where in the world is talia felicia?

i've been around.  not doing much....that's not true at all.  i have been taking care of my new 'snookems' liam-bailey santana.  my beautiful little angel was born on december 26, 2013 three months earlier than expected.  his early entry into our lives created a whirlwind to say the least, but he has been nothing short of a blessing! 

fast forward to april this year.  my loving mother-in-law, beverly won her battle with cancer by receiving the ultimate prize, being with Jesus.  her death rocked our world.  my husband is one of 7 kids and we are an extremely tight knit family, so the adjustment has been overwhelming.  however God is faithful and day by day we are healing. 

with an infant and major changes to our family dynamic it had been really interesting getting back into the swing of things.  blogging has been on my mind, but in no ways a priority on my list.  but i am super excited to be back!   i have been working here and there throughout the year, with it mostly being commissions for graphic design and revamping my online shoppe.  i am grateful for every design project big or small.  but by design i have been chillin' focusing on family and such.  so with the last quarter of the year on the horizon i am ready to get back to work full-time (well my definition of full-time, anyway). 

one thing that this last 8 months has taught me is that i am in control of so little in my life.  but what i know to be true is that spending time with family and the those i love most, is irreplaceable.  i am looking forward to building new relationships and helping brides and grooms create the next chapter of their love story and starting their 'happily ever after'. 

chat with you soon friends!
