Last weekend I attended a family reunion in South Dakota. When I wasn’t learning about my paternal ancestors, I was admiring pretty cows on a Hutterite colony and watching my cousin’s kids set off fireworks.

Photo Friday: Nephew Number Three

Last spring my family celebrated a wedding. This spring we welcomed a new member of our family! I have to say, being an auntie is one of my favorite things, so I was thrilled to meet my newest nephew a couple of weeks ago.

You might notice that the baby has oxygen tubes in his nose. His lungs have some catching up to do, but he’s doing great and is back at home with his parents now. Hooray!

3 Generations of Courtney Coherent

3 Generations Summer 90

This Valentine’s Day I would like to celebrate the non-romantic love in my life. Above you have one of my favorites photos with my mom and grandma. I could not be the person I am without these two strong, loving women in my life. Knowing that I have their support has gotten me through many hard times.

That’s love, Gentle Readers.

Photo Friday: Once Upon a Wedding

Two weeks ago I was a bridesmaid in my stepsister’s wedding. The amateur photographer in me was excited to see how a professional photographer runs a wedding shoot. And naturally, I snapped some photos of my own. Here’s just a few of my favorite (non-facial) details.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

In keeping with the tradition of only posting really outdated photos, here’s one from when I was two months old. She could dig out that plaid shirt and hang out in Uptown. Thank you, late ’80s!

Anyone who knows me knows that my mom is the most important person in the world to me. Mom, I hope you’re having a wonderful birthday! (And no, I’m not saying how old she is.)

Courtney Coherent, Circa 1990

My grandpa was one of the people who taught me to love books. He inspired me to be an English major and a reading teacher. I miss him always.
