I haven’t been kidnapped…

I just realized that pretty much this WHOLE summer has gone by without me posting a single thing! Really it was a very busy summer….

This happened (YAY ME)…

Then I turned 40…. or rather I celebrated the 19th Anniversary of my 21st Birthday!

But there’s been a LOT of photography happening too! Please feel free to check it out by visiting my Fine Art Gallery on my business website!

New Photos!

Soooo How was your summer? What’s happening with you guys?

Up to my ears in Potatoes…

OMG… in the last week I have been through 20lbs of potatoes! Picnics, picnics and MORE picnics.

Curious, what is YOUR “go-t0” dish to bring to a Pot Luck or picnic?

All of these potatoes have gone to a dish that can be found on the side of the Lipton Onion soup package. VOILA! Oven roasted potatoes… the hardest part is cutting them all up!

Send me your recipes in the comments section! I need some inspiration, summer hasn’t even begun and I am BURNT OUT on potatoes!

  

You Can Get there from here… Griswold Point

I had a fantastic last couple of weeks…

Including an amazing Mother’s Day where we got to spend a majority of the day as a family doing exactly what I had hoped we could do… Walking on a local beach at ULTRA low tide with my camera in hand! Which resulted in some shots I am very happy with and very sentimental towards!

Beyond the lens… doing good things!

Beyond being a photographer, I have several other hobbies! Obviously hiking is a huge part of my life and spending time with my family is the BIGGEST part of my life. However, every now and then I like to do something different… something dirty! Yes, I said Dirty!!

Once a year I take a couple months and begin raising funds for Ms Research! Every April I do the MuckFest for Ms event in Boston (well Ft. Devens) MA. Getting down and DIRTY for a good cause! I have raised from 2013-2015 almost $2000 personally towards this cause! I’ve gotten muddy, mucky, dusty, bruised and cold because I feel well enough to and because there are some others that can’t. Every year I meet someone running the race who is personally affected by Ms but they are there, trying their best through the pain and discomfort of cold water and hills and misery!

Tomorrow is the event… so I will don my cheesy purple unicorn t-shirt, my well worn official mud sneakers (with new liners) and duct tape my laces and off I will go!

Photos will follow! (Here’s a couple from last year- 30lbs heavier UGG then)

What do YOU do to put the good out into the universe?

Beneath the Rocky Exterior

Sometimes you need to look beyond the rocky exterior to see the beauty within. On a recent local hike up Lantern Hill my husband inadvertently kicked over a larger rock. I looked at it from afar and was wondering what the orange blobs on the bottom of the rock were. Upon closer inspection I discovered the beauty hiding underneath…

I think I am one lucky gal!

You gotta stop and appreciate the world beneath your feet… or boots in this case!
