50 years is a wonderfully long time

My Grandparents celebrated their 50th anniversary today! They are such great people and wonderful examples to their family and those around them. We had a gathering last night at Sundance to celebrate their anniversary and Kevin’s birthday. Interestingly, Kevin has been a live half as long as they’ve been married. Continue Reading

To the Doctor again… well… Car doctor at least

Mr. Bugg had to be towed to the car shop late Sunday night after he wouldn’t start. This is the second time he’s been this month. Thank goodness for car insurance that covered towing. It saved us a lot of hassle and stress. Turns out gas isn’t getting to the engine and thus can’t start.… Continue Reading

Taylor Swift look alike

My cousin Sami looks very much like Taylor Swift, although much prettier of course. I wanted to take some portraits using natural lighting and she was a great model. Thanks! Continue Reading

I love fishes cause they’re so delicious!

School is back in full swing. After one day I already have two pretty big assignments. The first is finished so I thought I would share! Our assignment was this… A magazine needs a photography for an article that is not yet written. However, they know these 5 words will be in it: Fall   —  … Continue Reading

As summer ends…

I can’t believe school starts this week! I’m very excited though! For those of you who haven’t heard, I just found out I’ll be receiving a full tuition scholarship for my last two semesters. It’s the Deans Merit Scholarship which is based on GPA and my portfolio. I feel very blessed to have received it.… Continue Reading

Dishes and Cupcakes

As I’ve started photographing more food I’ve developed a love for cute dishes. I love shopping for dishes and napkins! There are so many colors, shapes, and textures. I could spend hours looking at them all. We recently went to Ikea where I added a few new things to my collection. I’ve noticed I tend… Continue Reading

Peaches for you, peaches for me

I love peaches! They are one of my favorite things about fall. Costco had some white flesh peaches that I had never tried before. They looked pretty good so we bought some. They may just be the best peaches I have had. They are so sweet and full of flavor! They are fantastic with cottage… Continue Reading

Someone found me!

Ever since I “announced” my new website I have been trying to upload images to a site called Foodgawker, which is a place where food bloggers and others upload pictures for all to see. The images link to the person’s blog. Well, I received a comment on one of my posts but nothing since. I’ve… Continue Reading

Taco Salad

I love taco salads. Anything from Taco Amigo to Cafe Rio to homemade. This is a homemade version I had for dinner last night. It was delicious! I have to say that you can’t have a taco salad without ranch. I prefer the lime/cilantro kind, but regular works nicely in this case… Here’s the recipe… Continue Reading

Gooey Butter Cake

I love finding a new delicious cake/brownie recipe and this one is great! Kevin actually happened upon it while looking for a dinner idea. It is a twist on Paula Deen’s Gooey Butter Cake recipe. I didn’t have a yellow cake mix (quite a shock actually) so I substituted a chocolate cake mix, which we… Continue Reading
