Free Photo Consultation Giveaway!!

I stopped by I HEART FACES, and the featured photographer Natalie Norton is giving away a FREE Photo Consultation.  Can you believe it??  Stop by and take a peek at some picks from Natalie's portfolio, they are Beautiful!  I am am awe of her own beauty, and her words and advice about photography are inspiring and so on-point.

I would LOVE to win this giveaway!!  I desperately want to take photography to that next level for my family. So our little pumpkin and generations to come can treasure photos of our family and friends for years and years to come.  I'm sure my sis-in-law would love it if I quit bugging her to take our photos to, ha!

You can read more about the giveaway HERE!! on Natalie's blog.  I have read about Natalie and her family's story before, and I wept for them, and how thankful I was to have the blessings that we had.  I am just delving into her blog, and loving every minute of it.  She and her family have a beautiful story to tell of love, joy, life, happiness, incredible sadness and loss, and yes, moving forward.  Be prepared to cry, as well as laugh, smile, and feel inspired.

P.S. The contest ends Friday!!  If you mention you were referred by me and win, we both get consults. Yippeee!!

Top Two Tuesday!! Top Two Biggest Indulgences!!

Top Two Tuesday is hosted by Taylor at The Undomestic Momma!  You can see Tay's Top Two picks and many other Mommas and Ladies HERE!!!

Ok, so my Top Two Biggest Indulgences would probably be:


I love going on vacation. Big vacation, mini-vacation, weekend vacations, day vacations.  I call the hubs business trips that I attend vacation, and he keeps reminding me, that it is not vacation, ha!  The hubs and I have actually never been on a big vacation together outside of our honeymoon. We went on a two week road trip to AZ, where his family has a home. I wouldn't trade my honeymoon for anything, but I would still like to go somewhere tropical in our lifetime togther. I have been to Europe in highschool, Texas as an dult, and my mother took me to Washington DC, Virginia, Boston, Martha's Vineyard, and San Franciso, and lots of mini-vacations as a child, but I have never been anywhere like this. The hubs has been to Mexico and Hawaii several times growing up, but I have never been to a place like this, outside of Disneyworld and Destin, Florida as a child.  I am hoping the hubs and I can do this together while I can still pull off a bikini, ha!

2.Fancy Hotels

I'm with Tay on this one. My hubs, my family, my in-laws, my friends, basically anyone you meet that knows me knows that I am a giddy school girl when it comes to nice hotels.  In fact, I am basically in love with any decent hotel, because staying in a hotel means you're traveling, which means you're somewhere new/unfamiliar, which means you're doing something out of the ordinary, which means you are somewhere having fun, and not working, not cleaning, not doing laundry, not running errands, not rushing, or worrying, not doing any of those things, and.....you're probably relaxing, eating good food, and hopefully.....shopping. Eeeeeek!!! Yea!!  That old adage about loving all methods of transporation like, planes, trains, and automobiles rings true with me bc it means you're on your way towards someplace new, something unexplored, an adventure.

Umm....can I go on vaction now???
