One of the tasks we’ve been working on with the kids this year is how to learn to tie shoes.  This wasn’t an easy feat for Hudson and Ella got it right away (which made it worse for him).  So, we made this shoelace box so that they both could practice and now they both have it down pat!

When I bought my first digital SLR camera I pined for it for months.  I fell in love with photography when planning my wedding, we were planning a family, and I knew I wanted to be able to beautifully document that baby’s childhood.  So, when my camera arrived I pulled it out the box and began shooting.  I was instantly confused why some of my images were dark or blurry.  I had a vision of what I wanted my images to look like (bright, sharp, and with that beautiful blurry background) but was instantly frustrated because I didn’t know how to get from point A to point B.
