Quote of the day:

"Each photograph is a story captured in a single moment"

Author: M.Lopez


Photography is capturing the extraordinary meaning in each ordinary moment, and weaving these strands together to tell a story – your story - to hold, to share, to remember.

It happens in a blink...

Teach me to number my days
And count every moment before it slips away
Taking all the colors before they fade to gray
I don't want to miss even just a second more of this

It happens in a blink
It happens in a flash
It happens in the time it takes to look back
I try to hold on tight, but there's no stopping time
What is it I've done with my life
It happens in a blink

When it's all said and done
No one remembers how far we have run
The only thing that matters is how we have loved
I don't want to miss even just a second more of this

It happens in a blink
it happens in a flash
it happens in the time it takes to look back
I try to hold on tight but there's no stopping time
What is it I've done with my life
It happens in a blink

Slow down, slow down
Before today becomes our yesterday
Slow down, slow down
Before you turn around and it's too late

It happens in a blink
it happens in a flash
it happens in the time it takes to look back
I try to hold on tight but there's no stopping time
What is it I've done with my life
It happens in a blink



Those are lyrics to a new song that is coming on the radio station I listen to.. and I love love love it. Its so true.. life is passing by so quickly. I know I've said it before.. but seriously it feels just like yesterday I had Kailey-Trey & Addi. I blinked and now they are 10-6 and 1. Where does time go? Why wont it slow down? I just love them- every second of them. I dont want to let it pass without savoring every moment... treasuring every second of... them.

This is the same car Trey used to ride in, and we introduced it to Addison. We saved it all this time... I guess I just couldnt part with it b/c of his attachment to it as a baby. Seems like only yesterday I took Trey outside to play in his little car... and now its Addi's turn. :)

Precious! I've been hearing that song too, and it really strikes a chord with me, too, because tomorrow is my "baby's" last day of preschool. How can he be almost 5 years old? I just can't believe how quickly the time passes.

We used to have one of those little cars too. All the kids loved it!
