It's August here in Texas! The heat is in full force, but I hope that means slightly cooler autumn weather is around the corner! ;)
Here are some highlights from the past month:
- We returned from a beach vacation and our first vacation without our toddler. She stayed with her grandparents; it is a total blessing to be near family when your husband is active duty in the Army!
- I started a new job working at a hospital in Temple, Texas. Through work, I’ve already met some wonderful people. Many nurses I work with continually say they LOVE working at the hospital and on this unit. The supportive morale was welcoming and I hope I can contribute.
- I exceeded one of my personal goals to take 3-4 photography workshops this year. I’m at 5 already! The most recent course I took was Xanthe Berkley's Time Capsule Video course. You can see my Fourth of July Vacation video here.
First Photo: I was determined to get some summer-themed photos. Our family dog got bath in the backyard and we splashed around outside. We went to the water park in Lion’s Den Park in Killeen too. Our daughter loves playout outside and in water, but we definitely have to go after nap time.
Second Photo: Bahaha, this is delightful revenge for the first year of sleepless nights. At least when she wakes up and seems surprised, she appears innocent and sweet.
Third Photo: Maybe I have biased “mom eyes” for this one. It’s just a simple close up with a genuine smile and bright eyes with catchlights. Usually my daughter will only smile if my husband does something funny, but not usually at the camera. (Any other moms/photographers relate??)
Fourth Photo: I know this one is random, but I couldn’t decide between this and others… But this one makes me so happy! I handed the camera to my husband to capture this cute moment. Sometimes our toddler likes to pat us on the bum. She uses the same gentle motions like when she pets our dog. I don’t get the toddler logic, but it’s sweet and endearing.
