Today as I was driving home my mind started wandering and as usual I starter thinking about mom and how very much I miss her. Then I got to thinking of how thankful I was to have so many great pictures of my mom. My sisters take pictures but like most people they only pull out the camera for Birthdays or Holidays. I never seem to put mine away. I actually have more everyday life pictures than I do Holiday pictures. To me it is very important to catch those simple moments and have them to look back on because as time passes those little memories seem to get lost.
My family gets tired of mom pulling out the camera but when they are older they will be thankful that I have so many memories saved in my pictures. They will be able to look back at these pictures with their children and tell the stories that would have been lost.
Because I am such a picture taker I have so many great pictures and I wanted to share a couple of my very favorites with ya'll today. The first one is of my puppy baby CoCo, it was just by chance that I took this picture and it is one of the funniest ones I have.

What a horrible stormy day we had yesterday. There were Tornado warnings everywhere but thank god no touch downs! When I went to pick up Will from school it was raining hard with wind gusts at 55 mph. We were both soaked by the time we made it to the car. I love a good clean rain just as much as everyone else but winds that take the shutters off my house I can do without. Today though the storm clouds are moving out and the sun is starting to peek out so it seems the bad weather is over for now.

Its been so long since I have blogged. I have thought about it almost everyday but there always seemed to be something else needing done or someone else on the computer. I am sure you all know that feeling. So today I decided I would take at least 10 minutes a day to blog. I think I deserve that much. I also think I was not blogging much because since my mom passed away I just had no desire to create, and for me blogging and creating kinda go hand in hand. Well I am happy to say that I am once again creating! I have learned that scrapbooking can be very therapeutic and healing. I have been playing more on my layouts and trying different things. Getting a little more dirtier, if that was even possible. Here are a couple of my layouts that I have made in the last few weeks.

About 2 weeks ago I went to post on my blog and got this big Error that said my blog had been deleted! Oh Yeah....I was highly upset! I have been trying to get it back ever since and have finally decided that I would start a new one...Yes, I know that's years worth of my blogging life gone but everyone says a fresh start is good for the soul, I guess I am going to find that out first hand. So please excuse the mess as I get my blog back to being my blog!
