Hi friends!!! How I've missed you all. I've been very neglectful of my blog,,,sorry. I hope you are all doing well and are having fun!! I am having the most insane year, but it's a good insane! I wake up, go to work for eight hours come home, talk to my husband, make dinner,{well, I don't make dinner every night,,maybe once a week} I usually have an array of nightly events like, meeting up with my bestie, playing soccer, dinner at my moms, and so on. I have trouble saying "no",,,I am definitely a "YES" person!! It's more fun that way. Anyhoot, just wanted to share with you one of my newest hobbies, photography. I recently started dabling in this and I can say that I am having tons of fun!!! My brother and his wife have been the best for letting me take photos of them! I think I've already shared some of these with you, but I haven't shared their cute little bundle of joy!! Oh, how I love her so much!! there is nothing better than a brand new baby!! They are so cute!! And she is so precious!!!

my brother in his wife,, he was very lucky to find such a good person!! she is awesome and we love her so much!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!!! My house is full of boys watching the football game!!!

Project Monday,,,

Happy Monday! Wanted to share with you the project I created for one of the photos I took for my Appointment with Friday! I decided to use my palm tree background. I printed the image on 81/2 x 11 paper. I then created a layout on top of it. Used some green patterned paper, some fab rips from studio calico and red prima flowers. The little tot is my niece. I took this picture last year during a trip to the local pumpkin patch. I felt this picture went well with the palm tree background. It was pretty fun using a picture as background! Hop on over to bubblegum life and check out the fun photo prompts!!

sunday, appointment with bubblegum life,,,

Hello Everyone!! This past Friday I had an appointment with bubblegum life. The appointment this week was The backdrop of your life. For this appointment, i took to my backyard and starting exploring. I had a blast!! In my collage below i took pictures of the grass, a flower, the roof, and a palm tree trunk. It was was really neat for me to do this. I was able to see things in a different light, and just appreciate the little things. I know corny, but it made me realize how much I don't stop to smell the flowers. Make sure you stop over at bubblegum life and check out what Carrie did!! She has some amazing backdrops!!

Check back tommorow for Project Monday!!

happy Sunday!!'
love, Nely
