i have found my bliss

It all started with a picture. A picture of my family that spoke to me....

So many of you might be wondering where on earth I have been... well, you all know how I love to take pictures and I love to archive and make photo books. It has been a passion of mine so for some time and I have decided to go out on a limb...a big one... Oh gosh...so I started a new company. You all know me well enough to know that I can't sit still for very long. I am a very driven, passionate person and I MUST keep that energy channeled. I have fallen in love with something that to some people is just ordinary, just a day to day occurance. Well- let me tell you....to me...it's my passion, my therapy, it's a story, it touches peoples lives & their hearts. It makes you thankful, appreciative, blissful. I hope my new little business touches you the way that one little photo touched me.

This has been quite the journey this last few weeks. But I hope that in the end my decision and all of the time, thought, shots {with the camera people..hint hint}, will pay off in the end.

I am proud to annouce the launch of:
Bliss Boutique Photography. Capture your life. Capture your Bliss.

post valentines day post

okay... so I admit Valentine's Day is not one of my favorite holidays...most women can relate.
But after looking at so many blogs the past few days... Oh!
All the love...
Well...Cupid hit me a long time ago.
A long time ago, back in 1997 I was a cowgirl & he was a cowboy.
{he will always be}
From the moment we met at the rodeo dance my life has never ever been the same. Ever.
At the age of 17 I knew he was meant for me. But did I...we both were so young and so in love and lived in totally different states and grew up in two different worlds. But Someone had a plan... A bigger plan than we ever imagined. That plan or that Someone kept us together- as we grew up together. {literally}
When we both found our paths in life,
{more like a very long dirt road}
it was a breath of fresh air when we realized we were on the same one.
{ahhh...yes there are so many details in between but...}
I married my cowboy. He married his rodeo queen. True Story.
So as our dirt road took so many twist and turns and
sometimes switchbacks I have come to the conclusion that:
I have found my soulmate
I have married my best friend.
I love him more every day and even more after the day I get mad at him. :)
He knows me like no one has ever known me.
He loves me like no one has ever loved me.
He believes in me.
He listens to me.
He helps me.
He is a good man.
He is an even better dad.
He loves his family with all of his soul.
He would protect us.
He would die for us.
He makes me smile.
He makes me cry.
He makes me mad.
He always says "sorry" first.
He is humble.
He is my rock.
He is more things to me than I could ever list. Than I could ever say. I try...but I somehow can never find the right words. More than anything...I think we (i) get so busy in our day to day life. Our little routine. Our kids, jobs, hobbies, friends- that list could go on forever, that we (i) forget to remind him and myself, just how important he is to me. So...I guess this is why this silly little holiday we call Valentine's Day is even in exsistance.
It's a reminder.
A reminder to me, to make my Valentine feel like a Valentine every day.
happy valentines day.

sissy

100% Pure Sissy.
1. The hair that I had probably done so cute with bows-
that she took out in the car.
{so it gets that bump in it where the rubberband was}
2. Her pearl {plastic} necklace that is peaking from under her shirt.
3. Her token "Gold Princess High Heels" from her Halloween Costume.
4. Her school uniform sweater.
5. Her pink sequin purse.
{who knows what you will find in that-
barbie shoes to candy wrappers}
6. Those eyes.
{oh- how does it get any better than that...}
7. Her smile.
{it melts my heart}
8. Her Heart.
{it makes me smile.}
9. Her Hugs.
{she gives them out several times a day}
10. I absoulutly adore you. All of you. You little fashionista!

size matters

"No mom, I want the big bowl"
Dylan said with a whining, 3 year old boy voice.
"Look buddy- mommy got you your own bowl
and I will put your own popcorn in it, just for you!"
Yes- I see it is purple- but who cares...

Uh... I guess he did!

So he sat and ate his popcorn out of the big bowl.
And never touched that little purple bowl.
It's all about the size...when you are 3.

...in due time

Can't hardly imagine this little girl getting married.
dreaming, dancing, singing
Ahhh. the thought just melts my heart.
I don't want her to grow up.
I am sooooo enjoying these dress up days.
If only we {all of us} could still play dress up...how simple life would be.
i love you baby girl.
