It has been some time since I’ve posted, I know. I have taken many photographs in hopes to elaborate in words and it’s not as if there has been nothing so interested that I haven’t felt compelled to share,  just that I’ve been a bit pre-occupied with life. If you are interested in checking out the photographs most of them are uploaded to my Facebook page. Since my last post, I have experienced saying goodbye to my job, home and dear friends in Okinawa; visited with family in Sweet Home “Indiana” where I was introduced to three of our family’s newborn boys; reunited with my best friend I’ve had since I was 7 years old, Lara; temporarily lived in eleven different hotels and homes; experienced 8 different airports; driven over 4000 miles; successfully moved with a husband, three pets and over 5000 pounds of belongings from Japan to the panhandle of Florida; had my precious Doobie Boi go MIA for 12 days; watched Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doobie Brothers, Fuel, Pop Evil, Josh Turner, Long Reef, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Better Than Ezra, 311, 30 Seconds to Mars and Stone Temple Pilots in concert; submitted approximately 40 job applications; met with one of America’s top modeling scouts, Linda Bennett, who has provided me with modeling contract opportunities at Wilhelmina Models and Ford Models; ate at many new and wonderful restaurants; watched fireworks blast off a barge on the Boggy Bayou, as patriotic music blared from a boat on the 4th of July; spent a wonderful Labor Day weekend in New Orleans as the Southern Decadence Festival went on; celebrated my 25th Birthday; explored Panama City from the back of a Harley; watched the sunrise and sunset on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico; experienced wild dolphin sightings while boating with new friends; and have embraced a new military community. As you can read, I’ve been extremely pre-occupied! I hope to get back into keeping up with my blogging as it’s a creative outlet for me. Also, I have hopes to keep all of you, my friends and family, up to date on the many exciting life changes that will be happening in the near future. You will have to check back often or subscribe to see what exactly I mean!

Thanks for reading, I’ve missed this!

Preparing for PCS

Of course, we still have not received our flight tickets and have no idea what day we’ll actually be leaving Oki. I only know it will be sometime in-between March 29th and April 7th, and that time will fly so we’ve really got to get on the ball!

In attempt to help support our PCS move I will be doing a few select photography Mini-Sessions before we leave. I had started my own photography business two years ago and decided to quit once I started working full-time with Verizon. It’s been a year since I have done any paid portraiture photography and now that my work hours have been cut, I’m going to take advantage of the beautiful backdrops Okinawa has to offer. So if you or anyone you may know would be interested in doing a Mini-Session with me please send them my way!

29 Presents and 36 Cards... not including for each other or friends, family ONLY!

Seth and I both come from divorced families so we basically have more than a Brady Bunch family. We watched the movie “Four Christmases” the other day and it has got to be my favorite Christmas movie just because it hits so close to home. Living in Japan we have to get our Christmas shopping, wrapping and shipping done quickly so they can get to everyone in time. This year we bought our family all Christmas presents from our trip to Thailand in October so we had a nice head start. I didn’t realize how many gifts we had until I put them all in gift bags, 29 in all! These 29 gifts are not including any gifts for friends, co-workers or each other; these 29 gifts are for family alone! I had to line them up and take a picture because it was just amazing! I mailed them out last week so I hope you all get your presents on time and you enjoy them! We thought everyone needed something from Asia before we left here; that is, something purchased and made in Asia and not just “made in ___” Asia. LOL! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to our gigantic family!
