  • RV Vaca 2013

I’m amazed at this VA weather. As I’m sorting through these images from California, I find it hard to believe that we were just in sunny, 70 degree weather and now that we’re back in VA, we have had yet another snow storm! I’m not complaining! I love the snow!! It’s just strange to see so much of it in late MARCH! Anyway, we’re continuing our journey through our RV Vaca 2013 and I can’t WAIT to share some pics from Yosemite! We traveled to Yosemite on our second day of the trip and it was just breathtaking! The views, the waterfalls and the sequoias were just AMAZING!! As we drove through this awesome area,

  • RV Vaca 2013

started last year. Michael was only able to stay at WPPI for a mere 48 hours last year and we knew that next year we wanted it to be different. Buddy and Jill stayed out west after WPPI last year and had a little vaca in the desert! They went exploring and their video convinced us that we needed to have a vacation out west in 2013!! So we did just that! Back in the fall we reserved a motorhome and Michael started planning out trip to the California coastline. We knew it was going to be fun but we had no idea how much AMAZING-NESS we would find on our journey!!

  • I'm Speaking!

I received an email from a sweet friend with a huge heart and big dreams. She asked me to be a part of something that she was dreaming and praying about. It was a big project…. like nothing she had attempted before!! It was a dream with a lot of risks, a lot of planning and it required a ton of prayer because it was so much bigger than just one person. This friend was Karen Stott. Karen felt that there was a need in the photography industry for Christian fellowship for women and oh man was she right!! She started Pursuit 31 and it just exploded!! The need was there and God has done absolutely AMAZING things through P31! It blows my mind!
