I'm a free-spirited photographer, soon-to-be yoga teacher, gold medal aunt, aromatherapy lover, and grand adventurer who loves nothing more than warm evenings on the porch with her husband, dogs, cats and a good bourbon.
“You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.”
― Eckhart Tolle
Bronx is my photo of the day. I drove over to watch him and big bro Seth do some sledding because I don't have any winter pictures of him. And you are only a baby once right? This is one of my favorite shots. Those little hands on his hips, so big for an eighteen month old baby. His gloves were because he was learning how to throw snowballs and he couldn't make them with his Superman gloves on. He has quite an arm.
At our home early this morning Earl and Eudora had their own portrait session. Just like the old days. Lots of nose plowing going on. And tag. They love tag in the snow.
This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays. ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Okay. So we are back from a trip to the Bahamas. Our wedding spot. Doing a little bonefishing, some gambling, some sunning, lots of eating...some pina colodas or goombay smashes... it was very, very, very nice. And though really happy to be home I miss the heat.
The first night Martin climbed in bed early. Tired from the flight, and early morning, and sitting in the sun. I went to bed around 11pm. There was a large white tent party on the grounds and I had been enjoying their music and laughter. In bed trying to fall asleep suddenly it sounds like Junkanoo is coming by my room. It is so loud that I cannot imagine how Martin is sleeping. I run to the door and a mini Junkanoo looking group is heading my way. I really want to get down to make photos of their exotic costumes but I am already in my pjs. I have the camera but not my glasses so I am doing my best to do some settings that would work in the night. Really hard without your glasses and in a hurry. By the time they passed me up on the balcony I did get a few clear shots. What I wouldn't give to have been down in front of them or in the midst of it snapping away!
Toonces never woke up.
Thank goodness I didn't let the door shut with me in my pajamas and no key.
It was the beginning of a very festive vacation.

Back to today. Back to reality. And it hardly seems fair Maggie takes that big old bed and leaves Eudora on the rug. ( I don't actually let the cats take the dog beds ).
