As Time Goes By

I’m still in shock sitting here that it’s been 3 years since I’ve blogged! How life has changed!

Below is just a very small sample of some things that have happened and/or changed!

I started a new job. I’m a social worker at a nursing home and absolutely love it! I can’t believe I’ve been there 2 and a half years already. The residents are great and I enjoy going in to work everyday! Thinking back, I’ve honestly enjoyed every job I’ve ever had so far. I can’t complain! I’ve learned from each experience and take what I’ve learned and apply it to the next!

We still live in the Loveliest village in the plains and LOVE it! There are days when I wish we lived up north in the snow… but hey, at least last year we had 2 snow days when all of Alabama shut down ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Bugaboo is now a Little Man! He will be 6 at the end of May. I can’t believe it. He wants an Army themed party and I’ve already created an Army Birthday Pinterest Board and already planning everything out! (Remember, I’m trying to be more organized, right?) ๐Ÿ™‚ And his big brother is now 18 and will graduate in May and then head off to college!!brotherly lovejoy of luck 036everyday Brocksleepy boyWell this little guy is now THIS BIG GUY!!ย 920837_10101323716712961_1725629797_o 1017198_10101442118045741_194620569_n 1374367_10101666719732161_1411351032_n 10329729_10102119695994101_9036091108333367627_o 10333723_10102190697671171_5107946259192816554_o 10410642_10102711342729301_8425674529315800114_n 10933839_10102685983644111_1003871602341709705_n

It just flies by!!

We still have our beloved Nacho! We still have a love/hate relationship. I love him until he pees on a rug or poops in Little Man’s room!may photos 109

I still love photography and am still taking photos! I’ve taken several online courses and workshops but as the kiddos say, TBH (to be honest) Photography requires a lot of money, time, training, practice, more money, and more time… and I just don’t have the time and money to put into it like I wish I could. I do a lot of sessions near the holidays as well as prom/homecoming and senior photos. Over the summer I shot a wedding in South Carolina and just recently shot a wedding reception for a couple who were married in India but had another large reception in the states so their friends could celebrate with them. And even this afternoon, I scheduled prom pictures for a couple of high school sweethearts! I will always love photography but I won’t quit my day job! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Speaking of jobs, I recently started another one! (what they say is true…a woman’s work is never done!) I am an education consultant for Education Consulting Associates and promote MYCAA scholarships to eligible military spouses! So if you know anyone who may be interested in taking a certificate program that will set them up on a new and exciting career path, let me know! I started a new blog to promote what I do and naturally, I can’t remember the password to get in and waiting on password recovery to kick in. So, I may need to create a new blog down the road but for now, the address is www.educationconsultingassociates.wordpress.com. It gives a 101 on MYCAA!

There have been a lot of changes made even in our town. Some for better and some for worse. For better, new trees planted at Toomer’s Corner.ย trees(Photo taken by the Montgomery Advertiser)toomersFor worse, these trees taken down ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Photo by me.

My sister was deployed in 2013 and came back safely home!!ย 548482_10101747621723921_176353156_n 1450804_10101747621369631_496618156_n 1476233_10101747622612141_1951409499_n

As I sit here and think of all that has gone down in the past 3 years, I’m thankful to know that some things are still the same. I still love my family more than anything. I have some pretty amazing friends, and I am content with my life. It is far from perfect and last year was really tough. But I made it and am better for it. It made me stronger and played a part in molding me into who I am becoming today.

I’m excited to see what the future holds for this girl!
