Creek Adventures, Terrible Puns, and a Marvelous Weekend

Hello, dears!

Last weekend was WONDERFUL because I got to see my best friend! 😀 Aria just got married (joy!) and moved fifteen hours away from me (sadness…). But recently she came to visit us with her husband Andrew, and Andrew’s best friend, Fleet. It brought back so many memories, like her proposal/engagement, her wedding, and the first time she visited our farm in 2018.

We had a blast exploring the farm, building a dam in the creek, making too much food, finding strange creatures, etc. Enjoy some of my favorite pictures!

Sunflower Field Sisters Photoshoot

Hello, dears!

Ahh, I love how these photos turned out! Megan and I have been planning this photoshoot ever since Dad first mentioned planting sunflowers months ago. Because, of course, aren’t sunflower fields for taking pictures in? Heh, no, he planted them as a crop for the doves or, more to the point, the dove-hunters. 😉

But this field did make for a marvelous photo location. As always, I took the pictures of Megan, and she took the ones of me. Ready for some sunny pictures?

Chains, Goats, & Flower Gardens {Golden Hour Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

How’s that for a random title? I was looking for something like, “A Post Where I Wander Around the Yard and Take Photos of Lots of Random Things at Golden Hour,” but that would be a tad long. It would have been helpfully explanatory, however, since that’s what this post is about. 😉

Walking around and taking pictures is honestly one of my favorite things. It’s so refreshing, plus I get to be creative at the same time. ❤ So yeah, I hope you guys enjoy taking this evening walk with me! 🙂

Field Work at Golden Hour {Hay Baling & Farm Life}

Hello, dears!

It’s baling season right now, so my dad and brothers are out pretty much nonstop during the day, cutting and baling and putting away the hay and straw we will sell later. Despite all the nature pictures I take, I don’t often make a post about field work or farm life like this for some reason. So I hope you enjoy today’s photoshoots!

Harvesting is one of the most interesting parts of farm work to watch, I think, and it’s also one of the most beautiful to photograph… particularly when you’re taking pictures during golden hour. 😉 Enjoy some peaceful fields, sunrays, and a little bit of farm trivia! 😀 Let’s do this.

A Girl and a Goat {Extreme Cuteness Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

EEEP, if you need some cheering up today, I got a smile for you! Or maybe a couple dozen. I am seriously SO excited for this post – this may be my favorite photoshoot yet. I love everything about it.

The other evening I took some golden-hour pictures of my youngest sister with her beloved, adorable dwarf goat and… *flails* I love these photos so so much, and I hope they’ll make you guys grin as much as they did for me! (Warning: this may make you want a dwarf goat and/or a little sister. 😛 )

Okay. Here we go. Get ready for some cuteness.

Etcetera #12 {Barn Dancing, Cute Pets, Farm Life, Etc.}

Hello, dears!

Welcome back to another round of random photos where I raid my File Explorer and have fun with editing styles. On the menu for today is Nellie the Cutest Goat, our church barn dance (IT WAS AMAZING), people pictures, and vacuums and muffin tins. 😀

Buckle up because we have a BUNCH of photos to get to today. I got tired of narrowing it down any further, so enjoy what is basically a mashup of a bunch of little posts! Here we go!

In Bloom {A Collection of Springy Floral Photos}

Hello, dears!

It’s cloudy out my window right now, but it’s also GREEN. Spring is springing where I live, and I, not surprisingly, have thusly taken many photos in the past weeks. I’ve ended up with quite a few flower photos that are too pieced-up for their own post and too overwhelming for an Etcetera post, so I shall dump them on you here. 🙂

If you’re in need of a little color and spring joy today, have some pretty photos! I hope you enjoy. ❤

Meet Nellie {Baby Goat Cuteness}

Hello, dears!

Just in case you’re tired of bad news, dire warnings, and thinking that the world is falling apart… here’s a little post to remind you there’s still happiness in the world. 🙂 In this case, it comes in the form of my little sister and her absolutely adorable new pet.

Carmen just bought a baby dwarf goat (so she’s extra tiny), named her Nellie, and HELP. THE CUTENESS OVERLOAD IS REAL. I will say that I normally don’t care for goats, but I’m not sure it’s possible to dislike Nellie. She’s the friendliest, sweetest goat I have ever encountered – she’s basically a dog or a cat – and… well, the pictures will have to do the rest. 😉

Ready for a smile?

Explore with Me 004 | Nature Art

Hello, dears!

Phew, I’ve been thinking about this post for months, so I’m quite happy to finally be making it! This might be my favorite idea so far in this series. *rubs hands*

In case you’re wondering, I started this series to motivate myself (and you!) to get outside and have something interesting unique or creative to do out there. 😉 So I take you with me on a walk around our farm, adding in a little twist or art/photography prompt that you can try too, where you live.

Today we’re going to collect bits and pieces of nature and arrange them into beautiful art! If you love being creative but don’t really consider yourself an artist, I think you’re going to enjoy this one. 🙂

Let’s go!
