- I love God!! I am a travelling RN working in labor & delivery. I have an AWESOME son & daughter in law and a brand new grandson! They will be fabulous parents because THEY are outstanding. I love the Seattle Seahawks...my favorite player hands down is Richard Sherman for a number of reasons. I love to draw portraits and I am dabbling with mixed media painting...I suppose I'm an artist! I love photography, but I'm a novice & am constantly practicing as I make my way through God's wonderful creation.

YAY for 2011
Wow, I waited and waited for this year to come. It signifies the end of some seriously terrible things and the beginning of some seriously wonderful ones!
I had the pleasure for the second year in a row of being here, my true home on New Year's Eve.
With Kory...my awesome son and....
My awesome & beautiful Mommy.
We had a blast that night. We saw a movie, had dinner & bummed around the beautiful city for a bit before watching the show at the Space Needle to welcome what promises to be the very best year ever.
A few other places I've visited already this year...
Second Beach...Kory & I climbed atop a seastack for a pic :)
Kory climbed this one (at Second Beach again) alone. You can see him on top of the stack to the right between the trees.
It shows us how very small we truly are in God's creation.
The three of us at Rialto Beach at sunset. Standing on the shore of the magnificent Pacific, watching and feeling the waves crash against the rocks and the shore just brought us closer to the realization of how tiny we are in this world God fashioned for us. It is so humbling to realize that our God, who is perfect, spoke all of this into existence just for US! We take the joys of life for granted so much! We don't see what we have, things that are right in front of us and we misuse and mistreat them. Wow. We enjoy the beauty of all this, yet we can't even fathom what heaven holds for us. Imagine, this is SO marvelous...it's almost undescribable and it's NOTHING compared to what God has in store for us in the afterlife.
Of course, we had some more conventional fun as well....
Yes...IN YOUR FACE
To all you St. Louis fans...the Hawks Clinched the NFC Championship!
Ok, ok....so that's as far as it went, but it's okay, we were there to see it!!
For 2011??? SEASON TICKETS! Oh YEAH!
Practice Day 1:
Yes, for Christmas I did get my Cannon 50D :)
(Thanks Mom!!) Here I'm practicing with it at Wallace Falls State Park.
Ok, I know, I need LOTS of practice...but what a better place to be? The Pacific Northwest is a photographers paradise! I have all the time in the world to practice here!!
Practice Day 2:
A few more practice shots up on Hurricaine Ridge one frigid evening.
Many people were skiing and snow playing on the ridge this particular day.
Still learning how to balance the lights & darks...but maybe you get the idea.
Practice Day 3:
Out on the Dungeoness Spit...Mount Baker was perfectly visible!
I played with my black & white settings a little. What a spectacular day it was!
Once I got back to town...I couldn't help but stop and head out onto the pier to try and capture the magnificent sunset over Mount Baker! One of these days....I'll get it down! I'm sure having fun trying!
So many photographers around. I'm definitely an ameteur. What I really need to do is hook up with a pro and have them teach me everything they know. :)
So....I'm blogged out for the day! I'm going to try not to neglect you, blog, because we ALL know I have plenty to say...just haven't been sayin it to you! Expect much more frequent tidbits.
I'm inspired. I shall remain this way, I just don't plan to disappear for any period of time again...no, I'm definitely here to stay.
2011.....HERE I COME.
