The Sort of Hope Who Should

I should be shopping. I should be wrapping. I should be writing Thank You notes. I should be talking to my brother. I should be petting my dog. I should brush the cat. I should strip the beds. ( oh their embarrassment!) I should dust. I should be scrubbing the shower. I should phone a friend. I should take out the trash. I should sort the mail. I should be baking Christmas Cookies. I should be editing photos. I should be putting laundry away. I should be *doing* laundry. 

I should not be writing a blog. 

I should figure out why this is typing in blue….  stockingswerehungIf memory serves, my younger sister Rachel emailed that cartoon to me back before I even had a fb acct. ( now that’s a long time ago.) It  just never gets old for me. Must be the balls 😉

Though my most recent photo session with Kevin of Soul Imagery looks more New Year’s Eve than Christmas, I still felt like sharing it with my favorite Christmas cartoon. I get so excited when I see his name on my messenger list. That part feels a bit like Christmas. I love to see the results of our work together.  Just got 2 more photos back from the day we spent at Adrienne’s Inn at Center Park. Still hoping to get to shoot there again~hopefully while I still have these long locks!

Too Much W(h)ine

Hope the lush

“Too much w(h)ine”.

or feel free to make up your own clever title. I’m at a loss.

Got my first photo back  from my recent shoot with Kevin Brett at Soul Imagery

I’m so lucky that I am a grown up who still gets to play dress up.

Welcome to All Sorts of Hope

Wow. This is an awful lot more difficult than I expected it to be. “Blog”  they said.  How hard could it be? All the cool kids were doing it … or so it seemed.


I don’t even know if you’ll see this. Or what it will look like once you finally do. It is my hope with this blog to eventually move away from FB and find a nice quiet place to share my thoughts, my journey, my photos, my stories. Join me. Because I’m sure I’ll miss you.

I’ll eventually get to the background of who I am and why I’m here ( on this blog, not this earth, because I still have no idea why that is.) but I just want to make certain I’m getting this all where it belongs first. Oh, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Hope~Thus the ‘all sorts of Hope’.  I’m going to give you all sorts of me. The good, the bad, the happy and the sad. The fun, the grumpy, the healthy and sadly , the sick. I’ll give you my time and my talent and, naturally, all sorts of my hope(s).

Feel free to post all your tacky little Hope jokes too, I’ve heard them all and rarely are they punny. I’m sure my mother didn’t realize when she named me that she gave men the opportunity at some of the *worst* pick up lines ever.

On another note, I do , however love a good hope quote- those you are more than welcome to share. I’ll share ’em too.

In the mean time… here’s a little known “hope” fact..  I borrowed it from Wikipedia. and you know if it’s on wiki, it must be true. 😉

Hope can first be seen in ancient Greek mythology with the story of Zeus and Prometheus. Prometheus stole fire from the god Zeus, which infuriated the supreme god. In turn, Zeus created a box that contained all manners of evil, unbeknownst to the receiver of the box. Pandora opened the box after being warned not to, and those evils were released into the world; hope, which lay at the bottom of the box, remained. This is the beginning of the tale of hope.

And so it is….your beginning to the tale of Hope
