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.

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!

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!

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?

Etcetera #11

Hello, dears!

Yikes. I haven’t done an “etcetera” post in three months – my computer is about to burst with random photos! I went through these again and again and eventually couldn’t bear to narrow them down anymore, so prepare for the biggest photo dump I’ve posted on here in a while. O.o This may require a cup of hot something or a snack, if you’re that kind of person. 😉

Anyway, I’m rather excited about this mish-mashed collection of cute pups, jelly beans, self portraits, foggy photography, tangled plants, adventures, and aesthetic pictures. 🙂 I’ll keep my captions to a minimum so you can just scroll and enjoy.

(Also happy Valentine’s day; I almost forgot. XD) Let’s do this!

Adventures in Christmasing, 2019

Hello, dears!

My, it feels like a while since my last post. I like the new schedule. 😛 I’m also quite happy to be back and showing you guys some of the MANY photos I took over the past holidays.

We’re gonna cover weird cats, cute dogs, cute little humans, a pretty moon… actually most of these photos don’t look Christmasy at all; I just happened to take them at one of our four Christmas celebrations. 😉 Enjoy this collection of random bits of joy!

Best. Thanksgiving. Ever. :)

Hello, dears! Ahh, I finally get tell you guys about one of the highlights of my entire year: my best friend, Aria, got ENGAGED! And I got to be there! 😀 This was my first (and possibly last time) photographing a proposal, and OH MY, it was epic! Today I’m going to dump tons of photos of my beautiful friends while telling you guys the story from my point of view. 🙂 Make sure to check out Aria’s lifestyle blog and photo blog to see her posts first if you haven’t! AHHH YAYY. Every time I think of this, I smile, so I think my face is going to hurt by the end of this post. XD Anyway, are you ready for a long, excitement-filled post? Let’s do this!
