Aaralyn received her ribbon and certificate in the mail today for the National American Miss pageant! She will be competing in the pageant to become Miss Texas Princess and if she does win the title, she will get to compete in Nationals in California and she’ll get a day trip to DisneyLand which is something she is highly excited about!

I set up a Gofundme page for her since there is a sponsor fee of $550 to be in the actual pageant. If anyone would like to help, even if it’s $5, anything would be great! If any business chooses to donate, it is tax-deductible. Thank you! 🙂

Happy New Year!! X 2?!

Uhh wow. I can’t believe the last time I posted anything was 2 years ago. Not that I had much posted in the first place. I use to, I promise. I had a whole blog that was nearly a daily thing and I gave up on and deleted. I regret that I did that now because it was actually doing really well but one person’s comment sent me over the edge and I just told myself I was done. Thinking back now, I don’t understand why I let one person ruin something for me. Blogging was my escape but removing myself from what I thought was a problem was always the answer. I feel like I’ve grown a bit since then and I’m able to stand my ground a bit more and defend myself. At least I hope I have!! Lol. Anyway, wow 2 years. Sooo I’ve had my second child since then. A little boy who is now 10 months old, walking and just had his first haircut today!! I feel like this time around, going from birth to a year old has flown by. With my daughter, not so much. I assume it was because I was a stay at home mom and I had nothing else to make the time go faster. I’m working now and have been for the past 2 years. I do miss being able to spend as much time with my son as I did my daughter but in all honesty I would probably lose my mind staying home all the time. Boys are so mischievous! I cannot get over how different they are. Absolutely amazes me!

Anyways, when I recreated this blog, it was designed specifically for my “artwork” and I’ve since gone on yet another years long hiatus with no thoughts of going back to it yet again. I’ve lost my time and passion for it. I honestly would love to get into photography more and capture real life’s beauty.

By the way, it took me literally about half the day and probably about 100 pictures to get these 3 decent pictures of his haircut. Getting good pictures of him is nearly impossible!
