She has been wanting a tattoo for quite some time now, but she hasn't been about to get one due to her treatment... Well they finally gave her the go ahead and she went big for her first.. Check it out! Oh yeah, Carly's tattoo is for my brother... I guess it's a tribute to Josh, lol... They are best friends and she wanted to get something for him!

This was my last update for you about Carly Driscoll....

"Carly is beautiful not only on the outside but on the inside, you might remember that name because many of you have prayed for her by my request. Carly was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma of the sinuses in February, which is a form of cancer. She is almost done with her treatments, and its been a long bump road for her, please continue to keep her as she moves forward in life and blossoms into the beautiful women she is!"

Well Saturday, Carly was sent to the ER for nausea and headaches. She then started having seizures and was moved to ICU. After many tests were run, Carly was told her cancer is back and has spread, she now has Brian Cancer & the cancer is also in her spinal cord. Carly has been given options and she has decided to STAY STRONG and fight this. She will begin INTENSIVE treatment thursday, which is very painful and will make her very very very sick... I AM ASKING YOU TO PLEASE pray for this child, she is 18 with a long life she has yet to live. Please, please pray.... As often as you can..... The bible says For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. Matthew 18:20 Please pray for God's presence in her life now, more than ever, so that she feels his peace and she knows he is here with her, watching over her, and comforting her, and please pray for her family, you can't image what her mom is going thru and if you are a mom, try to put yourself in her shoes. Then lastly pray that the hands that touch her are healing hands, they are the hands of God and that they make the right decisions to help her beat this sickness.

Please repost this, blog this, email this, tweet this, whatever you can do to spread Carly's message, God listens to prayers, and this sweet 18 year old needs your prayers!

Thank you so much...

I love you all, & I love you Carly, STAY STRONG!

Five Words

My dear friend, Jennifer from The Days I'll Remember, did a post based on five words. I thought it was so cool and asked her to choose 5 words for me...

My 5 words are journey, marriage, family, memories, and music.

I am going to use wikipedia to define the words correctly then give you my twisted definition on them... :)

1. A journey is a trip or voyage.

Journey- That's a tough one, that word means to me, growing, and progressing in life. I feel like with my photography business I am on a constant journey. The past 2 years of my life have changed so much, it's hard to look back and imagine where I was just 2 years ago. Everyday things seem to be falling into place. I have had to leave behind a few people who weren't very supportive and people who live for competition, but I tell you I couldnt be happier in the decisions I have made and the life changes I have made.... I am on a constant journey here lately and I am growing more and more everyday as a wife, person, photographer, daughter and I couldn't be more proud of myself.

2. Marriage is a social union or legal contract between individuals that creates kinship.

Marriage- Whew, can we really explain marriage, lol.... It's a huge headache, annoying, irritating, aggravating, but while being all of those things, its sensual, loving, caring, emotional, fun, heart moving... I love my marriage & even though its a never ending job, I am always having to work on it and work on my heart, its oh so rewarding. Marriage def. requires two people who are willing to change and willing to give 100%. Oh and it's def. about picking your battles & deciding is it really worth a argument, and 90% of the time it's not. I love my husband with all of my heart and never doubt that I made the right decision by marrying him, and I am so thankful for everyday that God blesses me with him.

3. Family denotes a group of people or animals (many species form the equivalent of a human family wherein the adults care for the young) affiliated by a consanguinity, affinity or co-residence.

Family- I love my family and I love spending time with my family. I was raised to do everything with family and spent most of my friday and saturday night playing cards with family rather than partying with my friends. I have always been a person who would rather spend the day with daddy then hang with friends. Michael on the other hand was raised very different, his view o family is completely different than mine so I am interested to see the even mixture we find when we have kids and its time to raise them. I love FAMILY gatherings and I love being around a lot of people, the more the merrier, & holiday's with my family is the best ever! Family to me is the friends who never turn their back on you, no matter what they are always there for you, and even in the hardest of times when you make the worst decision they accept you with no judgement and hug you and tell you, it's ok, everything with work out...

4. In psychology, memory is an organism's mental ability to store, retain, and recall information.

Memories- When I think of the word memories I start to recall all of the good times growing up, which draws back to my family. I have so many wonderful childhood memories which are responsible for shaping me into the person I am today. I also think about the past 4 years of my life, which have been awesome, I think back to May 18, 2006, the day I met my husband, then I think back to April 4, 2006, the day we officially started dating. Then theres December 24, 2006, the night of our engagement, then theres May 30, 2007 the day I became Mrs. Bell..... So many wonderful memories... Every person has good and bad memories, and a memory is something as humans we had to live through, and those good and bad circumstances are what made us who we are today.

5. Music is an art form whose medium is sound.

i love music Pictures, Images and Photos

Music- What does the word music mean to me? Music is my everything, music is my heart & soul, and music is my reason.
I am a huge music freak and everything I experience I relate to songs, I love to listen to music late at night, it helps me fall asleep, it calms and soothes my soul. If you asked me what kind of music I listen to, the only way I would know to respond is by telling you what I dont listen to, because I am a huge fan of almost ALL music. I like the kind of music that most people would never even thing about listening to. That's me and that's who I am.. I love to sing & I love to find new music that no one has heard yet. Music has always been my run to thing, anytime I have ever been upset music is my cure all. Music in my opinion, along with love, is what makes the world go round!

I hope you have enjoyed my crazy definitions on words, and my twist on things...

If you would like to keep this going, leave me a comment and I will assign 5 words for you to describe....

Happy Thursday..
