I can't believe it's been about a month since I've written here. So much is happening and keeping me busy that I haven't found the time. But if I'm going to be honest, I think I've also outgrown this space. So I've been trying to make a new space and internet home. Who knows when/if I will actually get it done....but I'm hoping.

So my awesome, wonderful, beautiful sister let me take her photograph for a certain project she's working on. But here is where you come in.......
I've included some of my favorites and we'd like you to pick your favorite- which is the one she will use for her project!!! (I'll fill you in more later!)
Please list your favorite in the comment section here (or via facebook if that's where you found this). We'd really appreciate it!!!!!!
October, typically my favorite month has been a whirlwind. Good and bad. But instead of focusing on the bad, I figured I'd share the awesome.
tons of Chloe time- she always cheers me up (except when attacking my face, haha)
lots of time with friends. especially my amazing girl friends!
photo shoots! (more to come!!)
dressing up (devil and rosie the riveter)
Can't wait to see what November brings. Hopefully only good.

What's left to lose?
I've done enough.
And if I fail, well then I fail but at least I gave it a shot
..... but now it's time to get out of the desert and into the sun.
Even if it's alone.

There honestly just isn't much to share lately (at least that's good). Call me a debbie downer, right now I'd just go with it. I'm trying my hardest to get through this rough patch of life, but I feel like my head is barely above water.
Someone send help asap!
But as my grandfather would say- it's just one damn thing on top of another.

Lately this place has been quiet. I've thought about posting, but then when I sit down to do it I just can't figure out what I want to say or share.
October has been my favorite months for awhile. It always holds a fresh start (Fall) and lovely traditions. It also has a particular day that I look forward to every year in hope of something good occurring on it. (See here, here, here, and here.) But October has brought me only 2 things- one good and one terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing (I got that from this cute kid's book,fyi).
Good- my little pup turned the big 1!! I can't believe she's not a puppy anymore!
Bad- Steven and I broke up. I'm still trying to put into words how I feel about this and I just can't seem to manage the appropriate ones. It's a difficult situation after a 3 1/2 year relationship. And while I am putting this factoid out there, I don't plan on discussing it here. But life will be extremely different and I guess that goes for this little blogger space too.

This past weekend I met this fabulous lady and her adorable pup to take some beach photos. I love how her fun and sweet personality shows through some of these pictures- and I'm so happy to share a few of my favorites!

School has been busy and some stressful, but I'm taking it day by day and praying more. And some of my kids are the sweetest and make me smile (see the last photo).
This past weekend I got a phone call from family in Alabama, telling me my aunt, who has been struggling with her health, passed away. It was a hard thing to hear, especially since our family is already so small and we use to be so close. The funeral is this coming weekend, and while I'm glad I will get the chance to pay my respects, I'm also a bundle of emotions about it as well.....
And the good? It's not my news, but I'm so very happy for my friends. One is getting married this Friday!!!!! And the other found out she's pregnant (hence the 2 bouquets of flowers photo above).
And then there's the rest.....fantasy football, trying out a costume for Chloe, getting new classroom books for my students to read, flowers and cards from my friends and co-worker friends, photoshoots and great news: my first paid photoshoot in a couple of weekends!!!!
And that's been my life. Ups and downs, goods and bads. As is life I suppose.
