Playing Catchup

So this weekend has been a blur.  With a sick baby, it’s hard to tell where the weekend started and where it ended.  But somehow it is Monday again!  It’s so depressing to take care of a sick baby.  There is so little that you can do to calm and comfort.  Where is baby Nyquil when you need it??!!  Well it has taken almost all of my energy, which is why there hasn’t been photos for a few days.  Today I was determined to get back to it. 

Grandpa’s are the Best! 🙂

My parents are great with the baby.   They try so hard to help me out whenever I can.  Yesterday was one of those days.  They took care of Marcy so I could attend the last baptism class and then invited us over later that night for some delicious pork roast.  Yum.  A hot meal that I didn’t have to cook or clean up after.  They know how to make me happy! 🙂  lol.  But the days over there are filled with such cute moments… especially this one.  It’s clear already, Marcy loves her grandparents!

Star Wars Pancakes

So the last time my friend Will visited, he suprised me with a super cool gift – Star Wars pancake molds.  So my excitement over this probably makes me a big dweeb, but I can’t help it!!  So this morning, I decided to test it out.  Definitely have cool results and delicious pancakes! 🙂

My Friend (Ian’s) Birthday

Ian is a good friend of mine, but with the baby and pregnancy, I haven’t made the time to go visit him in a long time.  So, his birthday was the perfect oppurtunity to remind him how much we care.  So my hubbie, Marcy and I hopped in my focus and headed for Timonium to stop by with cupcakes, a present, and some bear hugs!  I was so happy that we got to make it, even though we couldn’t stay for too long!  Best of all we made hime feel extra special on his birthday!  🙂


Daddy & Marcy

I love this pair too much for words! 🙂 ❤

Triple Thursday

Today was a long day.  It started off with my doctor’s appointment and my husband was formally offered a new job.  With all that excitement, I almost forgot my photo of the day!  Have no fear.  To make up for this (almost) memory lapse, I took a couple of good ones.  Enjoy triple Thursday! 🙂

50 days of 50

It’s been a long time.

Like a really long time.

I don’t know what happened.  Maybe it was the pregnancy (yes, I’m going to be a mom), my photo buddy leaving (I miss you), or just life in general.  Perhaps it is sufficient to say that I (temporarily) lost my inspiration and my passion for photography. Depressing but true.  But, I refuse to be in this rut!  I will photograph, edit, and create great images! 

So I am back, and hopefully ready to get this blog back on track with a brilliant (if i do say so myself) and challenging idea – 50 days of 50.  50 days of taking photos with my 50 mm lens.  I’m hoping to learn more about the lens and it’s manual focus, aperture, and photography in general.  So wish me luck, this is going to be a doozy! 🙂

So, since there’s no time like the present, here’s day 1 of 50 days of 50 entitled “Baby Clothes”  :

01 - Baby Clothes

Please leave love & words of encouragement! 🙂

Glen Echo, Maryland

Glen Echo is one of my favorite places to go to. I love the neon lights and the vintage amusement park vibe.

This weekend has been given many incredible names: Super Storm, Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon.  No matter what you call it, here where I live it translates to about 28 inches of snow. 

So here I am, exhausted after shoveling out my driveway and half of my car.   After the shoveling I wnadered out into the undeveloped part of my neighborhood in hopes of taking some cool pictures.  Any thoughts?

Snowy Sunflares

My first sunflare! Yay!

Leafy Snow

This might be my favorite!

Snowy Shadows

Cliche, I know, but we love corny & cliche. lol.


After we arrived back to our house, Joe covered me in snow and I pushed him into a snow bank (I love him).  In tune with his fun, free-spirited way, he announced take a picture of this as he leapt into the snow in our front yeard.  Here’s a few of the series.  Hope it makes you giggle too.  Have fun out in the snow & stay warm!
