Today I Took Pictures.

Hi friends!  Long time, no talk! 

Just wanted to share a current picture of Ash, Britt, and Elle.  I've been practicing shooting pictures in manual mode.  Today I was messing around with dark rooms and bumping the ISO way up.  Makes for an interesting grainy look.  Not my fave, but artsy looking anyway.

(my favorite little people) 

So, remember how I said I was gonna let this blog go dark and blog with my husband over at wordpress?  Yeah...............

He lost interest, so I lost interest, plus wordpress is SO different and I just couldn't figure it all out!

School has been a major struggle for me and I've come to the conclusion that I want to continue learning, but I also want to be able to be a good wife and mom and still have time to do other things I want to do.  So, I'm going to just take one class a semester. 

I've also been doing CrossFit, which I absolutely LOVE, but I messed up my back and hip (from a former injury), so I've got to take a break and do exercise that is less intense.  Boo!

I've been contemplating whether I should share the next bit and I think I will.  I miscarried 3 weeks ago.  I was only 5-6 weeks along and it wasn't a pregnancy that I was planning or expecting.  Still, I was sad, but also grateful that I lost the baby early instead of later, as I tend to get more and more attached as the weeks of pregnancy progress.  :(

Tony is done with school in a week.  Graduation time!!  Woohoo!  Then we will be moving back to the Seattle area.  So.  Stinkin'.  Stoked!!

How's that for a super quick update?  I seriously miss you guys.  But I'm not gonna go making blogging promises I might not keep.  It'll be what it'll be.

Sorry to hear about your miscarriage but I am happy to read your post. I have been checking both your blogs every now and then for updates.

Very nice photo of your girls. Ya, just take it easy with one class a semester.

Congrats to Tony for graduating!

So sorry about the miscarriage :( That is rough.

And, wow, I love the expressions in that image- those girls are so beautiful. Way to go playing w/the ISO :)

That's a great photo. I'm sorry to hear about the miscarriage. It's such a hard thing to go through. I do use Morrocan oil & have an old argon oil, so I'm trying that again, but it doesn't seem to be helping much. I'm going to the hair dresser tomorrow.

I'm so sorry to read of your miscarriage.

That is a fantastic picture of your girls. I agree that it looks very artsy. Isn't shooting on manual awesome?!

Great to read on your updates. But sorry bout the miscarried bit though.

Hopefully I will find time to shoot in manual soon too. With a new baby... My hands are full. I am amazed how well you coped with three!

So sorry to hear that you had a miscarriage! That must have been emotionally draining. I know it wasn't a planned pregnancy, but it also isn't easy going through a miscarriage.
