  • Day 41 of 60 in the “Karen - 60 in 60” series. 
I’m turning 60 yrs old in May & I’m posting a pic of me daily for the 60 days leading up to the big day hoping to portray the 60 yr span of my life.

I don’t want this to sound disparaging against my family, because it isn’t meant to be, but in the late 90’s/early 2000’s my cousin & his plant business, Sunshine Gardens Nursery that I worked for then & still work for occasionally, could not afford an advertising firm to handle their advertising. For this reason, my cousin decided that I could be his in-house advertising department. (This was nothing new for me, when I was 12 yrs old I also worked for him & back then he thought I could paint signs; street signs, plant signs, bathroom signs, etc., for the nursery, [what 12 yr old can paint signs? That’s crazy!] But that’s what I did! I painted signs &, fast forward almost 20 years later, it didn’t faze me that he thought I could run all his advertising campaigns single handedly w/no ad experience.

In 2000ish, my cousin, Ron, (Santa, for those who know about my regular seasonal job for him these days as Mrs. Claus) decided to advertise Sunshine Gardens 4 times in a row, a 1/4 page ad each time, in the magazine called San Diego Home & Garden because there was a cheaper rate per ad if you ran more ads in a row. But to save money, he had me come up w/an ad campaign & produce the ads “in-house”. I had a “deja vu all over again” experience since this was a new millennium version of 12 yr old me painting signs for him) He & I came up w/a campaign centered around the fact that Sunshine Gardens is a family business (still is to this day!) & I showcased different family members & seasonal merchandise in each ad. For the 1st ad, I used myself posing in & w/the many roses Sunshine Gardens used to sell. My dad took the photos w/his HP point & shoot camera & together we became a very short-lived advertising firm. When this was over I swore off advertising as a possible career choice . . . and modeling. .

  • How in the W O R L D is this sweet and sassy thing S I X years old?!?!?! It is so crazy how fast time flies by.. I remember taking the picture on the left it was the first time I caught her huge and contagious smile that hasn't changed one bit. 
I pray she never loses that spark that makes her smile. She brings us so much joy {and is most likely the cause of a few of my gray hairs...🤦‍♀️}. But I feel so blessed to have a mini me, who I sometimes wish wasn't so similar to me!

Keeping beatin to your own drum and spreading sunshine wherever you go Della Bell! ❤

  • Our first family photo. Film camera. One photo exists. I can still touch every feeling that exists from this moment. There was no social media ‘back then’. Just a phone to pick up to spread the news that we had a new baby girl named Claire Adele!! 8 pounds 10 ounces. The start of a new life I didn’t know was coming. It would only be a matter of days before I was knee deep in the biggest challenges of my life. Motherhood. Cracked nipples. Uterine and bladder infections. Exhaustion like I had never felt before. A small human being that depended on me to live. The witching hour. My type A driven personality struggled those first few weeks. Not understanding how all I could do was get dressed in a day. Standing in a shower crying. No one was going to tell you it’s hard as hell. And no one would be able to describe the love you will feel. Often times it’s at my newborn shoots that I have quiet conversations with new moms about those early days and assure them they will make it through. Those early days were not easy for me. But one day I said, mercy. I surrendered myself to motherhood. Threw my hands in the air and accepted a shower when I could. A nap when I could get one. The saying, ‘the days are long and years are short’ is so true. Those early days of crying, sleep debt and not knowing what had happened to my life also brought with it a bond to this precious brown eyed little girl like I have never known. We survived!! And I am proud. #sweet16 #birthstory #newborn #newbornlife #oneforthewallphotography #reallife #birthdaygirl #babygirl
