And Then Suddenly They Weren't Little Anymore ....

One day they are these tiny sweet little creatures, dependant on you for everything, and then far too soon you wake up to find they are entering teenhood  and you're hanging on to your seat for dear life, haha!
I snagged a rare opportunity to catch a few shots of my growing boys, before they outgrew their patience for me and my Nikon ;) 



Enjoy every moment with your precious "littles", because one day they won't be so little anymore. Mine are almost as tall as me now! (Yikes!)

And Then The Rains Came

I've found the best way to enjoy a thunderstorm is with a cup of tea and a cuddle with someone you love - in this case it was our one year old puppy . (Who snores when he sleeps ;)  I chose one of my favorite mugs , a birthday gift from my friend Gaby, and decided to document this rare occasion (rain in the desert) with a photo. 
May you always see the rainbows that come after the storm!

......and then I got an iPhone



It has been a year since my last post. Wow. A whole year.  And what have I done with all that time? You may not have even been wondering that but I'll tell you anyways ;). I finally crawled out from  the rock I'd been stubbornly hiding under and caved to the digital age -yep, I got myself a smartphone. And then, once the novelty of my new toy tamed down to a quiet appreciation, I finally began searching out ways to reignite my old passions for blogging and disconnect myself from the time wasting social media apps that were dulling my brain  and my senses. 
I'm ecstatic about this Blogger app. And as soon as I logged on with my phone and discovered it had been exactly one year to date that I stepped back from the blogging world (to take a much needed breakI) I knew the timing was no mere coincidence. The time had come to pour new life and inspiration I to this tired old blog!
 So to kick things off right, let's get some new pics up here!  Here's a fun (but brief ) look back over my past year ;)

And so begins a new year ! I will be starting September as a student, as I am going back to college this year (finally!) and I'm super thrilled to be getting to cross this super important, long-awaited item off the bucket list! 
Here's to a new year of memories, in photo form ;)
