This past week has taken a serious toll on so many people. After hearing about and seeing what has happened in Boston and West, Texas (which is practically down the road from my hometown of Waco), a dark cloud has settled over me. While I am so thankful that my family and friends are with me day in and day out, I cry for those who are not so fortunate.
I don’t typically engage in spiritual talk on the blog, but my spirituality and faith in the Divine, Creative Energy (some call it God, Spirit, the name doesn’t matter) is what is keeping myself going. I have prayed so much and so hard; with everything I have, I ask God to be with the families and loved ones that have been touched by these events. I can’t even begin to imagine what those who has been directly involved in these horrible tragedies are feeling, but I know that things will get better. Maybe not in the near future, but one day, the light will stream through the darkness.
A few days ago, I posted a preview of my sister’s college graduation portraits, and today is her full on entry! I visited our hometown of Waco this past weekend for a belated celebration for my birthday. While my sister, and I were both in town, we traveled downtown to take some photos!
First, a little bit about my baby sis.
My little sister is absolutely my best friend! She has always been there for me, and I know she always will be. She’s one of the smartest, sweetest, most beautiful, and funniest people that I know. She’s graduating from Texas State (EAT ‘EM UP!) in August, and walking the stage next month. She has worked so hard while majoring in Communication Studies (she wants to do PR work), and I know that she is going to have so much success in life!
Here’s to you, sis! I love you so much!
My little baby sister is graduating from college soon! She walks the stage next month, and will receive her diploma in August! We are all so insanely proud of her, and to celebrate the end of her college career (hopefully not the last career she’ll enjoy), we took pictures in our hometown!
These are two of my faves!
Her full post will come soon!
A beautiful & just slightly goofy college grad right there!
It’s only 10:10?! I am exhausted!!!
My husband and I have now started watching Dr. Who, and despite being so totally tired that my eyes are burning, I want to keep watching.
Now, it’s 10:50 pm, and here is today’s photo!
Jeez. Not even half way through the month, and I’ve missed two days of posting!
So, to make up for it, here are some images for the 30 Days 30 Photos series! 🙂 Today’s photo will be uploaded later!
Katherine and Robert are so incredibly sweet, and brilliantly…well…brilliant! They are both in the process of obtaining their PhDs in Maths from Rice – which is how I came to know them. No no no no I don’t study Math (I don’t hate it; I’m just not too great at it), but my husband does, and he gave them my information when they began searching for a wedding photographer!
My husband is probably my number one fan, and for that I am grateful!
Here is a quick preview of Katherine and Robert’s lovely, intimate wedding! Be on the look out for the full day’s entry soon!
Today is my birthday. I’m a quarter of a century old, now! I have to say that turning 25 is exciting, because 25 is my favourite number! I can go rent a car from a car rental place, now! If that’s not excitement, then I don’t know what is!
Jokes. Tons more things are more exciting than renting a car, but what I’m getting at is that my birthday was great, and I’m excited for what my 25th year has to offer! Today was one of the best birthdays I’ve had! My husband left little post it notes around the apartment with reasons why he loves me; this is my first birthday with my daughter (not counting last year’s bday when she was in utero!); AND WE HAD MOOYAH BLACK BEAN BURGERS FOR DINNER! Totally awesome, guys!
Here’s to a quarter of a century & three quarters more!
I shot a wedding yesterday by myself, so I was a little bit too tired to post when I got home.
It was a beautiful casual wedding, and I’m excited to share the images with you all! For now, here’s the photo for yesterday’s 30 Days 30 Photos:
Don’t worry, another shot will be posted later today, too!
