Where has the summer gone?

I feel that the older I get the faster time goes by and none made that more apparent than looking at a calendar today and realizing that there is only a month left of summer! I have managed to take some much needed time off for me and spent a nice week and a half in Colorado seeing family and getting out of the Houston heat, yet I feel like I have accomplished nothing on my never-ending to-do list. I am lucky enough to make another trip to Colorado within the next couple of weeks to visit my very first nephew, Jack! I can’t wait to meet him and am more than excited to photograph him! Until then, here is one of his firsts!

A New Family Member

If you have ever met me or my husband you know immediately that we are dog lovers. Full-fledged canine addicts. Well, we recently got tired of seeing this very cute boxer-mix in the middle of the road so close to death with cars roaring past her. We decided to become foster parents. This was the easy decision! She (Carlota as my husband so cleverly calls her after finding her in a car lot,) took to us like white on rice. First night in the house snuggled up on the bed and hasn’t left since! Well, the moment of truth had come and we either needed to pull the trigger or allow her to go. We opted for the foster-fail plan and as of Tuesday, May 14th, Little Mamma is an official member of the pack! Welcome to the family baby girl!
