This journey essentially started 15 years ago when I met my husband and we began dating. Dating turned into an engagement, marriage, a honeymoon and a couple beautiful babies. I had been an avid scrapbooker for years. I have these beautiful paper craft scrapbooks of our wedding, our honeymoon and both of our kids as well as a few others. I love to capture memories and look back on the journey of life and while I was very into creating these stunningly crafted books, I also was limited on time, money and space to keep all the items needed to create these.
|Terrible picture of my scrapbook creation.|
I had been following around on a friends new journey of blogging and sharing her stories as they began to build their family and decided that I would give blogging a try. It was cheaper, I could keep all the info about my growing family in one space and share it with all our friends and family so much easier than inviting everyone over to look at scrapbooks of our life. So I jumped right in. In the early days I shared snapshots of our family, our kids, their milestones and just life in general. Eventually I started to share recipes and crafts and other things that I have always been interested in.
|Getting better at photography!|
I have taken my passion and worked not only on my photography but have been trying to move into making more videos of my work. It is always a work in progress and maybe 5 years from now, I will look back on this aspect of my journey and cringe, but right now I am so proud of the work that I am doing and how much I am learning. This is my latest video. You would not think that a 24 second video would take so much work, but I will tell you that it was a journey in of itself.
