Monday Moments Of Me #256

It had been about 1 year!

Yes, 1 year since I had been camping....ok glamping now that I have an awesome travel trailer.

It was and I did not care that it was going to be in the high 80's......

It is just what I needed. Beautiful views. Naps. Walks. No emails. No work. Just chilling with the furry critters....KitKat and Snickers. Perfection!

Now I am back and recharged! Nature is miraculous.

Well Hello April 2023!

This year is flying by! The weather has been crazy too....rain. heat...snow close to home....all the things!

March 17 St. Patrick's Day was always special in our house when I was a kid growing up...

My brothers name is Patrick so naturally this was a bonus celebration day for him :)

My mom would make green breakfast and even have decorations out!

It has been 2 years and 3 months since he left this earth.... it still hurts.

My parents,  my Aunt who was in town and I went to visit Patrick at his gravesite this St. Patricks Day.

I often "see" and "feel" his presence while at work where we often worked together at weddings.

Snickers had a BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

She turned 1 year old this past week.

She got to celebrate by going to a concert in the park, lunch, pet store and several walks.


She's so cute though, she's worth it! It was the best day!

Although she no longer looks like a Snickers....more like a payday.....which is now her middle name hahaha ...... I still love her!

Day Of Content Creation

4 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Wedding Content Creator for Your Special Day

Are you in the process of planning your dream wedding day? If so, you're likely aware of the countless details that go into the process. From finding the perfect venue to selecting the right dress, the to-do list may seem never ending. But one thing you may not have considered is hiring a wedding content creator to document your special day on a mobile device. Here are five reasons why you should hire a wedding content creator, or as we call it; Cell-Omatic-Ography for the day of your wedding.

The Personal Touch of a Content Creator

A wedding content creator is a professional who specializes in creating content that records and preserves your most cherished memories of your wedding day. They are creative professionals who have the skills and experience to capture the emotions and beauty of your wedding. Content creators understand the importance of preserving your special day, and they have the talent and the eye to create content that will make you smile and cry with joy when you look back on all the memories captured.

Our wedding day content creators can help you tell the story of your best day ever. They provide you with a beautiful, timeless gallery of photos and videos that captures your most cherished moments and allows you to relive the joy of your special day for years to come. This content is delivered the same night as your wedding or event. Whether you want to create a short film of your wedding or a photo album, or a reel for instagram, a content creator can help get you all the images and videos you need to create a beautiful piece of content that is uniquely you.

The Value of Quality Content for Your Big Day

First, hiring a professional content creator can guarantee and ensure that your special day is documented in the best possible way. Imagine waking up next to you husband/wife and reaching for your phone to view photos and videos from the best day ever as you order room service!

Second, having a professional wedding content creator on hand will help you to capture those moments you may have otherwise missed. From getting ready to the first dance and beyond, your content creator will be there to capture every detail of your big day seamlessly working with your professional photographer/videographer. This relieves the pressure from your maid of honor from having her phone out all day. Let her and everybody be in the moment and enjoy themselves fully.

Finally, having a wedding content creator will help to keep the memories of your big day alive. With the images and videos captured by your content creator, you can look back on your special day over and over; even as soon as you get in your getaway car. You can also share these memories with family and friends, ensuring your wedding day is remembered for years to come.

A Personalized Experience

A personalized experience is essential when it comes to your wedding day. Hiring a wedding content creator is one way to ensure your day is documented in a way that will make it memorable for you. Why? A wedding content creator can provide a personalized experience that captures all the special moments, details, and emotions of your wedding day. After going over a questionnaire with you, the content creators will know exactly what you want and what is most important to you and what the main focus should be. They also help you and your guests be in the moment knowing that we are there capturing an unlimited amount of photos and videos; leaving you and guests no pressure to have their phones out.

Cost-Effective Investment

Hiring a wedding content creator is a wonderful and cost-effective investment that will help you preserve the memories of your special day. It is the new service you did not know you needed. A wedding content creator will capture all the best moments and behind the scenes happenings and help you tell your story. They will capture the details, the emotions, and the joy of your special day that you can revisit for years to come. With this content you can create social media posts with and create a gallery on your phone of your favorite moments to re-live on anniversaries, Valentines Day, birthdays etc.

Well, some days do not go as planned.

It was raining all day, I was doing errands getting ready for a long weekend of work...

I walk back to my car in the garage for the next set of errands and before I get in I hear a hissing......

$600 later and 2 new tires later. . . I was not happy.

BUT, I had a choice. I realized I always have a choice.

So, I changed my attitude and I CHOSE to be grateful this happened when I was close to home and had the time to deal with it and that my tire did not blow out on the freeway.

IT IS DECEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my favorite month of the year.

I visited Enchant at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale December 1 and I LOVED it!

So much fun seeing all the lights, going through the maze, getting a lemonade in a lit-up lightbulb cup, seeing the performers, sitting by the fire and taking too many photos!

I am so grateful for this year and all I have learned and to see what is in store for 2023!

It's the little things!

I love walking. I love the outdoors. I love animals.

Combine all those and I am happy as happy can be :)

My puppy (who is now 8 months) and I went for a walk at Riparian Preserve to scout locations for an upcoming family session.

We had a total blast and it was the small break in a busy week that I needed!

I was at the Scottsdale Quarter in Arizona for work and as I looked around the store Kittenish, I found a couple keychains that I just had to have!

This PINK sparkly cowboy hat is one of them! I am obsessed with it. Just looking at it makes me motivated to do more, be more and it makes me smile! I find it to be a fantastic investment in myself =)

I encourage you to do the same, find something that makes you smile just by looking at it and place it somewhere you see it when you wake up! It makes for a great way to start the day.

August Flew By!

Some great storms in this monsoon season and I loved all the rain.

I had 2 concerts to look forward to this month.

First was Lee Perreira at the Musical Instrument Museum.

-He was fantastic as always and put his whole heart into the performance as well as did the rest of his band!

Second was the Stadium Tour that had got rescheduled a few times over the past couple years.

It was great to finally be able to see all of these 4 play on the same stage at State Farm Stadium....

-Motley Crue

Highlight of my Summer of 2022

I got to visit Seattle!

My nephew was on a church Mission in the area and so my siblings and their families decided to surprise him as he got to come back home to AZ!

It was definitely a great trip.

We did all the touristy things and created so many memories!

Link to an Instagram Reel I made of the trip. . .

Monday Moments Of Me #246

I found a shirt in my closet.

It made me step back and take some deep breaths.

It even Made me cry.

Made me re-live all the good times I had with my Mixie Girl.

I still think about her daily, she was the absolute sweetest and best pup I could have asked for!

Monday Moments Of Me #245

Happy June!

I can not believe 2022 is already at its halfway mark!

After My Mixie Girl went to doggy heaven to run and be free of pain....the home was too quiet and too lonely. Something was missing and I could not take it.

So, KitKat (the cat) got a little sister named Snickers! It has been quite the adjustment for us all.

Snickers is a mini sheepadoodle and is the absolute cutest and sweetest puppy!

Mixie, my best 4 legged friend was set free on March 31, 2022.

I miss her every day. She had such a joyful and kind spirit that is greatly missed in the home.

She had an amazing life running through the sand at the dunes, camping, hiking, sleepovers at grandma and grandpa's house, going for multiple walks a day, cuddling with her kitty, going for car rides and playing tug of war, even visiting family in other states.

I truly am lucky to have had the best dog ever!memorial photo of paw print for 15 year old dog

Also, this wall in the Roosevelt Row area in Phoenix was way too cool! I was vibing with all the colors! See the eyeball in the cactus? That is your reminder this week that somewhere, somehow someone is watching over you and cheering you on and has your back!

Throwback Monday!

This is me and my elementary school and church friend!

We met up for lunch the other day after years of not seeing one another.

It was so good to catch up and hang out and reminisce for a bit.

When we were kids, this was our go to activity....recording sessions on our radio show.

Yes, we were the originators of podcasting. LOL

Any yes, I dug it out of a box in the garage and brought it to lunch!

What? Where has this year gone?!?!

Every day I find a reminder to slow down, enjoy each moment, and to live for that moment!

I hope you do the same!

This photo was from a recent morning walk. . .  where that reminder found me . . . 

I truly believe it was meant for me! 💓

I can not believe it is October 1, 2021!!!

Back at the End of August I was able to go to the Van Gogh Exhibit in Scottsdale!

I went with my parents which made it extra special! My dad and I planned it out and surprised my mom with tickets!

It was breathtaking and such a treat to learn more about Van Gogh. Spectacular how his art was displayed 'immersively' along with music.

I love making memories through experiences!

 Hello and Happy Monday September 6, 2021!!!

When I attended my last August Wedding of this year, the couple had these cards available for guests.

I have seen them before. Many times actually. That day though it hit me differently.

What a great idea these are! Whether the responses are comical or serious, sitting down and reading through them as a couple and especially seeing who wrote it to you...has got to bring the wedding day memories back in full force! Advice from your favorite people who love you and support you to read anytime you want is such a gift.

I hope I see more of these this coming wedding season!!!!!

 Second Chances

Years and years ago I tried the Barrio Queen Restaurant and for whatever reason I was not impressed and did not visit again until June 2021. I was hesitant and even resisted to trying it again when it was suggested. Good thing I believe in Second Chances 😉

My most recent visit has me wanting to go back on a weekly basis. Seriously so good! The meal I ordered is life changing!!!!!!!

"CHILES EN NOGADA  A roasted poblano pepper filled with chicken, apples, pears, dried apricots, golden raisins, walnuts, onions and garlic. Covered in a delicate almond cream sauce, finished with the colors of the Mexican flag: fresh cilantro, queso fresco, almond slices and pomegranate seeds. Served with chipotle mashed potatoes and calabacitas "

Next time you visit Barrio Queen let me know what you order and if you tried the Chiles En Nogada and love it as much as me?!

This lampshade pic was at the Tempe Marketplace location and I love the vibrant colors and overall uniqueness and even the choice of rope it is hung with :)

Elizabeth and Justin's Gilbert AZ Wedding

Elizabeth and Justin had an absolutely perfect wedding!

The weather was rain and wind and then sunshine off and on all day up until about 45 minutes before the ceremony where the rain and wind was gone and the rest of the evening was great!

It was always Elizabeth's dream to get married in her parents backyard surrounded by her and her fiancés closest friends and family. She got her dream!

It was truly a great day and I am so grateful to have been asked to be a part and capture all the memories!

Elizabeth and her family are long time family friends so naturally this day was extra special!!!
