A Post About Spring

I absolutely LOVE spring, especially this spring.  We have been having unusually warm weather for Utah, and I can’t get enough.  I think it has trickled down into every aspect of my life.  I have been doing so much, and feeling so good about it, I LOVE it.  I tell you spring is in the air. ;)

Spring (/sprɪŋ/ spring) is one of the four temperate seasons, the transition time between winter and summer. Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, renewal and regrowth.

Most of my clients find me through facebook.  I have never officially advertised, my business thrives solely by word of mouth, the way I prefer it.  So I have been terrible about updating on here.  I promise to do better.  It is so nice to come here and have a place to scroll through my journey.  I started out wanting to take better pictures of my kids, from that it has grown, and grown.  I appreciate each and every one of you.  It has been an awesome roller coaster, ups, downs, really high ups, and moments where you want to close your eyes, or cry, or both.  I think I can finally say that I have found myself.  I feel comfortable in my own skin.  I can do what I can do. Ha ha.  I was reading a book recently and it said you can’t be a so and so, you can only be you.  STOP comparing yourselves to others.  So, I am a Kristi….  Who knows what that is, but everyday I come closer to learning. 

One thing that I think I finally came to understand is that whether it is warranted or not, being rude never helps anyone.  NEVER.  If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all, this benefits you as well.  I have never regretted giving a compliment, and never slept well after saying something unkind.


Life is short, days are long.  Sometimes (while I’m driving especially) I think about my little boys, and how quickly it is passing.  I know I worry far to much about the small stuff, laundry will be there tomorrow, my kids won’t.  I hope that this will sink in for me sooner than later.


I think the last thing that I want to share, because I know you are waiting on pins and needles to hear what Kristi has finally learned.  (I am a slow learner, especially when it comes to life’s lessons.)  Is that I don’t understand anything.  Just when it comes to the point where I think I understand, I learn to see a whole new way of looking at it.  I think when I die someday I will probably laugh at all of my mishaps…  All of the times I tripped over pebbles in the road that I once thought were mountains.  How simple are the mole hills that I make into mountains.  My new goal that I hope one day (probably in another 90 years, because like I said before, I am a slow learner) is, to be able to love everyone (including myself).  True, not fake, Christ like love.  I think once I can truly learn that, all the other problems and cares will disappear. 

I will leave it at that, lol, and a few more pictures to show you what I have been up to over the past couple of weeks.

Kristi!! I haven't been to your blog in months. It's been a year since I updated my own personal blog. :/ Just can never get in the mood to write down my thought or log my life.

These portraits are just amazing! I am sorry I have missed so much!
