NEW YEAR

LOOKING BACK

2008 – I cannot believe that it has come and gone already!

I started this blog in January of 2008 with the idea of an angel looking over my typing – my banner has changed once since then – not for lack of trying. The general public thought maybe it would be better to keep with Julie & Tyler since that is my signature image – and I love it just as much as when I snapped it.

Last year at this time I had a few wedding bookings and prospects – this year I have 11 bookings with some other inquiries. Senior pictures should take off a little more – along with families. SO EXCITING.

I have another camera and am looking at a computer to buy once the EXPO is done and I have some bookings from that (hopefully).

2008 started without any indication that my jaw would ever feel right and normal – would ever be healed. I sit here now and tell you that it is healed. God has healed me. I still have little twinges here and there – but I know that God has healed me and given me a quality of life that I didn’t think I would ever have again.

2009 is starting with the promise of complete healing and a family. I am now at the point where thinking about having a baby is a reality – not just something to dream about.

Last year Jared and I tried to read through the Bible together and we made it to the end of January – this year – my goal is to read through it together – NO MATTER WHAT – no excuses.

I have a few other goals –

watch less TV –

exercise more –

spend less –

trust more –

worry less –

love more –

fight less.

Spend more time seeking God’s wisdom and truth.

Spend less time dwelling on the past.

Spend more time looking toward the future.

God doesn’t have any resolutions – He keeps His promises.

I think that is amazing – God doesn’t forget to love us.

This new year – I want a renewed spirit – I want to feel God’s love all around me!

MERRY CHRISTMAS

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE -

Jared and I spent the night at his parents – right next door to us – last night after church. We woke up this morning and had the traditional sticky buns then opened our gifts.

Jared and I are giving each other Schrute this year – so no gifts opened from each other. But we did get a Christmas surprise in the form of a new video and new pictures posted of little Schrute. Jared’s parents also got us a book about great danes!

Next Christmas we are looking forward to spending it with Schrute and hopefully another new addition by that time or the anticipation of one!

MAY YOU KNOW THE JOY OF THE LORD THIS CHRISTMAS!

Here are the new pictures of “little” Schrute -
