Beginner shots with my new Nikon!

Posted in Family by

I treated myself to a new camera recently! This is perfect for the newbie like myself. It’s the  Nikon COOLPIX B700. It’s a point and shoot camera that takes amazing photos.   Its a DSLR-style design, including a PSAM mode dial, that is easy to handle. I took these pictures while visiting Fox Squirrel Maze in Plant City. They have hayrides, wildlife, crafts and the famous corn maze.

Even with a leaf in his face, this picture is one of my favorites.

My family of four is now complete

Posted in Family, Life by

Trace Micheal Shephard was born on July 24, 2015. We just celebrated his 1st birthday! This little guy is my answered prayer. The doctors didn’t want me to get pregnant for a least another 1.5 years. As a cancer survivor, I’m suppose to be 3 years out from my diagnosis so that would be June 2013.  We found out we were pregnant in December of 2014 and I delivered a healthy baby boy in July 24. Did I mention that I’m still cancer-free? I believe things happen for a reason and Trace came right when he was suppose to.  Our family is complete now and I’m grateful for all the goodness that comes our way.

Speaking of goodness. On my free-time I’m working on updating my site and shifting the focus to a more lifestyle/Mommy blog. It’s taking me longer than expected but I’m making progress.  About a month ago I decided to transfer from to .org which required me to transfer all my site’s content to Bluehost. In doing so I lost my last 5 posts! I remember that my last post was an update on our growing family. So I’m posting it again!
