mylovesaverb A good day to look to the sky. I'm sitting in the same room I endured countless radiation treatments. Well the first room. You sit and wait feeling like your bones are breaking. Tired is a taste in your mouth and daily you push through staring at two little faces asking you for hugs and when they can get "tookies" because they cannot pronounce "cookies,"for being good that day in the lobby. My mom used to sit with me and hold my hand. Sometimes she would try to make me laugh other times she knew I just needed silence. Sometimes the kids would come sometimes the sights of me were so ghastly they would stay home.
Now back to the second waiting room. Surrounded by glass so the nurses can see the horrid anticipation across our faces. Last stop with family.... and my text window lights up to see if I've made it here ok. Change of times. I would do just about anything for my mom to still be here this moment sitting next to me. Today is a talking day. Holding my hand. Calming my nerves. Answers, I hope. It was a beautiful sight on the way inside the hospital. I think my mom was telling me to be calm and she was here. Please let these hours go by quick.

mylovesaverb Caption given: Fun with Astrid and Tony at the Kropp's. Caption to me: it was such a fun day and night. I was at a luncheon with the mayor and the First Lady of Guatemala. The dinner at the Kropps tonight had the First Lady and a TON of familiar lovelies I have photographed so many times over the past few years I don't even need to write their names down any longer. Tonight they decided to make it a selfie and have me jump in. I loved it. The night was wonderful and it was great to talk and unwind at a shoot and not run from person to person. Tom and Astrid are amazing people who do so much for Charlotte. I can't wait to unwind again. The Kropps know how to throw a party and make you feel like you are home! #amazing #diannaaugustinephotography #fun #selfie #lovemyjob #mylife #charlotte #nc #clt #instadaily #instagood #bestofday #myfeetaretired #100daysofhappy #365dayproject #365 #instagrammers #iphoneonly #jj #f4f 5d

mylovesaverb The other night on the way home from a shoot I drove past water. The thing I'm most drawn to. Have a bit of free time coming up. A weekend all to myself I plan on taking some time and seeing some water just to sit and listen. Connect to earth and sky. No idea where to go and I want it pretty close. Maybe we can camp out at a beach or somewhere close. Or rent a cheap place for the weekend. Any recommendations welcome. Any water lake, ocean etc. #homelife #connectwithnature #peaceandquiet #beautiful #deepthoughts #all_photos #bestofday #sky #ocean #water #lakewylie #f4f #mylife #nature #sc #nc #photoaday #365dayproject #100daysofhappy #awesome #diannaaugustinephotography #fromthecar #skyline #horizon #lowlight #instadaily #sunset #instagood #iphoneonly 6d

mylovesaverb Now on to the other side of Mother's Day. Today I had a secret cry session behind closed doors. A tiny moment to reflect on how very much I miss my mom today. But not only do I mourn one mother I mourn two. My mom and my (aunt-dad) who was obviously not before the court married for well over a century to my mom. My "auntie" Rosemary. I grew up with two moms. I was well into my later years in life before they even came out to ME let alone most people. People, that did not understand in their time. I get it. And what I came away with being raised by two of the most awesome ladies I will ever know? How to love everyone regardless of race, religion, social status, amount in their bank account, as well as sexuality. They raised me to love how I want to be loved and always give back as much as I possibly could and to always put family first. Even if not through blood. My bio mom is top left. My aunt dad is in the photo with a very young me with my natural hair color. I celebrate a Mother's Day for them silent behind doors a few moments every year. They both passed early in life within a year of each other. I was barely 30. I learned more than a lifetimes worth of love over pancakes at 3am in ONE night with those two, than some will ever be lucky enough to experience. They divorced and my mom and I moved hundreds of miles away but up until she passed I saw Rosemary a ton. She was at my wedding. The birth of my second son. The first she was overseas unfortunately. They never let me go a day without knowing what I meant to them. My mom was my best friend my aunt dad was the one to run to when mom said no. The good and bad cop routine they had down. It hurts still they are not here but for everything I do in life they are. I love and miss you guys! ️️ thank you for teaching me how to love with all my heart and to never let people's judgements be my ending. You will forever inspire and empower my whole being. I hope I make you as proud as you have made me to be your daughter. Happy Mother's Day, I love you. - Bert 2w

mylovesaverb Happy Mother's Day to me! #iphoneonly for now photos of #thejackson5 #mylife #mybigfamily #myfamily #mykids #love #heart #happy
As per my request they finally took a family photo. They were all fighting until I'd say cheese. Mainly Jack needs a nap. ;) but here are my beautiful crew of kiddos. Dubbed the Jackson five. Some are not really kiddos anymore but will always be my babies. Being a mom is hard work. But the most important thing I have learned about being mom, it's not the money you spend or the things you give up overall that becomes what they remember. It's the time you are there for them to bandage a wound. Kiss a forehead. Hold a hand. Or to best have a hot cocoa at midnight and catch up on their week. It's the time you spend with them, the effort to be active in their lives. The memories and the love. It is the most important role I will ever have in life. I know I'm a hard ass and I do expect a lot when it comes to learning from mistakes, school is really important. College should be sought and worked towards. Rooms should stay clean and I'm a stickler for -family first before all else. But most of all I love to hear them all laugh. And making these memories that when all is said and done we all have, forever.
We took this same photo a few
Years ago reason the background sucks it was a retake in same spot, and I'll post that later this is a preview from the camera back.
Happy Mothers Day to me!
(L-R) Joey-19, Jon-16, Brandon-16, Jayden-15,and Jackson-7 ️️ #all_photos #awesome #100daysofhappy #instagood #instadaily #bestofday #jj #l4l #tagsforlikes

mylovesaverb So far #mothersday2015 has been low key. A funny card and some cool gifts and mother daughter time at #happyhour at #Starbucks they spelled Jayden's name wrong, and mine as well. Hah! I did get an espresso machine for a gift and made some a bit ago. Oh yes! Love it. Also some other household type things and now it's game time with kiddos. Might be off to a movie. But I think I'll surprise them with a redbox and kick it at home. I think spending time is my ultimate gift today even if some are being typical #teenagers :p #love #myfamily #all_photos #photoaday #igers #iphone #espressolove #awesome #bestofday #f4f #instagood #instadaily #jackson5 #mybigfamily #mom #mothersday #100daysofhappy #365dayproject #coffee #coffeeaddict #coffeeporn #selfie #fun #motherdaughter 2w

Lo-fi Dianna Augustine Photography
mylovesaverb My lens was active today. Afternoon started with a home tour -Build for the Cure (hosted by Ashland Custom Homes). 4 stunning homes with such wonderful organizations at each. Then it was a private shoot downtown. Finally, Big Bottles & Blues with Wine & Food Weekend. Every year I have a blast covering this event. Now I know the faces and the names and the lighting at Founders Hall is out of this world. Charlotte was out giving back in grand numbers! I was a smiling giggle box today. Back into my mode. My back is feeling a bit better and boy does that make a difference!! #societycharlottemagazine #societycharlotte #giveback #charlottefoodandwineweek #love #instagood #instadaily #instagrammers #clt #charlottefoodandwine #all_photos #bestofday #jj #diannaaugustinephotography #iphoneonly #mylife #nc #onassignmeny @societycharlotte #100daysofhappy #365dayproject #onephotoaday #wine #downtown #uptown #ansleyhomes 2w

mylovesaverb Tonight's #glutenfree #paleo #dairyfree dinner was pretty darn amazing. I also love my new plates! I wanted ones that popped on the lens and made us excited to eat it!People have a preconceived notion that due to my body type I do nothing but eat. Quite the opposite. Since chemo ages ago damaged my metabolism that still is very shaky (tests and retested and retested runs very slow) and all the hormones im required to take that leave me with 0 appetite. But I need to eat to pump up my metabolism. It's actually a struggle. I'm not the kind of chick who is afraid to eat steak and potatoes in front of my guy. I'm the kind that has to make an effort to eat regularly, hah! Slowly getting back to the balance of shoots. Gym. Training. And nutrition. It's a slow process with my back being a butthead! I'm limited to only walking. No weights and swimming has proved to cause horrible back spasms but I'm committed to not feeling like dirt all the time! #foodporn #myplate #mylife #mykitchen #steakandpotatoes #colorfulplate #igers #foodies #gfeats #gf #all_photos #instagood #instagrammers #instagram_hub #jj #l4l #yumm #instayumm 3w

mylovesaverb Weather was perfect for a party. #onassignment with @societycharlotte Hard Hats & High Heels (Habitat Charlotte). Not only the weather was wonderful but the conversation was joyful. Spoke to one of the first woman builders about the road this has taken. Not just here but all over the world. To think it started in our wonderful town. I love a room of powerful ladies all ready with a hug and encouraging word. Tonight was the kick off to the celebration of 25 years!! #habitatforhumanity #societycharlottemagazine #societycharlotte #clt #charlotte #queencity #all_photos #ganttcenter #womanpower #giveback #mytownrocks #bestofday #diannaaugustinephotography #f4f #happy #instagrammers #instagood #100daysofhappy #iphoneonly 3w
