Good Bye. Hello.

Oh 2010...
Blog. Wow. Thank you. It's been 5 years and four million times a learning experience in the goodness of mankind + the internet. Blog readers are good people. I have felt supported and connected and documented and validated and motivated and full of gratitude. Thank you, blog.
Me. Oh, my. I am getting older. This was a good year for me because I fell in love with photography and the connections that it brings out in people.  I see something in people. I never would have thought that I would have started my photography journey in February and by December started up my own photog business. It make me beyond the moon happy to not only see the love, but feel it in my photos.  I love editing photos that make me stop, laugh, and have to regroup because I remember the moment.  It feels comfortable + authentic. I have found my style and love that it is me, and only me and can never be reproduced by others.  YEAH. THIS. FEELS. RIGHT.
Me.  I am thankful that I have learned that things are merely things are merely things and can NEVER fill a void.  Oh, and I only bought one coach purse in 2010- which was a REGRETTABLE moment of weakness and returned it a day later.-   I'm a true work in progress.Seems it takes me a couple of tries at things to settle in, feel comfortable and get it. I'm feeling really good about life and what I understand will happen next. I know more now. 
2010. The hard parts have been far outweighed by the goodness. You have been overly generous with me and I appreciate that. I am humbled. Some parts of this year seemed frustrating and uncomfortable.  2010 was a big reminder that life is what happens when you're making other plans... The good stuff wouldn't have been possible without the uncomfortable parts... so, hey 2010 - it all works out in the end.
2011. You haven't started yet, but I have big + simple plans based on what I learned in 2010... Moments, laughter, hugs. MORE PHOTOS. Much, much more goodness.  2011, lets work on Roots
Much Love,

With Merry To All.

It's never cold where heart abide.

Snow Angels.


Dear December,
For a month that started with such promise - you are letting me down. Which sucks because I love you.  December - can we turn this around? I'd rather be making up than breaking up,
Your biggest fan.

Happy December.

It's my favorite month of the year and not just because it's my birth month.  Well ok, that too!
Happy December to you all!
A time to give, hope, love, share, pray, help and hug.

"Before going to bed
After a fall of snow
I look out on the field
Shining there in the moonlight
So calm, untouched and white
Snow silence fills my head
After I leave the window.

Hours later near dawn
When I look down again
The whole landscape has changed
The perfect surface gone
Criss-crossed and written on
where the wild creatures ranged
while the moon rose and shone.

why did my dog not bark?
Why did I hear no sound
There on the snow-locked ground
In the tumultuous dark?

How much can come, how much can go
When the December moon is bright,
What worlds of play we'll never know
Sleeping away the cold white night
After a fall of snow."
- May Sarton, December Moon

Tis the Season 4 Holiday Cards!

Check out this amazing deal for holiday photos!

The HOLIDAY PHOTO CARDS.If you’re like me – you probably feel pressure to send out Christmas cards. BUT IF YOU’RE NOT LIKE ME – you probably send them. I start with good intentions and then usually drop the ball somewhere along the line because I get all hung up on the PERFECT DESIGN. NOT THIS YEAR. We are ready to go. I got carried away when I was designing cards and ended up with some really pretty versions. AND IT IS THE SEASON OF SHARING…
SO I am making them available to you. Steal of a deal at $20/design. You send me the (high quality) photo of your choice and I will set it up in the holiday 5×5 of your choice and SEND IT BACK TO YOU DIGITALLY. In HIGH RESOLUTION. Then you can go and make as many copies as you want WHERE-EVER-THE-HECK you do your photo printing (personally, I love, WHCC, MpixPRo). Costco, Walmart, Target, whatever. Go nuts. ( is having a sale this weekend!)
