Let's try this again...

I'm back!

It has been only two years since my last blog post and I've really been itching to get back at it.  Life has changes so much since my last blog post and it seems I have even more to talk about and more things that I want to share! 

Since my last post, Todd and I have celebrated our 4th wedding anniversarry and we've welcomed our son Jackson into the world.  He's almost 8 months old (on June 13th) and has brought us more joy that could ever be explained.

I'm currently obsessed with Instagram (find me: ashlyebrink) and Pinterest (look for Ashlye Brink) and being Todd's wife and Jackson's mommy.  When I have any spare time (mostly after Jackson goes to bed...) I like to browse my favorite blogs and watch reality television with my hubby.  Even if he doesn't want to. ;)

Here are some photos from this last weekend to get this party started.  I don't know how often I'll be posting but I'm hoping it will help me to keep track of the memories we are making.  I take pictures constantly so this will be a good way to force myself into editing them more often and sharing them with our friends and family.  I love sharing a little bit of our lives with you and I hope that someone finds my little bit of cyber space to be at least slightly entertaining!! 

Jackson playing blocks with Daddy.

This kid loves playing in the water...check out those two tiny teeth finally coming through!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and their week so far!  I know it is only Monday but we can do this!  I'll check back during the week to document more that our little family has been up to.  Until then... Happy Monday and Goodnight!!

Ally: Senior Session

-fishers, in-

My little sister graduated from Ball State on Saturday and my family and I could not be more excited for her! Just a few days before graduation, we met up to take some "senior pictures" in celebration of her college degree! Ally, we are so proud of you and I hope you like the pictures! You are beautiful and so smart and you are on your way to many, many great things!!!

With lots of love! Your Big Sister =)

Engagement: Jennifer & Shane

-indianapolis, in-

Todd and I met up with Jennifer and Shane downtown around the Canal and Indiana State Museum. I just want to tell you how they were troopers! The temperature was a high of 17 degrees and it was snowing. I've never been so bundled up in my entire life but it was SO worth it! We made our way from the Canal to the Circle and then to the Central Library. They were so much fun to work with and we cannot wait for their wedding in July! Thank you for having so much fun with us!!

Procelli Family

Happy New Year!!

It has been much too long between blog posts and I'll do my best to keep it up this year! I was able to spend a little time with the Procelli family on Christmas Eve, Eve (yes, that is a real day!) and had such a good time.

Susan has 3 boys, Michael, Tom and James. Michael has just (and by just, I mean within days!) returned from Navy boot camp and is now a Naval Pilot Officer Candidate. Congratulations!! From the sound of it, it's just been too long since the family has been together and had a few pictures taken. Susan, you are a great mom to three very handsome boys and you guys couldn't have been much nicer to me! Thank you for letting me into your home and capturing these special moments with you and your boys!

I want to wish Susan, Michael, Tom and James the happiest year yet!!
Below is James, Tom and Michael.
I think this next one has to be my favorite. They were "fake laughing" but in reality I think they were really laughing because they thought I was crazy for asking them to "fake laugh" Oh well... it is still my favorite!! =)

Thank you Procelli Family!!

little ones: kaedon

-indianapolis, in-

At the end of August, I met with with long-time pal, Krystle, and her son Kaedon. We thought it would be fun to get some pictures of Kaedon because he just turned 5! He's growing like a weed and turning into such a wonderful young man. We really enjoyed our time at the IMA and I hope Krystle, Kaedon and family loves the pictures as much as I do. Krys, you've got quite a model on your hands!

p.s. everyone be ready for blog upload overload... I'm on a mission tonight to get more caught up!!


he just loves to cuddle with his momma...

Thank you both for such a fun day! I'm glad that Todd and I (you know, my man-friend) could help and enjoy a lovely day with you both! =)

Summer 2009 - An Update

So here we are, its August and it is time for an update on what we've been up to this summer. Here is a review of the last few weeks... in my favorite form... photos!

Todd is so cute... He just turned 28 on the 17th... happy birthday honey!!!

Todd and his twin, Carrie. Nice smiles!

The Monster.

Just playing around... I love these flowers in our front yard. They have been blooming off and on all summer. I'll be sad when summer is over and the flowers are gone.

Happy Birthday to me! My parents sent me a little gift in the mail for my birthday. I'll have to post a picture of the cute little necklace that I found inside. Thank you both!

Playing with the Lensbaby...

Ally got me a book that describes what our dreams mean. This is my new "dream journal" to write down what I was dreaming about the night before. That way I'll remember them and be able to look them up in my new book! Thanks for the wonderful birthday gift Al! I've already remembered 3 dreams!

I love this. I want to blow it up and hang it in our living room.

My grandparents met us at PF Changs for lunch last Saturday. The meal and the company was pretty great. And I made them get their photos taken before everyone left. I always do!

One word... yay...

One of the many cute cake toppers on my birthday cake...

More cake... ice cream cupcakes from Cold Stone Creamery. Thank you Todd!

Todd and Carrie's birthday cake. All lit up!

Ally. I love this one.

I hope everyone else is having a wonderful summer!
