Blast From Seven Years Past

As I was checking in on this website, I happened to come across an old blog I used for a while in 2010. Had me laughing out of both entertainment and embarrassment. But one post had me reminiscing back to that time and place. Funny how even though almost seven years have passed, the message rings true. Therefore, I thought I would literally copy and paste that post from September 2010 and share it with y’all today. Hope y’all enjoy taking this adventure into the past with me for a…

The Journey Begins

Come back to me with all your heart. Don’t let fear keep us apart. Trees do bend though straight and tall; so must we to others’ call. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life. The wilderness will lead you to your heart where I will speak. Integrity and justice with tenderness you shall know. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life. You shall sleep secure with peace; faithfulness will be your joy.…

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…

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…

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.…

Thankful.

Contented. Grateful. Indebted. Overwhelmed. Pleased. Satisfied. Thankful. That I all am. I use the phrase “there aren’t enough words to …” often. I was about to begin this post with that phrase followed by “to describe how thankful I am for everything I have in this world and up in heaven.” But then I thought how silly of a phrase that is to say. There are millions of words in the English dictionary, surely there are enough. So I looked up “thankful” in the thesaurus, and the above were some…

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!…

Sunburnt in October

Occasionally weekends come around and I have no extensive plans. This is becoming less and less often, but when they do come around, I welcome them with open arms and try my damnedest to make the most of it! It was only a couple of weeks ago, I shared some pictures and happenings from the Commercial Heifer Validation. That was a fun day but a bit different from the usual working cow events. Like I summarized in that post and many prior, it doesn’t matter how many years I grow…

Where I’m From by Kymberlyn #NationalPoetryDay

This was not a planned post; I have another one of those coming later today! But early this morning I received a family group text from my little sister. She sent us a copy of a poem she wrote to turn into her 10th grade English teacher. And it was amazing. It amazes me how my pride in my family, particularly my sisters, continues to increase. Maybe one day you’ll be reading one of their blogs! I guess it’s no coincidence they had a poetry assignment today beings that according…
