Back-to-School-with-Osh-Kosh-05Wow! I can’t believe summer is coming to an end already. I have to admit; I am a little bummed. Most parents are thrilled when school is back in session, but I am always totally less than that. Especially this year. My little guy is headed off to Pre-Kindergarten and I am going to have some serious empty nest issues when he and Bunbun are in school. Thank goodness I have the dogs, right?Continue Reading

Love of The Journey + Summer Fruit Spritzers

Summer-Fruit-Spritzer-01You know that line…something about how time flies? Well, I just realized that it’s been over a year since I started my blog. Last summer, with the help of a very dear friend, I made the decision to begin my blogging journey. While many may think it’s easy to do, I beg to differ. There’s so much that goes in to all we do and it doesn’t just happen overnight. It took me a lot of work, blood, sweat and tears (real tears)…literally…to get where I am today.

I’ve struggled with many things from gaining a strong following to complete and utter failure with great ideas that I just couldn’t execute on. I went from photographing newborns and children to shooting mainly food. My friends who are renowned photographers have complimented my work and have repeatedly told me that they think I found my niche. It took a few years in the photography realm of things, but I finally found my passion and it was all for the love of the journey. I am so happy where I am today. I am successful, I am happy and that’s all that matters!Continue Reading

Explore the Great Outdoors with the Ultimate Northern Florida Family Vacation

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ocala/Marion County VCB for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

When it comes to summer in South Florida, we are usually all about living in the moment. We tend to take things day-by-day and see where we end up. Most of our days consist of sleeping in, relaxing and lots of water activities to keep us cool. However, I do attempt a mini-vacation at some point. Depending on hubby’s schedule, of course.

As a child, I always looked forward to summer vacation and now, as a parent, I find myself feeling the same way. Between daily drop-offs, pick-ups, soccer practice, PTA and room mom duties, I look forward to the summer just as much as I did as a child. Listen, it’s tough work being a Mom and we need summer vacation too!Continue Reading

Making-Memories-with-Dad-01One thing that always gets me is seeing Dad’s out with their children. It’s not very often that I see this, but when I do, it genuinely warms my heart. I truly believe that children need their fathers, so seeing them out having ice cream, walking in the park or shopping makes me so happy inside. I realize how lucky I am to have a husband who is so involved with our children. Although he works crazy hours, he always finds time to spend with the kids. And the best part? The kids are totally infatuated with him.Continue Reading
