Tracey Ann -- Six Month Pictures

Our precious baby, Tracey Ann turns six months of age tomorrow -- which is NUTS!

All the cliches are true -- we can't remember life before her, but it feels like just yesterday that we brought her home.

We were incredibly fortunate to have some family pictures taken out at the Grand Haven pier on the shores of Lake Michigan.  These were so special to Chris and me because we were married in West Michigan and we had some wedding pictures taken on the shores of Lake Michigan.

Here are some of our favorite six month pictures:

Feel Beautiful

There is a thread circulating through facebook of "post five pictures that make you feel beautiful."

I started by compiling about a dozen pictures from over the years where I felt most beautiful... then I created a few collages and spend some time (probably way too much time) actually choosing which collage, and the pictures therein, made me feel the most beautiful.

It was an interesting project for me... I was able to pinpoint the several years when I felt the most beautiful, and then try to determine why that was, and what I could do to try to regain those feelings.

There are people who make me feel beautiful -- my wonderful husband, for one... but I hope to begin implementing some steps in my life to get back to a place where I, myself, feel more beautiful on a regular basis.

Here was the winning collage:

And here was the collection of pictures that made me feel beautiful.
