  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

one decade later

10 years ago it took an entire team of 3 girls, my roommates, to get me ready for a date with Nic.  The makeup, the wardrobe assembly (my skirt and boots, someone else’s top), the dancing around singing to our favorite songs.  Oh the production.

Ten years later, here is what life looks like:

As I’m waking up Nic rolls over and pops a zit on my forehead.  I hate that he does this.  I believe it is permanently damaging my skin.  He’s been doing this for a decade anyway.  “The least you could do is brush your teeth before torturing me” I tell him.  I pee in front of him.  I check my email, see that the bride who had been ready to book our 4k package last night now wants to get it down to 1800.  “You should just tell her ‘if you want all this [Nic points at me] it’s gonna cost you dearly.  at least that’s what my husband says.’ “

All of this and we’d been awake a whopping 20 minutes.
