who needs sleep?

  Who needs sleep? Well, you’re never gonna get it Who needs sleep? Tell me what’s that for Who needs sleep? Be happy with what you’re getting There’s a guy who’s been awake Since the Second World War My hands are locked up tight in fists My mind is racing, filled with lists Of things […]

One Family Photo #PSF

one family photo

  Back in the spring of 2008, I asked my sister (who was over at our house at the time) to take a picture of my family in front of our house. Even though my sister is an incredible photographer, the point was not to get the “perfect” family photo, but just to capture all […]

Sugarloaf Mountain in Fall #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

Sugarloaf Mountain

  My mother-in-law came to visit us last weekend, and we took advantage of the beautiful fall weather and an extra day off school to hike around Sugarloaf Mountain. We made it back with just enough time to eat some dinner before heading out to trick or treat. It was a perfect way to spend […]

Halloween Class Party 2014 #PSF

Halloween class parties

  It has been a busy day. A busy, busy day. But despite the busy-ness of the day, I was able to make it to AJ’s 4th grade Halloween class party and school costume parade. As my kids often do, AJ changed his mind about his costume at the last minute – before he left […]

My Guy {Afterglow} #PSF

Afterglow quartet 2014

  Afterglow is back and they are rocking it already this school year! My daughter’s quartet, Afterglow, performed at their first concert of the year last night, and they brought the house down. I love that in just a year since they first started singing together they have not only improved so much, but they […]

A Lone Fall Photo Shoot #PSF – Give Me Your Best Shot

fall photo shoot-3

  Last fall, I swore off professional photography and officially closed the doors of my photography business. My blog had become busy enough, and frankly I was making more money for my time through my blog than I was for my photography. I just couldn’t do them both well at the same time. I think […]

On the Road Again #PSF


  I’m sitting at LAX on a layover from San Jose to home in Maryland. My computer isn’t working, so I’m typing on my iPad while I eat a quesadilla with carne asada…hoping that this was an ok choice before heading on a 5 hour flight. Although I have so much I could say about […]

Horseback Riding – Jackson, Wyoming #PSF

Horseback riding in Jackson Wyoming

  One of the highlights of my summer was horseback riding with my 15-year-old daughter in the mountains near Jackson, Wyoming. Necco was not interested in white water rafting with the rest of the family, and I was more than happy to trade in a wet suit for a pair of jeans. There are a […]

{Give Me Your Best} Selfies in LA #PSF


  OK, I realize that not all of these are selfies….but in just 2 days in Los Angeles I’ve taken and posted more pictures of myself than I have in the last 2 months. It must be the hair cut. I can’t wait to tell you all about the trip that I’m on…but for now […]

Yellowstone National Park #PSF


  It’s hard to believe that I am still going through pictures from this summer’s trip. I suppose this is what happens when the 6-week-long road trip ends the day before school starts. We jumped right in to the fall routine and haven’t had a real chance to recover from the travel. Or maybe it’s […]
