Impromptu Photo Session

It would be difficult to number the reasons I love being back in Oklahoma City - there are simply too many to count. However, being close to great friends is at the top of my list. One such friend in particular is like a sister to me and despite looking absolutely nothing alike, we are very similar in many other ways. Recently, we were goofing around and I captured these photos of her - I love each one so much - we spend a lot of time laughing together and they perfectly capture her personality.

Turning Thirteen...

Shut the front door - I have a teenager. Do you remember turning 13? I do...I remember feeling so grown up. I also remember thinking how "old" my parents seemed. You know, like ancient. They were all of 38. Whew. So when my oldest offspring hit 13 last week I couldn't help but wonder if I seem old to him. He is a very honest child so I refrained from asking...not sure I could've handled it.

Thirteen years have never gone by so fast. I couldn't be more proud of the young man he is becoming. Thoughtful, kind, full of humor, possesses strong morals, and is an excellent decision maker (let's hope that holds true throughout his teen years). Here is a peak at his 13 year photo shoot....

First OKC Thunderstorm

My blog is undergoing yet another makeover. The name will remain the same, but finding time to redo the layout and header are proving difficult. Amongst the mountain of cardboard boxes, four kids and the professor, I'm brewing extra pots of coffee and taking lots of deep breaths. In business news, I finally found the perfect bakery space and - if all proceeds smoothly - we will be rocking and rolling by fall. A slightly later date than I anticipated, but as the saying goes...good things come to those who wait. I'm terribly excited and a little overwhelmed with everything there is to do.....making it necessary to spend some days simply playing in the rain. One of the things we have missed so much about OK (aside from the dry heat and glorious wind) are the rain-showers and thunderstorms. My baby had not experienced such a thunder shower before and though we probably shouldn't have been outside during one (bad mommy award is waiting for me) I couldn't resist letting him stomp around a little on the patio. Each time the thunder rolled my little sweetie-pie ran behind my back and hide his face. That boy is precious. Here are a few shots we captured from his first OK rain-shower....
