would you like to share? (+ family photos)

Hi.  I forgot to send a reminder e-mail again.  So you get me :o).  That isn't so bad right?

January 4th is the last Wednesday I have scheduled for 'a day in the life' posts.  If you would like to be featured, please leave your first name, e-mail address and blog address in the comments section of this post.  I'm trying not to repeat anyone who has already participated (because it is a fun way to introduce people to new blogs), but if you really really REALLY want to write another post, go ahead and leave your name.  I'll think about it :o).

I'll do my best to have a schedule put together and e-mailed out by the end next week!

Since nobody loves a post without pictures, I thought I'd include some from our family session about a month ago.  These photos were taken by the talented and oh so sweet Adrienne Maples*.

don't you just love her face in that one?  pretty sure she had no idea what was going on.

Ryann was totally just eating marshmallows in that last shot.  None of these are the one I selected for our holiday card.  I can't call it a Christmas card anymore since, well, yet again they won't make it out before Christmas.  I did order them last week, but unfortunately when I checked the tracking they won't be delivered until the 23rd.  Boo.  On a positive note, I apparently didn't order any holiday cards until December 27th last year according to my shutterfly account, so I am getting better!

I'll be on top of my game next year.  I swear!

*The disc I received contained web ready files that were unedited.  All compositions are Adrienne's, but any retouching (i.e. removing the giant scratch off Ryann's forehead) was done by me.  Therefore if the minimal editing sucks, don't blame Adrienne or assume it is an accurate example of her work :o).

I love following your blog and your pretty little girl.

I am new to blogging, but it has quickly become my favorite past time or hobby, that is, when I'm not loving life with my 4-month old.

I would love to be considered.

My blog is "unfinished" to say the least -- hasn't been updated since our move this summer to Nashville, but I'd love to share a day in our new life.
