you're nice to most people. you like your dad a lot, but i think you like grandpa more. probably because he lets you drink dr. pepper.
sometimes you can be a little sassy, but it's usually funny, so we forgive you. except that one time i was trying to change your diaper and you were being a little stinker (literally). trust me liz, neither of us wanted to be there.
sometimes you get really confused. like you'll kiss my feet because i tell you thank you and you think it makes me happy. or you think car keys are q-tips and try to clean your ears with them. it's funny.
pretty much, we think you're the coolest.
love you lots girlfriend girlfriend,

oh how neglected you have been.
remember when we first met? i was in 6th grade and i wanted to document my first trip to disneyland. wasn’t that album horrible? now that i think about it, it was probably pretty good for a 12-year-old. i don’t even think i have it anymore.
we went on a break for a little while, then rekindled our relationship when my mom bought us all those stamps. why did she do that anyway? we should ask her. anyway, i actually think i spent more time that year making cards than with you, but hey, it’s all the name of paper crafts.
hey, scrapbooking, remember that time we didn’t sleep for two days straight so i could make enough pages i liked to send into that contest? that was actually a lot of fun, even though we didn’t win anything.
i’m sorry for this hiatus in our relationship. i suppose sometimes i just feel like the events in my life right now aren’t scrapbook-worthy. but i have a feeling that in a few years i might look back and wish that you and i had spent more time together.
so what do you say? date night this week?
p.s. here are some memories of our happier times.

and sorry about the serious fashion mishap which everyone keeps making fun of... including me, right now.
maybe you could call sarah palin for some advice.
better luck next time,

in a photo session?
i haven't decided if photography is something i am planning on doing professionally, but it is something that i am loving right now. so much, in fact, that i'm even considering applying to the photography program when i go back to BYU, just so i can keep learning.
i originally thought that having a nice camera and knowing how to use it would be something i would really value, especially once i have kids of my own. however, recently i have had a few people ask how much i "charge" and i was a little thrown off thinking that people think my pictures are nice enough to pay for them. at first, i shyed away from the idea, thinking that i had so much to learn before i could even consider charging for pictures, but i'm beginning to feel like it would be a really good opportunity for me to gain some experience and see if this is something i would be interested in pursuing, while offering families inexpensive photos at the same time.
so here it is:
- a 1-2 hour photo session at the location of your choice (preferably close)
- along with 30-50 EDITED photos from the session - yours to keep!
- at a price that you think is reasonable
it will hopefully only be a few weeks before my camera is back in action, so the pictures would be ready just in time for christmas! feel free to leave a comment or send me an e-mail(email@example.com) if you're at all interested, have any questions, or would like to tell me that i'm ridiculous.. any feedback is good feedback! :)
