If we sat down for coffee

Hello loves,

How are you?

How has your week  been?

Let’s grab a cup of coffee and catch up.

If we sat down for coffee I would tell you about my new camera lens I got for Christmas.

It’s a 50mm lens and even tho I’m so excited to have it, I’m totally intimidated by it. I know, it sounds so funny to be intimidated by a lens, but I am. I can already telly he difference between my old lens and this new one. All I want to do is take pictures of everything.

Isn’t she a beauty? Do you have any tips for taking amazing pictures with this bad boy?

I would tell you that I’m really hoping it’s going to take the pictures on my blog to a whole new level. EEK! So exciting!

I would tell you how much I love Christmas time because every one sends us holiday cards with photos and I love, love, love getting cards in the mail. After the holiday season one of my very favorite things to do is trim them down and put them up on a photo board in our kitchen. I can’t stand throwing them away so they stay up all year round. It makes me feel close to my friends. It reminds me to pray for them, to call and ask how they are doing.

I would tell you that my photo board was my hubby’s idea. He doesn’t like pictures on the fridge because they fall off and this was a great way for us to display invitations and pictures throughout the year. Doesn’t it look amazing?! And can I just tell you how much I just love seeing pictures of my blogging friends up there too?! It seriously warms my heart.

I would also tell you that this happened this week.

Yup our little man transitioned from a crib to a big boy bed.

And he did so great. No tears, no getting up a million times.

He is so excited about his new bed we find him wanting to lay in it and read during the day as well.

How cute is that?

And I would tell you that I’ve been journaling lots of hopes and dreams for this little blog in 2012.

I have so many things I want to write about. Experiences I want to open up about and share.

If I could think of one word that I hope defines the core of my blog this year it would be:


To always be open an honest, to write whats on my heart, to continue to document the past and present journeys of our lives, and to be who I am, with no compromise.

But mostly I just want to hear from you this week?

How are you?

How was your Christmas?

Do you have any amazing plans for New Years Eve?

I love you and I’m so grateful for our coffee dates.

See you next week.
