Etre [eh-truh] : French verb meaning "to be". This is the most simple and truthful thing any of us is capable of.
With Etre, my goal is to capture your cherished and important moments in an honest and truthful way through my lens. In short I strive to capture you...simply being you.



Here it is! A brand new year. 
Mr. Smith and I started it off in style with a bright, and early, and ever so book-y breakfast. we are. The Smiths at our prettiest hour. You're welcome.

Tradition holds that every New Years Day we wake up to: 
a yummy homemade breakfast AND the first gift of the year...a book. 
It's a beautifully simple tradition that has existed in my family since before I was born.

This year bacon, OJ, and blueberry bread pudding with almond whipped cream were on the menu.

 MMMMMMM! Is it too blatantly obvious that a healthier diet is 
NOT one of our resolutions this year?

Seeing that Mr. Smith and I are off to Tijuana tomorrow for a service trip, the timing of these gifts could not have been better. 
We've got 24 hours of car time to look forward to this week which equals plenty of time to READ!
It also means that I won't be answering any phone calls, emails, etc for a week... 
but will absolutely respond to them the day we get back.
