I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged by the sweet and talented Megan Peck (thanks Megan!), who requests that I tell you 8 (interesting?) things about myself. Here goes...

1) Tressie is my real name - it's not short for anything. I'm named after my great grandmother, who was a full blood Cherokee Indian.

2) I'm terrified of airplanes. Stomach churning, close your eyes and clench your teeth terrified during take off, landing and any turbulance. Not even public speaking compares. :-)

3) I'm a compulsive list maker. For work, for home, for my kids, groceries...I'm not sure I'd remember to get up in the morning without my list of To Do's! I keep so many lists that I never finish crossing off the items on any of them.

4) I can curl my toes under my feet and walk on them. Weird, I know. I haven't done it for years, and out of the blue my two year old started walking like that. Weird again.

5) I was a Break Dancer when I was a teenager. Yep, cardboard on the basketball court, boom box jammin', hangin' wit da homies break dancin'. I still love dancing, and was bummed when my gym stopped offering hip hop classes.

6) Bad grammar and words used out of context is a pet peeve of mine - especially in business emails. Typos and some spelling errors I can handle (and I certainly make some mistakes myself!), but I get worked up when people use the wrong to/too/two or there/their/they're. Absence/Absents? Principal/Principle? Accept/Except? I have to take a deep breath and stay away from red pencils. :-)

7) I'm obsessed with ice cream, but only the "good" kind - Haagan Daas...mmm.... And I'm cursed with a Maggie Moo's next to my place of employment - I'm never going to lose the last 10 lbs from my pregnancy!

8) My fourth child was born June 21, 2007. He is a very special little boy, named after a very special person in our lives - my father in law. It is an honor for my son to carry the name Robert Allen Davis II. I pray that he will grow up to be as strong, kind hearted, intelligent, honest and loving a person as his namesake. The attached photo is my baby boy with his Papa, his namesake.

That's all folks!

I would have tagged Alli Gaulin, but Megan already got her.

So I tag.....

You're it!

Yay! :-)

Celebrating Adoption

I just joined an organization called Celebrating Adoption - a national organization of professional photographers dedicated to promoting and celebrating adoption. Families that have adopted a child are eligible to receive a free portrait session of that child, and a free set of 4x6 proofs of the session (session must be completed within one year after the adoption)

If you know of anyone who has recently adopted (or plans to), please let them know of this opportunity! I would love to be the participating photographer to offer my services to adopting families in the Chelsea/Ann Arbor area - please contact me! Those outside of the Chelsea/Ann Arbor area need only to visit the Celebrating Adoption website ( to find a local participating photographer, then contact the photographer to schedule the session. (Because each photographer will need to limit the complimentary sessions per month, it is best for family’s to call well in advance for their Celebrating Adoption session.)

I can't wait to meet my first adopting family!!
