Photo(s) of the Day: Biggest Little Royals Fan Ever

This weekend we attended Baby K’s third Royals game! You may think I’m a huge baseball fan, but I admit that isn’t exactly true. I do enjoy baseball, but usually one Royals game a year is enough for me. We just happened to have the opportunity to go to three games this season – and we sure picked a great one for it! Baby K is obviously good luck – they won all three games we attended. And she’s on her way to being an even bigger fan, because her Uncle Matt spoiled her with some cute girly Royals onesies!

Photo of the Day: Day at the K

My husband, dad, and I had tickets to the Royals baseball game last Friday. You may have seen my grumblings about the snow, or if you live in the Midwest you were probably grumbling with me. The game was postponed and rescheduled for Monday at 1:10 p.m. Unfortunately my husband couldn’t go since he’s a teacher, but thanks to my accumulated personal days, I was able to go with my retired parents. For once, the weather was perfect. Despite the fact that we lost in the 11th inning to the White Sox, it was actually a really exciting game … for baseball. 🙂

Photographic Prints for Relay For Life

I’ve been team captain for our Relay For Life team for several years, so I’m constantly trying to come up with creative fundraisers. Last year I decided to try my hand at selling photographic prints, and I raised about $250 with that fundraiser. Not too bad! Naturally I want to beat that number this year. If you like my photography, please consider purchasing a photographic print. You can pick one of the Kansas City photos below, or you can pick any photo from my blog. Visit etsy.com to place an order. And if you don’t want a print but you still hate cancer, the American Cancer Society and I will happily accept donations to Relay For Life. Thank you for your continued support!

Project 52 Week 2: Modern Marvel

One of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to have a weekly date night with my husband. So after excellent food and drinks at Snow & Company, I shot some night photos of the new Kansas City modern marvel: the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. It just happened to be the coldest day of the year; with the wind whipping and snow just minutes from falling.

Days 296-298: Celebrating the best day ever

Yesterday Jerod and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. We also celebrated a little on Sunday … and on Saturday … but there’s no shame in celebrating the happiest day of your life! On Saturday we went to the Steamboat Arabia museum, the Blue Nile Ethiopian restaurant, and the Kansas City ballet. The highlight was the ballet at the beautiful new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. It’s an architectural masterpiece. On Sunday we did lots of packing and took a little time out to reminisce over our wedding photos. And yesterday after work, we went out to eat and to a movie. We also received a great surprise gift from my parents. I think celebrating anniversaries is even more fun than celebrating birthdays, because you get to share the joy with someone you love.

We plan to look at our wedding photos and video every year on our anniversary. I can never stop smiling as we reminisce.
