I know this blog is supposed to be used for "photography" purposes, but a huge part of my life is photographing my everyday life... or special occasions in my life, I should say. Not that anything overly out of this world has happened to me recently, but as the summer came to a close, suddenly I had to cram all of those "things I will not be able to do while in nursing school" into my life. One of them being going on vacation with my family to Lake Placid, NY. It was only a short 5 day trip that consisted of hiking, hiking, and uh... more hiking? Kidding, but seriously. I'm proud of my family for going on multiple hikes... meaning we went on a hike one day (probably a 3-miler), thought it wasn't too bad, and decided to double that number the next day. Regrets? None.
|This is my sister, Lauren.|
|This was after our second hike. The one where we got poured on, it wouldn't stop thundering, and we were mostly separated.|
|But it was worth it, because we got to see this awesome view.|
|EVERYONE MADE IT! (this is called Mt. Regis in the Adirondacks)|
|My dad makes hilarious faces.|
|I don't think I took this, but it was worth posting.|
|Myself and my sister, Kait|
|Sister Lauren and Kait|
|My four overly adorable siblings.|
|And then my overly adorable parents.|
|We went boating on my 21st birthday. This is when we were waiting for the boat.|
|She doesn't usually smile like this, but we thought it was cute.|
|My handsome brother who only lets me take his picture from afar.|
After I got home from vacation, I immediately rushed to my friend Valerie's wedding... where I was NOT the photographer, but I did get this one picture.
|Her ceremony was postponed over an hour due to the rain, but she was the greatest "bride-chilla" EVER and didn't even mind it at all.|
|My best friend, Rebecca Horning, bakes cakes. She baked this cake and has a business called "Love Handles Desserts" if you would like on for yourself.|
|Rebecca, Valerie, Me.. love the hearts.|
The following day I had a birthday dinner with my family and some friends. My sister and I did some last minute decorations (since we had just gotten back from vacation the day before) and she also made the food. She is a domestic queen.
|Not sure we ever fit so many people in our dining room before.|
|She's the greatest.|
|Kait's idea for the napkin holders.|
|Wine glass from my friend and roommate, Alyssa. Owls are my favorite and she made this.|
Goal is to blog more this year. I think I've said that far too many times now.
This is a start.
