Are You Ready?

What is it about moving to another stated that makes a person look differently at what they have in life? Is it the major change factor that pushes us to realize things we neglected to see in the first place? And why is that? Why do we do that? I have this really deep desire to go out and document everything around me before we move back to Vegas and I was trying to figure out why I would feel the need to do that. It isn't like I will never see this place again, although the experience will be different next time being a visitor versus a resident. But for some reason I long to capture this moment in time of our lives. Interesting. Over our time here I have tried to appreciate what we have been provided and blessed with. Things like cool weather, green everywhere, wild life and just a whole different cultural experience. But I see that this is all about to change and want to somehow capture what we have and take it with us. Am I crazy? That's not the point really so please don't answer that. 
One thing I know for sure is that we are getting a second change to experience and enjoy (in a whole new way) the place we came from in the first place. I have many plans already in the works to help us take advantage of as much as we can of what we took for granted before. I learned my lesson the first time. And it was the move here that woke me up and opened my eyes to it all. The realization of just what we had and how badly we treated or ignored it. Be ready my friends, I will be knocking and calling and planning trying to include you in on my attempt to live and love life to the fullest. Are you ready?

Picture Pages!

A random photo from the river behind our hotel in Oregon. 
One of the streets of San Francisco!

As of late, I have gotten back into photography. I've always been into it as many already know. But lately I can't get enough. I think I will try to take a side class in photography later on after we move. So what do you think, am I any good?

My Baby Girl!

Okay, so I always say that my girls are my babies. I know, I'm in a sort of denial about it all. I'll work it out some day. For now I just sit in awe of how much they have grown. I look at the pictures from just a year ago and it is amazing and a little frightening all at once. We are blessed for sure. We celebrated Hailey's birthday at the park we frequently go to and I caught Hailey staring off over at some trees. When I asked her what she was looking at, she said she was just remembering all of the fun times she has had at this park, and she began to tell me all about where she first met each of her friends and some of the fun things they did. It was very cool for her to share that with me, and a little sad too. They have grown a lot here physically and emotionally. They have made some great friends and have learned a whole lot about the world. Northern California is certainly a different place from all others to live and learn.  We are going to miss it. But don't tell anyone I said that.  ;)
