Why I love January

January is one of my favorite months,  Not only because its the beginning of the new year and it feels like a new start, but because special things happen in this month.

The first thing is that my husband turns a year older. It is special to me for two reasons:
1. He's my husband, and I love him.  So we have to celebrate.
2. Our ages finally equal.  (28=28)
In case you didn't know, I am about 2 months older than my husband. So, from the day of my birthday, up until Ruben's birthday, I get teased for being "older", and being born on different years. It can get quite annoying sometimes. hehe.

The second is my son, Benjamin, was born in this month. Pretty much, the whole month I spend remembering those moment of desperation for finally meeting him and holding him in my arms. It is such a bittersweet time for me.  Sad because he is growing up so fast, and happy because he is growing up healthy.  I know he has to grow up, and I accept it.  I enjoy every stage he goes through, but I can't help but remember and miss baby Benji.

Thirdly, Winter is at it's full force.  I loved that day I walked out and it looked like all the trees had been spray painted white.  Beautiful.  Just beautiful. That's January. The month of snowfalls. I feel by the time February rolls around... we are all sick of the winter, the snow, and the over bearing amounts of layers we wear to keep warm.  In January, though, winter is love!

I can't believe how fast this month has gone by. It will literally be February this weekend. It's incredible to think that before we know it we will be celebrating another new year.  What can we do? Just take the time to take in every moment we go through, and remember.

My little boy has turned three. I can't believe it. Gosh, He is just growing up too fast.  Next year he will be going to school. It makes me sad. I know that he is growing up, and soon he will a teenager, will like girls, and I will no longer be his favorite person ever!  aahh! 

Well, I guess it's part of life. 
He's just so darn cute right now.

This Year

This year....
I will pray everyday, 
Read God's word everyday
Care for my family more, 
Manage my time better, 
Take in the special moments, 
Be happy,
Be more attentive,
Put more love into my cooking, 
Fall in love with Jesus even more, 
Bring someone to church, 
Be a better friend, sister, wife, and mother,
Be consistent,
Be on time, 
Be Positive,
Be Thankful,
Not complain but rather
Praise God Everyday,

Hi there,

 I have one more exam and then I will be free for three weeks. YAY!!  I hope to get alot of stuff done during that time, including updated my blog.

Here are some things I have been working on.
I had a session with Ms. Tahilah about 2 weeks ago.  I had alot of fun doing this. She had alot of fun throwing balloons at me and pretending to pop them.
I'm also working on some wedding photos from this wedding about a month ago.  It was a very beautiful wedding.  The bride is a very special friend to me, so I was honored when I was asked to photograph the wedding with my partner in crime, Sarah. You can view the couples engagement photos over at Sarah's blog.

That's all for now,
See ya later!

Mad About Plaid

Hey there,

So I'm really excited today because the blog Modestly Wed has featured Yenni and Salem's wedding. Of course, that means that my photographs were featured!  So head on over to her blog and check it out, and of course leave a comment, and tell them I sent ya :)

NOW what kind of blogger would I be If I didn't post a photo...and a story.

This morning as I was getting dressed, I looked at my closet and realized I had quite a bit of plaid. So I decided I wanted to wear all of it today. Yes ALL! Honestly I thought I looked pretty awesome, and decided I was going to take a picture for my instagram buddies. So I set my Ipad camera on the 10 sec timer, and thought to myself "this is going to be the best photo of myself ever!" (Let's be honest we all think that before taking a selfie)

As strange as this may sound, most photographers are kinda awkward when they get in front of the camera. Well at least I am.  So there I was posing awkwardly, and not knowing what to do.  So I had the grand idea of capturing myself in motion.  So I set the timer, and just started waving my hands and being all psycho.

Now one of Benjamin's favorite things to do is put the iPad camera on the timer and rush to the wall.  He just stands there doing nothing, and when it flashes, he laughs his head off!   When he saw me trying to "capture myself in motion" he thought it was hilarious, and wanted in on the fun.  So he runs over to me and says "Me, mama, my turn!" How shall I deny such a request from my child?

There it is, this morning we laughed our heads off by being weirdos! 

OH No, I didn't wear all my plaid this morning.  
I decided on something more "basic"

Good Day!
