Why hello there, old friend!

It's been too long.

I'm going to do better, and that's all I'm going to say about that.

I'm not working anymore. Jeff has a splendiferous job that allows me to stay home and pursue my passions, or at least keep the house a *little* cleaner.

I have a few things going on. I am shooting a wedding in a week and a half, then I have an event later in the month that I have to be tight lipped about until it happens.

I'm on the planning committee for Paradise Praise Fest 2010, which is a local Christian music festival that involves all the churches in our small town uniting to make beautiful music and set aside our differences!

I'm really excited about this, very very very excited!!!
I just got back from doing a photo shoot for the promotional pictures we're going to use.

What you do think!???

And then there's this one (a personal favorite):

Lastly, my 100% most loved shot of the day...

Isn't she gorgeous!? I love her hands...

So anyway, I got some great shots and she was a trooper. She walked all over the lava rock in 100 degree heat with no shoes on. Well, I let her put her shoes on for the last one, that would hurt too badly to jump with no shoes!

*proving I have some semblance of empathy*

What else?Phew, there's been a lot! Ok...here goes.

We visited grandma Jewy (Judy...but that's how the kids pronounce her name and it's fitting since, well, she's a heeb):

I'm now down 76 big lbs!!! -4 to go until goal weight!!!

And planted our garden!

That's all from our simple life, how's yours?
