Good Things Are A Comin'

...and I promise, when each one happens, I will share them with you. In the past month I have attended some amazing workshops that left me feeling inspired and motivated. I am filled with new ideas and excited (and nervous) be begin this new chapter of my life. I look forward to:

the launch of my business...
rockin' logo ((hugs)) to Kristen:)...
new and improved blog...

Macro photography fascinates me; however, it is also something my camera doesn't have a setting for. Thanks to Ryan and Holly, I learned to achieve macro images using what they call a "poor mans macro". This little tool produces macro settings without the cost of a macro lens. Love it!

I'm Still Here...I promise

I have been absent lately in my little blogging world. In fact, I kinda miss typing along my ramblings on my computer. I miss attaching photos of what I see. I had been meaning to send out a little shout to let you all know that I still do exist, I promise. So when Cathy, a fellow blogger questioned if I was okay, I thought it might be about time to get to that post. On a side note, make sure to check out her blog here. Cathy, thank you for checkin' up on me. First, I am doing just fine. Second, I want to apologize for neglecting my blog. My hope is to be up and running again soon. Truth is, other than the workshop I attending last weekend, I haven't even picked up my camera in the past two weeks. Eek, I am ashamed to even admidt that.

Brian has been working feverishly on our "new" lawn which means I have also been enlisted to help. We have been tearing up, dragging, seeding, watering, blah blah blah, for the past two weeks. Passersby’s probably assume we are planting a field of corn. And until green grass pops through, I will leave my fingers tightly crossed.

Friends of our have recently purchased a home a few doors down from ours. We have been helping them in the renovation process from tearing out the old and bringing in the new.

My hunt for a new computer is almost complete so our weekend runs to Grand Rapids will be coming to a close. I am truly bad at making important decisions.

I have been also trying to work on a little spring cleaning. Whoo-hoo spring! Now if only the warmer weather would finally stick. We have quite a few little birds that look so miserable huddling together in the trees. It makes me want to give them a heating lamp.

The dogs have a bad bout of spring fever so Brian and I have been trying to make sure they recieve daily walks.

And now that the weather is starting to break this whole me working days and Brian working nights has really thrown a monkey wrench into our schedule. Thankfully, it looks as if this will be changing soon. He may possibly be moving back to the day shift.

So, I am still here. Still alive. My blog however, has been receiving the abuse of our hectic schedule. Good things are coming...I promise!
