A Little Life Story
This really IS embarrassing…. You know, when “Life happens” and important things (like this blog) become NOT so important. When it does, it is not always pretty or business friendly. This is a personal post so if you aren’t up for that, I suggest you click past to a previous post and read all about darling babies and handsome families! I apologize in advance as this post is long in coming. It is currently 6:00 am on a Saturday morning and I am prepping to attend a funeral. I have been up since 5:00 am putting together a slide show of images to be played during the service.
I have had a hard spring and and even more difficult summer. This blog, and several other things in my
life have suffered as a result. I started the spring with the sudden hospitalization of both my grandparents, which eventually lead to my grandfather’s death. This was followed by a period of adjustment and grief for my family and ended this summer with the death of my grandmother, whose funeral I am preparing for this morning. It is a hard adjustment to loose both of them in a short period of time when they were bopping around together just a few short months ago. I shared a little bit about photographing them back in 2009 on my Facebook site recently. How precious those photographs are to me now. Hold on… getting up on my soap box for a minute. TAKE PHOTOS WITH PEOPLE YOU LOVE. They will be gone in an instant. Ok… getting back down now.
On top of all of that, we spent the summer working on our home of eight years, and then sold it and alot of what we own and recently moved into a tiny apartment in the Valley to begin house hunting again.
The summer wasn’t all work and sorrow, it did have many joys as well. My amazingly talented children are in a fiddle group called The Back Porch Fiddlers (see photo to the right) and they played at multiple venues this summer including the amazing Rockin’ B. Ranch (ok proud mom moment).
We took a breather from our hectic sell the house mode to rest on the Oregon Coast, which is Ah-Mazing! We generally try to visit the ocean as much as possible in the Tillamook area. The photograph is Oceanside,OR. We rested and ate lots of cheese! Life does march on and just a few days after coming home from the coast I helped plan and pull off a huge celebration for my dad’s 70th birthday. My husband also celebrated a milestone birthday this summer! In the middle of all of that was kids art and fiddle camp and a variety of boring responsible adulting.
Oh yes, I also photographed EVERYTHING…. including many events, personal projects, families, babies, seniors, etc which I will eventually post up on this blog as life settles down. So, when you look over my blog and see the HUGE gap in dates, you will know why. ♥
