the great relationship with the toilet bowl. I’m so blessed. How many woman would love the chance to be sick for months on end if it only meant they could have a baby? Thank the Lord I saw this and can now be so thankful that I had the chance not once but twice to feel life inside me.
Anyways I’m back I’ve discovered that I have a dairy allergy … so the great thing is… ” I don’t need ice cream this summer, and I dont need pizza or ice capps… or anything that really taste incredible” … Or so I’m still trying to convince myself. A little help please?
Anyways what better was to kick off my return then to show you some pictures! And of what better than a gorgeous mini shoot of my very pregnant sister. And what a last minute shoot it was. Bernite is due for a C-section tomorrow! I’m so super excited to meet my nephew!! Anyways these pictures were taken just last night, Please don’t tell her your eyes grew huge at the sight of her very large stomach! She’s very sensitive about this … And yes there is only ONE in there! Enjoy!
So You’ve probably realized I’ve been missing for about 3/4 weeks… There is a reason of course. Couple reasons!
First reason is I recently found out I’m expecting my second child!!! Which is uber exciting of course!! But this time the baby isn’t being so very kind to me. I ended up two weeks ago with severe morning sickness, to the point of being in and out of the hospital, hooked up to IV’s and becoming very well acquainted with the bowl of the toilet. They have been trying all sorts of meds on me and finally I think yesterday we hit the jackpot with one. As you can tell I”m actually on the computer today which i haven’t been for awhile. In fact typing is being relearned as I write this.
I’ve been really fighting against depression as I couldn’t get a few minutes of relief from the nausea at any point of any day. During this time I lost touch with the creative side of myself and it’s going to be a struggle to find it back I think. I’ll be doing the booked sessions as of right now, but I wont be taking bookings for the next few weeks as I need sometime with my family. Thanks so much for you patience!!!
