Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog- a place where I share a bit of my photography, a bit of my life, and a lot of me! I am in love with the life that God has provided me. I live with my wonderful husband in central Oklahoma, in the town of Edmond. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I enjoy my work as a nurse and photographer. I adore sweets, nature, and my pesky (but cute) boxer, Honey. I feel that I am blessed with a passion for photography, and pray that I am able to bless others through it.

Thank you for being here and sharing the experience with me!

The "I could/should be" feeling

I sit here writing this post during my second day of having no pictures to edit!
Sorry, if your not a photographer you probably don't understand the thrill.
I can relate it to nursing school though. I remember when I first got out of school, and for the first time in 2 years enjoyed the feeling of not having something I could do each moment. During nursing school, there was always a chapter to read, a case to study, a med to memorize. Now of course this wasn't all that I did, but there was always that feeling that 'I could/should be studying'. Once I graduated and started working my big girl job, I could get off of work and be done with it! Nothing else to do (except cook, clean, laundry...). But there was no "i could/should this..". I reveled in it.
Then I got bored, and picked up a camera.
Now I can't remember the last time I didn't have pictures that "I could/should edit" (actually, now that I think about it, it might of been around Ray's birthday in the beginning of July because I think that's the last time my house was clean). But now, I have a clean house, mopped floors and all, and I even brought my camera tonight to take some pictures just for fun! I used to tote this thing around everywhere I went, then the more sessions I shot, the less life events I captured. So here's to tonight, and edit-free pics :c)

Ray was asked to play with his work's indoor soccer team tonight.
I've decided that we will start sprint training, because we're starting to play soccer like we're old.
These bring tears to my eyes.
Not literally, but I really did feel sad looking at my soccer cleats when my roommate borrowed them the other day. Never play soccer with out cleats, they are as necessary as a seat belt in a car.
Otherwise you end up in one of these, stuck on the bleachers, taking pictures of shoes...

I do get lunch out of the deal. Matt is taking me out to lunch tomorrow to make up for breaking my toe. Not sure if we're quite even, but it's close. I also get my foot re-xrayed tomorrow. This will determine if my toe needs an intervention (we pray not!).
p.s. I haven't mentioned it here, but due to the above issue, I will not be able to run my first half marathon in November. hmmm.. I'm starting to wonder if this was all a plan of my sister's..
pps. Since referring back to my broken toe post, I thought I'd update on my friends husband. He received his first dose of chemo is doing okay, but could still use a lot of prayer. Thanks
