Pictures from the Bayou with Love

When I go out in my kayak I have gotten into the habit of grabbing my Rebel camera & hoping I can grab some awesome shots....and to not tip over, not that I have, but my camera is expensive lol

So I want to share some of my favorites with you.  The first few are of an osprey family.  The middle picture shows the parent bringing back food for her fledglings :)

My husband ;)
See ya later alligator!
 And a couple I took at the Birmingham Zoo.  I need to take some time out of my day and take pictures at my zoo one day.

I did it! A squirreled up blog (sorry lol)

I have been soul searching lately.  While I am pleased on how my life is going for the most part, I have been antsy and restless.  There is no real reason for it and while I joke about it to my husband, Scott, about hitting my midlife crisis early lol

The result is me becoming more adventureous.  Which is an awesome thing!  I have taken my family on plenty of them lately.  Most recently was packing up my 9 year old and hitting the road to visit my best friend who lives just north of Birmingham, AL.  I timed it to where I would be semi-close to pick up my oldest from camp or just in case something happened like an Asperger's meltdown.  So I guess I'm responsibly adventurous lol

Anyway, the main reason I'm posting is because I made a Facebook page for this blog!  I forget that I have this blog as you can tell from my last post but I figure if I had a page for it then it would remind me to write more lol

As for my other fan page, it will be unpublished until I feel like I want to write there again.  It just felt like no fun for me to do anymore and in turn made me repeat myself a lot.  I might publish it to let people know where I am now though...some people have tracked me down on my personal account on Facebook or emailed me asking how I was and if I was ok.

I know I'm squirelling all over the place lol I apologize.  Hopefully next time I'll be more on point :)

What's up y'all?

Hey gang!  It's been pretty busy around here lately.  I've made it a mission to enjoy life to the fullest and that is exactly what I have been doing :)

My fall semester in college is almost done.  I'll be glad for my break where I can do more volunteering at the Audubon Zoo.  My ultimate goal is to be employed by Audubon when I get out of school in education.  I absolutely love talking to kids about animals and getting them excited about helping to preserve nature.  Before all of the health and fitness stuff, before having my kids, this is what I did.  Working with animals and educating the public is me....also wildlife rehabilitation <3

Just a throwback for y'all of something we rescued (and released)......

Focusing my newest adventure has my kids all excited and wanting to do the same thing I am.  While that is awesome to hear, I just want them to follow the path that makes them happy.

I'm going to keep this blog short since I can probably drone on and on about doing what makes you happy, following your heart, etc lol

I'll leave you with this......

Why I am doing a new blog

Lately my life has steered away from all health and fitness all of the time to something a bit more balanced.  Between my mother's death, me going back to college, picking up a new hobby in kayaking, working at the Audubon Zoo.....plus my kids and everything else, I wanted to have a blog where I can write about my bigger picture.

I'm not sure how many people will like reading this blog as much as my other one but if you are reading this now then welcome :)


This is the theme of this blog.  Life is so much more than one subject.  Why pigeon hole myself to one subject, right?

I am so excited about this next step.

Chasing Tanee will be a once in a lifetime adventure.....I hope you all get a chance to make your life an adventure too <3
