Once a Mom, Always a Mom!
Published on Sunday, April 17, 2016 by Katherine
This weekend I was honored to be the guest of my new dear friend Amy Roberts once again. Amy took my daughter and me to The Maymont in Richmond. I don’t believe I have ever visited such a dynamic and unique park!
I have some amazing photos I will be sharing over the next post or two. Bu...

This month's photo challenge subject is three. There is so much open interpretation to "three." I can't wait to see what everyone came up with!
My old neighbor began brewing beer shortly before he moved to California. When he found out his friend was driving to Virginia he sent thre...
It Was Only A Matter Of Time
Published on Sunday, March 20, 2016 by Katherine
I knew it would happen. During what my son calls his “heart shenanigans” I had to stay too strong to allow myself anything but a few tears. When I am on Mom duty I am rock solid, saving the melting down for later. It was only a matter of time.
It happened in a hospital where I came fa...
Hampton Roads Tattoo Arts Festival
Published on Monday, March 7, 2016 by Katherine
Last week I asked my daughter if she wanted to go to the Hampton Roads Tattoo Arts Festival. I had never been but heard good things about it. I am not one to go to public events, but a tattoo show? At least it wouldn’t be boring!
My daughter was messaging a friend the morning we were go...

I didn't take a single picture for this month's photo challenge until this past weekend. Why? Because the theme was so hard....
When the idea finally hit me, all my pictures fell in to place. With the help of some extraordinary girls, that is.
I took my first picture on the ...
It Was a Very Good Week

“But is an anomalous right coronary artery hereditary?” “Could my other children have an anomalous RCA?” “What do you know about anomalous right coronary arteries running in the family?”
I was beginning to sound like a broken record. Yet no one had an answer for me. Between ...
Photo Challenge: Inside!
Published on Sunday, January 31, 2016 by Katherine
This photo challenge "Inside" was one of my first steps at living a "real life" again after our horrible December. I was happy to take out my camera once more and look forward to seeing what everyone else has posted!
Today my daughter and I took her friend on a hiking adventure. I bro...
Our Weeping Pyro Pet
Published on Sunday, January 24, 2016 by Katherine
My daughter had a few friends she wanted to send presents to this Christmas. I told her to pick some things out and put them in my Amazon cart. When I looked at what she chose I was intrigued.
“Honey, where did you find such a neat thing?”
She had picked out candles called “Pyro Pe...
What’s On Your Cell Phone?
Published on Sunday, January 17, 2016 by Katherine
I'm still at a point where writing just won't work for me yet. My brain is trying to catch up with the real world world since my son's surgery. In trying to decide on a post, I scrolled through my cell phone pictures for ideas. "What have I been up to? What can I write about?" We...
We Will Move Forward

This is a screen shot of a picture I shared on Facebook today. I don't think I have ever seen a picture that hit home so profoundly. Above the picture I wrote, "When David was at his worst and I didn't know if he was going to make it, I held on to his hand with everything I had. If I...
Before… and After
Published on Thursday, December 17, 2015 by Katherine
I need to make this post brief. If I begin writing all the details of my last two weeks I believe my eventual meltdown will quickly ensue. And it isn’t quite time for that.
On December 5 at 4:00 a.m. I was woken up in Corolla by a police officer knocking at my door. My 22-year-old hea...

This month's photo challenge theme is "Morning."
When we are in Corolla, my dog wakes me early to go outside. Off season I am often the only one on the beach as far as the eye can see. Mornings on the beach are my peace and my church.
All of my photos for this month were taken on my ...
