December Daily

The Polar Express experience I hope he always remembers.

These are my fave images from the totally is a glimpse at my mom and son's relationship.

All of these were shot with only available light (which was next to none), no flash, ISO 1600 and SLOW shutter speeds. I really wanted to see if I was capable of getting meaningful images without using my flash...I think I succeeded. I wanted these to have an old film quality about them.

December Daily - Day 2

December Daily - Day 1

Can you believe it is already December?!?!?! Oh my goodness, I feel like it was just January and now here we are another year passed. I am so thankful for so many things that have happened this year and to say that I feel beyond blessed, well, that is the understatement of the year.

It's been so long that I've shared our every day life here. I miss that, do you? It has been so busy around here between work, starting a photography business, Lawyer in school, etc. that finding time to do it all has been few and far between.

So I'm doing this thing called the December Daily...I'll post every day things from our day each day (hopefully). So here is a Day one post from yesterday (I am just now getting to post it today!)...and I'll have Day 2 up next!

My NEW Photography Blog!

To those that don't know, I'm officially in business with photography! I quietly "opened shop" about a month ago to get all the behind-the-scenes "stuff" done and now I'm getting my name out there!

I have shared my photo blog here but now I have an "official" Amii Wroblewski Photography Blog at! It is still a work in progress but I'm over the moon with being able to finally making a business out of something I truly enjoy.

Anyhow, pop on over to my photography blog and leave me a message to let me know what you think! Oh and if you are local to me, please make sure to check out the "Casting Call" post and the "Contest" won't want to miss it!

Halloween and Christmas, all in one!

I totally forgot to post Halloween pics! Guess who Jason and I went as?

And I was so PROUD that Lawyer opted for a homemade mummy costume over a store-bought one! He was so cute and everyone commented on his costume!

And where does Christmas fit in? We got our tree put up last night! I love it!

All just a blur...

Do you find that you have periods of time throughout your year that all just seem like one big blur? I feel like that has been my life the past month or two...nothing that is bad, just memories, experiences, moments all globbed together in my head.

Some days I forget to enjoy those moments, no matter how big or small, and just live. Don't think, don't plan, don't stress...just soak up the moment. I felt this way the other day when I was outside with Lawyer. I looked up at the light in the trees and just saw how beautiful the glow of the light was in the gently swaying leaves. I looked to my left and felt content seeing Lawyer playing and singing happily while he dug tunnels and built mountains in his sand box. I saw an amber-hued leaf gracefully floating down from our large oak, to it's new place on the still-green grass. I knew at that moment that there was no other place I was to be at that moment and no other place that I would rather be.

My goal as we head into the holiday season is to stop and soak in each day. It's like I blinked and I went from having a tiny newborn to now a grown 5 year old boy and I just can't remember very much between those times. Don't think I'm being solemn or regretful, more like pensive and at peace.

I hope you are all enjoying your autumnal days and remember to squeeze your loved ones and tell them you love them. Enjoy!

5 Years in the Making

Last week, Jason and I celebrated 5 years of marriage. We've been together for 7 years and there hasn't been one day of regret on either side. In celebration of 5 years, I thought it would be fun to post some pictures from the beginning of us dating up until just a few weeks ago! Enjoy the walk through our history and please feel free to laugh at my hair in each and every one of them!

Thank you Jason for being the love of my life, for always supporting me, for lifting me up and for loving me even when I haven't brushed my teeth or washed my pits in two days! Here is too many more years together! I love you!

So much to share but not enough time to share it all!

Sorry for being MIA lately! There have been a ton of things that have been going on that I'm excited to talk about but am just not ready to yet (and no I am not pregnant!). Soon, very soon, I'll be ready to start moving forward with posting regularly but for now, this super-serious picture of Lawyer will have to suffice!

The Birthday Party

We opted for a very small birthday party for Lawyer...just my family. Lawyer talked and talked about his friends coming to his birthday party and where he would have it at but the school he goes to is not one where it's the kids in the neighborhood. Nothing wrong with that but it just means that you never get to know the parents since everyone is from all over the area (some several towns away).

I have to say that Lawyer is an extremely thoughtful present-opener. He really takes his time to look at and investigate each and every one of his presents instead of tearing into one package and immediately moving on. It makes present-opening that much special to watch.

Thank you to everyone that called him on his birthday. He enjoyed it every time I said "Lawyer, you have a phone call," and then I loved watching his face light up as the person(s) on the other end would sing "Happy Birthday" was truly priceless to watch. So thank you!

This child is truly a blessed child to have so many people think of him and love him. I could not be more proud to call him my son and the last 5 years have been filled with nothing but joy and blessings with having him in my life. Even at five years old, he is a magnet to others with his smile, humor and personality. It will be interesting to watch him as he grows up because I know that he is a natural-born leader.

Lawyer, I could not imagine you not being in my life. You have given me so much these past five years and I've grown in so many ways by having you in my life.

Each day is a present and a party with you, Lawyer.

Thank you for being such a respectful and polite little boy.

Thank you that you will do ANYTHING for a laugh, bringing laughter to others is one of your many gifts.

I hope you had a wonderful birthday, one that will be a memory of yours for years to come.

And I pray that you always keep your spunk and individuality because you are truly one of a kind.

I love you, sweet boy!
