April Favorites

Pssstttt it’s May. April ending on a Sunday and May beginning on a Monday is pretty darn sneaky. Driving to work I knew the date, but sure enough, the first chance I get to write the date down, I’m beginning to pen “April”. Never fails. April was yet another good one. A wedding, plenty of parties, family gatherings, good eats, good reading, kinda sums it up. But to sum it up further, I’m going to share some of my favorites from the month of April. Favorite Book To be fair, Jubal…

Pic-a-Day: April 2017

In an effort to get back behind the lens more often and open up the creativity I once tapped into on a daily basis, I have thrown my hat in on a monthly photography challenge. Feel free to participate, whether you use Instagram, or are keeping pictures your phone/computer! Pictures I post will be taken with both my Nikon and my iPhone, and shoot any other device I happen to get my hands on. Here’s how it goes. I have listed below 30 different categories or tags. For each one, a photo…

Moo Cow Moo

Some days, you just need to look at cute pictures of cows to get you going. Something is in the air, my allergies are on overdrive and medicine is wearing off. Figured it was as good of a time as ever to share with y’all some pictures I took last week, with my new lens. These cows and calves sure look happy to be on a fresh pasture! And of course I had to make a stop up at Grandma and Grandpa’s to see what I could find there. Well hope…

Diamonds are Forever

Sixty years. The diamond anniversary they call it. Not sure if Grandma knew that this year, but she missed her chance at scoring yet another ring with a big ole rock. If you know my grandma, you can picture just about all ten of her fingers sporting at least one ring, but a few may even have a couple stacked. I ought to do a whole post discussing her rings. She has a story for each of them. Not all are worth huge sums of money, but those usually have…

Top 5 Friday: Sunrises

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…

The Goings: Filling My Days with the Four-leggeds

It sure has been a busy June. Already halfway through 2016. Unbelievable. But can’t complain too much about that. Halfway through just means I have had plenty of weekends so far in 2016 to have fun and toe the line with trouble! :) Figured it has been a hot minute since I shared pictures of cows with y’all. So today is the day, you’ll get to see lots of pictures. Disclaimer: not all pictures include four-legged mammals. Some contain no mammals at all. Also there may be a picture of…

Time Flies

Lordy, lordy. Where has the time flown to? Another baby sister of mine, and a cousin too, are a couple of months shy of setting off for Texas A&M! Am I ready for this? No. First off, how can it already be four years since I graduated from that beloved institution? Secondly, how can Maycee already be 18 and leaving home? Even with all of my disbelief at how quick the years have gone, I am more than a little excited for the journey the two of them are about…

Oh How Beautiful

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,…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 30

Merry Christmas folks! Yes, I’m a day late. But let’s pretend it’s Christmas morning again! Finally, I can post some of my favorite pictures I have ever taken! Earlier this month, I had several Christmas pictures shoots. But because I didn’t want to take the surprise away from the people receiving the Christmas cards, I refused to post any until after Christmas. Possibly over-thinking this, but ah well. Anyhow, I had the privilege and the pleasure of taking pictures of the Crisp family for the second year in a row.…

Only in San Antonio

Oh San Antonio, how happy you make me. While at the little sister’s basketball game last night, I happened to notice an odd picture in my news feed. Oddly enough, the picture of this wall was the only thing I could load in that gym. But I’m so thrilled I saw it. It had a note that for every post on Instagram with this featured and #ILoveTacos and #ILoveTacosSoMuch in the caption, $1 would be donated to San Antonio’s children charities. Not only do I love tacos and cool wall…
