9 Fabulous Years

Today is our 9th wedding anniversary. I got these!!! Aren't they gorgeous!!!I can't believe it's been 9 years already.. It seams like just yesterday I met Mr. H. Here is a picture from the first few months of us dating. My oh my do we look so young... And my hair!!! it was so short.. I loved it!!! Not sure I have the nerve to go that short again :) I love this picture of Mr H & I.. It's one of my favorites.. My heart tears up each time i look at it (it's on my end table) This is the only copy I have of this. It is stuck to the glass and wax from a candle has melted on the front of the glass. If I try to peel the picture off it will rip... So there it sets on my table globed with wax and discolored.... But I display it proudly!!

Behind the scenes Texas Style

A few weeks ago I had an awesome opportunity to go after hours to the Houston Museum of Natural Science to the Texas Exhibit. WOW.. This was amazing! I'm still learning to use my camera and the trick shots :) After taking several hundred pictures I think I was able to capture a few good ones.. I keep hearing that if you get one great shot out of 36 then your doing great. Even though I'm getting one good one out of 36, I still wish I could get 1 of 1.. That's my OCD and desire to always be perfect.. Which I am so far from - LOL There is so much to remember and do when taking pictures.. I think I'm better at the moments where I'm not rushed. I can take my time and look for those angles aperture and which lens I should use... I tried to use my 55-200mm lens but I think that was over kill. So I quickly switched to my 18-55mm. Much better.. My 35mm was more difficult for me to use, still not use to that one.

Life Begins

This week has been very emotional for my house... My laptop was down for a few days, Big H is now a sophomore, Little H is now a 1st grader.. And my oldest niece Kelcie has graduated high school...

Well I got the time of the ceremony wrong.. Thinking it was at 4.. I had plenty of time... Woke Mr. H up at 1 to get ready. The girls and I were ready at 1:30.. PERFECT!! Then I had the wonderful idea to look at the invite again... WHAT!!!! June 4th at 2 pm it says... UGGG.. Mr. H was dressed in a record time. We made it... I plea the 5th on if any laws were broken in order to make the 40 min drive in less than .. well less than 40 min.s is all i will say :) We arrived just as the program began.. .. So proud of my beautiful niece!!!
