Blissfully Married

These two got married last September in Vegas. They got a package deal that included a photographer and they decided they wanted some more pictures. On Sunday we met up at the Como Park Conservatory. We had to work quickly as the photography permit was only for 30 minutes. I don't "do" Weddings at this time but was delighted to work with this couple on their portraits.

Live. Love. Laugh. Embrace.

Salad spinner could save lives!

I read this article yesterday and was very impressed. If someone can take a salad spinner and make it into a device that can identify anemia without expensive technology, what other possibilities are out there. Wow, way to go girls. Way to take a simple project and turn it into something that will change lives!

Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves way to solution. David Joseph Schwartz

Curly haired boy

This curly haired boy loved exploring the trails at our place. He was excited to go on more and more trails! In between exploring, we got some great pictures. He is going to be 4 next week.

Life is an adventure!

Reassuring touch

Like the gentle hand of God reassuring me that everything is just as it should be, a butterfly landed on my right knee three times yesterday.

If We Hold On Together

If We Hold on Together
By Diana Ross
Don't lose your way
With each passing day
You've come so far
Don't throw it away
Live believing
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope & glory
Hold to the truth in your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end
Valley, mountain
There is a fountain
Washes our tears all away
Words are swaying
Someone is praying
Please let us come home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

When we are out there in the dark
We'll dream about the sun
In the dark we'll feel the light
Warm our hearts, everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
As high as souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and I

Dog, Cat, Rat

This makes me smile!

Live Now

And my soul whispered quietly, " Live now! Do not wait for circumstance to begin doing what you love. Give attention to your dreams and believe in them. Be who you are and be here now."

Garden Love

Our first garden! We've got cucumbers, peppers, radishes, sweet peas, carrots, onions, spinach, lettuce and tomatoes....and we did have radishes but we gobbled them up already!

It really is more exciting than I thought and I think Matt would agree. Seeing something grow from a seed into something edible, it's out of this world cool. It has become a topic of interest and we look forward to seeing the progress every day.

Cucumbers...should be ready soon!

Look at this cute little pepper...resembles an umbrella huh?!

Thanks for visiting my garden! I will post updates as the Summer goes on!
On another note, I have decided to simplify my life by going back to just one blog. This blog right here. So, if you are a fan of my Share Kindness Now blog, I won't be blogging over there anymore. Feels good to just be back to one!

Live. Love. Laugh. Embrace.
