State Fair, Part 1: {Rodeos and Cowboys}

Hello, dears!

I went to our state fair for the first time with my family a few days ago, and got TONS of pictures! Because obviously. 😉 I have far too many to stuff into one post, so I’ll do at least one more collection after this. For now, enjoy some action photography of horses, lassos, and cute little cowboys 😀

Just Hatched {Chick Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

So we have this incubator for hatching eggs, and the 22 eggs from our chickens just hatched! Well, several of them, anyway. Some chicks are probably hatching while I type. 🙂 Of course I had to take pictures of their adorable fluffiness, so prepare yourselves for a mini cuteness overload!

September {Poetry & Pictures}

Hello, dears!

Today I have some more poetry + fall aesthetics for you. I’m really excited about both! I went outside just as the sun was setting the other day to get some September-y photos and then had fun editing to make them even more so. I interspersed a few pictures throughout the poem and added the rest at the end because I couldn’t bear to leave them out. 🙂

If you’re excited for fall, you might enjoy this post! If you’re not – well, maybe you’ll be excited for it now. 😛

Enjoy, my friends!

Etcetera #9

Hello, dears!

I’m back with another etcetera post today! If you’re new here, I use these posts to combine all the “orphan photos” and mini topics that aren’t quite big enough for their own post. It’s basically a virtual scrapbook of little moments from the past two months. 🙂

Enjoy this collection of summer adventures, memorable explorations, golden hour photos, etc.!

After the Rain: Garden Photography

Hello, dears!

These kinds of posts are some of my favorite to make, as you might know if you’ve been around here a while. 😉 Today I have a bunch of pretty nature photography for you, including butterflies, flowers, and raindrops found in our garden.

I took these photos the day after a glorious, answer-to-prayer rain finally came to end a summer drought. When you’re a farmer whose main key to success (the right weather) is totally out of your control, it teaches you dependence on God like nothing else, and also makes you so excited about rain that you’re riveted to the window, the weather app, and the rain gauge like they’re the most suspenseful movie ever. 😛

Everything was so beautiful and fresh the next day that I kinda just dropped everything and took a bunch of pictures. XD I hope you enjoy the results!

Vacation 2019 {Part 2)

Hello, dears!

I’m back with the second part of our recent vacation! I’m super excited about this post because 1) I got tons of pictures of the most gorgeous surprise party + my best friend Aria, and 2) I MADE A VIDEO! I sneakily took clips of most of the things we did that weekend and compiled them for Aria after I got back. I hope you enjoy watching that at the end of the post as well as browsing through the photos. 🙂

But before you get started, an announcement: My friend Amanda and I are starting a podcast about books! 😀 You can find out more about it and about us by listening to the first episode here. If you ever wondered what I sound like, well now you can know! 🙂 Also go follow Amanda’s blog while you’re at it, because it’s excellent. ❤

Now, onto the post. Please read this on my site for best formatting results.

Mule Rides & Sunsets

Hello, dears!

Remember when I used to post sunset pictures all the time? I don’t post them as much anymore, for some reason. But today I’m finally back with some more gorgeous sky paintings, as well as photos from a ride around the farm and more pictures of Eeyore, our pet donkey. 😀 I hope you enjoy this summer evening with me!

Of Donkeys and Magnolia Trees

Hello, dears!

Today’s post is going to be sort of an odd mix of photos which were taken on the same two evenings, so I decided to lump them together. 🙂 My family and I were mulching our flowerbeds about a month ago, and it happened to be during my favorite time to photograph, a.k.a. the golden hour. Knowing me, you’ll not be surprised that I couldn’t resist photographing many things (including pet donkeys, magnolia trees, and random weeds) in the golden light. 😉 Enjoy browsing through this summer evening!
