Our Mini Vacation to Great Wolf Lodge

About a month or so ago, JT sent me an email with four places for a little mini-family getaway.   We’d been to a few on the list but ultimately, I didn’t care where we went so long as it was just the four of us.   So, we opted for a new adventure and...

    The best part about living in Texas ~ Austin child photographer

    Oh, sure, Texas has a few things about it that we all love and adore … and while the triple digit heat really isn’t one of them, the ability to be able to swim for at least six months of the year (and sometimes seven) might be one of the best parts about Texas.  ...

      Bed head? ~ Austin Child Photographer

      The thing about boys who have longer hair is that they really have some awesome bed head. I might have to do a series on Tyler-boo and all of his many hair styles after he sleeps!

        Connected and yet …

        I’ve been feeling this way for weeks … …that I am so very connected and yet, I don’t feel connected much at all.    The world of FaceBook and Blogs and Texts and Instagram, well, to me, I feel like it is actually hurting connections.  Instead of talking to people about their lives — it...

          We could kill a bottle of wine and wax on about this topic. This goes hand in hand with that “community” you know I craved for so long. I do think I’ve found what I was looking for, though, and it is separate from technology. I think you will find more connection as Sabrina starts school and your circle closes in a bit so that you are seeing the same smaller groups more frequently. I am conflicted on it all, too, because, to be brutally honest, I don’t know that I want to feel as connected as some people do. It comes with lots of strings attached and I am an introvert. That connection comes with regular encounters — like neighbor wine-in-the-driveway weeklies, or chatting in the gymnastics lobby, or seeing the same people at church each week or weekly Bible study. It can also come with email / fb exchanges, but there has to be a two-side conversation for it to happen. So, there’s my novel of the day. In summary: “How are you? We should get together soon!”ReplyCancel

        Our baby graduated from Preschool today!

        To say I was emotional about Sabrina’s preschool graduation is a *slight* understatement.  It was such a fun ceremony and I choked back tears the entire time.  I just can’t believe that she’s going to start Kindergarten in the fall!  And I can’t believe this wonderful year has gone by so quickly.  We were so...
