We have our Facebook Winner!!

Boy that sure took a while, but I finally made the 100 fan mark on our Face book Page! Our winner was Valarie and she was referred by Tiffany. I have to tell you all that Tiffany was my biggest promoter. She was writing on her wall constantly about how many more fans I needed and encouraging all of her friends to become fans. She definitely deserved to win the referral part. Thanks for all your kind words Tiffany!!!

On Vacation

I'm headed off to Tahoe for a week with my family. After such an emotional day I'm glad we scheduled our family vacation for this week. It will get my mind off of missing my sister and I can spend quality time with my kids.

It just so happens that my daughter Adrianna also has a softball tournament this weekend in Tahoe so it really worked out to our advantage.

I'm going off the grid for a week. The only time I will pick up my camera is to take pictures of my family. I've promised everyone that I will not work, just spend time reading, playing games and relaxing with my honey and our kids.

But once I get back, watch out! Because I have a few neat projects that I'm working on. Wait to you see where Hope to Capture Photography is going!

My Sister

Well she finally left. About a year ago she said that she wanted to move to Chicago. She never really liked it here in Modesto, but being a single mother it was easier for her to be near family to help her with the kids. Now my nieces are older and they are ready for an adventure.

They have the same adventurous spirit as my sister Becky. I love them so much, but I will especially miss my sister. She has been a constant in my life. She is a constant pain in the @ss but more importantly she has been a constant best friend. She keeps me grounded, encourages me to follow my dreams, and always makes me laugh at myself. She is the one person who will always be honest with me and who I know will be on my side no matter what.

I am so proud of her. She is such a wonderful example to all of us. Becky is following her dreams and showing our girls how to follow theirs. Chicago is so lucky to have such a cool girl coming their way.
I will miss you sister. I cry just thinking of how much I will miss you. But remember how proud I am of you and how much I love you. You rock!

-Sister {i'm giving you a virtual hug right now}
