I used the idea of a book for my header since this challenge is going to be a journal of my life over the years.
I hope you enjoy viewing these pages of my life as they unfold. I know I will...

Page 240 - Building A Bridge

Building a bridge can be the hardest thing to do, especially when the flood gates keep opening up and washing away all your progress :(

Page 239 - Shooting Star

I'm a shooting star (pun intended)

Yep, I caught 2!! Here are some more sky pics I took and love.

I'd like to thank the little people -
Jeremy - for making me go get my camera and telling me what settings to use
Scott - For letting me use your tripod ;)

That is the Milky Way. Just as yummy for the eyes as the candybar is for the tummy :)

Page 236 - Nothing Old Can Stay

Found the coolest old shack I was going to take my son's 14 year pics at this winter.

I drove by today and it's now a pile of rubble.

Page 234 - Goodbye

My girls are the best of friends and the worst of enemies. Now that my 6 year old is starting 1st grade I'm hoping they don't miss each other too much.

Page 233 - Nail Polish

Got my girls some nail polish that washes off easy. They love it, and I love not having to throw away things covered in the real nail polish anymore :)

Page 232 - Fan

Having a rough couple of days. Yesterday the shower, today the ceiling fan. I think I'm in a rut.

Page 231 - Unispiring Day

Obviously nothing inspired me today. I took a picture of my shower, that says it all.

Page 230 - Pouring Rain

Today it starting pouring rain. I can't remember the last time it rained this hard!

Then everything started going downhill. I found several windows leaking tons of water and then water started dripping from the ceiling in my family room!!! I put towels in all the window sills to soak up the water and a pitcher to catch the steady drip from the ceiling.

Ugh, when it rains, it pours.

Page 229 - Isa Haa

Taking this reminded me of when my 6 year old was little and she used to look at a pan cooking on the stove and say, "Isa Haa" (it's hot).

Page 228 - 2 yearl Olds

Two year olds are so challenging to shoot. They are super active and won't sit still for ANYTHING. It's a good thing they also happen to be cute and fun!!

A photographer friend of mine asked if I would do some head-shots for her new blog.
Yes, I Photoshopped her logo in the camera :)

I'm not ready for my baby to be so grown up.

Page 220 - Brianna Graham Editing

Today we learned about editing in Photoshop.

I myself am a Lightroom girl so I challenged myself to get the same effect she gets in Photoshop, in Lightroom. We also learned about texture and bringing out texture in the background.

I didn't really get to take any pictures today so I just took a picture of texture :)

Page 219 - Brianna Graham Urban

Day 2 of Brianna's workshop and I must say this woman is a genius!! So glad I got the opportunity to learn from her.

Let's just say it was sooooo hard to pick just one to post today!! More to come on my photography blog in a few days.

Page 218 - Brianna Graham Studio

Today was my first day of the Brianna Graham workshop.

We learned about studio lighting and how she sets up hers. This is the type of studio work I have dreamed of getting and now that I know how, I am going to go and buy new equipment so I can get this type of photo in my own studio. So excited!!

Page 217 - Birthday Self Portrait

It's my birthday tomorrow and I will be at the Brianna Graham workshop all day.

They asked everyone coming if they would take a self portrait for the workshop so I decided to theme mine around my birthday.

What do you think, is it dumb??

For my weddings I order these custom disc cases from WHCC to put my clients discs in.

Nice way to package don't you think?

Page 215 - Washing Machine

My washing machine is severely neglected. It's empty like this most of the time.

Maybe I should use it more so it feels loved - maybe not.

Did family pictures for an amazing friend today.

I know, I'm using this location a lot lately but the flowers only last a few weeks so I'm getting in as much as possible!!

The sunset was so amazing tonight I took a quick drive up to the Draper temple just to get this shot.
