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.

Etcetera #14 {Green Sand, a Wedding, and Making Apple Butter}

Hello, dears!

Yay, it’s time for another random post! If you’re new to etcetera posts, here’s what we do: every few months, I collect a bunch of miscellaneous photos I haven’t shared and pack them into their own post. Basically this is a big mashup of mini adventures and pretty pictures to hopefully brighten your day as well as preserve memories that I can look back on. (My goodness, this is a long-sentenced intro.)

For some of these photos, we’ll have to go back in time to the days of green grass and fall leaves, but I figured you guys wouldn’t mind some sunshine. 🙂 Sound good? Let’s do this!

Corn Field Harvesting

Hello, dears!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I don’t know if I did because I’m scheduling this post ahead of time, hehe. Anyway, in keeping with late-November themes of gratitude and harvest, I have some neat farm photography for you today. Several weeks ago I drove out to the field my dad and brothers were harvesting and got some lovely shots in the fading light. ❤

Ready for some golden hour photos and farm trivia? 😀
