Cutie Pies aka My Kids

There is a local photographer named Dana Jackson who also happens to be a friend and former MOMS Clubs member of mine. She only started out a few years ago and she is one of the most talented photographers I have seen. She did my daughter's newborn pictures 2 years ago and they were amazing. So when I saw that she was running a Valentine's special I jumped on it because she is amazing and I wanted to get the kids done together since it had been over a year since I had. And as usual they are wonderful and I just had to share! So head over to her blog to see my cuties and a bunch of other cuties too. Also check out her website here and if you are ever in eastern North Carolina and need/want a photographer you should consider Dana.

Reflections from 2009

2009 came to a close very quickly for me. Looking back on the year I have learned one very important thing; life is short and can end too quickly. I watched my friend Meg loose her 5 year old daughter to cancer, I watched my friend Jennie loose her mom very suddenly and unexpectedly and I just lost my wonderful uncle Gordon to cancer. So tell those you love how much you love them every chance you can. Don't wait to do the things you always wanted to do. You never know how much time is left. And most importantly ENJOY things. I have a tendency to take things waaayyy too seriously but life is just too short to be so serious and stressed out. I am also trying to take a page from my uncle Gordon's book and enjoy family.
