Life with a middle schooler, a soon to be middle schooler, and an awesome husband of twelve years. Living in Texas with my heart in Cali, my home then, now, & always will be. No, those aren't my wedding photos. They are our ten year renewal photos.
So I've been very very bad about updating my New Year's resolutions, unlike S. However, one resolution I've noticed that I've been doing awesome at is that I've actually been taking pictures of the happy moments, not just moments for my blog. The other day I was thinking, boy we haven't experienced many fun events lately! Then I looked at my camera and I had six different events all piled on top of each other in my camera, and each one of them was an equally happy splendid moment. There wasn't a single picture of a bad moment on there, even one that may've looked happy in a picture had I went ahead and took a picture. I am so grateful. And just because I've talked about it so much and don't want to be TOO much of a tease, here are (more than) a few:
