About Me

My photo
This blog is about what happens to a former newspaper photographer when she becomes a mama and moves home to raise her kids. I'm a wife to my best friend Michael who is a photographer for the Tulsa World. I am a mama to two beautiful girls who make me laugh every day. I was born and raised in Oklahoma and I think it's a wonderful place to raise our children. I was a newspaper photographer for 13 years before leaving to stay home with my girls. One of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I am blessed with the ability to stay home with the girls mostly but also freelance photography some. Sometimes I can't believe I'm actually getting paid to do something that is so fun! I recently heard someone say "I spent my 20's thinking I knew everything and I have been spending my 30's proving myself wrong." I relate so much to that because I realized a while back that I spent my 20's thinking mostly about myself and my career and I have spent my 30's mostly thinking about our children and how I could stay home with them more and work less.

Happy 4th of July!

I went to a craft party last year at my dear friend Christy's house. A woman who was there (I can't remember her name or I would give her credit..Christy, do you know?) brought these terrific little tasty treats that I fell in love with!! If you like thin mint girl scout cookies then you'll LOVE these! You just take Ritz crackers and dip them in melted mint chocolate and amazingly enough it tastes just like a thin mint! I have taken them to several gatherings since then and they are always a hit with the kids and adults. My girls love helping me make them too. Easy! Oh...and like thin mints, they are even better frozen. : )
