Tea Time...

The temps have dipped and the winds are letting us find out just how drafty our old windows can be. I'm doing some book-keeping work this morning before the girls and I head out on a Halloween costume supplies hunt this afternoon. Danbo was nice enough to make me a cup of tea to help my typing fingers stay warm. He's so thoughtful...

That Girl With Pink Hair...

Bear with me, this post has been a long time in the writing. And as those of you who read this little old blog know, sometimes I have to write for therapy...and this here seems to be one of those times. After a good chat with a new friend this morning and a sweaty run followed by some emotion releasing Yoga this afternoon, I think I'm ready to sit down and try to organize my thoughts into sentences that hopefully somewhat convey some of what I've been needing to express over the past few months regarding our relocation. At least that is the plan.

It's always easier after the fact to look back and see how an event in your life connects to the universe's bigger picture...or bigger purpose. A little over 11 years ago we landed in Grinnell quite by mistake. Those first few months, even first few years, were not always easy as we tired to find our niche in the community. But find those niches we eventually did. In many ways our time in Grinnell was about growth. We grew as a…

Toddler Photo Shoot...

Shannon, whose wedding photos I took a few summers back, asked if I could take some pictures of her little boy this weekend. While following a slightly tired, kinda grumpy 20 month old around the playground can be a bit of a challenge of stamina and speed, it's well worth joy like this...


I'm building my portfolio...and I've started a photography share sight to promote it. The only way I'm gonna know if I can make it as a paid photographer is by putting myself out there. Here I go!

Obviously he has an opinion on which messages I need to give some attention...

A Short Photo Essay...

Here's the short version of what's been keeping me busy the last couple of weeks.

In the final days of September I spend most of my waking hours turning this...


into this...


and getting ready for this...


and the official opening of my new small business here in Carlisle! Yes, I can now officially say I am a small business owner (with government recognized organization and tax responsibilities and all)! Which translates into tackling all that comes with being the sole owner of a small start up business. I had one very crazy week of remodeling, decorating, promoting, cleaning, paperwork creating, and budget balancing (and not much sleeping) to prepare for opening the doors. Now, with 2 weeks of business in the books, I'm busy teaching, schedule tweaking, and brainstorming ways to get people in the door to check out a class so that I can do more teaching and schedule tweaking! The hard work needed for small business start-up is far from over, but it does seem a bit more manageabl…

Remember Me...

I am still here. I have so much I could share about the past few weeks, but I don't even know where to begin. So instead I bring you some playtime with Danbo. We are diggin' the fall leaves and hidden treasures found under.
