Reflection on my year – 2011

It’s hard to believe another year has gone by… 2011 is about at a close and I have been reflecting on everything that has happened this year.

I graduated from college with my AFA in May. That was something that I wasn’t sure that I would ever accomplish being a mom of 5 kidlings. I added photography to my already established web business.

In September, Larry and I celebrated our 14th anniversary and as a gift to each other is a cruise to Alaska in 2012.

Larry and I finished our foster adopt classes in September and was award our certification from the state in November. We have gotten a few calls for out of area kids, but have not officially taken any as of yet. We are anxiously awaiting our new family members to be placed in our house.

Both of my parents old Springer Spaniels passed away this year. Harpy in May and Gargamel in October. Gargy was Larry’s and my first kid, before Shelby was born.

I finished my first of 3 semesters at Liberty University for my Bachelors in Education. I am hoping with the Christian based background of Liberty and my Art Background that I will be able to teach Christian style art to kids one day. Who knows… I may go onto get my MA in Psychology and work with special needs children in the future.

I am opening a new digital shop online at – The grand opening for that shop is tomorrow.

May God bless each of you in the coming year!
