Today is the last day of 2011. This was a pretty crazy year for me filled with a lot of ups and downs. I lost my grandfather. My baby boy turned 2. I became a mommy again. I decided to pursue my passion for photography. My nana, one of the most important people in my life, suffered a massive heart attack and almost didn’t make it. 2011 helped me realize how much I have to be thankful for and to never take anything for granted.
I’m happy to report that my nana is FINALLY home again. And to top it all off, this morning my babies woke me up by making each other giggle (usually, they wake me up by screaming at me for food). Tonight, I am making a massive feast and as soon as we put the babies down for the night, the husband and I are going to play SWTOR ALL NIGHT. Maybe. (I doubt I will make it passed 10:30). Even though there have been many hardships, this year is ending on a great note!
And now, my photo shoot with Stella! This little cutie pie is turning one pretty soon! Stella was such a trooper during this shoot. Not only was this her first time getting her pictures taken, but she was a bit sick, too!
This was the first time I have ever done a “smash the cake” session. Surprisingly, Stella wasn’t really that impressed with the cake! What a good girl, right?
I hope you all have a great, SAFE night! Don’t forget to eat your 12 grapes. According to my Lola, that will bring you good luck for 2012!
