About Us

My photo
The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

Paradise in my backyard

This evening I went on a quick trip to the beach........in my head. I was relaxing in our lounge chair out back and trying to get a little bit of sun when I started to feel like I was in paradise. The wind blowing through the willow trees could have passed as palms trees. The sun was hot and our pond was bright blue(granted our neighbor just treated it but oh well). If I squinted my eyes to only see the water in our pond I could pass that off for at least a lake. It was wonderful to not have to go that far for paradise. The only thing missing was white sand and a fruity drink with an umbrella! Hey if you don't have your dreams, than you have nothing right? Even Cody was enjoying the relaxation.

Summer Storms

So believe it or not every once in a while I like to take a break away from being a Forensic Photographer and capture life. We had a storm front coming over our house tonight and it truley looked like the heavens above so I had to capture it. Eventhough I hate storms they are amazing to watch. I hope these photos make you feel as peaceful as they made me.

Nashville Vaca

We just returned from our mini-vacation to Nashville, Tennessee and I would love to go back. We went there for a concert and did all the touristy Honky Tonk things. The weather was very hot and humid averaging about 96. The first day we stopped at this park that has a re-creation of the Parthenon in Greece. I have no idea why they built this in Nashville but it was really neat to see. Unfortunately these are the only pics we took while on our trip. We saw Eddie Vedder in concert and it was great. It was a very small theater and we were in the 8th row so you felt like he was singing directly to you. Nashville is known for their nightlife and they have several blocks of a variety of bars, most of them being country. We spent both of our evenings in the bars. I loved that you could go into 1 of probably 50 bars at any given time and hear live music at any time of the day. I would love to go back just for that. We were also able to tour the country music hall of fame and check out Opryland. It was a great vacation. I found a pic online of the main drag downtown.

Front Porch Refresh

I have been wanting a screen door for the front for a very long time. I am a windows wide open, fresh breeze in the house kind of girl. We finally bought a very nice storm door with the help of my friend Jennifer.(Thanks again Jennifer for the anniversary gift card!) There were some other things I wanted to do to the entry but we were going to put them off and just install the storm door. Well during the process we realized that our old lock would hit the new handle on the storm door so we decided to go ahead and replace the lock on the front door. It was old and lose anyway but man those things are expensive. Then we decided to go ahead and do everything we wanted to do originally so quickly the prices started adding up. I painted the door a darker red and painted the trim. Everything looks so much better and I love having my front door open now. Of course we ran into problems along the way and it ended up being a two day project but it just wouldn't be a Sondgeroth remodel if we didn't have problems. I don't really have before pics but you can see the front door in our Landscape Remodel post.

Last weekend we were in Terre Haute helping my aunt move and then my brother move so I got some cute pics of Cameron. He is a very strong and happy little boy.
