A couple of weeks ago a coworker asked me what I was most proud of. My reply was simple; It’s not a thing I am most proud of but a who I am most proud of. The who I am referring to is my daughter. Yep, my beautiful unplanned blue eyed taller than me scholar. I could not be more proud of anyone else but … Continue reading What I am Most Proud of…
It’s ironic that I live closer to Cleveland than Columbus but I spend more time in Columbus than Cleveland. However, Cleveland was the very first city I was introduced to as a child. I was about three years old when my mom was driving on I-480 to my aunt’s new appartmet in Willowick. I can remember her saying to me, “Hey Alex, look out the … Continue reading The Most Iconic Building in Cleveland
Or The Pich Perfect Movie Poster Pose. When I started taking photos of my daughter’s band mates little did I realize that I was going to start a little tradition with the color guard girls. Well for at least the years that my daughter was in school there. It would be a little weird (even though I am an alumni) if I showed up out … Continue reading The Bridesmaid’s Pose
Or I was a roady! Or Band Mom Pride (I am the Anti Band Mom Because I am the Photographer) Either way I am changing up the content here today on Alex Victoria. Hope ya don’t mind but I’ve got a story to tell. Not so long ago I was in a hellish situation. Life was not grand and I was on the bottom of … Continue reading All for the Band!!!
This week in the workforce was a bit of a roller coaster to say the least. Normal work as usual and an individual meeting with the company’s owners. Which is not very usual. Matter of fact it was very unusual. It was the first time an entire department went in one by one to have a single conversation with those who sign our paychecks. Anything … Continue reading Nervous Mistakes
Or We Walked on Frozen Water Because We Can’t Walk on Water Or Solitude in the Tundra of Lake Erie Or Ya Hear That “Erie” Sound When a Rock Hits Frozen Water? Either way one of those would have made a good title. After our appointment this past weekend I took my daughter to the beach just to relax her over worked college soul. I … Continue reading Frozen Over
Yesterday I had to do some typical errands which lead me to go up town to get them done. I can remember growing up how much of an inconvenience it was to live out in the country because you have to drive everywhere. The nearest mall is 30 minutes away, and if you wanted a more metropolitan mall with all the trendier stores, it was … Continue reading From the Quiet Shores of Lake Erie to the City.
I really wish that I had a photo of TW and CB of when they were younger. I believe y’all would see it more between the two of them of would be Steve Rogers (pre-super human powers) and who would be Bucky Barns from Captain America. Since there is no visual here…TW would be Steve and CB would be Bucky. TW met CB at the … Continue reading He’s Bucky and He’s Steve
I did! But just for a moment the other day. It was pretty cold and very gusty. The seagulls or I should say lake-gulls (since this is Lake Erie after all) were rather enjoying the wind. They were taking full advantage of every gust that allowed them to windsurf and glide over the lake with such ease. As for the beach itself…well what can I … Continue reading Have Ya Stopped By the Beach Lately?
This past Sunday was nearly next to perfect. In the words of Hermonie Granger, “How can it be nearly (in her scenario headless) perfect?” Okay let’s rephrase that. It was a perfect Sunday. I had the day off. I usually work on Sundays. I know I am such a heathen! No worries, Papa and I have a pretty good relationship. We’re all good. I had … Continue reading The Next to Perfect Sunday.
