Big Change for the Blog!

Hi friends!

So, I sat down (a week late!) to write a 10 Month Time Capsule for our sweet little Hudson and found out to my dismay that I had RUN OUT OF ROOM for more photos.  LOL!!!!  So, I could have changed plans to include more storage, but after some thought I decided that it was a sign from the universe that I should do something that I have been thinking about doing for some time…which is to house my professional photography blog and my personal blogs together on my business website.  For sanity sake and also for technical reasons, I prefer the platform that I use with my business website and decided to take the leap to solely write there from here on out.  I imported this entire blog (Our Sunshine Angel) and put a link to it in the footer of my photography website.  I need to do a little work to make it more navigable and do some re-linking, but I’m happy to have my blogs all under one roof.

One thing I struggled with though is what to do with this website that has been the home to my most personal struggles and triumphs over the last six years.  After some thought, I decided to leave it here for now (the url will change slightly in May to and that I will try to remember to come over here to link things from time to time since so many of my friends and family have signed up for email updates from this page.  I also want it to be here for anyone who is currently struggling with a diagnosis of neonatal Marfan syndrome or the loss of a child.  Every year, without fail, I receive several heartbreaking emails from around the world from someone who has found themselves in a similar circumstance and it truly helps to know that you are not alone.  If you are here for this reason and are seeing this post, please do not hesitate to reach out!  I consider it the greatest honor and a gift from Callie to be able to be there for you if you need someone to listen.  I have “met” some great friends, fellow moms, pastors, and even a children’s book author through this blog and I cannot even think of closing down this site for this reason.

One day (not that far away!), I will have to closely go through all of these posts and think very hard about whether to leave them open to public view.  It is a very different world than the one I grew up in and I know that our kids will one day take to a keyboard and Google their own names…or maybe a friend will…and I have to decide what kinds of things they will be mature enough to read about themselves and my viewpoint as a mother.  I’ll have to cross that bridge sometime, but thankfully, today is not that day.
