Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

preserving memories

I am so fortunate to have been able to spend an entire weekend doing something that I love - scrapbooking. I was able to get away and concentrate on preserving the memories of my family's life. I love recording the details of our who/what/where/when/why-i-adore-these-moments. It is re-engerizing, centering, and quite therapeutic for me.

Best of all, my children LOVE the pages I create. :)

Here is a sampling of what I created (it was quite a productive weekend - in addition to spending time with friends, I preserved over 25 memories/scrapbook pages!).
