Motivational Monday 1st Post :)

I'm starting something new & I hope you'll follow along. I LOVE LOVE LOVE inspiring, motivational, touching quotes and stories and will be sharing some of my favorites with you every Monday morning, so please be sure to check in often and follow along every Monday morning. Who said Monday's can't be fun?!?!?!!!

Right before my Mom passed away she told me about a book of inspiring quotes and poems she had been writing in since 1986. She went on to tell me that it was almost complete and she wanted me to have it once she had finished it. Unfortunately, she didn't have the chance to complete it, but thanks to my Dad, I have now completed it for her. The book I received (with her very own handwriting) is my MOST TREASURED gift of her (well, aside from her abounding LOVE and HUGE heart). It warms my heart and also brings me to tears when I read it, but it also helps me keep that close connection to her and know that her spirit shines within me. My Mom and I were SO close and it's amazing to me that I never knew she wrote in such a journal, nor shared the same passion for inspiring words and inspiring quotes. Thanks to my Mom, it's now something she's inspired me to physically write (you know pen & paper~*wink wink*) in daily for my own kids one day.

Anyway, that's the background behind my motivation for doing this every Monday. Without further ado, here's my 1st Motivational Monday quote:

"Every second that you live you are never going to get back. You are never going to get to change what you said, didn't say, did, or didn't do. Live how you want to live. Act how you want to be remembered, because you never know how long or short you are going to be here." ~Emily Doberstein~

Have a very blessed day everyone and be sure to make the most of every moment. Tomorrow may be too late!

Gorgeous Brothers :)

These are two of my favorite little boys to photograph. Not only are they GORGEOUS, they are the most well mannered kids I have ever been around. The "please, thank you's & yes, SURE" just melt my heart & blow me away. From such young ages, they already know & follow the simple things in life. The simple things that really go a long way with people. Mr. & Mrs. "H", you are doing an AMAZING job raising such wonderful gentlemen & I'm so very honored that you have entrusted me once again with these precious memories. Thanks boys for the laughs & good times. You two are "Crazy"......or wait, that's what you called me :) *wink wink*

Amazing *Love*

This young man was hilarious & I had the BEST time photographing him. I told his Mom that I seriously need to hire him as my assistant. He is PRICELESS!!! I got the biggest kick out of *attempting* to pose him a certain way & he'd say "how about this" & it was 100 times better than anything I could have come up with. He's a true natural & was an absolute JOY to photograph. I will definitely be borrowing him for some modeling down the road. This handsome kiddo will move mountains someday :)
