Goats, Rabbits, Dogs, Etc. {Adventures in Housesitting}

Hello, dears!

I recently had the opportunity to housesit for some friends. I’d never done that before, so I was excited to “play house” and live by myself for a few days. It was fun! And strangely quiet, after living with six other people. 😛 It was nice to come home and be with my family again, though, where there’s always something going on. 🙂

Most of my responsibilities concerned feeding the animals, so of course I had to get a bunch of photos of them while I was at it. If you like cats, dogs, goats, chickens, rabbits, or all of the above, you might enjoy this post!

Let’s go find some cuteness.

State Fair, Part 2: {Chainsaws, Pigs, and Unicycles}

Hello, dears!

I’m back with the second part of our adventures at the fair! After the girls saw the rodeo, we joined up with the boys and visited several other shows and attractions. Plus we got some food, because how is it a fair without food? 😉 Enjoy some shots of a chainsaw artist, a unicycle rider, racing pigs, and more!

Vacation 2019 {Part 1}

Hello, dears!

Last week, my family and I went on vacation to North Carolina. We had a lovely time, both staying at our vacation house, and visiting my friend Aria and her family (but more on that next time 😉 ). Today I’m going to be posting about the first couple of days, including some photography from the beautiful space where we stayed and a bunch of pretty pictures I got when we went boating on the lake behind the house. Enjoy!

Cousins, Pools, and Ice Cream Spills

Hello, dears!

We recently took a trip to our old farm for several events, including attending a funeral, swimming, and going out to eat. I didn’t take pictures of the first, but I did of the other two. 😉 If you like swimming, ice cream, or summer adventures, you might enjoy this post! I’d love to hear about what summer adventures you go on after you finish!

And since that’s apparently all the intro this thing needs, let’s get straight into the post. 😉

Etcetera #8

Hello, dears!

Oh my, it has been MONTHS since my last “etcetera” post! My extra photos have been piling up and nagging me like an itch in the back of my mind, so I finally sat down and sorted them all out for my blog. 😉 I hope you enjoy these many random pictures ranging from lightning to rope swings to disgruntled cats. Have fun browsing!

Sweet Sixteen Barn Dance

Hello, dears!

Remember how one of our friends had a barn dance at our shop last year for her birthday party? Well, this year we did it again and it was SO much fun! The shop was a mess, so it was a good thing we had a dance motivating us to clean it up. 😛 I took plenty of pictures throughout the preparation and actual party, of course, and I hope you guys enjoy browsing through them!

A Day in the Life…

Hello, dears!

“Day in the life” posts are so fun to read, aren’t they? Since I enjoy reading them, I thought I’d better get on it and make one myself. 🙂  Instead of documenting an actual entire day, I reconstructed what a normal day looks like for me. Well, okay… many days I’ll do errands, go to church-related events, get together with friends, etc. but this is what I usually do on “stay at home days.” 🙂 I hope you guys enjoy!

{Weathered Wood}

Hello, dears!

So, remember the old shed in this post? Well, I took a bunch more pictures of it and decided to post them today. All these photos will be in black and white because I thought it fit with with the age and structure of the subject, but don’t worry – it was foggy and dreary, so you’re not missing much color. 😉

Ready to explore with me?

~Make Your Own Sunshine~

Hello, dears!

The other day, I asked my sister if she wanted to do a photoshoot together, but she thought it would be best to wait till it was sunny instead of foggy. I thought, “Oh well, I guess I’ll have to make my own sunshine.” 🙂 So I gathered up my camera and tripod and spent a couple of hours taking “selfies.” HAHA! It was really fun, although extremely difficult sometimes to get a clear picture with the self-timer.

I also discovered that it’s hard to give a real smile when you’re just staring at a camera and not a person. And that I really don’t know what to do with my hands when I’m posing. :[] Despite my un-photogenicness, I hope you enjoy seeing the poses and locations and editing techniques like I do when I browse other people’s photoshoots! 🙂 Continue reading
