I went to the skate park to get some shots of jarred & I cant believe how much he loves to skate, how happy it makes him & how good he has gotten. I took my old duaflex twin lens camera that I love, love & made a little froot loop cereal box contraption for it… the contraption is so that I can shoot photos thru this old camera, get that old camera look that I love but with the ease of digital. love it. Sophia has fun looking thru this old camera too & I love that…

I do a photo a day challenge on instagram. every day is a different word & I love how it challenges me to get my camera out every day, even days we aren’t doing anything exciting & I just shoot. I love that I have been doing it for a little over a year now & now we have an awesome, real documentation of our lives as we live them, day to day. love it.

the word last sunday was street, these are my shots.

when I feel like I am not inspired to be creative or just not inspired at all I like to get out the ink & brushes & play. it usually helps.

Sophia & her daddy. yes, father’s day is hard. this man in my life makes me smile when all I want to do is curl up & cry. he keeps me moving & reminds me that we are still alive, we are living these lives with each other & with these beautiful kids & he lets me cry & he lets me grieve & he also picks me up & reminds me that we are blessed…

and he makes me laugh so hard it hurts & I love that…

one of my favorite summer happenings is junkstock, love it. Mikayla her friend juma (Brianna), Sophia & I had a blast. I have been wanting an old school pull down map for the house & you wouldn’t believe how much people charge for these old things. the first one I saw was $90.00, I kept looking & found this one for $30 & I love it!! & of course I had to get this old gas station sign ‘5’…

I probably take more photos in one week than most people take in a year, ha. june was full of happy days, laughter, sunshine, rain, celebrating & some sad moments & frustrating days. but, that is life. the good the hard the sad the happy the beautiful & the ugly all rolled into one life.

bring on july.
