August Favorites

August Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Whew August was wonderful, and this post is about to be full of my August favorites! Being my birthday month, August is always one to look forward to, even though it marks the endish of summer. Not only did I have many favorite things, but I also had a blast making memories. Whether it was spending the weekends at the lake with family and friends, working and hauling cows from sunup to sundown, or hanging out with the family and “old peeps”, August brought me so much to be thankful…

Birthday Fun / Turning Twenty-seven

Birthday Fun / Turning Twenty-seven - sheerheart.org

With the birthday fun had yesterday, I felt the urge to share some of my happiness. After all, I’m trying to milk my birthday week for all it’s got. Spent last weekend at the lake, had supper cooked for me on Monday evening, birthday celebrations at work and home yesterday. What more happiness will this week bring me?!? Goodness, the lake was absolutely beautiful this past weekend. With school almost back in session and football/volleyball started, their absence was noticeable. In just a couple of days, we’ll be back out there making…

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…

July Favorites 2017 curated by sheerheart.org

HAPPY AUGUST! One of my most favorite months out of the year, I wonder why ;) But before we get deep into August, here are my July favorites!

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,…

June Favorites

June Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Before I get to my June favorites, I want to wish you a Happy 4th of July!!! Holidays that fall during the middle of the week make work so interesting. I had off this past Friday, but worked Monday and then we have today off. So it has made for a weird week. Actually it has felt like a long vacation. Especially since most of my time has been spent at the lake over the last few days. No better place to be this time of year! June was one…

Photo Share: Family Vacation to the Beach 2017

Family Vacation to the Beach 2017 - sheerheart.org

Almost two weeks later, I’m back at work, no sand in sight, hair no longer blowing in the wind off the coast. But I’m here nonetheless. Our family vacation to Port Aransas was a relative success, if you don’t count the wind keeping us at the pool most of the time. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it, I didn’t tote my camera around a whole lot. I unplugged for the most part and enjoyed the sights and happenings. But I seriously wish I would have taken…

Farm Feature: Cow Pictures

farm feature: My Favorite Cow Pictures I Have Taken - sheer heart.org

Since the beginning of sheerheart.org, I’ve blogged about a couple of things more often than others, one of those being cow pictures. It should be no surprise to anyone who knows me. Growing up in the country with a herd of cattle around me most often, I have loved cows since I can remember. That love has grown only stronger. A couple of nights ago, when I was brainstorming post ideas, I realized it had been awhile since I looked through the cow picture folders on my computer. I recently had a…
