I have a NEW BLOG!! This has been a goal of mine for more than a year now. A few obstacles were thrown my way, but now it is here. The Lord provides and he is good :)
So, change your bookmarks, and your rss feed, google reader, or what ever else you have and switch it to
There are new posts that you haven't seen yet, so scroll through. And watch the header at the top. It rotates pictures and cool stuff like that :D
Again, this is my OLD BLOG and I will no longer be posting here. From now on, all of my journaling will take place at

Benson says thanks daddy for everything. For all the wrestling and for making me laugh and for holding me when I'm hurt and for hugging me just because. You are the best.---Benson



Craft Time

I'm always looking for some cool craft project to do in my spare time (which isn't often).
I came across this cool little post on Design Sponge and wanted to share with all you crafty photographers out there. I actually have one that Ginger Ivey made me for Christmas. Enjoy this lovely Saturday.

Off to working on albums. It's a crazy job, but someone has to do it :)

Peace O Cake

Last Saturday my mom and I headed over to Peace O Cake to check it out for the first time. It is a cute shop tucked in next to Balloons by the Bunch on 34th St. They have five different cupcakes daily and each week they are different.
We enjoyed the black and white, Italian Creme, and Confetti cupcakes. I can't wait to go back and try some more flavors.
If you are in Lubbock go and check them out if you haven't yet. They even have cute t-shirts!

Lindsie and Garrett. Married!

Lindsie said she always wanted a fun love story, but didn't think she'd actually get it.
Neither Garrett nor Lindsie were looking for anyone at the time. They were both doing their own thing, in their own life. Until her mom wanted to set her up on a blind date with a friend her co-worker knew. The blind date however consisted of Lindsie, her mom and dad, Garrett, and the co-worker and her husband. Who knew being set up on a blind date with your parents could lead to your future spouse?
After hitting it off quite well at lunch, the remainder part of her Thanksgiving holiday she was spending with family, now became time spend with Garrett.
She says, "I fell quickly and hard, head-over-heels for this amazing man who superseded my expectations and most importantly loves God with all his mind, heart, soul and strength. "
[Insert tears here]
Is that not the sweetest thing! Oh but wait, because when I read what Garrett had to say about her after the few days they spent together, it again tugged at my heart.
"When she left me standing in the driveway that Saturday, the feeling in my heart confirmed what I already knew…my life would never be the same. I had all but given up on finding the girl of my dreams, and then God places her in my life and exceeds all my wildest dreams and expectations.
Yes, yes they are truly THIS in love. If not even more so each day they spend with each other I am certain.

The best part about this day...was when Garrett kept looking at her and finally said, "every time I look at you, you take my breath away". He was like a little kid in a candy shop when he saw her for the first time. So giddy he could hardly contain himself.

As he prays for the two of them, she listens intensely to her soon-to-be husband talking to God.
As we were taking the guys pictures, Garrett hears the ice cream man and wanted to do some pictures with him and the truck. One of his groomsmen sipped up on some superman juice and sprinted over to the ice cream truck to wave him down.
I when the wedding party has no fear!
And the girls...oh so beautiful. Who do ya think caught it?
Beautiful rings, but nasty smelling dill plant. I had to wash my hands after this.

Disclaimer: Cristy Cross Photography cannot be responsible for all the lovey dovey pictures that were captured on the day of Lindsie and Garrett's wedding. They did this all on their own without any instructions. I LOVED LOVED LOVED it!

Thank you Lindsie and Garrett for a wonderful wedding that was so sweet and centered around God's love. You two rock!
