Emily's First Birthday

 

What a great weekend!  I am a little sad that it is Sunday night already, but I have to say that I really loved this weekend.  Nothing major happened, but I was able to get a bunch of stuff in order, work on my taxes, and have an early birthday dinner with my family.  My dad takes off to Florida tomorrow for the rest of the winter, so we have my birthday dinner before he goes each year.  I also got totally inspired by two blogs I came across, and I won't share specifics just yet, but I'm hoping their inspiration leads me to follow my heart a little more in 2012, and make this the best year ever.

 

I also got a chance to get back to work in photography.  I haven't shot anything since November, and while I won't lie and say that I've hated the downtime, I will say it was good to pick the camera up again and hear that shutter snap.  I love that sound!  I photographed Emily Jane, who turned one on December 30th, and her and her parents were just super sweet and welcoming to me.  I've still been playing around with making slideshows, so here is the one I made for them.  I don't know if I'll keep this current slideshow service or try to find a new one, but let me know what you think.  Hope everyone has a great week!
