Etcetera #16 {Alpacas, Potatoes, & River Adventures}

Hello, my friends!

Welcome back to another scrapbook of random photos and behind-the-scenes shots from the past few months! I’m including some phone photography this time, because… these ducks deserve to be on my blog. *nods* I’ll keep the introduction short since we have a lot of photos to get through, but you guys know how this works. Warm up your scrolling fingers and enjoy some cute animals, pretty skies, bright flowers, etcetera!

A Cheerful Sunflower Field Photoshoot

Hello, my friends!

The sunflowers are back! Remember this sisters photoshoot Megan and I did last year in Dad’s sunflower field? Well, we’re planning on doing another photoshoot tomorrow, but I wanted to post these summery flower pictures in the meantime.

If you need a little sunshine in your day, keep reading! Also feel free to use these photos for your wallpaper or lockscreen if you so desire. Okay. Onwards!

In Which We Set Up a Flower Truck

Hello, my friends!

Ah, I think you guys are really going to enjoy the pictures today. Remember Dad’s aesthetic mint green truck from my birthday post? Turns out it makes a wonderfully eye-catching flower truck! Mom has been growing so many flowers this year that we have too many to display ourselves, so she started a little flower stand at the end of our road!

One day we hope to sell flowers at a farmer’s market or in a better location since we’re kinda in the middle of nowhere, but it’s been fun letting people pick up the lovely flower bouquets Mom makes for now. Enjoy some cheerful, summery pictures!

Chicks, Goats, and More Cuteness

Hello, my friends!

Here’s your daily dose of cuteness if you’re in need of a smile. 🙂 I recently housesat for some friends who had a bunch of cute animals to take care of – goats, chicks, chickens, and a dog and cat. (Well, and fish. But no pictures of the fish or the cat for some reason.) I hope you guys enjoy scrolling through these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them for you!

Etcetera #15 {Doughnut Making, a Spring Festival, and Old Hotels}

Hello, my friends!

Get ready for a LOT of pictures today because I haven’t done one of these miscellaneous photography posts in five months! I still haven’t shared small adventures from way back in December, like making doughnuts and going on a rather spontaneous road-trip. Not to mention more recent events like a spring festival our friends put on with barn dancing and competitions and lots of fun memories. And, of course, plenty of pretty nature and landscape photos as usual. 🙂

Enjoy this mixed-up collections of moments from the past half year!

Birthday Explorations {a Green Truck Ride}

Hello, my friends!

Last week for my birthday, I chose to go on a Green Truck Ride around the farm and it was PERFECT, ahh! “Green truck rides” are kinda a lost tradition in our family. Dad has this vintage, mint-green Chevy truck he built that’s perfect for exploring our land in, but for the past four or five years it’s been out of repair. He finally fixed it up and we got to drive around at golden hour in perfect weather for my 21st birthday! It was an absolutely lovely evening.

Enjoy some happy photos of a delightfully flower-lined path, a soggy dog, and golden hour goodness.

Forest Portraits & Sunflower Fields

Hello, my friends!

This post is going to be kinda weird. I have two completely different photoshoots for you guys today: a collection of self-portraits I took back in January on a foggy/cloudy day, and a cheerful, summery set of sunflower photos left over from this sisters photoshoot. I love them both and I’m excited to finally share them together since they’re almost too small to post individually.

Enjoy some out-of-season photos! 😀

The Bunnies Are Back {Extreme Cuteness Warning}

Hello, my friends!

As promised in my last post, I have a couple of new pets to introduce you to today! We recently got two sweet lionhead rabbits – one buck and one doe – that we’re going to breed. Ahh baby bunnies! I can’t wait! So anyway, I went out and took a bunch of pictures for you guys the other day, including photos of Basil and Lavender because they’re still cute too. 😉

I haven’t done a bunny post in ages, so I’m excited for this one! I hope you all enjoy. ❤

Farewell, 2020 {My Year in Review}

Hello, my friends! (New year, new greeting. 😉 )

Well, 2020 is behind us. It felt like we’d never be able to say that there for a while, huh? 😛 Anyway, today I’m back with my annual year-in-review post! This has been the weirdest, and in many ways the hardest year of my life, but it’s also taught me gratitude in a way normal years just can’t. So here’s a recap of lessons learned, highlights of the year, my favorite books and music, blog stats, and goals/resolutions. 

This year I also have an exciting announcement + a little survey for you guys if you’re interested! Okay, this is going to be a loooong post, so let’s get started.
