She's alive!

Ok ok! After many emails and curious clients, family members and friends- nope, I'm not dead. Yes, I'm fine. I truly do appreciate everyone who was concerned though! You guys are very sweet to check up on me! Here is my reason for being absent lately... STUDENT TEACHING!! I am sooo busy with it! But, on the bright side, I only have a few more weeks of it and then maybe I can get a job and get paid for working 40 hour weeks with first graders.
Do I like it? Love it. I really think that it's what I'm meant to do! I know some of you might think I'm crazy for wanting to teach but you wouldn't believe how enjoyable I find it. It's an extremely fufilling career and I have the best stories! (Can you believe I had a student wear their pants to school backwards?? Freaking hilarious!)
What about my photography business? Well, I booked a few weddings for next year but have decided to stop taking them for '09. I still adore photography and love shooting weddings but feel like the teaching career is my calling. As of right now, we (me and Shane) graduate in December and will need to start looking for jobs. I plan to stick around Lubbock as long as I can find a job in August, but if not we'll have to go where the job is. After I get settled in my teaching career I may still take on some summer weddings, but as of right now I'm just booking sessions. (Engagements, Bridals, After sessions, families and yes, maybe even kiddos)
To my current clients: Yes, I am still 100% dedicated to you and you will still recieve excellent service and quality products! No worries there!
Thanks again for all the caring people who were checking up on me! I'll try to do better blogging now that the semester is winding down!

I leave you with our Christmas card for this year. Pictures thanks to Lauren Zaffos!!

Katy and Jeremy

I'm pretty darn late at blogging my faves from this awesome wedding. Sorry about that Katy!

I got this idea from Lauren Clark.

Helpful Scripture

Over the past few days there have been some trying things going on in my life. It can really get you down, but I know that God has a reason and a plan. I know that I'm not the only one who experiences heartache so I thought I'd share some scripture that is helping me out!

  • But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
  • The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."
  • "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"

Raider turns 1!

Our Raider turned 1! We celebrated by making her 'puppy edible' cupcakes! These things were sick! So plain tasting, but the dogs ate them up! They'll eat anything...

Here's just a few favorites that I thought I'd post of Kristen's bridals...

Jordan and Dewey wedding

Jordan and Dewey had a gorgeous wedding! It was at the Four Seasons hotel in Dallas. Here's some faves...

Jordan and her sister-in-laws

dancing the night away

ok! i have to post these because they make me laugh! it was planned that the bridesmaids and groomsmen would be announced into the reception in pairs. after they were announced they were to dance their way through the crowd until they reached the dance floor. Then they were to do a little performance on the dance floor. So, here's the pictures of my sister-in-law Genny dancing her heart out!
I love this entry pic! It looks like she's saying, "Hold onto your pants people!" Haha!

Check out my brothers expression as he watches his wife dance her way through the crowd!

Get it girl!

Eat your heart out. Go Gen!
