Photo(s) of the Week, special edition

You guys – I got some new photography toys. Thanks to the magic of Amazon and it’s amazing deals, I got all of these goodies for an awesome price. Why, you ask? To do more of this kind of thing: The goal is to eventually have enough to buy another camera so besides my regularContinue reading “Photo(s) of the Week, special edition”

New Year’s Eve Mystery: The Case

Like I said in the last post, when I thought about wanting to do a Murder Mystery Party at some point, I knew who I was asking first – the Game Night group. I knew they’d take little to no convincing, as we tend to like dressing up to play games because that’s pretty muchContinue reading “New Year’s Eve Mystery: The Case”

New Year’s Eve Mystery: Cast of Characters

Once upon a time, I got an email from Groupon (as I do every day, sometimes annoyingly) with their daily deals. Leading the email? A $30 deal for a Murder Mystery package. Half the price it usually sells for, to get a 150+ page PDF of just about everything you’d need to host your ownContinue reading “New Year’s Eve Mystery: Cast of Characters”

Photo of the Week

In an effort to make myself do more photography besides when I’m paid or asked to do it, I’m making myself start a Photo of the Week feature. This first one isn’t one I took, personally, but I’m in it – which is rare for me to post on here. It’s from our New Year’sContinue reading “Photo of the Week”

Sounds familiar, special edition

A few months ago, my life was changed by an iPhone app. Not Candy Crush. GroupMe. You used it? It was introduced to me by one of my best friends in an attempt to get us all into a group message outside the regular texts. It’s genius, really, because seriously who hasn’t wished for anContinue reading “Sounds familiar, special edition”

Unconditionally

There’s this new-ish song I like. And surprise, surprise, it’s by Katy Perry. She of the mega girl crush I have. I love her. Anyways. I bought her new album not too long after it came out and there are a few on there I’ve kept on repeat, but none more than this one. It’sContinue reading “Unconditionally”

Baby steps

I’m working on this whole photo thing. And I am getting so much better, dammit. I can take a senior portrait like nobody’s business (which reminds me – a post of those is headed your way soon) and I just did my THIRD wedding photo shoot. So while I am definitely keeping all that up,Continue reading “Baby steps”

Wherein I am either the worst chaperone or the best one

I don’t remember the first time I decided I wanted a tattoo, but I know it’s been at least about 7 or 8 years now. The first time I remember even coming close to following through with wanting to get one was on Spring Break in college with some of my sorority sisters. Yes IContinue reading “Wherein I am either the worst chaperone or the best one”

Best Week Ever. Part 1.

This summer, for the third time in 10 years, I’ve gotten to take a trip to my happy place. You see, in 2004, our youth group got the chance to visit with our sister church in Mandeville, Jamaica. We gained some awesome friendships (more about that later) and a home away from home that weContinue reading “Best Week Ever. Part 1.”
