I have been wanting for so long to get on my blog to update those of you that like to follow my blog. First, I apologize to you since I have not been good at all in keeping up with it. I have found myself the past few months coming to a place where I am being re-directed in my life. While I have been taking all kinds of classes, learning about my software for post processing (though I have Lightroom 3 I purchased over a year ago and still haven't looked into utilizing it!) and constantly updating my resources, I haven't taken time for this or taking a lot of pictures. I find myself in a season of my life where my photography still is important to me, enough so that I am looking at getting another great lens but not all consuming. Those of you that are into photography and post processing know that it's a never ending learning curve. One thing leads to the next and you can find all of your time and energy consumed with learning. I feel that I need to focus my attention more on my family and being completely available for their spiritual, emotional and any and all of their other needs. As you see below, I also have another little baby that is demanding a lot of my attention and time so I'm allowing myself to not feel like I have to do anything with my website (not that I was but I did feel pressure to) and devote myself to my family. Photography will still be here for me, I'll update from time to time with a photo or two but my main focus will not be here. I feel God calls us to care for our families and for whatever reason, he really wants me to devote myself to mine, just until I don't need to anymore. I have found that while I LOVE photography, it can be a distraction. The more I'm here doing this, on the computer, etc. the less snuggles, home cooked meals, time for chatting and games there is. If I'm on the computer, I'm not with them. I am choosing to take this time right now to embrace my blessings and help my little ones in every way I'm able and to support and be there for my husband. Which leaves me here, finding that my passion can be put on a burner in my life, still there and pursued but more at a simmer than a boil. Thanks for following me and if you have time here and there, you can always stop by to see if there is anything new! XXX ooo Time to start that home cooked meal I just talked about and spend some time with one of my wonderful children.
