my happy life.

- Fishers, IN -

Just a quick post to say that I love my life. Here are a few things that I love.

Bella helping me take some photos...

Pink flowers in my front yard...

My cute hubby...

More pink flowers...

Oooh. Purple flowers...

More cute hubby... and Bella.

Hooray. Just wanted to say that I'm happy for my life and for summer :)


- Indianapolis, IN -

I had the opportunity to spend a few hours with the wonderful Brooke and Pedro. I learned so much and was able to snap a few photos of them. They were nice enough to be our models and I think they look fabulous! We spent the day at the IMA and it was the perfect location. Check out their blog and their amazing photos. Thank you Brooke and Pedro!

Brooke actually took this shot with my camera and one of her lenses. I love it. I think that I need this lens now :) And... my ring looks so pretty!

Thanks again to my new friends Brooke and Pedro :)

Adventures in Gardening...

- Noblesville, IN -

We have been helping out with the garden at church. I can't say that I'm exactly a "green thumb" but I enjoy going out there with my family. Here are just a few photos of our recent gardening adventures.

My darling husband.

My little nephew, Landen. He was obviously out there to help us.

Landen's favorite boots.

Mom at the garden.

Another favorite... Mom holding a chicken. Priceless!

I just love the weeds!!

Todd and the lettuce. The first veggies ready to be picked!

The chickens!

Ally holding a chicken. This is my favorite. I can't not laugh at the look on her face.

4th (actually 5th) of July!

- Indianapolis -

Sunday, February 5th, we headed downtown to watch the fireworks. The actual 4th of July fireworks the night before had been canceled for the first time (that I'm aware of) due to rain and wind. It was actually a pretty cruddy day but the 5th turned out to be gorgeous and lots of fun. Here's us playing around downtown!

Barb, Carrie, Ally and I. We had good seats for the fireworks. We used my parking pass from work to go up to the top of one of the parking garages. You'll probably find us in the same spot next year!

Isn't my baby sister so pretty?!

Sisters :)

This is Ally's first photo with little Molly. She was so excited to finally meet her.

Our nephew, Jacob, making "scary" faces at the camera. Good job!

Ally with her sparkler. We love sparklers. You may have noticed this already!

This next one is a bit blurry (we were having focus issues) but I still like it. Oh and Todd is trying to look shorter so that Ally didn't feel the smallest :)

I know it is a bit late but I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th (or 5th!!) of July
