Life As I Know it

Where have I been, I am sure is the question you want to ask me. I haven't updated my blog since around Christmas time and I have so much to update you all on. There is so many things that have changed in my life.

My sister and her husband have had there first child. My niece was born January 8th. She is such a beautiful soul. I love her so much. I have never felt the love I feel for her for anyone else, so I can only image how my sister feels.

It has been such a joy watching her grow and learn new things everyday. She is now 4 months old and so beautiful .

As far as me, I am now single again haha I feel like I am so enriched and blessed in so many areas in my life, but when it comes to love I have had no luck. I do have faith that God will give me the man of my dreams when the time is right and the stars align.

I have also been working hard on designing different jewelry pieces for my etsy shop. I am planning on opening another esty shop soon just for my photography. My photography blog I update at least once a month on my different projects I work on. I really love taking pictures and I am currently working on my portfolio which has been challenging and rewarding. If you have a chance visit my photography blog and let me know what you think.

I feel like everything is moving at lighting speed and I have been so busy with work that I needed to make some time to play !! In one week I am heading to Jamaica for vacation with my best friend and cousin !! It is going to be a fun girls trip for sure. I have a few photo shoots planned and the rest will be fun in the sun !!

I can't wait I have all of my sun dresses and cameras and all that is left to do is pack !!

That is most of the high lights in my life in the past 5 months. I have logged on and read a few blogs but I noticed some of my favorite blogs that I follow have stopped updating and it's sad because I really have enjoyed reading their blogs. I need to find some new blogs to follow and I also want to thank those that I do follow that still update. It's lots of working keeping up on blogging so hat's off to those that take the time to update us on there life !!

I Got To Go To....

A movie premiere called Sunday Morning Rapture !! My friend had a small role in the movie and played the role of a reporter !! She did an awesome job !! It was really nice to be able to experience going to this movie premiere. It was a religious movie and she told me a huge church directed the movie. When we got there I realized it was a church I used to go to so it was really neat to see my old pastor there.

My friend also got to walk the red carpet !

Her dress was so pretty !!

Papa Sheals is what everyone called my old Pastor

There is my friend on stage with all of the castmates at the after party

The food at the after party !

Me being silly !!

Photography is on my mind

I have so much to talk about and I think I will start with my photography.It has been my latest hobby as of the last few months !! It was a slow start and now I am doing photo shoots just about every weekend and I love it. I am no normal photographer. I enjoy doing what they call fantasy shoots aka themed shoots. It truly tells your version of the story. Here is a collection of some of the pictures from the shoots I have done over the past couple of months

These last two pictures I took with film

To check out more from each shoot follow me on my photography blog if you like to get lost in a dream world.

Vacation Pictures from Dominican Republic

Hello All,

I can not believe that 2 months have crept by !! Wow just a couple of months ago I was so excited about my vacation to Dominican Republic and promised you all pictures and when I got back I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to share my pictures with you or my funny !!

 We had so much fun and the resort was beautiful !! I am sure you saw in one of my previous post how many cameras I took and boy did I have fun taking pictures with all those different cameras.

When you arrive you get off the plane right on the landing strip and the airport is like a huge straw hut it's definitely not like the airports in the states.

We went on a couple of excursions while we were there. The first one was the sand buggies. We had no idea we would end up with mud all over us. It was so crazy you ride these things in the middle of the road and over in DR you can pass people in oncoming traffic and they drive so crazy it was scary but lots of fun. We drove them on the beach and then down dirt roads which led us to a cave. 

This is right before we walked down into the cave and jumped in cold water. The whole time we were walking down into the cave this dude was like you people are crazy they have snakes in the water that bite. I started to get nervous. But when it was my turn to jump I said screw it why not I am in DR in a cave let me do this. I did it and the water was so deep it took me which seemed like forever to get back up to the top and then I had to climb back up on a rope to get out. It was very adventurous.

The picture above of this pretty island we went on a party boat that took us to a couple of different islands and it was really neat.

We had such a nice time and the resort was so pretty and it was huge !!

I have so much to catch you all up on so I will be posting updates weekly.
