How Shall I Ever Choose...

My friend Corey recently took some pics of Walker in downtown Durham. It was a hot an sticky day, but we had a blast. It was the first professional photo session Walker had experienced since he was three. You'd think he'd be used to having a camera in his face with me as his mom, but it took him a little while to come out of his shell and open up. I was worried that Corey wasn't getting any shots because he wouldn't look at the camera, but I should have known with her talent, she'd get the shot. In fact, she got so many great shots, I don't know how I'll pick!

She's met Walker before, but never spent an extensive amount of time with him, but her description on her blog post about the session nailed him "...super super spunky, have a million faces and love to laugh. Wendy, her husband Mike, and I took Walker downtown to get some shots.  Her goal was some fun photos of him and boy did we have fun.  This guy is full of vim and vigor.  I’ll save my favorite for last – his “beggin’ face!”

This is Walker's begging face. And in his words, "If you beg, you can get anything you want." That especially
works well with Nana and he knows it!

If you're in the Durham/Chapel Hill area and looking for a great photographer, check out Corey Williams - she is amazingly talented!


  1. Beautiful images! I just recently did the same with my 9 year old son at a tobacco field in Wendell. My son was not thrilled at first, as many of the first shots are are him with tears streaming down his face but eventually he warmed up & we got some great shots that I will treasure. These photos are priceless in a mommys eye!


  2. Great pictures! I love the 3rd one!

  3. These pictures turned out just wonderful. The 3rd photo is by far my favorite!

  4. I like the black and white pic.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
