Yearly Archives: 2011

Wishing you love of family in the New Year! As the year 2011 comes to an end, I must say, I have many blessed family memories to recount and be thankful for. Our family is far from perfect. The age gap between a tooth fairy loving seven-year-old and an independence-hungry seventeen-year-old is challenging at times. We are […]

Summer Joy My daughter LOVES the water! Whether it is taking a bath, running through the sprinkler, pouring water on her imaginary flowers, or swimming in the pool, water simply brings her an abundant amount of joy! This image captures a joyful moment after swimming at the pool this summer. By looking at it, I […]

Back-to-School Round-Up  August is really not my favorite time to start school. I sure wish it started after Labor Day.

Photo Challenge: Father’s Day This is my man-child. Isn’t he awesome! Especially since he let me take this shot….. which is a very rare occasion these days at the very cool sixteen years of age. Makes my heart sing to see him casually strumming his ukelele on the beach to his favorite Ingrid Michaelson tunes. […]
