I am currently planning my sisters wedding and reminiscing about mine.  

can I make a living as a photographer… probably not. Would I like too? YES! Well… that’s the dream. 

Hemp-tastic!

Hemp-tastic!

I try to make plans for the future but never seem to get it right…

I guess that’s the beauty of it.

Well, here is to whatever the future may bring!

Dear Universe,

Life would be much simpler without rude, condescending, and hateful people. Please do something about this.  Do it for us simple minded people. That believe in peace rather than hatred. That want to go on with our lives in serenity and not have negativity cloud our thoughts. I’m sure universe, you can agree. Your promptness is much appreciated. Thank you.

Here is to a peaceful day…………….

Life is Short

Here one second and gone the next. Literally a blink of an eye. I find myself sitting here thinking of country songs and realizing (as corny as it sounds) that we really do need to live like we are dying. We are asked that if we died tomorrow would we die happy? Really and honestly happy! Would I be content with my life up to this moment. The answer is surely NO. Yes I have a husband and family that I love more than words can even describe but there is so much left unanswered. So much on the back burner, so much “yeah I’ll get to it eventually,” So much I wish I could do. Why is life so complicated? The only thing that should matter is this… Love, Family, Passion, Happiness. If life was measured by how much we loved instead of how much money we make. This world would be different. I am wealthy in LOVE.

I know those realist out there are saying.. well what about money, bills, house, car payments? Yeah I think about those things too but these things truly don’t make me happy. Do they truly make you happy?? There is so much shit out there that I spend my money, some are obligations and some are social expectations. I am changing this. No longer will I be expected to pay money for things that don’t truly make me happy. I will not work just to make money. I will work to make a difference. I will do something I love. And in turn I will be rich with LOVE.

Life is short. Live like its your last day. Be the person you have always seen yourself as. Live your dream.

So, where did this outburst come from? I have a family member that is really sick and has been for the past couple months. After multiple amounts of testing and all of them coming up inconclusive we still have no answers. Some serious things are being considered now. Some things I don’t even want to mention. This is a sudden illness with no rhyme or reason to its existence. This can happen to any of us. Really anyone. Life is precious and with this experience in my life its that much more precious. I want to love with all my heart, with no regrets for the rest of this lifetime.
