Preview: My very first portraiture photo shoot

Hey y'all! I needed a place to quickly post these samples for my anxious subjects. :-) We had so much fun doing this shoot... as a little shout out for my small photography business, if you need family, individual, engagement, senior, (etc) pictures, I'm your girl. Shoot me an email and we'll get things rollin'! :-)

Without further adieu.... My little sister Jessica, and her beautiful friends. Here's to friendship!

Time to Breathe

Hello, world. Yes... it's been a while, and I realize I've been a stranger. Life has settled down since the holidays and since I'm no longer at school, so there is plenty of time to blog. :-) Not to mention, I didn't even want to face my blog, because my last attempt at blog design did NOT turn out well- if you noticed, my blog was gross for a while. All clean now though!


We spent the holidays on the East coast- Boston to be exact, with a few days in frigid New York City at the end. I really had such a great time with my family! The Sorensens are such a great bunch... I'm happy and honored to be theirs. I think my absolute favorite part of the trip was being with my sweet neice, Ava, and nephews Ezra, Max, and Mark. I hardly ever get to see those sweet kids. I miss them! And.. their parents are okay too. ;-)

Since our trip to Boston, Scotty has been crazy busy with school (17 credits!!), and I have started working full time. Scott is doing great so far... I'm really really proud of him for his dedication in hitting school so hard this semester. Once this semester is through, he'll be able to walk in Graduation in April, then finish a couple of classes afterwords. Hooray for education!

Work is going well for me- Still at the Center for Change, a facility for the treatment of eating disorders. I really feel like it's more than just a receptionist position... I feel like I'm part of something much bigger. Let me explain. My bluegrass band had the privilege of performing for the girls back before Christmas, and ever since, I've been overwhelmed at the way my life has been blessed by these beautiful women. I have enjoyed bringing a smile to their faces through music, and in return, their smiles have brightened my days as well.

So that's where we are! Not much has changed; we are still happy and healthy as ever. :-)

Can I just tell you how much I love my family? We've been up here at my in-laws' for General Conference weekend, and I truly am so grateful to be a part of this family.

I also feel honored to be a part of the family I was born into. Due to the passing of my beloved Grandma Tingey, I've been reminded this weekend of how much I love and adore each of them. It's interesting to me how life events like this tend to bring everyone closer together and remind us how fragile life is... and how we need to cherish one another. I feel the need to express my love to my family and close friends. I feel the need to express my gratitude for the simple things in life I tend to take advantage of... my next few posts will be full of the things I love. :-)

Love y'all! Until next time...

September?? What the....

I am in absolute denial that it's September already. This year has flown past me so fast, I can't believe it! I just need to get with the program, I guess. Just take it as it comes- fast, as it is. :-)

Things are going great here in the Sorensen household... We have both started a new semester of school this past week. Scott is an Economics major (Business minor) at BYU, and we are so extremely happy that he will be graduating in the Spring!! We are so excited for what direction life will take us once he's graduated. We hope to get him a job somewhere on the East coast and live on the "wild side" for a while. ;-) (Out of our comfort zones)

I am at UVU studying Behavioral Science... and once this semester is over and I pass all of my classes (fingers crossed, hehe) I'll graduate with an Associates Degree. It's no bachelors, but at least it's somethin'! The plan is to graduate with an Associates, then work to put Scotty through school. Once he's done, I'll go back. What's nice about that is that no matter where I transfer to, they'll honor my degree and I can just get crackin' on my major classes and not have to worry about transferring individual credits- not having to worry about taking classes I've already completed and paid for in order to satisfy another University's requirements. So! That's our plan for the next year or so. 

Until I blog again.... Adios, amigos!

Hello, world!!

The past year has been a good one! I apologize to my frustrated readers who wished I would have blogged.... but- I'm back! I have a goal to write once a week... Don't laugh, it WILL happen! :-)

I know this poem was pushing it, but it's been a lazy Sunday and I thought this would "spice" things up a bit.

Hello world, 
It's been so long
Since I've posted
on this, our neglected blog.
So much has happened,
I'm dying to share!
So here's a brief recap,
of this past year's affairs:

August 2008: I had a wonderful birthday, as you have seen
September: School + work= no time to breathe

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday.. 21 years old! I don't think I've ever had a birthday quite like this one already, and it's only 10:00 in the morning. :-)

It's just been really quiet around here this morning. I've had a lot of time to think and reflect on my life so far. I know this seems cheesy and probably cliche, but I am so very thankful and happy to be here- meaning on this earth, living this life. I've been thinking about who brought me here.. My amazing Dad and my Angel Mother, who unfortunately can't physically be here with me to celebrate. And that's ok.. I am just thankful that my life has stemmed from two such incredible people. 

I've also been thinking about my sweet husband, who creates a life within my heart that is indescribable. Cheesy..... YES! Sincere? Absolutely. Scotty- Thank you for allowing me to be yours! 

Anyhow, I'm sorry if this post is too sappy for all of your liking(s)... :-) but I mean it. I am thankful to be here, celebrating my 21st birthday. 

Love to all of you!

Wow, Wow, WOW!

I should be shunned by the blogging community. Has it REALLY been this long since I blogged last? Holy smokes. Time does fly! That's probably all I talk about on here, is how fast time goes. I was talking to Scotty yesterday about how I can't believe it's AUGUST already. So much happens in a year. It's kind of fun to look back to a year ago and compare where we are now.. let's see. Last year at this time, Scotty and I started talking again and realized we couldn't live without each other... haha. My car accident was almost a year ago.. insane. ANYWAYS! Enough reminiscing.. 

We have been so super busy lately! We bought our new town home (LOVE IT!!!)  in Pleasant Grove. We are seriously loving it here! We've had a blast decorating and getting settled. Things are actually starting to come together! I'm pretty pumped about that. There are still a few lingering boxes in the office and guest room, but other than that, we're pretty well set. It feels so great to be in our own place to call home. We're guessing we'll probably be here in Utah for a good 5 more years. Heck! We could have a kid by then! Or two. haha! Back to the subject at hand, our home... haha, I will post pictures soon. It's super cute!

I think this is all I have time for today, folks, but stay tuned for pictures of our lovely abode, and a giant post about our SWEET trip to Lake Tahoe, CA!!!

Until next time... Sorensen's OUT! :-)
