Michael & Lauren: Engagement

This is an extra special engagement session post, because it’s my little brother & his fiancee. Michael is four years younger than I am, and I can’t believe he’ll be getting married this year! I was always his 2nd mom growing up. Not that he wanted me to be, but I played that role well. […]

The Challenge of Being Content: Personal

I’m really bad about taking the time to blog about personal things. I mean, blogging is supposed to be a way to share your thoughts, and hopefully let people get to know you better. I usually get so wrapped up in trying to get everyone’s sessions or weddings posted, that I neglect to post other […]

Michelle - One of my favorite quotes is from a Beatles song: “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” It’s what I tell myself when I want to rush through the stage of 2am feedings, or all the carseats I have to buckle, or all the dirty fingerprints to clean off the table. Enjoy that baby kicking inside your belly; he will grow more quickly than you know. :)March 1, 2010 – 9:31 pm

Barbra-Sue Nelson - I am also a planner… so I get it…. but i do want to say… hang on to every moment…. they are quickly fleeting…. I know everyone says… it’s TRUE!February 19, 2010 – 11:29 pm

Audrey - Everything that you wrote sounds like it came straight out of my head! It’s so nice to hear that someone else is on the same page as me – and I’m glad my post inspired your post! Oh, and yes, we have 4 guitars, a keyboard and a bongo drum in our office. I totally feel your pain. :)February 10, 2010 – 2:06 pm

Steff - I like that you’re a planner. The great thing about being a planner is it typically makes you control freak. The great thing about being a control freak is you can control your thoughts and live for today! I love you. Great job showing those preggy hormones where they can shove it. lolFebruary 10, 2010 – 3:41 am

Caimbrin - I am proud of you!February 10, 2010 – 2:04 am

Lauren Kelly - Thank you for this Heidi. I’ll have to remember this when I turn 26 in June!!! Wonderful post! :)February 9, 2010 – 8:42 pm

Baby Talk: Personal

If you follow my blog, you know that Mike & I announced that we are expecting several weeks ago. Everyone who knows me knows that I’m not into surprises. I used to carefully unwrap my Christmas presents when my parents weren’t looking, because I just couldn’t take the suspense. Yep, I was that kid. So […]

Arrivederci: Personal

Faithful blog readers, I should be packing right now. But I’m blogging. And editing. And emailing. It’s tough to take a vacation when you own a business. (Or in the case of my husband and I, two businesses) But tomorrow we leave for our vacation/anniversary trip/babymoon, whatever you want to call it, we are out […]

So happy for you.October 26, 2009 – 2:44 pm
