30 Day Blog Journal - Day 7-8-9-10-11

So...since I have been seriously slacking on my 30 Day Blog Journal, I am going to combine days 7-11.  Normally that would sound like a lot, but each day is a photo, so it's not going to be nearly as much as it sounds! :)

Day 7 - A photo that makes you happy!
This is a picture of my son when he was just a baby :) I fell in love the moment I saw him, and this is my favorite picture EVER of him. It just makes me smile every time I look at it! Isn't he precious? :)

Day 8 - A photo that makes you angry/sad...
I can honestly barely look at this picture without feeling just completely and utterly sick to my stomach. This is why I could NEVER live in Colorado, though it is beautiful there and I love the scenery. This is a picture of a Pit Bull slaughter that they had in Denver...the killed dogs just for resembling Pit Bulls. Pit bulls and pit bull mixes have been completely banned from the entire state of Denver. And I just don't think it's fair, and honestly, it infuriates me. Punish the stupid, irresponsible owners...not the breed.  You can expect a future post regarding my feelings on Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) in a future post....I can assure you.  The idea of something like this happening to any dog, especially the breed that has stolen my heart...absolutely breaks my heart.

Day 9 - A photo you took!
I just love this photo...see that little girl in the middle smiling so big? I got to see her beautiful face almost every day for about a week when I was in Africa. She was ALWAYS smiling. She had the sweetest spirit about her...she was probably 5-6 years old, and was constantly caring for her two younger siblings. Literally, carrying them around and everything, as if she was their mother. To have such a hard life, but such a wonderful joy about was just incredible to be blessed with the opportunity to see her those few days!

Day 10 - A photo of you more than 10 years ago
This is my 4th grade school picture, so I would've been about 9 years old. I don't know which is the best (most dreadful) part....the giant glasses? The crazy hair/huge bangs? The flowery dress? The missing/crooked teeth? haha...My how far we've come! ;)

Day 11 - A photo of you recently!
This picture was taken around Halloween 2010. I told you, we've come a long way! ha! But I think the huge smile might have had something to do with the cute boy standing next to me ;) (notice the eyebrow/cheek/forehead in the picture with me...haha)

Well, that's it for now! Stay tuned for Day 12 - Things I am OCD about!


  1. WOW your son has really grown, I forgot he was that small once. But really adorable.

  2. denver is not a state . denver is a city .

    1. You are correct. I made a typo. But to correct it, it is my understanding that Pit Bulls have been banned from the all over the state of Colorado, not just the city of Denver.
