Catching Up: Photography, Life etc.

It’s been three-ish weeks since my last post. Life got a little busy for a minute there.
I’ve also been enjoying the busy-ness and the summer.
So Danny is gone training, which I’ve touched on before, but he will be visiting over the 4th of July weekend. So that’s awesome.

I’ve launched my small business ->

I’ve had a few session so far. They’ve been free but I wanted to build up my portfolio. And so far it has been good.
Of course I’m really enjoying it. It’s so fun trying new things and learning along the way.

I’ve been hanging with Annabel and I have seen some of my friends who I haven’t seen in months.

It’s been a good past couple weeks but I really do miss Danny and I know Annabel does too.

Of course Annabel is too cute.


Danny and I ran some errands over the weekend and we got some flowers and cacti for the house.
I’m trying to brighten up the house for spring.

I also started rearranging some decorations and switching around picture frames.

Annabel absolutely loves her Frisbee.
The whole  fetch thing is still a little difficult for her though.
She likes to pretend she’s going to give it to you then run away.

These are photos from Mother’s Day.
I’m glad we got to see everyone and that it was so nice out!

Pretending it’s summer and making this bracelet.


Also working on a baby blanket.
Not that it’s needed. I just had extra yarn to use!


Enjoying our ‘love’ bookshelf.


Cuddling with Annabel


Enjoying the first date with just the two of us in a long time!


Making small Wedding purchases.

We switched Annabel’s food
and we couldn’t even put it away before she was digging in.


Baked these Valentine’s Day brownies a few weeks too late.

Painted in Waterlogue

Enjoying the Waterlogue app.
Hopefully I can do something artsy with this.

I got some Valentine’s Day decor over the weekend.
Gotta love Target’s cheap section-
you know, right when you walk in and there’s a ton of stuff you really don’t need
but buy anyway.


I recently got this bar cart and I’m still working on how to decorate it
and what items to add to it.
Now it’s just filled with junk.
(From Target-70% off!).


And this cute P for our last name.
Well soon to be mine.


We began the updates to the master bathroom and bedroom.
I am so excited to see it all finished.
And I will be sharing many more photos-of course.


Annabel is too cute and hates getting up early.
She makes it so difficult for me to get up and leave for work.
