This morning I headed out to a local estate sale. I'm always torn about going to these because I get an overwhelming sadness walking around the houses and looking through items that belonged to someone who has just recently past. But these same feelings make me happy that I can bring something into my home that was once used and cherished by another family. Something that once meant something to them, always finds a place in my heart and home. Our house isn't very big, so I try to limit myself to collecting items that I will actually use. (This can be hard when I have to turn an eye to a box of vintage mason jars because guess what? I already have 100!)
Is anyone going to any good yard/garage/estate sales this weekend? Let you know what you find. This is what came home with me today. (If you follow my blog you know I like vintage and you know I love to bake.)
Have a great weekend everyone!
My daughter and I made some softball themed Cake Pops for her opening day today. These yummy little things are really time consuming to make. lol They came out a bit wonky but they tasted delish!
Who has tried their hand at making these? I'd love whatever tips you may have.
Recently I learned that one of my May grooms mother passed away. It was sudden and it's hard to fathom, since the last time I saw her she was so full of life and joy at her son's wedding. Hearing this heartbreaking news fills me with such sadness and even now as I write this I need to wipe the tears from my eyes.
News like this reminds me that what I do matters. I'm not just a wedding photographer, a Mitzvah photographer or a family photographer... I am a historian. I capture moments that generations will look at for many years to come. Rick and Whitney will be able to show their children a photo of their grandmother on their wedding day and they will get to know her through these images and the others they may have. Through all the memories and photographs, she will be remembered.
This is why I am a photographer.
Remembering 3,000 innocent lives, the amazingly brave 343 firefighters and 75 police officers and more then 4,600 servicemen and women who gave their lives for our country.
Many of you know that I am married to a firefighter. We are proud of him everyday but days like today remind me even more of the chances they take every single day and how heroic they all are...
