Blog Hop 3 Things.....

The Blog Hop this week is: Tell me 3 things you didn't know about me. I am focusing them around my oldest, Jake because today it is all about him......since it is his birthday!!!!!
~Jake fueled my passion for photography ever since he was days old. I just couldn't believe that he was mine!!!! We had to leave him in the hospital for one night after they discharged me from having him. We were NOT prepared for that at all!!!!! I feel for all of those babies that are born prematurely or with heart truly breaks for them.

~ I fought with my brother like crazy while we were growing up even though we were 8 years apart. It's crazy how Jake acts JUST like him at that age!!!!! No wonder Jake idolizes his Uncle Matt and they get along like 2 peas in a pod!!!

~ I am EXTREMELY thankful that my epidural worked while I delivered him because it didn't work when I gave birth to my I know the difference!! It made me not so angry at my hubby when he ran out to Burger King to get something to eat at 11:45pm because "this was my first child and I was only dilated to 6".........Jake was born at 12:21am. Yes, it's true that he almost missed the birth of his son for a whopper.......but my epidural worked and I wasn't at all upset.

Happy Birthday Jake!!!! We love you!!!!

I LOVE Summer Photo Contest

There is nothing I love more than the summer, the beach and pictures of my kids. So when I checked out An Island Life and saw she was having a Summer Photo contest, I knew I was in!!!! The hard part however, is narrowing it down to just ONE photo. I guess if I were forced to then this would be it. Jake was 5 and Jaise was 1. He was showing her the "ropes" to the beach and where all of the best sand castle building spots were at. My VERY talented friend sketched this for me in a size of 16x20 and it is hanging in my living room.....I guess that could qualify it for one of my favorites!!!!
Anyway, check out An Island Life starting July 21st and vote for my photo!!! Remember, you get what you give me lots of votes!!!!

Great Gift Idea

Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
