So this week we get to do photo art again. OH how I love Photo Art!!!! I chose my favorite CD Pink’s missundaztood album. I love every song she has written and her “go to hell” attitude. So she was my choice. I chose my daughter Baby Girl to help me with this one because she is such a strong young lady with that same attitude.

Here is the original:

This week we have to take a picture of something that reminds us of the future.  There are a few things that remind me of the future.

Ms. Artistic, Baby Girl, and Mr. Athletic

Ms. Artistic, Baby Girl, and Mr. Athletic

My kids remind me daily of the future. They are growing and every day I learn something new from them. They anticipate graduating Middle School, going into High School, graduating Elementary School, going to college, proms, first kisses, a million different things. Each child is unique and without them I wouldn’t have nearly as bright a future as usual.

The Cat Juggler

I look forward to growing old with this man. He gets grumpier and grumblier the older he gets, but he always has love for me. I have loved watching his hair turn gray in his early 30’s (HAHA). Every morning I get to see his smile is a good day for me. He is my future.

My sister

Even though she is pregnant with my niece in this picture, her pregnant belly is a very clear reminder of the future. I am so excited that she is carrying another little niece or nephew and that child is growing within her. That baby and her other little babies are a part of my future. I can’t wait!!!

The future here is so bright I gotta wear shades.

This week I came down with a nasty cold and so I haven’t felt up to posting until today. I chose Heritage because I am considered full Dutch and I am proud of being all dutch. I was born in America, so were my parents, but when you go back on every side, One of my relatives came off a boat from Holland. My children’s father has the same type of Heritage so my own children are also full dutch despite being born in America which is extremely rare in today’s society.

Here is some things that remind me of where I have come from:

Tulips!!! Who doesnt think Dutch when they see Tulips?

Friday 1st May: Tall T’s choice: Future (something that you look forward to in the future, or something that reminds you of the future)

Friday 8th May: Author’s choice: CD/DVD/Album cover (now this one is a bit of a challenge! Choose your favourite CD or DVD or Album cover and reproduce your own photographic representation of it, using your family or yourself as models. You can use any gadgets you want. Have a bit of fun – it’s tongue in cheek so accurate representations aren’t as important as a fun image). Make sure you include a picture of your chosen cover so we can see what you were reproducing! (you may be able to copy one off the Internet)

When I first moved back to Virginia I was running from an abusive marriage. You can imagine my hesitancy when I ran into my ex boyfriend from high school and he was all about having a relationship.

I knew I wanted to be with this wonderful man, but I was also scared out of my mind. He had thrown away my heart without a second thought (I thought) nearly ten years before, sending me into the arms of someone who very literally nearly killed me. I was scared that I would get super invested in a new relationship just to be dumped again by him.

He asked me to marry him in February, and I gladly accepted. I just was scared of his lack of commitment. Easter was a special holiday for him, filled with sacred religious and pagan tradition. This day marked a new beginning, a fresh start, a new time for all of us.

He said he would marry me on Easter. I thought he was crazy, there was no way we could throw a wedding together in a matter of about two weeks, and I was still freaking out in my own little mind. He told me it would be secret, just the two of us, and to wait and see what he had planned.

We made the expected appearence at his parents house that day, and I was nearly sick with anticipation. The kids father picked them up to spend Easter with them, and then it was just the two of us.

He took me to a little cemetary in the middle of a park. We were married in our hearts with just nature and the souls around us as our witness. That was six years ago. Now, every Easter, regardless of the day we celebrate our “wedding” anniversary.

We were married before our families in September that same year, but Easter always reminds me of him.

Happy Anniversary Cat Juggler! I love you more now than I did then. Thanks for calming my fears and being the love of my life.

Well today I am pretty excited because I have been working on something since September. I have been taking photos of the trees at the bottom of our hill behind our home to document the seasons and how the trees have changed.

I used photo shop to make a mini collage. I did it two different ways which do you like best?

In both I am missing spring because it hasn’t happened yet since we moved in.

Today’s Photo Friday entry is entitled: Unlucky

Well, I am going to assume that this topic was suggested because of today’s date, Friday the 13th.  Normally these are very lucky days for me. Not today!!!

On Wednesday we were in the 70’s but when I woke up today, there was snow falling everywhere, unexpected.  I like snow, so that wasn’t a bad thing, just unusual.

While I was getting dressed I discovered that my favorite pair of jeans was missing and the other pair was in the wash on Friday Jean day. So I had to wear a pair of Dockers instead.

Soon after I  had my breakfast, and was rushing out the door. I stopped in the bathroom to discover I had spilled strawberry jelly all over the crotch area of my pants. THAT didn’t lok very pretty. I was able to wash away most of it without it staining the pants so I left home with my crotch looking wet…

Then I stopped to get gas. Luckily I have an incredibly wonderful husband who got up early and followed me to the gas station so I wouldn’t have to get out of the car with my bum foot. He is so sweet and thoughtful that way. When he was done pumping my gas my car didn’t start because the battery was dead. I am glad he was there because he was able to give me a jump without too much problems and I got to the lot on time after all.

Things have been ok since then, knock on wood. I have to say I am avoiding ladders and black cats though!

 

On to my photos, here are some photos we took in the snow last week. They are of the kids wiping out on the hill:
