I’m in the middle of finalizing a newborn session (she’s a beauty and the family was amazing) and finishing the Christmas Card session I did with my cousins.

Here’s a Lensbaby outtake from after we changed out of fancy outfits and my cousins showed me all of their latest tricks – soccer stud, skating star, and bicycling beauty. I fell in love with the blur in this shot instantly. Such a representation of how quickly they go and grow.

Check in at the other blog for some more pictures from that day.

Day After Thanksgiving 2010

I have already begun religiously sporting my Charger gear every Sunday. I love football season. It should come as no surprise.

My dearest Chargers… thank you for starting October well. Let’s not repeat September. GO BOLTS!

San Diego Chargers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego on September 19, 2010

San Diego! Super Chargers!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how much is a picture of words worth?

Capturing Scripture

I had a very relaxing and rejuvenating weekend this weekend on a women’s retreat with my roommate’s church. Faith Community, thank you for welcoming me. You are beautiful women.

This was the perfect beginning to this Lenten season…

Also? I suspect that many of these “word” pictures will find themselves as the backdrop to many new wallpapers. Inspiration strikes. :)

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

Budding Bloom

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
‘Cause we are all a part
Of the ordinary miracle

Use of miracle two days in a row?! Well, yes. I didn’t know I’d want to use it today when I wrote yesterday’s entry, but it’s really the perfect fit. This picture was taken on a walk during my lunch break with a remarkable, now former, coworker.

The Sarah McLachlan song lyrics seemed perfect for this picture of a flower about to bloom. I was reminded of the beauty in her lyrics during tonight’s opening ceremony for the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. I’d forgotten how much I love that song until Sarah performed. The dancing was exquisite and the special effects amazing. I’ve loved every minute of the ceremony thus far. Canada really did a marvelous job. Thank you to our northern neighbors! I hope we can all be reminded of life’s daily, ordinary miracles. And now, go Team USA!

I have also cross-posted this entry at my brand new photography blog (which is also linked in the sidebar).

Nothing like a Friday night at Lestat’s…

When you feel
The dark inside you
And the moon and stars
Don’t lead you nowhere
Feels like no one’s
Watching up there

Let me me be
Your lighthouse
Let me guide your hand
Let me be your shelter
For you
For you I stand ~Ernie Halter, “Lighthouse”

A fantastic show… So glad I went.

“When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.”

Holy darkness,
Blessed night,
Heaven’s answer hidden from our sight.
As we await You,
O God of silence,
We embrace Your holy night.

Holy Darkness, Blessed Night

Candlelight Mass is as beautiful, emotional, and wonderful as it was when I was a student: a perfect way to start the final week of Advent.
