I live a simple life, exploring the great outdoors, and slowly the world with my husband and our 2 amazing little girls. I am a Shutterbug, I am constantly taking pictures, my camera is like an extra appendage! I love to cook, craft, bake, travel and just enjoy life! I've been told I'm a "Jane of all trades" and I like to tell people I have Creativity A.D.D. My interests are completely random and can range from making hair bows for little girls to "dumpster diving" and refinishing furniture with my best friend! I paint, I use power tools(and I'm quite proficient with a hot glue gun), and I just learned to sew this year, so I'm excited to see what will come of that! I hope you enjoy tagging along for this crazy journey of randomness!

Practice makes perfect?

Today was a big day! Nat got her very first haircut! She was the sweetest, she just sat there with her dum dum sucker and watched backyardigans while the stylist did her thing! We go to a really awesome hair salon, Cookie Cutters, it is geared towards children so the stylists are very patient and very good with the kids. Nat got to sit on the tractor for her haircut.It's such a neat place, there are firetrucks, airplanes, animals, and of course a tractor! We took Haylie there for her first haircut as well, and we've never gone anywhere else since!
Today was also a big day for my camera and I...we figured out how to shoot out of full auto mode...that's HUGE for me and I have been ecstatic all day, the downfall is I had to sit in one place and nearly go cross-eyed reading instructions, googling what I didn't understand, and looking for buttons and settings so my pictures consist of a can of coke sitting on my desk and a few of the wall...but I am getting the hang of it, so the photos should start pouring in soon :) Hopefully it gets easier, I am going to keep trying, that's for sure! I have also come quite far in my editing abilities...for example, the self portrait shot above was an awful picture in very dull, dim lighting, I almost discarded it and thought, well maybe...just maybe I can salvage it. And...Voila!


  1. What is it about haircuts that make little kids look so grown up?? She looks so cute! And I love your new pic!!

  2. I swear, it's so weird, she doesn't even look like the same kid from the back and side, it really did make her look grown up! Thanks-I am enjoying editing photos almost as much as I enjoy taking them! haha
