Hi, I’m still here.

So… hi!  Long time no see, right? I don’t know what’s been up with me.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  It’s more like, I don’t really know how to explain what’s going in my head lately.  What I think is happening is: I never really took the time to let our move and all the […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 11 {#catchthemoment365}


I’ll admit, I had a really good time with my images this week.  It helps that I had new equipment to play with. I mentioned last week that I upgraded to full-frame.  If you don’t know what that means, you’re not alone.  I didn’t for for a long time.  Without getting into too much detail […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 10 {#CatchTheMoment365}


This last week was less than inspirational for me.  I just wrote a whole post about it, added my photos, saved the post… aaand everything was gone.  I don’t have the time or energy to rewrite the whole thing and, frankly, I’m not in the right state of mind as my toddler just woke up from […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 9 {Catch the Moment 365}


Oh, do I have grand plans… Now I just need to actually follow through. There are so many things I’d love to offer on this blog.  I want so much for it to be a place of love, support, and information.  A place where I can talk about my family and my personal struggles, but […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 8 (#catchthemoment365)


This was a week of stress.  I don’t have much to share today other than my photos.  Andy was out of town for the week and D was sick and out of school until the day he got back.  I’d complain, but in many ways it was actually a blessing.  In addition to not having […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 7 {Catch the Moment 365}


I’ve been so concerned with finding and capturing the beauty in the small moments that I haven’t put much emphasis on documenting our lives. I celebrated my birthday last week.  You’d never know that by looking through my pictures.  I posted Wyatt dancing that day… Also?  My sister and her fiancé were here for part […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 6 {Catch the Moment 365}

Week6 copy

Day 36: Dylan’s first day of preschool (after a 1 month hiatus)! Day 37: Ice cream – Wyatt usually asks us to help him whenever he’s eating out of a bowl.  Usually just the last few bites.  Dylan’s been taking the initiative to help his little brother a lot lately. Day 38: Though Wy’s usually […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 5 {Catch the Moment 365}


What do I say about week 5? It’s hard because the year started on a Wednesday, so I’m counting my weeks Wed-Tues.  It’s difficult to keep straight what happened the second half of last week and the first half of this week. Does that make any sense?  It’s like I’m a computer and I hit […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 4 {Catch the Moment 365}


Though, this week’s images reflect the tone around here, I’m not so sure how I feel about them. I guess that’s art, though.  Good or bad, it reflects real life and that’s definitely the point of this project for me. In reflection over these photos, I think I need to make more of an effort […]

I can let go and move mountains.


Most people experience a time of largely naive passion as young adults. It’s understandable.  We learn all this… well, stuff, for lack of a better word, in school and then we’re set free with a lot of knowledge, confidence, and a desire to change the world.  Somewhere along the road of life, I let the […]
