Northern California Road Trip

We took a few days off last week to visit our loved ones in California and of course we had to do a road trip up the coast while we were there. I’ve been to California many times in my life and I’ve seen many of these sites before but …

Fall

We have finally started to settle into our new home and the Christmas decorations have gone up! My kids, full of excitement ask me if it’s Christmas every morning and I can’t wait to finally be able to tell them yes! Although, winter seems to have come in full swing in …

Giving Thanks!

Isn’t it great that we have a national holiday that encourages us to be thankful?! I have to admit that being thankful can be somewhat of a challenge at times. You know, like when you see that “friend” on Facebook post 500 pictures from the 4 vacations they took this …

Celebrating a Year!

It is hard to believe that just a year ago SmmS Photography was launched! It has been an incredible year, full of wonderful surprises and even a little bit of heart ache. They say good things don’t come easy, and although it took a lot of hard work, it was …

Moving Day!

I am currently sitting on the last chair left in our house and as I write this, my husband is locking up the POD in the front of the house for it to go to our new home. When we moved to Georgia last year, we were just happy to …

Savannah Road Trip

It’s been a very busy summer around here. Between month long trips and busy schedules, we’ve been doing a lot of running around the last couple of months. So, we decided to end this already amazing summer with a relaxing road trip to the beach. There is something about the …

Arizona!

Here are the promised pictures from our trip! You can skip the chit chat if you wish but, I’d like to give some insight to where we’ve been, for those who wish to know. I’ve actually been to Arizona several times and even lived there for my junior year of …

Cupcakes and Tea

I mentioned in the previous post that I was in Phoenix. Well, I’m still here and I’ve had a sweet time… literally :). My sister Cristina loves to decorate cakes and cupcakes, she makes all kinds of edible floral decorations by hand. I just had to test some of her …

Summer Fun

There are so many things to enjoy about summer that I could probably write an entire month about it. When I was younger summer meant one thing: vacation! Sleeping in, being outside from dawn to dusk, going to the beach, road trips, and lots of barbecuing, what’s not to love? …

Summer Green

Although we are just entering the month of June, it sure feels as if summer is in full swing and we are enjoying every minute of it. Everywhere we go all we see is green. All of the spring buds are in bloom and the trees are full of the …

A New Look

11 years ago I was late to sign up for my junior year elective classes and I got stuck in an introductory computer programing class. Although, I was the only girl in a class of 20+ students, that was the least of my worries. I might as well could have …

A Walk Down Memory Lane

I remember when I was a kid that waiting just two minutes for something used to feel like an eternity. Lately, I’ve been counting time by Fridays. I watch weeks pass by and before I can think of the weekend coming, it’s already passed. It’s funny how time feels so …

Spring Blossoms

I had a little Spring break during the Easter holiday. I took this time off to spend with my family and we definitely enjoyed the new Spring temperatures. Walking around our new city, smelling the wonderful fragrances and seeing all the glorious colors of the Spring, even my four year …

Spring around the House

After battling the flu and the rain for the past few weeks, I was finally able to enjoy the outside world once again. I was thrilled to find out spring is here!! Excited to be out and about I ventured around our neighborhood and found spring blossoms everywhere. I love …

Winter in the Mountains!

We had the pleasure of spending a few days in the North Carolina mountains a few days ago and it was just what the doctor ordered (expect for nearly having a heart attack going up the very icy road). I love snow! Growing up in NYC I definitely had my …

Happy New Year!!!

It’s 2013!! Can you believe it? I Wish I had words of wisdom for the coming year, the truth is I’m still learning myself. So, all I can do is wish you all a wonderful and happy year full of laughter, good health, prosperity, love and peace. Although, I don’t …

Merry Christmas!!

Although I am aware it’s only Christmas eve, I can not contain my excitement! Tomorrow just so happens to be my absolute favorite day of the year! It’s not just because I’ll get to spend the day with my wonderful family or because we’ll be opening presents. It will also …

Louisiana!

A few weeks ago we visited the beautiful state of Louisiana and got to see the state capital: Baton Rouge, as well as New Orleans! Growing up in NYC and being able to go to the beach in a mere half hour, definitely made me a water person. Seeing the …

Texas!

This year we decided to spend Thanksgiving with our friends and family in Texas! It was so great seeing our loved ones and the warm weather was just the icing on the cake. After indulging in turkey and pecan pies, we decided to walk around and visit the downtown part …

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year has been an incredibly blessed year in our lives. As I look back, I could never have imagined last year that I would be sitting here in my home (in Georgia) writing a blog post :). Yes, I will probably eat turkey at some point in the day …

Fall in the country

Since I did a tribute to my old home, I only saw it fair to do one for my new one as well. Here are some pictures of the beautiful country side! Although, we technically live in a city… the beautiful forests and hills of Georgia are all around us. …

Fall in the city

Two weeks ago I took these photographs in the city I called home for most of my life, New York City. There is something about the downtown area that is so calming and beautiful to me.  I walked around thinking about all the warm spring days and crisp fall ones …

P31 Conference

A month ago I left my husband and my kids to spend 3 days with complete and total strangers! For the first time in a loooong time I did something completely on my own and it was very scary! No TV, no internet, and no… wait for it… cell phones …

Florida!

This year, the last few days of summer were extra sweet because we spent them with family, whom we haven’t seen in years. For this reason we decided to go and spend a few days at the beach! That was the plan… however, hurricane Isaac quickly changed all of our …

HELLO OUT THERE…

Welcome to my blog! As I’m starting to write these very first words I feel like a blank canvas waiting to become a masterpiece (or at least something decent enough to cover the cracks in a wall). I’m not the best of spellers and I’m not someone who finds their …
