Monday Moments Of Me #268

Wow! What a month. Both March and April have been busy and it was so nice to have a quick trip up North to some cooler weather, relax and see ZZ Top as well as Black Moods play at the Findlay Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, AZ. It was a quick trip but was very much needed; time with my husband and time to just getaway from the everyday hustle and bustle of being a business owner.

February 2024!

I love the month of February....why?  Why Not? It is best to love every month, week, day, hour and minute! Enjoy it all is my motto.

Because it is my anniversary month PLUS it is all about LOVE (Valentines Day) and all the PINK decor in the stores instantly puts a smile on my face.

Speaking of love and smiles on my face . . . Oh These Two!

They really are besties and it is so adorable to watch them run and play and even go on walks together, then once they are worn out they even take naps and give me the stare down if I get out the camera....hehe

Love my critters and my life :)

December 2023 was absolutely a blast!

I loved all the gatherings with friends and family (personally and professionally) and date nights doing all things Christmas! Driving through neighborhoods looking at lights, going to the Pratt Brothers Christmas at Rawhide, hot cocoa and early morning walks with my dog and cat!

Now on to 2024!!!

Crossing things off my bucket list feels so good! I went on a cruise into Canada, Maine and New York in August. Absolutely a blast! I highly recommend cruising, it was nice not having to make my own itinerary, entertainment and figuring out where to eat, I felt spoiled! 

Seeing so many iconic landmarks was breathtaking and learning of the history was incredible too!

Where to next?

I am thinking maybe a European Cruise. Wanna come?

Monday Moments Of Me #259

I got to get out of my normal day to day and head to Chester West Virginia Mid July for a week!

My favorite part about this trip is visiting a good friend and state hopping!

It was a fantastic trip filled with sightseeing, visiting and shopping!

Dined in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and even found a Costco to check out!

The bridge in Ashtabula Ohio was a first for me to see! Incredible watching it raise and boats come through and then it closing again. Such a darling city too.

Walnut Beach (Lake Erie) was breathtaking! Spent the day relaxing next to the waves getting plenty of vitamin D. 

Walking the cute and quaint streets in Chester West Virginia is always calming and peaceful for me. As well as seeing the barges on the Ohio River while visiting the Chester City Overlook on my morning walks!

Antique Shopping in East Liverpool Ohio was checked off my bucket list!

I can not wait for the next trip to see what is in store!

Life in Perspective, July 2023 Edition.

When up in the rafters doing some deep cleaning...15 or 20 feet from the ground...

While using balance alone... Life quickly flashes before your eyes...

All I could think about is that I should not have been climbing a ladder and walking on beams 15 or 20 feet above the floor ALONE with no-one there just in case something was to happen... Once I pushed past these thoughts and got to work...how satisfying it was to get the beams and rafters clean and to know I did this scared, I finished, I conquered! I did it.

How grateful I am for my health, my vision, my hearing, my balance, my work opportunities, my family, my pets, for music, for food, for sunlight, for pushing past fear, for EVERYTHING. 

We are all stronger than we think, I am a firm believer in this!

She originally did not have a middle name but I hereby declare she now does!

SNICKERS PAYDAY

I still love her to pieces and she is absolutely the most spoiled mini sheepadoodle you will ever meet :)

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 time.to.get.out 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.

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....

-Joan Jett and The Blackhearts

-Motley Crue

-Poison

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!

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!

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!
