Recently my family and I spent some time in San Diego visiting with my niece. We were formally introduced to the newest member of our family, baby Jade. I also enjoyed the opportunity to finally meet my nephew, Tristan. I have to say, I can’t remember the last time I felt so much joy?
This visit was truly the boost of positive energy that I’ve been in desperate need of for a very long time. Being able to see my niece as a grown woman with a family of her own, and children that remind me of her when she was baby, is a touching shock to the emotional system. I’m so thankful that we live close enough to visit with each without boarding a plane, and I pray that we’ll see them more often than not.
The photos included represent just a fraction of the many that I created while on this trip. I look forward to witnessing, as well as, documenting, the growth and development of both Jade & Tristan over time.
I only wish we lived even closer so that I may visit with them whenever I choose to. Now that I’ve had a chance to meet little Jade I’m finding it incredibly difficult to stop myself from missing her. I love my family so much! 💙
Happy 4 Year Blogging Anniversary To Me!!!
I’m so very happy to announce my 4 year blogging anniversary! I can’t believe I’ve been at it this long?! Sometimes it’s very easy for me to write and post pictures, but other times it’s a very difficult task. You never really understand how much work goes into it until you start doing it. When I started out I had no clue how to even set up a blog, and by no means would I consider myself a “master blogger” now but, I have been expressing myself and sharing my work for the last 4 full years of my life. Needless to say I’m very proud of this accomplishment. I realize now how much dedication it takes to maintain a project like this in order to reach such a milestone.
Now I’d like to share a photo today exactly the same way as when I first started, with a picture of my little friend Adayah. As you can see a lot has changed! She’s no longer a little baby, she is, in her own words, a big girl now. I’m so grateful that her mother has allowed me to document her growth and development throughout the years as I’ve been privileged to witness her evolution as if she were one of my own children. This recent photo is just a quick snapshot from their last visit but, I hope to do a more formal shoot with the little lady to commemorate this special occasion very soon. Isn’t it amazing how time flies when you enjoy what you’re doing?
I’m honored and humbled. 🙂
It’s A Girl!!!
My close friend Jocelyn reveals to everyone the gender of her first pregnancy. Congratulations sweetheart!!! ❤
