Yes, we are waiting on results for a few recent heart tests. Yes, he has a zipper scar down his chest. But this summer my son was finally able to do something I thought he may never do again.
Standing on the beach taking pictures, it unexpectedly hit me. Hard. And I started to openly we...
Deva Cut, Take Three
Published on Thursday, June 23, 2016 by Katherine
You may recall my first Devacurl Deva Cut. What a horrible flop. Since then I changed to the head (and more expensive) (and more experienced) stylist. Things have worked out better since then.
Ever since my son's month in the hospital, or his "heart shenanigans" as he calls it, my h...
Returning to 8 Seaview Avenue
Published on Thursday, June 9, 2016 by Katherine
When I was in third grade we were stationed in Newport, Rhode Island for a year while my father attended the war college. It was the first year I was able to really explore. At that age I was able to stretch my wings just a bit and fly.
Because of this freedom I have more memories of ...

This month's photo challenge subject is Outside the Box. I love that you can interpret this in so many ways. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's photos!
This is basically my third son, Manny. He and Jessica have been together for as long as I can remember. Manny is defi...
The Money Shot
Published on Monday, May 23, 2016 by Katherine
How many times have you seen a picture that stopped you in your tracks? One that was perfectly timed, capturing a moment that is not often seen, much less caught in a photograph? I think every photographer dreams of that single once in a lifetime shot.
This weekend I had my chance.
Friday the 13th Tattoos
Published on Thursday, May 19, 2016 by Katherine
Friday the 13th was always my lucky day. When others were dreading its arrival, I was anticipating a good day ahead. Even my first born made his appearance on Friday the 13th during a full moon and a meteor shower. This may help to explain why getting a Friday the 13th tattoo was o...

I haven't been able to post anything for a few weeks because of blog troubles. Now that everything is ironed out, I am going to go ahead and put up my April Photo Challenge shots. The theme was Vibrant. I am so glad I am able to post again!
I laughingly call this "Self Portr...
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 ...
