Hey "ALL" to say all may not need much if I don't get my butt in gear and post more often. To say the least I have had a very stressful few months... BUT i ~think~ things may be looking up, other than the total snow storm we had here yesterday, it felt like christmas!! Been going to school learning to develop my own Black and white pictures, it is a slow process for someone like me, but still fun! Hard however to show off tho, as it isn't digital. I did have a family photo shoot recently which was a high light for sure. Second time I have worked with this family, they are great!! And to add to the perk of this family, they had a brand new puppy for me to snuggle and when I showed up, I had my usual Tim Horton's coffee, and instead they handed me a lovely glass of wine!! I love my jobs!! here are a few pics from that visit!!! thanks for reading

amazing what a few days bring... lately things in world have been going very well, starting to get myself together.... A major set back rocked our world this week, we took our youngest Maggie(year old Maltese) in for pre-op blood work before getting fixed, and to our shock they found something. After further testing it was found that her liver isn't functioning the way it should. This could be a sign of a potentially terminal liver condition found in small dogs called a "liver shunt" a birth defect some dogs have, where the blood supply bypasses the liver, not cleaning the blood, and causing the liver to atrophy... not good!! we take her in for more testing to confirm this diagnosis on Monday, please send her your happy thoughts.... my sweet little girl.... I have no children so she truly is my baby!

This is a title to an awesome book I once read by "sark", but today it describes how I am feeling. Not only am I loving my new job, and feel inspired by the ladies I work with every day, but started back to school today, and although I wasn't sure I was ready to go back I am glad I did, I am so excited about the next 12 weeks ahead. we are learning black and white dark room techniques using a film camera, something I haven't touched in a long time. Freaking I talked to my BF about where i was going to get one as I have been a digi girl for some time now, and he reminded me that he has a great film camera. Then I remembered about a gift my brother gave me about six months ago... a pentax film camera, from the 1960's that once belonged to my Grandpa Herald Soby, who passed away in the late eighties... My dad gave it to my Brother, thinking it may be of interest to him, however my brother knowing my love for photography, thought it better suited in my hands... Thanks Craig!! I feel this closeness to my Grandpa, holding his camera, reminds me of the importance of taking pictures...
