Tree Jewels

IMG_4942 site

The excessive snow and icy weather provided me with some nature eye candy yesterday. We were fortunate and did not lose power with Wednesday’s storm, so I was able to enjoy the scenery that followed. The next day (yesterday) the sun was shining bright and lit up the ice covered trees. They looked like beautiful, gaudy Christmas decorations.

Before kids, I would easily be outside for hours letting my camera soak up the unique scenery, but life is much different now. I could have wrapped my kids up and brought them outside, but my daughter has bronchitis, so she needed to stay inside. I did manage to snap a few photos in my backyard though.

Light and weather create these masterpieces before us. What we see each day is never consistent and never predictable, but when it happens I want to remember it.

Slow to Blogging

For anyone viewing this blog or my website, please forgive the lack of posts. Being a mommy of 2 very young children has kept me very busy. Hope to post more consistently someday soon.IMG_4022 site Happy Halloween! Looks like New Jersey will finally have one this year!

New ads :(

I’m not going to pay to remove the ads that appeared on my blog overnight, so looked past them if you can.

Back to Photo Blogging in 2013

IMG_8257 siteIt’s been about a year and a half since my last post. There has been so much going on in my life- not enough time for blogging. I still don’t have enough time. However, at the moment my 2 1/2 year old is keeping busy and my 7 1/2 month old is sleeping on me, so I wanted to carve out time for this post. Yes, that’s one of the things I’ve been up to. I have a son now, a little brother to L. This blog may end up turning into the ups and downs I face from day to day. Mostly ups, and the downs are more humorous than anything else, which I guess makes them ups…eventually. Parenting one energetic, whimsical little girl, who detests napping, seemed almost impossible. Adding another little human being to the mix was certainly a risk because I didn’t know how much more I could possibly do. He is an amazing gift to all of us. His personality harmonizes with ours so well. He is such a great balance. I don’t know what I did in life to deserve 2 such wonderful little human beings. I’m thankful every day. I look forward to sharing my experiences through photographs and blurbs once again.

One Year Already Gone By

She turned one already.  As much as I think time has flown by, I can’t believe she’s only existed for a year.  What an impact she’s made on my life and will make on the world.

Back to the Mia Farrow Haircut

I had to cut it.  She sweats so much!  I think it makes her look sassy.

Website is Live

My site is live now.  So much more I need to do with it, but the foundation is there and that was the biggest hurdle.  Check it out:  www.mandyberryphotography.com.

I couldn’t post this without a photo.  Irrelevant, but something I captured today- her new sandals- SIZE 2.  The shoebox is so small- just enough to hold 4 small cupcakes or two tiny shoes 🙂

First Time Exploring a Garden

The weather called for rain yesterday, but instead brought beautiful light.  It was a magnificent day that gave my daughter a chance to explore her auntie’s gardens. She touched her first rose, lavender, and pine needles…AND she ate her first mulberries.

Website Coming Soon…

I’ve been working on my website and hope to launch it soon.

In the meantime, here are some cute photos of my daughter stalking my cat…

This photo's quality isn't the best, but really tells the story of how much she goes after him. RUN, Pooh, RUUUN!
