moving forward

all good things must end...  or at least start fresh with a clean slate.

I'm moving on to another blog.  

It will be filled with new photo adventures & Austin home tours just like my Daily Cupcake plus who knows what other lovelies I will add.


I need to start over.

So please, if you don't mind forgiving my long absence.  

Won't you join me at my new blog?

hope to see you soon!

almost normal

{smiles, a star, and #1 student...  all written on my leg by my physical therapists during a monthly evaluation}

so it has been a while.

and of course, on a day when I'm wanting to take a photo, Josh has taken the digital camera to work.


I decided I would share a photo from earlier on this month.

just provide a little update on what is going on these days.


my scars are fading slowly,

the pain and stiffness is still there, but nothing like before.

I can bend my knee to pretty much what my other knee can do.


one could almost say I walk "normal" most of the time.

I have to say, physical therapy has been really good for me.

besides the obvious, I've been inspired.


to get in better shape/ health/ weight.

all of it.

I'm finally doing it.

and it feels fabulous.


so I hope you can forgive me from being absent here.

I've just been rather focused these days and I spend less time in blog world.

I hope that life is treating you right.

and don't be surprised when I randomly stop by and say hi.


until next time...

loved by the sun

sunday was laced in sunshine.

monday blanketed with clouds.

not really complaining.

just saying.

been having a difficult time getting inspired to take photos again.

and keep up with this blog.

always a work in progress I guess.


I think I just need a good kick in the pants.

I'll be back tomorrow.

with a long overdue home tour!

been missing those...

until then,

happy monday!

little bit of love

feeling moments of "normal" again

my sister coming to visit for a gal's weekend

remembering how he proposed

puppy kisses

sharing dinner recipes

getting rid of "the beast" (CPM machine)

a clean house!


hmmm...  I don't think my house has been this clean since right before surgery, the first time.

it feels so good.

another chilly day - I can barely feel my toes!

must retreat to the covers.

my mother in law is having knee surgery today.

we will all be praying for her.


hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
