Top 5 Friday: Sunrises

Top 5 Friday: Sunrises Sharing with y'all my most favorite sunrise pictures I have taken. sheerheart.org

Sunrises are one of God’s greatest gifts. As I get ready in the morning, my mind is moving even slower than my body. But boy my brain sure does turn on quick when I look outside and see the start of a beautiful sunrise. You can just tell when it is going to be good. All of a sudden, my brain is running. Where is my camera? In my closet? In my car? Where are my keys? How much time do I have? How long can I possibly wait before…

Out in West Texas

Out in West Texas - pictures and stories by sheerheart.org

Holy smokes, it has been almost two years since I took a trip to West Texas. If you are fond of breath-taking sunrises and sunsets, wide open spaces and limited internet access, add West Texas to your vacation list asap. While writing my Top 5 Friday: Western Novels post, I realized I hadn’t shared many of the pictures I took on my long weekend out in Alpine and Marfa. Who knows why I didn’t get back and immediately overload y’all with them. Nonetheless, I’m here now with a couple handfuls…

Lake Bound: Fun at Medina Lake

Lake Bound: Fun at Medina Lake - sheerheart.org

Before this time last year, I had gone to Medina Lake a whopping two times! Fast-forward a year and I wouldn’t be able to count as high as the times I’ve been since. Over this past year, I have come to love the lake in all its glory. Mornings at Medina Lake are by far my favorite. As I have mentioned before, sunrises are my proof that God exists. Both sunrises and sunsets at the lake are exceptional. Calm waters, fresh air, peace. On good weeks this time of year,…

Top 5 Friday: Audrey Hepburn

Top 5 Friday: Audrey Hepburn Sharing with y'all my favorite Audrey Hepburn films. sheerheart.org

Years and years ago, shoot getting close to at least 15 years, Sydney and I made the trip down to Grandma and Grandpa’s house to spend the night. A quarter-mile trip may not seem far, but I’m sure it felt far enough for my parents to get us kids out of the house for the night or if they were lucky, the weekend! Anyhow, we took our toothbrushes and a change of clothes and headed out. Once at their house, we put our things away in one of the bedrooms…

Oh How Beautiful

South Texas Sunrise

Well it should be no surprise that this South Texas girl doesn’t prefer temperatures below 60° F, let alone those in the 30s! However, even I must admit the winter season has the ability to create some of the most gorgeous sunrises. Monday morning, I was ready to get out of the door and off to work before 7. But I looking out the window above our kitchen sink I saw the beginnings of what looked like a decently pretty sunrise. As I started the car to warm it up,…

Big City Turn Me Loose, Set Me Free

03.27.2015 On Oats

Back in May of last year, I had posted a feature on some of my favorites from the great Merle Haggard, and here recently one of those tunes has stayed on the tip of my tongue. But no, I am not walking off of my job today! Ha, in fact other than my job, there has been a lot of change in my life here in 2015. The most important change of all, would be my living situation! I have completely moved out of the city and out to the…

Where’s Waldo? Where’s Alyx?!?!

Portrait of Self

Where have I been? Good question. I’ve been laying on a beach in the middle of the Caribbean,  climbing mountains over in Europe, oh yeah and I took a quick shuttle ride to the moon! Ok that may be too unbelievable of a story to satisfy you. How about this: moved into a new house, again; rodeo two weekends in a row for a total of four non-stop days; another wedding; another trip to the beach; baseball games; happy hours; and lots of miles traveled. No not near as exciting…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 20

05_Sunrise01262015

Wow! Edition No. 20. This series has become much more than I would have ever anticipated. Without planning on it, Fave Photo Friday has helped me step from behind the camera and show off some of my work. At the beginning I thought it would be a great way show off some of my work, while at the same time increasing traffic to my site. A couple of editions in I realized that this series was making a huge impact on me. Now more often than not I carry my camera…
