About Me

My photo
Thank you for visting my blog. When I started this blog, it was just the vehicle for which I had hoped to share photos of our life in Chicagoland with our loved ones, but it has turned into so much more for me. Life is ever evolving in our household and time no longer stands still. Every moment is precious and worthy of being captured and treasured. In addition, through my love of the camera, I have had the opportunity to meet and also capture moments in others' lives. It is my hope, with this blog, that when my memory fails me, the words and photos on this blog will remind of where we were. History...Through My Glass...

new year...new blog...

Thank you for visiting us here this past year. It's been great! However, I've got a new blog...I'm moving to Wordpress. It should allow for more features related to showcasing photography than this one.

Please visit us here:

happy holidays!

Hanukkah has already begun, but wanting to send our wishes out to all. We got our cards out kind of late so I didn't want to post too early. These were our cards this year:

Front of card:

Inside Spread (think: top and bottom of a folded card):

I can truly say that it was a labor of love. I designed them from some digital paper that I got for free from Three Peas. There were no tears this year as we learned that Roan loves to be in photos, if we are in them with him.

I can't believe how much my baby is now a little boy. In addition to his increadible imagination, he has begun to build things (boats) with his legos. He really loves his pirate ships!

h'mong doll

I'm a total dork, but I felt so proud to see this doll on the pages of Cookie Magazine so I had to look them online. I so want to get one, but for $105, that's kind of steep! Maybe I can justify it as a piece of art? Here is the link in case you want to check out the store. BTW...I love the store!
