8 months!

Meet Ciara. Yes, if you can believe it Ciara is 8 months pregnant! no kidding!
I am very excited to meet the baby...will he be early...or wait until October? I'm partial to October...wink wink.

Ciara was raised in Manila, this couture Kimono was given to her from a designer in the Philippines.
Can you imagine being so far from home...

I was touched meeting Ciara. To me, she embodies the word, Modesty. I do not mean that in the lowly way,
but more like this, she is:
"marked by simplicity"
"free from pomp"
"free from affectation"
"not offensive in conduct or appearance"
"humble in spirit or manner"
Happy are the gentle: for the earth will be their heritage.

Not to mention,
Ciara really does Create...to see her extraordinary jewelry collection, please visit:

meet Corrina.



Ok, so Corrina is not only a petite beauty...she has to be one of the sweetest young ladies! my words for Corina...tranquil, amiable, gentle, pleasant...all high compliments in my book! (clear throat here, especially for those who know me!)



Not to mention, Corrina put up with my obsession over her dress...I mean you can put your hands in the pockets! What's not to love? I want one...but then again I also want to be a size one...oh well, another life maybe. (:

city on a hill

I was thinking about this Image...and I thought....yes, I have to agree, "a city set on a hill CANNOT be hidden"...




don't you find the word cannot interesting here...I mean it cannot, cannot...can't..unable to...
I always find words and how they are used curious...cannot...it almost sounds as if it impossible... it cannot. you just can't hide it...what if you want to? can you hide it then? or is it still cannot?

cannot. what a funny word.

nik.



btw. this was taken in pismo, ca...and labeled under Valley Life, because honestly...doesn't everyone here have a house in pismo any way? (:

Got to Wear Shades.

Many of us think of sunglasses as simply eye candy.

The truth: Sunglasses are a safety apparatus. They protect our eyes from the sun, dust, and sometimes...flying objects. When picking out a safety apparatus...one must think of design and functionality.

this stuffs important.

meet The Koets.

two words...

wicked fun! (love that...gonna keep using it...)

I seriously had soooo much fun with these munchkins...the best...absolute best! The kind of kids...you want your kids hanging out with! Not to mention, had a BLAST shooting these...I have never shot a moving object...well, other than a bride...if you consider one an object...i digress...

I'm hooked...it's addicting...I want to do it again!!! Know any one who skateboards...wanting to try that...extreme bike or skateboard stuff...?? fun!

my english is suffering...it's late...

night.

nik.

sneak peak....sort-of.

yep, you guessed it. this is what I shot on Sunday. Probably, not the "sneak peak" the boys were looking for...but I promise, much more to come.
this is the hubby....all 6'5", 220lbs. of him! What's not to love? my Tibbs. have i mentioned how much I LOVE being married to Bruce? We fit. I mean really fit. We celebrated our 12th year together Saturday....I am already saying we are working on our 13th...by next year I will be completely confused on whether or not we are having our 13th or our 14th year anniversary....I am just a nut like that. I love Bruce more today than when we walked down the aisle....

but that doesn't mean I won't run out of the house in my underwear mad at him....not that anything like that has EVER happened before....noooooo not me.

faith fight.

fight! the 'good fight' of doing all the "right" things....make sure your "good"...in fact, really make sure you "look good" to others...fight! fight! fight!

OR... in my case, fight the fight of Faith...faith that says, I can trust Jesus to figure it all out for me...


btw this poster is for that "individual," no names, who so kindly told me my last posters looked straight out of the bible book store...which basically says,..."they sucked."

Heaven forbid! (:

silva rerum

I'm not Polish, but I do like the idea of a "home chronicle"...or the new nikapedia definition: a multi-generational digital scrapbook containing diary-type entries and photos kept by families, as a personal record for future generations....



ok fine...a note and photo book.
best-

"bokehpalm"

As in the Japanese word boke, or "blurred." Not to be confused with the Japanese action adventure creature "bakugane".



I am just in this kind-of mood.

Meet Devin.

Poor Devin...I liked to tease him...he is just too smart (: and I think I razzed him the entire session. It made me remember how much I enjoyed teaching.
I really must have an illness, but I thought grades 5-8th were just so much fun. Or maybe I just liked the fact that kids would come up to Bruce and say, "Hi, are you Mrs. Tibbett's husband?"

Yep, that was definitely my favorite part....
