Monthly Color Blog Challenge } Nebraska Photographer

I am a bit late on my color blog this month, I apologize!! It is a holiday weekend, after all!

This month our colors were yellow and/or blue. I went home this month to Michigan, as some of you may know. My first photos is of a daffodil, which I always love to see when I go back to my parent's house.

The second is my son on the beach of Lake Superior. I love this lake and this beach. When I lived there in high school, it was my go-to place to unwind and write in my journal. As I type this, a raging wildfire is consuming much of my home county. So far it has burned over 21,000 acres and isn't completely contained. It hasn't threatened my parent's home yet, but it has taken quite a few cabins and a beloved business. It's heartbreaking to see and it will look completely different when we go home again.

Please continue to the next photographer, Lynn Puzzo and see what we all came up with for this month! 

Next month~ rainbow pastel...interesting!!

Friday Photo Week 20 } Nebraska Photographer

As you know, I have been traveling with my son the last couple of weeks. I visited my in-laws and my parent's house. I did some relaxing at my Mom's (didn't do half the things I had planned on doing), and then the wildness began!

I found my wedding dress, oh it's nothing like I thought I would get. I had imagined a plain white dress growing up, then had thoughts of this lace keyhole back gown. I did go with the lace and straps, other then that it is NOTHING like I thought I would get. I love it!

My sister, mother and bridesmaid (my long time friend of 26 years) put on a beautiful bridal shower for me. I was blessed yet again with items M and I need. My son even got to taste pop for the first time! Yes, I am a mother that will NOT give my toddler pop. Oh and he snuck a sip of my champagne punch, lol. Thankfully he didn't puke.

Oh and then the bachelorette party. Let's just say this~ it was a blast! My girls know how to party!

I leave you this week with a photo of my absolute favorite place in the whole world. Lake Superior. No matter where I call home, this will forever be my HOME.

Happy Friday everyone!!

Friday Photo Week 18 & 19 {Nebraska Photographer}

Ah, as expected I didn't get a blog posted last week as I was on the road. My son and I drove from our home in northern Nebraska to Minneapolis, MN to my future in-laws. We drove through driving rain, and it turns out we were behind a band of storms that included some tornadoes...not fun. We made it safely and had a wonderful time with my fiance's family.

cutting the cake at my MN bridal shower...oh so good!!

On Monday, my mother and son and I drove from Minneapolis to my parent's house in the Upper Peninsula of MI. It was uneventful and long. It's nice to be sitting here looking at the lake. I always love coming up here. I have yet to go into town, just been relaxing and catching up on my rest. My son is having a blast with the VERY large cat my parents have. Ok, he's my cat from college and when I moved to MN M wouldn't let me bring him! lol He is massive now, and sheds like crazy. Sparty (the cat) is so good with my son. They play and when he has had enough he goes and hides. Then I get asked "Mom, where kitty go?", too funny.

I am posting my Friday post today because tomorrow I try on wedding dresses!! I am nervous and excited. I know what I want and have an idea in my head, but we will see if it looks as good on me in person. We are going to have our own "bridal room" and my sister, mom, niece and little man will be with me. Will keep you posted if I find "the one"!

Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! I am so happy I get to spend it with my sister and Mom!
