I have tried to start many blogs in the past. It is easy to see that I am not a professional blogger. I have all these ideas but the bottom line is that I have a short attention span and am easily distracted. Life.Home.Projects is just a place to document the things that are going on in our lives. This is what we are all about...

About myself: I am a mother of one darling daughter named Kiera and yes, you will hear about her often here on the blog... and you will see her too because I love taking photos of her... even though she doesn't really let me anymore. I had my own photography company... Laughter & Love Notes Photography. It sounds glamorous but unfortunately I am in an over-saturated market here for photographers. Everywhere you turn it seems like there is another photographer. I decided that even though I love taking photos of my world, I don't have the aggressive business sense required to be really successful in this field. I am also a wife. I married my husband in 2011 after being together for seven years. He is Kiera's father, not that it is really any of your concern, and he is my first husband.

About Kiera: She is a smart beautiful little girl. She has my husband's attention span and my attitude. Neither of which is really the best.  As of June 6, 2016 she is 8 years old and starting the third grade.  Today actually.  We have decided to homeschool on a trial basis this summer.  I have not been happy with some of the things that I have seen going on at her school as far as teacher involvement, curriculum, and school politics.  Stay tuned for more on homeschool adventures.  On a personal note about Kiera, she is snarky and wonderful.  She is hitting hard with the preteen attitude a bit early which is clearly going to strain our relationship, but I believe that we will come out on the better side of things.  She is an awesome nerd.
About Frankie: He is my husband. He is obsessed with computers. He has been rebuilding and installing since I met him. He has been working as a furniture delivery driver for over a year now and I am proud of him for this.  This is his first "grownup" job with benefits and insurance.  I feel that this has marked a milestone for him and for us as a family.

I am not an instinctive homemaker. My house is messy more often than it is clean. I don't want it to be but it has always been very difficult for me to keep my house kept up. I want a home that looks like it should be in Better Homes and Gardens.

I have a confession... I am addicted to Pintrest. As of today (May 12, 2012) I have 17 different boards. *UPDATE: As of Dec. 9, 2013 I have 53 boards and almost 2800 pins* **UPDATE: As of June 6, 2016 I now have 78 boards and 4450 pins**I will be honest... my obsession with Pintrest is the real reason for me making this blog. I have so many projects that I am planning to do around my house very soon and yes, some of the ideas did come from Pintrest. Some didn't but either way I wanted a place to document my projects.
I also constantly start a photo project called Project 365.  This is a photo project where you are supposed to take and post one photo a day for a year.  I am not good at keeping up with these projects and have yet to finish a single one.  I can't promise that I won't start another but for now I have given up any hope of doing so.
