Black Tie & Christmas

Last night Ed and I had a black tie event to attend. It’s an annual party at a friend’s home and since isn’t every day that we get dressed up (Ed calls it “wearing his penguin suit”), I thought I’d share a photo from before we headed out. We had a great time and even […]

Whine to Wine

Sometimes you have a day from H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks. Today was one of those… Not terrible in a, “Wow, this is going to change my life forever” kind of day, but one that you can only image is the equivalent to the worst Ground Hog Day (you’ve seen the movie…several times I’m sure) scenario you can think […]

Last Thursday evening we hosted our first ever Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party when we arrived back to the homestead in Culver. It was also our second meet-up for young Culver residents and the group keeps growing. We decided about a month and a half ago that there were many young people who were choosing […]

1968 Morris MK II Mini Cooper S Restoration ~ Always Happy Life Project ~ Culver, Indiana

Ed and I have a fun new project! We’re about to restore my Mom’s (now ours!) right hand drive, 1968 Morris MK II Mini Cooper S into our Always Happy Life car! What could be a more perfect fun car? My mom imported this little beauty into the US from England in approximately 1972 and […]

Always Happy Life Photography ~ Indiana Newborn Photographer ~ Baby Carter

Baby Carter is another adorable little guy I’ve had the chance to work with recently for Always Happy Life Photography. I love newborns. There…I’ve said it. There’s something about their tiny fingers and toes, squished little noses and wrinkly skin that gets my heart. Back when I was in nursing school, I worked in the […]
