Puttin' it out There!


So......I had my little boy close to three years ago now and I still have not returned to my 'normal' body.  I'm pretty sure at this point my 'normal' body is loooooong gone.  However, I can sometimes be a dreamer, so I think I'm willing to look for it a little longer.  I've given some half hearted attempts at getting fit again.  I'm not really out of shape, but I'm not fit either.  I weigh the same as I did before but I'm just a bit softer if you know what I mean, and I bet, every woman out there who has had a child, and probably a lot that haven't, will know what I'm talking about!  So, I'm puttin' it out there, that I'm going to try my darnedest to get fit again.  I have every intention of running the Cayman Islands Marathon this coming December.  Okay, let me rephrase, I will be running the HALF marathon of the Cayman Islands Marathon.  I don't think I have enough time to train for the whole shebang!  I will be posting updates to my facebook account about my progress.  If anyone else wants to come run it with me, let me know..........Lisa, are you listening? Wish me luck, because I think I'll need it!

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape architect...at least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
