Been visiting photography blogs for different ideas for the weddings we shoot.
Been reading magazines to get inspired to craft again.
Been cleaning the house and doing bookwork.
Been watching some dvd's-
Iron Jawed Angels inspired me to listen to the issues and VOTE!
For One More Day inspired me to live each day to the fullest!
Freedom Writers inspired me to look for what is possible in peoples lives!
Miss Ever's Boys inspired me to stand up for what I believe in and not go with the crowd!
Been helping with senior portraits and trying to inspire Gary to try different angles and views.
This is Alexa-her address is in Happy Valley, OR (what a great name for a place to live.) She was looking for something different from what her friends have....
We were happy with the shoot and in their online file they have already picked over 50 that they liked so I guess we were successful!

For their senior session we headed to Lewisville park, luckily it was an overcast morning so the light wasn't too harsh on the water.
Her portraits were done at Leverich Park and a few spots downtown.
Before next weekend's wedding appointment we have 3 more seniors. And this is in addition to Gary's "real" job. The man has to work too hard. Like I said before, good thing he enjoys the kids!

This is a good friend of ours and we love her music. She is having a concert this month at Crossroads Church in Vancouver, WA. Here is a note from Kate...The Concert is 8/27 7:00p.m. at Crossroads following a time of worship. I would love to see you and your family there if you can make it and please pass the word along to as many as you can. I really want to show our appreciation by filling up the place!

Miss Amy took me to see this as a birthday present. (from May) It was amazing!!!
I had goose bumps and I loved the music. Missed some of the dialog-note to self...wear hearing aid next time! Of course, Amy said she missed some of it to. Oh and the costumes and stage and the chandelier that actually hung over some of the audience all were awe inspireing.
Then she took me to Red Lobster for dinner. Yummo!
Thanks again Amy, it was the best and I love your giving spirit.

My report cards clear back to the second grade have comments about talking too much and giving the answers before anyone else has a chance!
I got to sit with a gal whose mom used to care for my brother and I. She had 6 brothers and sisters, so there was a lot to catch up on. Her name is Kathleen and I used to be so jealous of her because her mom was able to be an at home mom. Oh and Kathleen got an Easy Bake Oven. She didn't really need it, we baked in the real one all the time...but just the same... This is her with her husband Ted.Then on Sunday, Amy came over for our craft day. We're working on these little books that we started with journal prompt stickers which I talked about in my last post. Well, once I have all the photos in I'll share. I goofed on one page and started filling it out before reading the whole thing. So it says something like I enjoy spending time with Amy doing crafts and that I am so glad I met her __________. Had to fill it in with "at the hospital in 1984"!! Here is a picture of her and Nick in my little cottage.oh and one more picture...me and my lovely husband(can I say lovely? maybe I should say manly or studly?!)I'm off to rest now or drink something cool...
