What I think about...

...while doing the dishes

*It can be dangerous up in my head!
Hello friends. 
1st off, thank you for your visits and kind words during my absence. It's been a rough period & I'm  not so sure it's over yet, so this idea of the chess queen surprised me as it's actually the 1st burst of inspiration I've had in 3 weeks & yes it came while doing the dishes. Truth be told, I get a lot of ideas doing things totally unrelated to photography. This particular photo symbolizes the matriarch of our family which happens to be mom. She suddenly took ill & it literally knocked the life out of me. I would be here forever & a day trying to even come close to tell you what my mom means to me. 
I know it helps some of you to document life, the good & the bad, I tried but it was useless. I tend to retreat until I feel the time is right. Today happens to be that day. 
Happy Snapping
P.S. I am on's so much easier on some days...


  1. I am so sorry about your Mom. I do know it's important to retreat and live off line. I am doing it myself. Sometimes the focus has to change. I hope everything works out. (((hugs)))

  2. Hope things work out and I suspect everyone who follows along with your blog has also stepped away to deal with matters in-real-life and will not think poorly of you for doing so. This is a great photo.

  3. (I followed your link from Instagram and found you!)Our moms are so important to us; we really are knocked over when something happens to them. I hope your mom is doing better. And here's to finding inspiration whenever and wherever it strikes!

  4. I send positive thoughts your way every day ..... consider yourself hugged!

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I understand exactly how you're feeling. My mom has been sick for the past few months and my photography is all of non-existent. I just seem to have lost the desire right now. I know it will return one day when the time is right. I will put you and your mom into my prayers.


  6. Totally can relate Kelly...but it's my King, instead of my Queen. Either knocks your world out of axis. My thoughts are with ya, and I so enjoy your instagrams too. I'm just dipping my toe into that venue, but I can see where it is probably gonna take me :)

  7. So glad to see a post from you, but knew you were still holding your head above water because of your comments on my blog. Thanks for continuing to visit eventho you had burdens of your own to tend to. I continue to send good thoughts your way, and whatever is laying heavy on your heart, may it lighten soon. And yes, I do know how much your Mom means to you, I felt the same way about mine. I miss mine every single day.

  8. Awww, sweet thing. :(

    I am so sorry you hear about your mom being ill. It is difficult to even think about anything else during times like these - so we understand. It is, however, nice to see your post. That said, I will send healing thoughts and vibes your mama's way, and your way too, sweet girl.

    Big, warm, healing hug to you.


  9. You don't think of ME when doing the dishes? Waaah, I think of only you when I do them. Kidding aside,I know these have been trying times for you and I want you to know that I'm here for you . Love you always , your husband.

    1. Dear Anonymous...You are without a doubt the most amazing husband EVER! I'd be lost with out you...I lean on you way more than I have a right to....but that's where I love to be...xo

  10. I have been away from my favorite blogs and had no idea about your Mom - I'm so sorry but read in a more recent post that she seems to be doing better. Sending her prayers and a big hug!


Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the blogging world. Your comments always put a smile on my face. Hope to see you again real soon.
