This is my brand new blog. Focusing on my family, my faith and my photography. I’ve had another blog for 3 years but for a variety of reasons I decided to shut the old one down and start fresh.
Here’s to taking chances.
Following are tidbits about who I am. It’s pretty much a copy and paste of my ‘about me’ profile. But, this way, if you don’t feel like clicking on anything we’ve still been formally introduced.
So….Hello! My name is Teresa and I am a Wife, Mother, Nana, Sister & Friend.
I have a big family whom I adore. And our ‘village’ works hard to support one another.
I am Catholic, I love Jesus and I love my faith.
I am pro-life and pray that the world will have a conversion of heart and come to believe that once conceived all lives matter.
The cast of characters in my life include but are in no way limited to…
My husband: Ronald
My Kids: Krista and husband Leslie, Joshua and wife Emma, Patrick, Benjamin (Ben)
My Grandkids: Charlie, Caleb, Claire, Kolbe, Gianna and Thérèse
I am an amateur photographer learning my way around a camera. I take lots and lots and lots of pictures – especially of my family. I am looking forward to sharing them on this blog.
Thérèse just turned one and I had so much fun during our photo shoot.
The ‘official’ one year portrait.
I am an 8 year breast cancer survivor
I love to eat and I love glasses of wine, vodka & tonics and green tea; especially when it is shared with family and/or friends.
I am a 50-something woman who has lost 50+ pounds from my heaviest weight. I’m keeping it off with a combination of (trying) to eat right, running, strength training and boxing/kickboxing.
I have a lot of days where I feel like I’m messing up life and not getting anything right. But, then I try to remember I am a child of God and immensely loved by Him. When I am able to do that it is easier to pick myself back up and try again.
I hope you enjoy this journey with me. Thanks for checking in and taking the time to read.
