Last Days of January

I can't believe it's been a month already!!
Then again, I kind of can. 
It's been a good month; FIRST month so far! So much has already happened. 
How has your first month of 2013 been? 

Day 30
Everyone loves cheeseburgers. This is a fresh one, like eating home made; it's from a local restaurant that's a hometown favorite. I was running errands at 3:00pm and started crashing because I hadn't eaten anything all day - and had drank 2 cups of coffee. Yikes!

Day 31
:The Wood Chair:
I looked for something different for my last day. Found this cool chair that "appeared" on my Aunt's front porch. Since she recently moved in, she's still unpacking and pulling little treasures from the garage.
Happy 1 month of 365 completed!

*Had to edit this post because I forgot to post day 28....I can't keep them straight! ha ha

Day 28

Day 29
:Ready or Not:
Spent the afternoon at a local state park with my youngest sister. Discovered deer tracks, got muddy and drank in the fresh air.

The Weekend

Day 26
:Tools of the Trade:
What's your favorite lens? Right now I'm in love with my 35mm f/1.8 :)

*this pic is of the lens from my film canon camera. :)

Day 27
:Off Day:
Felt really bad yesterday, slept all day. Forgot all about taking a 365 until like seven, so I had to do sometime indoors. Nothing like a good old mirror sp to the rescue. I'm wearing my favorite "lounge" t-shirt and my comfy sweat pants. Nothing is better when you're sick! I feel so much better today though. Hope you are all staying healthy! :)

11/365 :Boys will be boys: & 12/365 :In the Woods:

SO happy when I got home from Bible study last night and was greeting by the early arrival of my hard drive! I immediately began transferring files over and editing away. I worked today but was able to edit at least two days worth of 365's so far. 

Two separate posts coming full of more photos from each of these two days!

Day 11

Day 12

A fitting title for my life right now. Been seeking the Lord on a lot of things and would appreciate prayers! 
I also know I'm behind on posting my 365's and I'll get to that this weekend. My computer hard drive is full so I have to wait for my backup to come in the mail...I cannot delete another thing off this computer. Trust me, I've tried. I scoured the archives to find junk that I could delete and I've already deleted it and filled it back up again. 
I have a lot of posts coming up soon and also a new blog design from the fabulous Hannah Rose ! Can't wait!

6/365 :City Lights:

Even though our town is slowing down from it's "factory age", it still is our town. A place I call home. I've grown to love the places, memorize the back roads and enjoy my local coffee shops. I know when the traffic is going to hit and when I can get through the downtown lights all at one time without having to stop. From our library with it's glass elevator to our beautiful parks, I enjoy living here. 

// So long ago, but not so very long ago....

Time goes by, time brings changes, you changed too
Nothing comes that you can't handle, so on you go
You never see it coming when the world caves in on you
On your town, nothing you can do

Day 6

5/365 :Morning:

I love my coffee. <3 
Nothing is better than that first sip of coffee in the morning! Just the aroma is enough to wake up your senses. 
My favorite creamer is Baileys Irish Cream. 
Do you have a favorite morning drink? 

Day 5

I couldn't decide between black and white or color. Thoughts?

4/365 Hardest Hue to Hold

Day 4, Hardest Hue to Hold

Nature's first green is gold, 
Her hardest hue to hold. 
Her early leaf's a flower; 
But only so an hour. 
Then leaf subsides to leaf. 
So Eden sank to grief, 
So dawn goes down to day. 
Nothing gold can stay.

-Robert Frost

Gorgeous sunset tonight. 

....and the sunrise this morning.

3/365 Breakfast and Jammie Day

Sawyer eating his "ceeral". Spent the day with this baby dude. It was cold outside so I let him hang in his comfy batman jammies for a while.

Day 2, 365

Playing with his piano.

Watching Toy Story 2 together. 

Wednesday, January 2, 2013


I took my sister to her piano lesson today and during the entire 30 minutes I was out in 10 degree temps at a park taking pictures. 
I love photography that much! 
When I get in my groove it doesn't matter what's going on around me. I forget the cold, forget the wind, forget how sore my feet are.
Me and Adele, out there capturing the world.

Oh. Adele is my camera's name. Yes, I'm one of THOSE photographers. 

This is my photo for the day but I've posted some other ones I took too. 
Day 2

Falls Park is beautiful no matter what time of year it is!!
