Jonny Bee Goods

Today we had the opportunity to shoot at Jonny Bee Goods, a local honey farm.

It was so much fun, and we learned about bees, queens, hives, honey, wax, and not getting stung.

Also, I’m deathly allergic to honey bees and can’t remember the last time I was this anxious.  Luckily, I’m in complete command of my fear at all times.  Except that one time I thought there was a bee in my hood and had a minor break with reality.

Detroit Institute of Arts

A few weeks ago we had the chance to spend some time in the Detroit area, complete with a day at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

In a word, it was fantastic.

The diversity of their collections, quality of facilities, and on-site dining options were all far beyond what we expected.  It truly is a world class museum.  If you get a chance to spend some time there, don’t hesitate.  You won’t be disappointed.


Welcome to the world Levi Daniel!

My sister Becca and her husband Adam allowed me to be a part of the birth of their fifth child, Levi Daniel.  This was especially meaningful, as I my three children were delivered via c-section.  Becca has had a natural home birth for her last four children.  Levi’s birth was incredibly beautiful, peaceful, and relaxed.  It was an honor to be a part of such a private, awe-inspiring experience.  I can’t even describe the special bond I feel with this precious little guy, almost like he is one of my own!

P.S.  They are adorable–can you believe they have five kids?
