Suprise...I'm Your Secret Photographer!

So Chris Weakley, a guy I graduated highschool with, contacted me a to tell me he was proposing to his girlfriend Stephanie and wanted to hire me to be the photographer to capture the moment as he was doing it. Jamie and I went "undercover" as just a couple eating at a table next to their's and when he was about to do it I had my camera ready! It was quite an experience and I think I was more nervous than  he was, hoping that everything would turn out just right and I would get the perfect shot.  It was a sweet moment and I have to admit I did almost cry.
Props to you Chris for being so clever!  Ya'll are such a sweet couple~Congrats to you both!

A Beautiful Day @ the Dog Park

I always love to take Leroy to the dog park at Shelby farms, it is so relaxing to just walk around and breath in fresh air and I believe he feels the same way about it...

Soakin in the beauty......

...Nawlin's Quick & Easy Chicken-Sausage Gumbo...

Ok so if you know me, you know I'm not much of a cook, but lately I have really been trying hard. Iv'e been trying out of the box things and to my surprise and to Jamie's, they have come out pretty tasty. I have learned that seasonings can do a lot for a dish. Try it! You will be surprised! This recipe I decided to do because I have only had gumbo a couple of times and when I did I really enjoyed it and since Jamie had just got back from New Orleans I thought he would enjoy it as well. I also hope you can take this recipe and enjoy it as much as we did because it turn out super deee-lish!

1 medium green bell pepper,chopped
2 cups chicken broth
