The Joy of Childhood

Well, my very special picture that I promised to post didn't turn out like I wanted it to.  So instead I offer you this picture of one of the great joys of childhood.  Catching snow on your tongue.  Did you eat snow when you were a kid?  I know I did and I thought it was great!  We had an awesome snow here a few days ago with these gigantic, fat flakes.  It only lasted about 45 minutes but it was absolutely gorgeous while it lasted.  And apparently it was tasty too!

Update Tuesday

Since certain people have demanded that I update my blog (ahem, Kim!), I decided I better get on the ball and update this thing!  I'll be taking a very special photograph later today that I'll be posting on here.  But until then, here's what's going on in my life.

I've been working hard on my house, remodeling way too many parts of it at once.  The kitchen cabinets are getting a face lift.  As soon as I finish those, granite countertops here I come!  You would think being a photographer that I'd be good at taking before and after pictures.  But no, I'm actually terrible about remembering to take a before picture.  But I will take an after picture.  I promise.  As long as I remember.

The basement is the other part of the house getting a little more than a facelift.  It's destined to be my photo studio so it has taken priority over all other things in life.  The demolition part is finally done, the plumbing is done, electrical is next week, then sheet rock the week after.  Once sheetrock is up, then I can finally start painting, decorating, and most importantly working down there!  I'm super eager to have a studio of my own and to be able to throw myself fully into my business.

And now for the good stuff.  A picture of Milo:)  Everyone always loves a picture of a Weimaraner, right?  I know I do.  He's not as melancholy as he looks.  He just hates having his picture taken.  Unfortunately for him, being a model is absolutely in his job description.

Good Friends

It's been a looooong time since I posted anything but I really wanted to share this picture with you.  Some of you have seen it already since I posted it on Facebook yesterday.

A very sweet friend of mine sent me this shirt for my birthday.  Not only did she send me this awesome shirt, but she also sent me some very cool Weimaraner napkins and the most delicious brownies to eat on the napkins.  Do I have great friends or what?  The coolest thing about this friendship, is that I met Molly (the friend) and her family all thanks to our common interest in Weimaraners.  I've always said that my dog friends are some of the best friends in the world and I think this proves it:)  Not only does Molly have a big heart when it comes to thinking of her friends.  But she also has a big heart for adoption.  As if adopting 3 Weimaraners wasn't enough, she and her husband are about to adopt their third human child.  Yes, you read that right.  Three fur kids and three human kids.  Wow!  Thank you, Molly, for thinking of me and giving me a gift that I know came from the heart.  I'll wear this shirt proudly!

If you want to know more about Molly and her family you can read her blog at:  http://teamparkerblog.wordpress.com/.  Read it and be inspired to do something good for someone else today.
