Having it ALL together…

I have been asked this a few times in the past and and most recently by Jennifer Veitch on how I ‘DO IT ALL with balance?” So, I asked her to shoot me some questions so that I can expand a little on the topic.   Let me preface this by saying: I will be the […]

Kristin Peaks I love reading your blog. You write perfectly for blogs and it is so enjoyable to read. This one is perfect. There isn’t anyone that can read this and not have a part that “hits home”. Very well said…. you are very talented!June 16, 2011 – 1:07 pm

Shannon perfectly said and just what I needed! TY!June 15, 2011 – 11:41 pm

Life with Kaishon Arden! This is so good! I can’t even really stand how DEAD on this is. Yay for making this business work for you and your family. You are a star in my book. And trust me, it is a very impressive book ; ) I am sharing this at Pictage in the forums right this second!June 15, 2011 – 10:26 pm

Michelle Aghhhh, I love this!! Especially the friendly reminder about other blogs that showcase their authors’ lives as perfect. No one really has it all together, but I’m sure lots of us have bits and pieces together :) Thanks Arden!June 15, 2011 – 1:00 pm

Heather Essian What great words friend! I’m glad I can share in the balance struggles with you! =)June 15, 2011 – 11:04 am

Brittany Keeton Wow! Thank you SOOO much for sharing…. It’s so great to think that I am not in this alone, and that other people are trying to find balance in the exact same manor. I absolutely relate to your post, and it gave me a sense of hope, or ease just reading this. So again, thank you for your honesty! I love what I do, but I love my family more!June 15, 2011 – 10:59 am

Mr. and Mrs. Scasta: Love

This is a touching story. A couple, who have been together about fifteen years now. Falling in love in high school, heading to college together (Go Aggies!), tying the knot, building a family. They actually hired me a couple of years ago to capture their first born child: Miss Addisen   We both found out […]

Karin What a beautiful, touching story. The pain is still showing in their eyes, but so is their courage, their love for each other and their willingness to walk in His light. Love the photos with the sun burst–it’s a sweet reminder that God is walking them through this. Also love the story of the birds. God is so good to send us hugs like that.June 16, 2011 – 8:16 am

Susan Fowler Oh wow– such a beautiful post, such beautiful pictures. My heart hurts for them, but I LOVE seeing marriages thrive after unimaginable dark times.June 14, 2011 – 7:04 pm

Samantha Workman OMG, I had to catch my breath when you wrote about the two birds. I found myself not breathing. Wow, how very incredible. I am a firm believer in “signs” and I do think God sends us messages to let us know that our loved ones are with Him, and taken care of, and watching over us. This is beautiful. I’m sure they feel blessed to have such loving images. Lovely post, Arden.June 14, 2011 – 3:23 pm

Baby Elle: 7 Months

Awh I love this family. You will recognize them from their maternity and newborn photos! I met Phu when I was in middle school. She was my BFFs older sister. It is so neat seeing your childhood friends grow in love, life and family. Baby Elle is precious and makes the CUTEST little noises.   After […]

KA+P: Engagement Peek

Can I just throw a fit for a moment? I am already booked on their wedding date. I am… to say the least, SAD! (lying on floor tantrum style, kicking and whining)   These two are simply perfect, as you can see!

Get in my BELLY

So there are BIG pros and cons of heading to NYC when you are pregnant. Con: You cannot buy any clothing – though I think of this as a PRO… why? Pro: You want to EAT a lot of food – and not just ANY food… WONDERFUL, mouthwatering, scrumptious, unique, and sometimes pricey FOOD. (So, […]
