Fall is here

and the biggest sign of it is the fact that our pellet stove is running it's little heart out again. I do not like it one bit!!! Not the stove but the fact that fall is here. It's only in the 40s out there. Why oh why do we live in this part of the country?

I am back to editing photos. This beautiful couple is expecting their second baby next year, they are such wonderful parents already and they are so cute!

their little boy is the one I had posted photos of previously :) I'll get back to those pics real soon, good thing they are in no hurry!

Gabrielle is still dating her little buddy, he is a good kid, so I don't mind it too much, but I need to still keep an eye on them :) This was taken by his mom at her house, they had a good time carving that pumpkin. They are cute together I must say.

Remember I promised I would post some pictures of my new car. Well, Gabrielle and I washed it on Saturday and Rachel took some pictures of me afterwards. Just look at the car, not at me please :)

It's a nice ride but boy, does it ever suck up the gas....

Rachel was finally allowed to go to her friend's house. I had told her she wasn't allowed to go anywhere until her room was cleaned up. She did a halfway decent job, at least the floor is visible again and it's a good start. There is nothing like motivation :) She still has lots to do but we can go from there.

Well, I did get a few pages done too

that blending class with Jana Morton is amazing, I am learning a lot of new tricks and I just love it! I have always admired her style and to learn to achieve it is such a treat!

Well, gotta go, Phil's waiting to watch a movie with me..

She is driving!

Gabrielle, that is! She got her permit and now I have to let her drive! Yikes! It's actually not that bad, but it's a good thing that she has 6 months before they will allow her to be let lose on society :) I really try to be calm and collected, but sometimes I am holding on with my toes, it seems like. I know she will get it....

Fall is definitely here! The pool is closed, it looks so sad. All the furniture is put away and we are gearing up for the snow... I can't bear to think about it.

I did a couple of photoshoots, I am just finishing up the photos for baby Travis. I took them on site with just natural light. It was a lot of fun, but you have to really be quick with the little ones. Thank goodness for grandma and the Iphone with the ringtones. We did get a few smiles from him :)

here are a couple of the shots I did so far

I am also taking a class by Jana Morton, who is an online friend and fellow CT member at Designer Digitals. She is teaching at Debbie Hodge and her class is on blending. Boy is it ever cool! I love watching her create her page and I love the little tricks she has up her sleeve. The class is full but I think they will offer it again in the winter. You should really consider taking it, I have never used the gradient tool the way she does LOL.

Anyway, these are the things that keep me busy in between running the kids around to their different things and the usual appointments etc. I was thinking to take hubby to see "The Help" tonight. I finished the book and really liked it. I would love to see it before they take it off.

We had a few gorgeous fall days with lots of sunshine and warmer temps. Now it's all dreary and colder again. Like I said, I am not liking this at all! I am still getting emails with house offers around Charleston. There is just no way for me to get down there, I can't leave the kids... maybe Phil should take a long weekend and fly down there or something. Dreams...

Our diet is going pretty well, one day I made a pot roast for the kids, other than that, we are not having meat. Of course the kids eat lunch at school so they get to cheat often, but for Phil and I it's all veggies. I actually like the stuff, it's just so much more work. All the chopping etc....

Well, almost time to take Rachel to voice and pick up my last batch of vegetables from the local farm (another sign fall is here)

Here are some pages...

Hey, if you have a minute, would you mind jumping over to my photography page on FB and click like? It would mean a lot, I am really trying to get my numbers up! Thanks so much and have a wonderful day!

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
