This past month, I have made it a priority to get my life back. The last few years my work pressure has gone up immensely and chasing my active and amazing kids around has become nearly a full time job.  This has left little time for me and as a strong introvert, that can be dangerous.

Bit by bit I am getting my inspiration back for photography as well. The things that inspire me the most are cycling, travel and my kids. So….That’s what you’ve got coming your way down below.

I am so happy to be cycling again and getting that important me time. It is crucial for each of us to find those things that both re energize and inspire.  One note – All these images are processed quickly on my phone in stead of with a computer and some version of Adobe RAW photo editing. In my quest to get my life back, I am working to not spend so much time behind my computer either!  Hope you enjoy.
