Thyroid

I have been struggling with a lot. My brain is foggy. My eyes are so tired I have been struggling to stay awake. My joints hurt. My heart palpitates. I work out and eat clean and gain weight. It’s nearly impossible for this darn weight to come off and it’s not for lack of trying.

I feel miserable all the time. I suck it up and accept it as life but it really gets to me some days.

I look at my three blessings and they just make all the difference. Those kids mean the world to me. Even when I feel like crap. They are so sweet. God really knew what he was doing blessing me with them. I am so thankful. Now. Here’s to hoping I find a new doc soon that can prescribe me a new medicine. I’m going to call around next week and see.

Hidden Gem in League City

This is my favorite spot right here in League City. Natural Living Coop is a fun little shop, herbs, bulk flours, beans, grains, etc. Fresh foods, drinks. I love the local made Ginger Beer, and my daughter got the raw spaghetti I think, it was zoodles and a yummy sauce. She ate every drop.

 

The people are all kind and SO helpful! 2018.6.29_4 copy2018.6.29_52018.6.29_8 copy2018.6.29_10 copyThis little antique shop is AMAZING! It is KID FRIENDLY!!

Loss

I did a session for some really close family friends last year on our visit.

She was diagnosed with cancer and wanted to get some good shots of her and her husband.

She died this week. I’m so sad.

I look at these pictures and I’m thankful we did the session. I’m thankful for these pictures. I’m thankful for the memories we got taking the pictures.

Don’t wait for a family session. Don’t feel like you have to lose weight first or something. People want to see you and not some version of you that you feel you need to be.

Moments fly by so quickly and then someone you love is gone.

Life and things

So Hurricane Harvey turned into a little jerk and flooded a lot of my friends out of their homes.

We evacuated.

We are happy we didn’t flood but we are crushed and feel helpless for our friends.

Fires are burning. Longview WA is so smoky kids aren’t getting recess. Thousands of acres gone because a kid wanted to throw a firecracker in the forest.

My mom is…… I don’t have adequate words but she’s stressing me out.

My uncle can’t find his kid. She’s in her twenties but I’m pretty sure she’s on drugs. I have no idea where her son is or how he is. I hoped better for her.

we went to the Dallas Botanical gardens one day while we were evacuated to get our minds relaxed. It was amazing there. the zoo had a free day for Houston evacuees. It was really neat! The plus was it’s super shaded at that zoo which was nice.

my sweet daughter had her birthday while we were evacuated so I’m thankful we were able to make it fun for her still!

Kids

They are stressful and amazing. Kids are joyous and energy sucking. They are a true and beautiful gift from God.

I'm trying to capture my moments more. Too often I forget to pull out my camera.

I was shooting with my broken lens. My favorite lens. I'm trying to save for a new one. This poor guys only focuses half of the time.

Funny story. I bought the lens new two years ago on amazon. I bring it to the camera repair shop and he said it's useless and from the 1990's. Not brand new. I paid a brand new price. Talk about bummed. So I get to start over again. People suck.
Not you 🤓 just everyone else!
