I am always up for a new adventure!
Be sure to take a look at her video too : )
It is amazing how time flies and how that time changes things. My Daughter Courtney ( with my son Reagan in tow ) left for China last Monday. Reagan will be there for 3 months but Courtney will be there indefinitely and it will be at least 2 years before she comes home. Taylor my other son will be moving to Lawrence in August. I have wanted to spend every extra moment that I could with Courtney and the boys knowing that soon We would not have that opportunity like I would like. I chose to cut things out in my day that I would normally do and even Needed to do ( like blogging : ) and FB ) because the fleeting time with my kids is so important to me.
So please forgive the lack of Blogging and yes I am still in business and busier than ever : )
Behind the scenes: We have been working on a new website – A big project that I am excited about. Like all big projects it is taking much longer than I would like. A few months ago I taught my first photography class to photographers – Very fun! I am also working on a book : ) more about that later!
