I have this sickness (well right now I have two, but I will share the fun one with you first) I love to collect chairs. I stop and pick up chairs if I see them on the side of the road and they look crafty to me. While driving home from my friend Sarah’s house (she shares my sickness) I saw this fun looking chair and I had to pick it up. Once morning time came, Doug spotted my new find in our backyard and was a little less thrilled with my new baby. I have about 5 or 6 chairs sitting in the yard waiting to be worked on 🙂 For now I will share this one. When I picked it up I noticed that it had white paint on the fabric…anyone know how to get paint off of fabric? Still, I painted the wooden part of the chair white and then distressed it.
The neighborhood kids played in our yard and when our adopted daughter (okay she is not really our adopted daughter, she just plays at our house all the time) saw me photographing the chair she asked me to take some pix of her. I put her in a dress I just made for Kimmie and took a few of her on my new chair. Isn’t she a cutie?
On to my second sickness….I had been coughing for a while and did not take it seriously. After weeks of coughing I went to the doctors and they said I have bronchitis, gave me some antibiotics and sent me on my way. I had to go back today for them to check and make sure my lungs were clear. She paused at my bottom left lung for a bit longer than normal and said it sounds like the start of pneumonia. Yikes! So now I am on another round of antibiotics and an inhaler. I am going to do my best to rest and take it easy. So now I am off to bed!!
Ryan – Mom am I lucky that I am the only one in our family with blonde hair? Me – yes I do think you are lucky! Do you like being a blondie? Ryan – yes I think blonde hair is cool.
I do love his blonde hair and I have often wondered over the past few years if his hair would turn brown? So far he is my blonde haired, tan skinned little man. I love him!
Tara and I laughed as I took these pictures on her front porch. We were answering the life long question from kids “Where do babies come from?” So here is the answer…”they are dropped off on the front porch!” She can tell her kids “See, mommy even has pictures to prove it”
Ella is just beautiful and looks so much like her two olders sisters and one older brother. She is a doll 🙂
I had such a great Mother’s Day! Doug took care of me all weekend. I shopped at Victoria Gardens on Saturday. Then on Sunday we went to church, california rolls for lunch, then to see the grandmas and Doug even watched the movie Bride Wars with me at night. What a great guy! I am so blessed to have two beautiful and healthy children, a great husband and wonderful parents. I hope all the moms had a great day!
Now you can see what happens when you set the camera on self timer in SanSai 🙂
Well this is a long time coming for me. I have been wanting, wishing, hoping for a new blog for a long time now…and it is finally here! I think for me this is well worth the wait. A couple of months back I started to really evaluate my business. I think that always happens at the start of a new year and I realized that I wanted to make some changes. The first major change is a name change. When I (or we) started this biz I was cautious about using my name, Cheryl Yost (and yes many of you know me a Cherie 🙂 ) because I felt like everyone would assume that all of the art work is mine and that Doug would not get the credit due to him. So just to clear things up…Doug (my wonderful husband) does shoot with me and he is great! For the most part though, this business is my baby and I am the primary photographer. So a name change has happened! From now on I will be using www.cherylyost.com and this blog. I am so excited to be able to get back in the swing of blogging since I have neglected my old blogspot blog for some time now. Check back often. I have been saving some of my favorite shoots to share here, so I have plenty to blog!
Just in case you want to go back to the old blog here it is www.inspiredreflectionsphotography.blogspot.com
