Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Pioneer Woman Picked My Photo!!!!!!!

Ya'll, I am sooooooooooooooo excited!  I can hardly stand it!  I adore Pioneer Woman.  I visit her blog daily.  I have her cookbook and one day I would love to meet her in person. 

I often enter her photography assignment competitions for fun.  This week's competition is "Love."  So, I thought about a precious little girl at our church and the photo I took of her this summer.  And then I threw caution to the wind and decided to enter this photo:

Precious

And.........she chose my photo to be in Group 5. Little ol' me!  
 It's on PW's blog today.  Really!  Go check it out. 
I can hardly type, I am so excited!!!!

Delight! Delight!

P.S.  This news could not have come at a better time!  Our CPA just told us that we will owe major money for our taxes this year.  We've never had to pay this kind of money before.  Yuck! So, my thoughts this morning revolved around whether I should give up teaching or photography...to avoid having to pay additional taxes next year.  I love doing both so much!  That would be an awful decision to make. 

I gave it to the Lord this morning in my prayer time and tried my best to leave it with Him (the Faithful One) and find joy in my day.  An hour later, a sweet friend sent me an email telling me about my photo being chosen.  God's timing is ALWAYS perfect!  He cares about every detail in our lives and He often goes to great lengths to show His love to us and to encourage His children. There is no god like our God! Instead of worrying, I'll be delighting in His love...how about you?

Congratulations! And you definitely deserve it!

About the taxes---so far we don't have a 100% tax rate, so you are still better off than if you hadn't of made the money in the first place.
