Lets get to know each other. My name is Cassi and I am a lifestyle blogger at Bright Forest. I am a wife and mother to one spunky girl. I am a photographer and owner of Bright Photography. My domestic loves are cooking, decorating and sewing. I am pretty sure I have enough cookbooks and food magazines for three people. But I use them all the time, or at least that is what I tell my husband when I buy a new one. I work full-time as a Project Specialist for a major university in Minnesota.  We are travelers whether it be close camping trip or jumping on plane to see the world, we love it all. In my free time I like to read. I am an avid reader with very eclectic tastes in books. Ghandi said "Be the Change you want to see in the world". I truly believe this, I hope I am living those words. Well enough about me for now.

Down the street lived the neighbor boy he was about 6, yep even back then I liked them older. His name was Alex....more

Sneaking in art time

Since we finished the craft room, I have been trying to make a more conscious effort to do more art. Whether that is sewing, scrap-booking or painting it doesn't matter as long as I am spending time being creative.I have also been getting Mouse to focus on more creative outlets too. Letting her use whatever supplies she wants in the room to create. Trying not to say no when Mouse wants me to join her at times that are not the most convenient to me....more
