Photography Update: All About the Little Moments


It has been another long span in between posts, but that isn’t for a lack of luster in the life of Leann! In fact, I’ve had four photo shoots since my last post, and – for me – that is a LOT! Photography has always been just a hobby of mine, but it seems that as each year passes, either more friends and family are getting engaged, married, or pregnant or more are gaining faith in my photography skills. I’d like to think that it’s a combination of both.  Continue reading

One thing most people learn about me early on is that if you suggest taking a trip to a city with great food, I won’t need much convincing to say, “Of course I’ll go!” That’s how my story begins.

Adventures in Online Dating


… and now open to online dating

Why not, right? That’s what I’m telling myself at least. It all started off as a great girls’ night. And, after a glass (or two) of wine perfectly paired with the latest episode of “The Bachelor,” it was hard not to long for a fairytale dream date — complete with glass slippers and teardrop diamond earrings (OK, maybe this week’s episode was a little heavy on the Cinderella product placement.).

Is he sweet and romantic? Of course he is. Should I give it a try? … I think you know how this night ended. Continue reading
