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!

Here we go, here we go, BOOM BOOM!

You ask most people their favorite Holiday and the common responses are Thanksgiving or Christmas. I am not most people. Although I love those holidays, my favorite is Independence Day! Nothing like being downtown on the riverfront for Red, White, and Boom with everyone's radios tuned to the same station, every single person standing to our National anthem, Lee Greenwood singing "Proud to be an American", the National Guard fly over, kids with sparklers and pop-its, and best of all-the Fireworks! I am like a giant 5 year old during fireworks, they are so beautiful, so exciting, and so loud!! My favorite fireworks are those really loud ones that are just meant to make noise, the ones they fill the finale with that explode so loud you can feel them in your chest...those are the best! 4th of July is the greatest!

Catching up...

I have so much to update, I will most likely be making 3 or 4 seperate posts today! The end of June and beginning of July got really busy, really fast! Time has flown by and been filled with great times and great photo opportunities, but has also led to some major neglecting of my blog!
My husband and I enjoy getting outdoors, day or night, and enjoying the many things our City has to offer. One of these things is Waterfire on the River. They set up bonfires in an artistic pattern out on the water and have a jazz band or other entertainment performing on a stage to the side. It is a very relaxed, very enjoyable time. It gives people the opportunity to see our beautiful city at night! Hope you enjoy these pics as much as I enjoyed taking them!

and this pic is another "city nightlife" photo from the Park Street Festival, Saving Jane's last performance! :(
