Today has been a lazy Sunday to say the least and I have had all day to sit around and think about my current situations…
I tend to care far more in all situations than other people do. I love harder, hurt deeper, laugh harder, and try my best to heal others of their pain but sometimes I need someone to help me as well.
Why do I allow myself to stay in such a lonely place in my own little world? Sometimes it gets very hard having to (basically) live daily life and parent alone.
My husband works as much as he possibly can to give us everything that we want and need but really, Money can’t buy me Love. Money gets me nowhere when I am sleeping alone at night or just needing someone to talk to.
Sometimes it is good to be alone, I know, but it is also to be someone priority too.
Emotions and words get tangled, social media, electronics and other things get in the way of the one thing we all want in life, to spend time with the ones that you love.
I may be “annoying or needy” but it is just because when I have the chance, I want to be together. Tomorrow is never promised and I try to LOVE like there is no tomorrow. I do not want to leave this earth with out all of my loved ones knowing how much I love them.
Maybe it’s the medication, I am unbalanced and emotional but when I feel, I feel deeply. I have always been this kind of person and I do not plan on changing.
Life is hard, living is hard and Love is the hardest of all.

I don’t know about you all but I have been sickly, cold and staying indoors lately. We recently have had the coldest cold front we have had in a long time and this little lady just isn’t for it. My immune system is doing its best thankfully because I have to avoid any and all infections due to how my bladder flares after antibiotics.
So I have been filling my down time with movies other than reading and yes I will be sharing my view on “Fight less, Love more” when I am finished with it.
Last nights movie was “Stepmom” starring Julia Roberts and Susan Surandon, one of my favorite movies from my younger years. This movie is a perfect movies for a cold winter day. I have been off of my Anti-depressant medication since the 29th and I am a big ball of Emotion!!!!!
As a child I did not know what Cancer even was or as an adult I really do cry my eyes out. Is it just me or is Cancer way more common these days than in the 90s? I think so.
Another favorite is “Crazy, Stupid, Love”. The cast of this movie is just amazing and every little twist and turn is hilarious and heartfelt. Movies like this shows me that you don’t have to have a picture perfect life to have it all. Sometimes things fall apart, sometimes life gets crazy but it is how you deal with it, that’s what matters.
Let me just say that Shailene Woodley has always been a favorite actress and when she stars in a movie, I know I am going to be in love. Her corcky and raw personality along with Ansel Elgort just went together perfectly! I have watched this movie a Hundred Million times and I will never get over the heartache.
So, Tomorrow I will be uploading a new Vlog on my YouTube channel Subscribe here! I will be loading weekly Vlogs ever Friday for the whole Year of 2018!!!!! Oh snap! It’s about to get real guys!
Let me know some of your favorite Movies to keep me company while I am in bed a lot. I love watching and reading new books and opening my mind to creative worlds.
Until tomorrow. Xoxo

There is a few things you guys should know about me right now
1. I hate laundry
Laundry is the most annoying chore in my household mostly because we have a 9 y/o daughter who changes her clothes a million times a day. I have to wash clothes at least once a day to keep up with it and well, I’m lazy and 90% of the time I am not feeling good (thanks to Interstitial Cystitis) and well shit gets piled up.
2. I can sleep my life away
When it comes to sleep I typically need like 18 hours of sleep daily. I have always been this way and I have always needed naps. Like I am not even joking. When I was in school (elementary- High school) as soon as I got home I would eat and then take a 2 hour nap. As an adult things didn’t change but whatever. Lol
3. I love to cook but hate cleaning.
I could spend all hours of my day in the kitchen putting together homemade meals and snacks for my family but when it comes to cleaning it up I’m like nah! I can not be the only one, right?
So with this whole cleaning and organizing for me, I think it stinks but it is much needed in my house. We get so busy/lazy that shit just gets crammed everywhere… literally. So I am taking it day by day, room by room and completely organizing and cleaning my whole house. I think I have about a million bags worth of crap to throw out already and all I did was put away our Christmas decor and organizing our master bedroom closet.
I guess we will see what I get myself into tomorrow in my house cleaning nightmare.
Oh, Hello to my new followers I am so thrilled to see new faces! This blog keeps me going and each and every one of my viewers makes me so happy!!!!
Well guys the NyQuil is kicking in so I better stop typing. Haha

As you guys have gathered, we just had a week vacation in New Mexico and it was amazing! I feel so amazing as a parent being able to make such timeless memories with my family! Everything about Red River, New Mexico is beautiful! I have never seen such a fascinating and enchanting place in my life!
I mean, it does not get anymore beautiful than this right? I wish that we could sell our house and pack up and leave like yesterday! Lol
The towns are little villages where everyone is so sweet and friendly and there is no stop lights! We couldn’t believe it! Everyone stops for the Mule Deere that walk freely among the town. You can stop and feed the deer and ducks with no fear and everyone just smiles and waves! Ugh, I would love to go back every year because I just felt so at home there.
We made some beautiful memories that’s for sure and it we were even blessed with snow while we were skiing! Talk about enchanting, our children have never been so happy ever!
It meant the world to be able to try something new, travel and spend some much needed time with the ones I love the most. I will be back tomorrow with more photos and details on our amazing trip! I hope enjoyed this post and I hope to see more followers!
Thank you all so much for the uopouring support, I love you all, so much. Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram xxkaseygruenewaldxx

I have been given some amazing opportunities lately with Photography and I am so hopeful this will kick start my career. I have been working so hard on all of my Photos no matter what style Photography. There is still so much that I need to learn and to grow into an amazing photographer but for now I think I am doing okay.
I had the chance to Photograph a Vow Renewal yesterday Evening and I was so bummed when something just wasn’t working correctly with my camera. My settings were off and my focus missed most of the moments I was trying to capture. But the Family is pleased and that is all that matters to me. I have recently sat down and fixed the problem THANK GOD because I have a Bridal Shower to Photograph tomorrow.
With the new Medication I have been on for a little over a week I think I handled being a Photographer very well yesterday. I was not the least bit anxious and maybe a tiny bit nervous but I assume that is normal for all new Photographers.
Here are some of the Photos I took Yesterday. I am aware that they are not the best and I feel so bad but you live and you learn.
Yesterday was a learning experience and I know to check all of my settings before showing up to take photos. I have to admit I was embarrassed because my photos could have been so much better.
Tomorrow is a new day and new chance to reach my full potential as a real Photographer. I look forward to continuing my career as I keep getting blessed with opportunities like these. I will not stop and I will not give up!
I am so thankful to be living my dreams and to be doing what I love for a living! With hard work and Gods favor I know I will be a success some day!
Thank you so much for reading and visiting my page! All feedback is very much appreciated and I hope to see you all Like and Follow my page! I have so much more to share with you all! I just might post another Photography update a little later tonight.
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.
