Meringue Kisses {Foodie Friday}

Have you ever had Meringue cookies? I see them in blogland all the time, but I had not tried any until I made these for Caroline's birthday party.

S'more cups {Foodie Friday}

Gosh these treats are so cute I can hardly stand it! I was so nervous to make them, because I didn't think that they would turn out as well as all the pictures I saw.

Snow day {my photography}

Unless you have been living under a rock it's likely that most of your news lately has been about the Polar Vortex and the snowpocalypse. After getting 6 inches of snow last Wednesday, we got another FOOT on Sunday. Needless to say most of the state of Indiana was shut down for the better part of Sunday and Monday. When the snow started falling the temperatures were pretty tolerable so Caroline and I went out to enjoy it. Caroline always wants to go out and play in the snow, and we knew the temperatures the following couple of days were not going to allow us to be outdoors. We were only out for a little while, but Caroline has so much fun!

Happy Birthday, Caroline!

It hardly seems possible that my baby girl is 4 years old. It seems like just yesterday she was a soft, squishy baby in my arms. 

Now she is such a big girl!

14 things 'to-do' in 2014

As I stated previously, I generally just make a ‘to-do’ list of things I want to accomplish during the year. I generally make them to be more than I can actually accomplish. Most of the items on the list generally have to do with preserving memories-or making photo books. I have managed to stay up to date since Caroline has been born, but I am still trying to catch up on the past. It's a time consuming task that can start to pile up on you if you don't keep moving! However, I have finally figured out a system. In my next post I will tell you how I will accomplish some of these!

2013 in review

Well 2014 has snuck up on us (don’t all years). It is amazing to me how so often it seems like the days and weeks go by so slowly, but the years go by so fast! I cannot believe that Caroline will be 4 on Wednesday! Seriously, it boggles my mind. Anyway, I don’t make resolutions (most of the time). I tend to compile more of a ‘to-do’ list of sorts. There are certain things that I wish to accomplish each year and other projects that I try to ‘catch up’ on or things I wish to do around the house. Before posting the 2014 ‘to-do’ list, I like to look back and see how 2013 went. I try to review the list at least once during the year (probably why it doesn’t ever get done!) I should put it on my calendar to review monthly (ya think)

Holiday Bark {Foodie Friday}

I don't know about you, but there always seems to be a lot more candy around the house around Christmas than there is at Halloween. In any case, there is more than enough to do around. Making this holiday bark is a great way to use up all those extras lying around and turn them into a treat that everyone is sure to enjoy.

Gerrit's Impromptu Senior Session {my photography}

Sometimes photo shoots just happen. You don't have time to prepare or charge your batteries, you just go! This is what happened with my brother. "hey sis, can you take some pictures for me?" Of course, let's go!
