This was my breakfast a few weeks ago.  The light was beautiful, so I took a photo.  Thought I’d share.  🙂




Sorry I didn’t post last week.  So I’ll post two this week to make up. 🙂

Last week we got about a foot of snow.  And it was about 8*F out, too, which makes it really hard for this girl to stay inside and not take photos!  But when they were saying “frostbite in less than 10 minutes” on the radio, I figured I should stay inside.  🙂

So here are a few I grabbed from the front porch and windows. 


Love the sun!


Aren’t all the lines from the wind blowing cool?  And the light.  OH.  THE.  LIGHT.  Photographers like light.  🙂




More lines  🙂



Today in Photos

Happy New Year, everybody! 

Long time no see!


Sorry ‘bout that.

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to post more often.  So I have determined to post at least one post a week.  Not too daunting, eh?

So to start:  today in pictures.  I (finally!) brought my camera to work, and took some shots while I was there.  (And I had a little fun.  So don’t mind the hair-product-pictures, o.k.?)

So these start in the morning, and go through the day.









































P.S.  What do you think of my silver and turquoise nails?



Dusk is falling.  It’s one of those snowy dusks, which translates into everything just turning blue.  It’s really pretty.  Especially when viewed while drinking a dairy-free o.k.-sugar mocha.  Yes, I have FINALLY cracked the code and found out how to make a (see above).  Maybe I’ll tell you sometime.

Now I am (should be making) dinner.  And I should be posting about our lovely Thanksgiving (and my first 5k!) and our Winter trip to Branson (we got snowed in), but instead I feel like just posting what’s up.

Today I gave Lucy a shave.  May seem like an odd thing to do, what with the cold weather and all, but she was in desperate need.  So I gave her a good shave.  She still isn’t talking to me.  And by that I mean that when I call her, she doesn’t come, since I called her when we were cutting her hair, and she resents that.  Or thinks that I still have the clippers hidden somewhere.

I also baked a pumpkin that I had, cause it needed to be cooked so it didn’t rot.  Last time I cooked a pumpkin, Lucy helped herself to some, and it turns out she LOVES pumpkin.  And I found out that pumpkin is good for dogs.  So this time around I gave her some.  She wants more.  But man was she begging while I was working on it.  Those little puppy eyes.  Oh-so-cute!

So now I am cleaning up the kitchen and prepping dinner (fish).  And rocking out to music.  Everything’s better when done to music.

And my mocha’s cold now.  Oh well.  Still tastes good.

Off to dance and cook,


Snow Down at the Creek

It snowed yesterday.  It snowed, and snowed, and snowed. 

Needless to say, the world is a rather white place today.  My siblings and I went for a walk down to the creek.  If you remember this post, I love the creek.  I had never seen it in it’s snowy garb, so I was pleased to see it this way.  I hope you enjoy!




Gettin’ over the log


Following Drakie


















A photographer’s been here 🙂






On Thursday my aunt and two youngest cousins on my dad’s side came down to spend a few days at our home.  There was lots of jokes, snow ball fights, games, and Nerf gun wars.  And talking.  And eating, of course.  🙂

We also celebrated Noah’s birthday while they were here, since it was last weekend and we didn’t get to celebrate it then.  Happy birthday, Noah!  It’s hard to believe that he is 15 already…

I didn’t take quite as many photos as I would have liked to, since I was still feeling under the weather.  Anyways, here are a few from their stay.


Drake playing Hannah’s ukulele (he makes me laugh)


Looking at books


Getting ready to sing (I really liked how these turned out, so there are several :))






Drawing for “Cranium


We had just picked up “Cranium” at a resale shop a few weeks ago, and got to try it out this weekend!




Hannah really enjoyed getting to snuggle with Lucy


Ready for the Nerf war (or tag – I think they were playing Nerf tag)


Their “cool-guy” poses


These next few are just plain fun with cousins 🙂






Hannah and Lucy snuggling again



Thanks for coming!  And come back soon!  ❤


Extra 6 Lenses Photos

The photos that didn’t make the cut – for one reason or another.  But I like some just as well as the one I chose.  Tell me what you think, and which photo is your favorite.  This week’s theme is horizontal lines.


(1) This one made it on 6 Lenses


(2) With my shadow


(3) I love barbed wire


This one and the next one don’t really fit the category, but I like them. 🙂




(4) This one and the next one don’t have the perfect focus, but I like them none the less (wow, what a schooling on what I like!)




So, which one(s) do you like?
