Final Day_Day #12

As I wrap up this series I have to take a minute to say that this is one of the most important things about myself that defines who I am. I say this because it's true. Knowing this fact effects everything else I do. I am a child of God and he loves me, so much so that He sent his Son to die for me. As you enjoy your Easter Holiday remember the reason for the season. Jesus Christ died for us so that we might live again. That fact should drive the things we do, how we act to others, and give us so much hope for the future.
If you are looking for more information on the reason for the season please go here.

Day #11

Sorry for the short absence. The last few days have been crazy, and well it drags this out since this is the second to last one I have to post. This is one of the best things I have ever done, being a mom. I love my son, and I love my future second son and he isn't even born yet. Being a mom has been challenging, and hectic and surprisingly sometimes boring (but not often.) I think this image best represents the stage of motherhood I am in right now because though my son is adorable he never sits still, especially for pictures (he used to.) And even though we are almost always on the move I love it. Yay for motherhood!

Day # 10

This is one of the great joys of my life. Photography fulfills me, and my innate need to create. It is true that if you look through all the photographs I've ever taken a lot of them end up being flowers, so I felt that this was an appropriate image as it is one of the first I've taken this spring.

Day #9

This is one of my favorite things about being a stay-at-home mom. I have time (at least most mornings, with one child) to make a yummy breakfast. Breakfast is no longer grab what I can as I run to class, or skip it entirely. Breakfast is not always leisurely with an almost two year old, but it is almost always yummy :D

Day #8

Haha! Ok Mom I didn't realize this one was today. We were just talking about this last night. It is true I am a lister. I list and list and list. If something isn't written down it doesn't get done. By the end of the week I like my lists to look like one big scribbling pad as I've marked things off. It somehow fulfills me to know I got something done.

Day #7

I have multiple cookbooks and a few fall back standards but for the most part my cooking is done on the fly. I rarely have all the ingredients called for, I'm always substituting something or doing without and yet my meals turn out edible. (I'll leave it up to my hubby to say how good they are.) I also tend to find my recipes online based on what I have in the house. Someday perhaps I will take the time to plan ahead but for now this is part of who I am.

Day #6

Amateur is the best word for it. Sorry for the typo above, I didn't realize that until just now. I am not a speller I am a writer. I am sure others would scoff at that. Anyway, I write for the love of it. Someday I would love to be published, but I know how much work that takes so for now I write for the fun of it, and will someday when my priorities change work harder at it.

Day # 5

This is the truth. I am a sister of sisters. No brothers. Personally I love it, and wouldn't have it any other way. We are all super unique, and I love all my sisters like crazy. Sadly for years I have had to be a long distance sister. Who knows if that will ever change.

Day # 4

Where this isn't something unique to me alone in the world, it is something I do a lot of. Part of why I clean is because it is deeply instilled in me by my mother, and because since becoming a mother I see the need for clean house.

Day #3

Where some of you may argue with me that the above statement isn't true. I haven't lived in a home with a piano for over 6 years, and my beloved beautiful cello isn't pulled out much. So I am a lover with regrets and hopes for the future :D

Day #2

Come June we will have been married for four happy years.
This is definitely a big part of who I am today.

My Identity Project Day #1

This is project I planned to do over a year ago and never got around to. Recently another past classmate of mine started something similar, and our ward talent show was coming up so I figured why not. So in the last two weeks photographed this project. Each day for the next two weeks I will post one of the images until it is done. Hope you enjoy!

There are so many ways we identify ourselves throughout our lives. In high school my life revolved around music, in college my life revolved around photography. Shortly after I graduated from college I became a mother and was blessed to be stay at home with my son. However the sudden changes in my life left me wondering who I had become. It has taken me almost two years to begin to feel grounded and identified again. Here is my photographic exploration of my new identity.

Spring Time Blossoms

Don't you just love spring? The sun comes up earlier, grass starts to green, buds break out into snows? Haha, well here in Utah it does. At least it doesn't stick around a long time. Here's an image I took yesterday compared with two I took this morning. Funny isn't it :D
