I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Tangled Dreams, attempt number 2

  I spent several hours the night before last writing about dreams. Rapunzel, or rather her movie, "Tangled", had me thinking deep thoughts. She sets out on a mission: to see the lights she has always dreamed about. She inspires those around her to remember, and live for, the dreams they may have set aside. So I wrote about my dreams, and tried to inspire you, my readers, to remember yours.

 But with one careless click, my musings disappeared.

 Just like quite a few of my dreams.

 Ironic, isn't it?

 "Tangled" really is an appropriate title. How often those things we dream about, wish for, invest ourselves in.... they are not simple, or clear cut, or easy. Rather, they are mixed together and messed up and tangled into a mass of confusion.

 But they are still our dreams.

 I'm not sure where some of my dreams are headed right now. However, I know how to wait. Hopefully with patience and grace! And like Rapunzel, I can keep myself busy in the meantime. I may not be able to paint the world that surrounds me, but I am having fun capturing it in my own way.

 Yesterday I had a chance to take family photos and "belly shots" for one of my best friends
I took nearly 400. 
 These are a few of my favorites. 

 I had to blow this one up so you can see her face. It isn't as clear, because for some reason pictures get blurry when I make them extra large, but I just love her expression in this picture! 

Aren't they a beautiful family? 
I can't wait to meet little Ruby! 
(and hopefully take some great pictures of her too)

Dreams -
 I might not get everything I want, right when I want it. But I sure do like having a camera to keep me busy in the meantime!

Carrie looks great! You're getting so good with the picture taking! I guess it helps to have such photogenic people around you to photograph!

These are Great!! I love how you set them up so cute. What joy these bring. :-)

My photography might slow down a bit. I am waiting to go to the emergency clinic. I fell twisting my ankle yesterday going down the steps in the back. Me and camera. Camera is ok, but ankle is not. :-(
