where you go.

a little poster i'm working on for my house/shop.

my itunes has been playing a few songs from an
album featuring various christian artists called
 'music inspired by the story'(released in conjunction w a book series 'the story'). 
one of my favorites is sung by nichole nordeman & amy grant entitled "i'm with you(ruth & naomi)".

it's a song about ruth & naomi (a widow & her widowed daughter-in-law) and how they continue to be
each other's family even when they are
no longer tied to each other.

the chorus repeats:
"you & me
me & you
where you go
i'll go, too
i'm with you"

every time i hear it, it makes me think
of my husband and my promise to him,
to love & support him,
regardless of what comes our way.

telling your sailor that you'll follow
them wherever they go is pretty big in terms of

i can't wait to have it up on my wall.

if you want to hear the song,
you can check it out here.

sarah shah portraits.

remember this shot?

the whyte kids redeemed their free session a little
sooner than their mom had planned. :)

i had wanted to wait until justin was deployed and do
some fun shots for him.
however, sarah had posted photos of the valentine's mini shoot and i knew i'd kick myself if i didn't get in on it.

glad i did.

you can see more of their session here.

if you're looking for a local photographer,
be sure and check sarah at sarah shah portraits out.

we will definitely be visiting her again!

chili feed at the navy reserves this weekend.
i was there to mingle and introduce myself as the
new ombudsman.

weird not following my husband around.

however, i do enjoy having boys i don't know
hold the door open for me. :)
