A Lack of Pictures This Weekend

I have not taken any pictures the past two days.  I confess to having been completely absorbed in the tragedy that occurred in Tucson (about 20 minutes from my home) yesterday morning.  I have been glued to the television and the internet for updates, and my thoughts have been wrapped up in the stories of the victims of this senseless shooting.

I especially can't stop thinking about the beautiful and completely innocent 9-year-old girl whose life was taken by this disgusting person.

I hope to resume back to normalcy again tomorrow, but this weekend has been about those who were victims to a person full of hate, whom I can't really talk about without getting furious.  This weekend has also been about special moments with my husband and daughter. 

Times like this make you realize what really matters in life.  I keep thinking about what the mom of that little girl must be going through, and I can't help but hug my daughter tight.

I hope you are all hugging those you love as well.  This world needs more love.  Less hate.  And I am an eternal optimist who believes there is far more love in this world than hate.  I just don't like it when the hate gets a loud voice like it did yesterday.


  1. I am also finding it hard to post normall on my blog. I can't stop thinking about the events of last weekend.

About Me

My photo
I'm a high school English teacher turned stay-at-home-mom. The more time I spend home with my daughter, the less I want to go back to teaching (although I love it and miss it). I have a new interest/passion/obsession with photography, and while I know I have a very, very long way to go, I am completely loving my new-found hobby. I am completely Disney obsessed (and a former Disney World Cast Member). For those familiar with the Disney lingo - I worked in Entertainment. Best friends with Mickey Mouse. Is there a better job in existance? I would argue no. Well, ok. Staying home with my sweet girl ranks up there pretty high. Although, when I get to merge my loves (Disneyland + Bella), it's pretty much my idea of heaven.
