Getting Back to Life

It's been a long time since I've been to my blog. As most of you know my husband passed away suddenly in May and I've been kind of in a tail spin for the last couple of months. There are so many things to take care of and I'm still not done with everything.

I want to thank all of the incredible people at Jessica Sprague who made cards for myself and my girls. They were so thoughtful and meant so much to us.

So now I'm on to getting back to life. So I thought I'd start out slow. (Turtle speed actually) I started by just cruising the galleries and message boards at JS. Then gradually started posting on the message board. One of my good friends at JS decided I needed to take the Oh Shoot! photography class with Candice Stringham at JS as a kick in the pants to really get me started. I enjoyed the class, the videos that Candice did were outstanding. I'd like to say I finished all the projects, but I didn't. Not because they were too hard, but I got side tracked. It's been over 100 degrees for weeks now and it's just too hot to go out and take pictures. I have my camera on the tripod and I just can't lug it around myself with the dogs. I'd hate to drop it! So I've just put it off and I'll finish the class in my own time. That's one of the best things about the classes at JS, the class materials are there forever and you can finish when you are ready.

Krystin is going to nursing school and doing great. She had a week off between semesters so the two of us headed to Disneyland for a couple of days. So I've done some scraping and put together a page of the photos we took there. This seemed to be just what I needed to get me scraping again.

So here are some of the pages I've done lately. Thanks for looking.
