And More Updates

Oh wow! Where did the time go?! The last time I wrote it was Miss Ohio week and I was finishing up with Ohio Idol...

My little family traveled to Florida in early July. My hubs celebrated his birthday there...and our baby girl got sick. So it was an eventful where we ended up at urgent care because little Cookie felt so bad. Here are some fun family vaca pics:

 This was one of the nights she didn't feel good...with  her cousins, Cody & Camden. Yes, the three C's. No, we did not plan that!

Two days after we got back from Florida, I had the wonderful opportunity of reading to a group of students at Lincoln Park in Columbus for their summer Freedom Schools Read Aloud program! I had a great time and can't wait to go back!

The following weekend I shot a wedding for the first time in TWO years with Crystal Jo Foto! I was silly excited to work with her again! Here are some of my shots from that day:

We've been keeping ourselves busy with the new house. Starting small. Things like tile work and painting. Finishing up projects that the previous owners left. We don't mind that nothing was done; it allows us to pick what we want for those finishing touches. 

Aside from the day-to-day grind of work, we're trying to enjoy our summer. Lots of visiting with friends and family, now that we have the space...and a pool...and a fire pit. ;) I feel truly blessed. I know Miss Ohio held her send-off celebration to Miss America last weekend. Very exciting! I can't believe she leaves for Atlantic City in less than a week!

I am thrilled to go to AC to cheer her on with our Miss Ohio sister, Becky! I'm also looking forward to meeting up with the Miss America class of '07-'08! We have plans in the works. Of course you know, photos galore upon our return! 

Stay tuned...and be blessed.
