Around the backyard

Around the backyard there are roses growing where they shouldn’t. Around the backyard there is dying grass where our two new dogs are peeing and destroying the grass. Around the backyard there is dog poop that needs to be picked up, especially in the sand pit. Around the backyard there is evidence that children live... Continue Reading →

It’s looking like spring.

It's been fun watching my orange tulips sprout from the pot.  Tonight we had pork tenderloin in the crock pot with fingerling potatoes, fresh sliced button mushrooms and topped with cream of mushroom soup; and slow cooked for 10 hours. Can you say comfort food? You have to try it!

Sunsets and frozen yogurt.

So, I haven't used my camera in a while. Just not in the mood I guess. On Thursday it was usually warm here in Denver. 70 degrees warm. I took my camera and the girls to the park just before sunset. Gorgeous! I slept for 12 hours this weekend. Don't judge. Obviously I needed the... Continue Reading →

Are You Checking Me Out?

Found this hanging out upside-down by my front door today. I think he was checking me out. Are Praying Mantis native to Colorado?

Once I put away my SLR camera 10 years ago and went to a point-and-shoot digital I forgot it all! You'd think it would be like riding a bike. Tonight we are meeting with the last ice skate coach and... Continue Reading →

In the Moment Photography | Monday

Hubby bought me a new Sony DSLR camera for my birthday this weekend. I've been playing with the settings all weekend, even taking pictures my birthday dinner...

In the Moment Photography | Spring Snow

Ah, spring is here. And Springtime in Colorado means snow. Not much. It melted by noon. But I rushed outside to take in a few pictures this morning before that happened. It was so quiet. A bird chirped in the background. Fresh snow blanketing spring blooms on the plum trees. We have 2 types of... Continue Reading →

my favorite child

To my oldest daughter, You are my favorite. You introduced me to the world of motherhood. Together we navigated potty training and riding a bike. I love that I was the one who primarily taught you to ride your bike without training wheels...3 days of running behind you in the street, it was so worth... Continue Reading →

eye candy

I haven't posted pictures in awhile. (Drum roll) From my lens: It's a good thing we don't have to live off what I grow because this is the only ripe tomato I have gotten this year!
