A photographer we know paid her tax bill a few years back and had saved just enough to do so that year. At the beginning of the next year, her “tax adviser” said she should plan on paying the same amount again, which she did trusting that he was giving her good advice. She has a huge increase in business and profits that year and actually tripled her income! Her “tax guy’s” advice she got almost ruined her business. Because she only saved the same amount that she did the previous year, she now owed thousands of dollars she didn’t have and spent the next year trying to clean up that mess. We NEVER want something like that to happen to you.

Ahhhh!  We were so pumped to have our first family photo session taken of Jaxon two months ago by Amy and Jordan Photography and yes, it has taken us this long to decide on final prints and get them ordered.  :)

We are excited to share with you Part One of how we have decorated our walls with this photo session.

We have a front room in our new home that was slated to be the formal dining room, but since we never used our formal dining room in our old place, we decided to use it for something else. It is currently serving as a sitting room of sorts, which we actually have utilized quite a bit!
