a FEW wedding pictures!!!!

I don't have a ton of time to write but I wanted to get some wedding pictures on the blog finally! :) I'm waiting to have the ones of Aaron and I done (edited I mean) but heres just some that I've done. It's been quite the process, it's one thing editing photos for someones wedding that I've shot, but when it's your own it's like you want to save and treasure every photo, which can get exhausting when editing them! :) All I have left are the reception photos though and then I'll be done. I just HAD to get the others done because I have lovely HUGE frames to put all these in and put on the wall...its like a collage frame, so neat! :)
(They are in no specific order...I'm just in a hurry!)

Oh, and the trailer for our Wedding Video will be online soon, so I'll post a link soon, it's SOO good! :) Love it!

It's late

....And I'm REALLY missing my Mom. :( This whole day has been kind of ummm bad for me! My fault though, I've just been very short with everyone and rather rude to those I love most. :( Tonight we went to a Relay For Life benefit thing and we were just part of the volleyball tournament...anyway, as I walked around the track and read all the names of local people who have died from cancer, I just couldn't get my Mom off my mind. :( Then on the way home I heard a song that my friend Mandy sang that was written for my Mom, and then after that another song that was at my Mom's funeral.'s just been rough. I miss her SOO much! ;( As the wedding is getting closer and closer (3 weeks away) I'm wanting her here even more. With all this wedding planning it's like this HUGE part of my life is missing and it shows in all I do I feel like. How I would have loved to plan this wedding with her help, and have her there at the shower on Sunday, and her there to be escorted down the aisle at the wedding and to witness me marrying the love of my life, Aaron.

All the wishing in the world won't change that though. So I better just pray and let God fill that missing part...I'm trying, really I am, just seems about impossible. Still everytime I miss her like hurts so bad, like someone is stabbing me. Emotional pain is worse than physical I think....

Please just pray for me...and for Aaron and me as we seek to keep the Lord first in everything, but as the wedding draws near, small details seem to get in the way and distract my focus.

Thanks!! Goodnight!

I've got news......

I am engaged to the most WONDERFUL man on earth! I've been keeping things pretty quiet for awhile now, dropping just subtle hints here and there, but now I can tell the world! :) I guess I'm a little late though, seeing as though Mrs. Morris already did a post here and I haven't even blogged yet! :)

On Mother's Day, Aaron got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife! It was perfect! I was SOOO shocked..didn't expect it at all on that day, but it was the perfect day. So special to me! I'll just post a few pictures and then hopefully soon I'll write out the whole story for those of you who don't know everything! :)

Praise God for His many blessings!!!

An Update

Well, I was going through my comment moderation and saw Mrs. B's comment and thought I should do a blog post to answer her question. :) So, Mrs. B, THIS post is for YOU! ;)
Well, currently I am in Missouri and spending time with my sisters! My time with them has been really good. On Tuesday, I had the privildige to go to the Cardinals game with both of them! Can you believe it, it was our first game ever for us three to be at together! Best thing about the game was...THEY WON! GO CARDS!!!! :) We had perfect seats..Mandy got them through her work for her birthday, so we were in box seats and SOO close to the field!Thanks so much Mandy! Only bad part about the game....I was missing a certain someone a LOT...Next time!
Then yesterday Tara, Jason, Mandy, Joel and I all went to some sand volleyball court to play! At first the bugs were horrible so it wasn't as much fun as it could be, but once it got dark the lights turned on and that attracted the bugs to the light! :) We were the only ones there so that was cool!

During the days I've really just been relaxing I guess. :) Cleaned some at Taras today, but other than that I've really just been praying and reading God's Word, seeking His direction and praying for wisdom. I've been encouraged by a lot of scriptures this week also! I'll share some with you guys! :)

Proverbs 2:2-6 "Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; If you see her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will discern the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding."

James 1:5 "But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him."

James 3:13-18 "Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace."

then just two more..... James 1:2-4 "Consider it all JOY, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

James 1:12 "BLESSED is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him"

THAT is encouraging!! We all go through things, big or small, God is in control and as hard as it may be we need to take joy in it. I guess when I think of that first verse I relate it to running...lately I've been running and it's hard to have a lot of endurance. You want to start out fast and then it's hard to go very far because you become weary...but with trials in our lives, God is using that to produce endurance in keep us going! It's weird to think like that but the more we are going through, the more our faith is tested, in the long run we will have an endurance like no other and will be able to withstand anything...things we think now that there is NO WAY we could go through that, but one day, with God preparing us... "getting us in shape" we can! :) Hope that makes some sense! :) moving on! :) Tomorrow I plan to spend the day with my Dad, which will be nice. It's been a LONG time since I've really got to just spend the day with him. I'm looking forward to it! Hmm...what else! Well Mrs. B, I know your probably wondering about OTHER news but...for now I'm keeping quiet! ;) Hopefully SOON, I can share something with you all! :) And post LOTS of pictures! I've got plenty, that's for sure! :)

Well I guess that is all for now. Unfortunately I can't edit pictures here or downsize pictures, so it's hard to post too many on here. Sometime I'll have to blog about our big dance we did, it was GREAT!

It's hard to believe that my "LITTLE" sister is 20 years old today! :) Time is just flying by, and especially because we don't see eachother every day anymore. As sad as it seems, it took getting away for awhile to really fully appreciate the bond my sister and I had. We were so close! Did just about everything together and she was my best friend! I'm so thankful to have Mandy as my sister!

I hope you have a WONDERFUL birthday Mandy! I miss you a lot and can't wait to see you next month!

As you can see BOTH of my sisters can act QUITE crazy...I'm just glad her face didn't get stuck this way! ;) Mandy, I'm afraid Joel might be having second thoughts if so.... ;) Love you being this wild though! :D Your so much fun!

(Mandy and her boyfriend, Joel, they've been dating over 6 months now, he's great for her!)

Spring is about Here!

Today was a beautiful day! :) At least to me it was...I guess it's been kind of on the verge of rain but it hasn't so that alone makes it beautiful, right?! :) (Ok, so your seeing I REALLY don't like rain!) ;) I ended up going outside earlier today and playing around with the boys. They were having bike races and so I ran in to get my camera to catch some of the action. :) Some of the older boys were busy cleaning up Jordan's mowers and getting him ready for his mowing season. So I bounced back and forth between everyone. :) Then, Kaleb, Isaac and I played BASEBALL! :) It was fun! Isaac and Kaleb are quite the hitters! I had to run out of the way real quick though after I pitched because they liked to line drive it RIGHT at me! :( Well, just wanted to post some of the pics from our day! :)
Goin' Country! :)

The Boys!

He got some air!! :) Pretty exciting!
NO SNOW!!! :) YAY!

Life is Good! :)

Well I know it must seem like I've completely forsaken this blog, but I haven't! :) We don't have internet in our home any longer so I don't get to the library THAT often and I especially don't blog everytime I come.

Life has been wonderful and I've been feeling incredibly blessed! :) I had the opportunity to shoot at a friends wedding last weekend in Missouri which was nice and some friends of mine from up here went with me, Danyelle and Andy. Danyelle is also a photographer so she helped me out a lot! :) Thanks!! :) If you'd like to see some wedding shots click HERE! :)

It's getting warmer here and I'm loving that also! I really REALLY enjoyed this winter and loved learning to ski, but now that the snow is gone I'm just ready for summer to get here! I'm not a fan of all the wetness we've been having but hopefully it will dry up quick and warm weather will be here to stay! :)

Here's just a few pics from what I've been up to! ;)
