Theme: From Your Phone
About: I really do not use my camera phone much but I have this strange habit of taking random pictures of myself in the car, so I have included one of those images. The other image is of a pile of leaves in my yard. This is my favorite time of year and I love seeing the leaves change and fall to the ground. The image with the leaves was processed with Tara Staton’s action, “Intensity” in her Quintessentials collection. It is the best action for popping color in landscape and foliage!

About: It’s kind of unbelievable how much things change once you are a parent. And I don’t just mean less sleep, messier house no alone time. Random changes that you didn’t even see coming. When I was growing up my nana used to give my brothers and I a new Christmas ornament every year. There was some local shop that had these little clay precious moment looking ornaments and she loved them. It’d be October and we’d get the new ornament in the mail. And I’m not gonna lie I thought they were awful. I groaned every time I got them. Why would I want an ornament? With the year on it? Who cares?
Cut to 20 something years later, married for 4 years, two puppies one baby and I find myself super eager to get a Christmas ornament each year that represents our family. I don’t just mean eager, I mean like CRAZY EXCITED. I get about 20 catalogs in the mail every day and I honestly do try to skim all of them. Each one I open I look right to the ornaments. Dude, who am I? Christmas ornaments?! Apparentely it’s what flips my skirt so I’m gonna stop fighting it and give in. A new tradition has been born – the Christmas ornament. Each year I’m going to wait for that special moment in time that an ornament finds a way into my heart and snatch that beast up for our tree.
