uprooting

I've uprooted my blog.
And transported it over to wordpress.
I don't like the wordpress site as much, it's not as pretty, not as easy to use.
But it has some pretty nifty privacy options that I've decided I might to implement. 
And this way, I can keep one single blog instead of multiple blogs for multiple things.
So from now on, my Camp Isaac Chaos blog and my photography blog and my private blog will all be in one place.
I can put passwords on certain posts.
I can put a unique password on posts with photos for clients.
If you'd like the password for any posts I chose to protect, just email me at bonnielea.isaac@yahoo.com

weekend

Yesterday was a blast.
Drew and I took the kids to the Corning Museum of Glass.
I think we had more fun than they did, but it was a nice day trip.

Then we went to visit Drew's sister at Elmira College.
She gave us a mini-tour, the kids played in the fountains and ran through the grass and climbed in the trees.
It was awesome.





















Great weekend so far.

Today will be interesting, though.
All five kiddos, plus Drew's little sister, plus Drew's daughter.
At a birthday party for my newly one year old niece!
Fun times, fun times!

Coming shortly, a couple pics of the birthday girl, Missy Moo.



















All hail queen bonnie

random ramblings

I just tagged Anthony in a ton of pictures on facebook.
All the pictures of the kids from the last 8 months or so.
I plan to get to the rest at some point.
I want the page to be a fitting tribute.
I want anyone who knew him to be able to see the kids grow up.
I also found a few of his cousins on facebook, which is awesome.
I haven't seen them since the funeral.
Wayyyy too long.

I've been trying to take pics of the kids more regularly.
Today, for instance.
The girls and I were out front just hanging out.
They were riding bikes and coloring with sidewalk chalk.
And I pulled the camera out and snapped a few quick pictures.
I spent way more time editing them than I did taking them.




But, I looooooove taking pictures and I loooooooooooove editing them, anyway.

I need to make sure I pull the camera out at least once a week for some informal shots of each of the kids.

It makes me happy inside :o)


Anyway.
Mom and I did a quick grocery shopping trip tonight.
Which turned out to be not so quick, of course.
And resulted in bedtime coming an hour late for the kiddos.
Which meant that I only got to see Drew for a teeny little while before he left for work.
Which stinks.

But tomorrow is our afternoon together, which helps.
We're trying to have dinner together at least once during the week.
For now, it's Wednesdays.
And any other day we can manage :o)
It's getting easier to be all in the same place.
And harder to be in seperate places.
I can't wait until we can move in together.
I know it will be quite a while still, that time is months away, at the very least, but I still can't wait.
I love him, so much.
It feels good to be in love, to be happy, and to have so much hope for the future.
It's been six months and our relationship feels better every day!
This is the way love is supposed to feel.
You're supposed to fall more in love with the person all the time, not out of love a little at a time.


In other news...
it's bedtime for Bonzo.
Past bedtime.
I've been so tired lately, and I've got a lot going on tomorrow.
Photoshoot, babysitting, laundry...
ya know, same old, same old.

:o)

broken, but stronger

It's weird.
To think about Anthony.
To miss him so much that my heart still breaks, and the tears still fall when I see a picture.
It's weird to think about him. To miss him. To want him to be here with us.

But, at the same time, to be in love with someone else.
To want to spend forever with him.
To imagine us growing old together.

It feels like I'm being pulled in two different directions.
It feels weird to miss Anthony and wish he were here... but to be in love with and dream about our future with Drew.

It feels weird to come to terms with the fact that Anthony was my past.
He's gone, there is nothing I can do about it, and there is no bringing him back.

And Drew is my future.

I had a dream several months ago.
Drew and I had a baby.
But Anthony was there, and he helped me pick out a name.

I think sometimes about how, if Drew and I ever managed to have a baby, I can only imagine that I would wish Anthony was there to share that moment with me.

I know that when the kids grow up and graduate and get married and have kids of their own, I'm going to ache for Anthony.
Even though I have no doubts at this point that Drew will be there my side.

It's such an odd feeling/thought.

Two very different places in my heart.

I can't imagine my life without Drew anymore.
But I still wish Anthony could be here with us.

It's confusing.

Having Drew doesn't make me miss Anthony any less.
It doesn't make me not wish he was still here.

Drew doesn't fill the empty space in my heart that Anthony's death left.

But Drew has created a new spot in my heart.
My heart has grown.

Broken. But stronger.

If that makes any sense.

It barely does to me.
