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…

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…

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…

Feeling Sisterly

Howdy, howdy! Oops I’m still in full on Aggie mode after my trip to College Station this past weekend. But luckily I didn’t forget that I wanted to post the rest of these pictures from my little impromptu photo shoot with my little sisters two weekends ago. I have always known that I am extremely blessed with some wonderful sisters. All three of them are intelligent, funny, beautiful and unique. I really couldn’t have asked for better best friends in life. We keep each other entertained that’s for sure. They…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition 5

I’m back! Real work life has been busy to say the least, but the greatest news ever is that I have been taking more photos than ever! This past weekend I had a couple coming out to the place to take some engagement pictures. SOOO who better to use as models to get in the photography-frame-of-mind than my beautiful, little sisters? Below may be one of my most favorite pictures I have ever taken, but I probably am partial due to my choice of models! Don’t worry, soon I will…

KAT: Kymberlyn Amy Tschirhart est. 2000

First off: ~HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY KYMBERLYN~ Ok now let’s rewind 14 years back. The year was 2000, I was a scraggly, little fourth-grader with a bowl-cut. But I was excited. i remember asking Mrs. Stearns several times if anyone had called my school to let me know if my littlest sister had been born yet. This was no where close to my first rodeo with little sisters being born. After all I am the oldest sister of four. But this was a little different. I was at the ripe-old age…
