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…

Top 5 Friday: Audrey Hepburn

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…

Most-Loved: January 2016

Did someone forget to tell January that it was supposed to feel like the longest month ever following the back-to-back holiday seasons? January sure did fly by. I’m not too sad to see it go though, and look forward to February being nice to me! After stewing over some of my favorite things from the month, I figured I’d share with you! To begin, of course we’ll start with the books I read in January, for my Reading Challenge 2016, and which were my favorites! 10 Lb. Penalty by Dick…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 27

Of late, I have been in the Pearl Brewery area taking pictures for Dhruvi and her blog, Stilettos And Sequins. We’ve been meeting there around 7:30 in the mornings, before work, so she can post on her site twice a week or so. I’ve not only enjoyed the experience of taking pictures there, but the atmosphere is so perfect. In the mornings, it’s quiet and beautiful. Even through the fog, we’ve had to deal with the past couple of times. There are several places to grab coffee or breakfast. Hopefully…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 24

It’s Fri-day, it’s Fri-day! < insert happy dance > Well it’s been way too long since I last had a Fave Photo Friday post! But I just had to share this one from a shoot I had earlier this month. I will have more to share of sweet, happy Mila, but that will come later when she turns the big 1 year old! But this picture. Y’all I absolutely adore black and white pictures. And this was a picture that accidentally got taken during an outfit change and camera adjustments!…

The Thunder Rolls

Day after day, it seems, rain and thunder storms are in the forecast. And I am not complaining! As I highlighted on Tuesday, we are so close to being completely out of a drought that has lasted over four years. So needless to say, rain several weeks in a row is a welcome sight no matter how many plans it changes and how many times I have to wash muddy jeans! Yesterday we ended the day with 1″ in the gauge and today it has played around for a bit…

Big City Turn Me Loose, Set Me Free

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…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 15

Shiner!!! My favorite Great Dane in the whole entire world. Besides just being an all-around sweetheart of a dog, she’s also been one of my favorite photography subjects. Would be the poster child for the gentle giants of the world. I’ve seen her play with the smallest of children and dogs alike. She’s a fan favorite and just by looking at this pictures you can only imagine why. I couldn’t quite decide whether I liked the color or black and white version better so I’ll let y’all decide so I…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 8

It’s 5 o’clock on Friday already?!?!?! Time really does fly but then again this week has been a busy one. There will be more posts about that when I finally get to catch my breath, but for right now, I bring you the eighth edition of Fave Photo Friday! I was lucky enough to be able to take engagement pictures for this absolutely presh couple last Sunday. Originally we were planning on Saturday afternoon; however, to my pleasure the dear Lord blessed us with some much needed rain. And not…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 6

Holy moly! Where the heck did this week go? No complaints, just amazed how with each year that goes by, time only goes by faster! This week’s Fave Photo comes from an engagement photo session I had the opportunity to do a couple of weeks ago. I love, love, love the pictures! But for some reason the simplicity of this one stands out. It’s a gorgeous ring that needs it very own picture to be appreciated! And again, who doesn’t love a soft black and white photo? I can’t wait…
