I am still on my journey with 30 other photographers and I love every minute of it.   It really makes me think and stretch my imagination.  It is week 6 and the theme is … Bokeh: Let’s see some beautiful bokeh!  I thought about skipping this week because I really was not sure how I would get a good photo with bokeh.  Well I thought about it and decided to stretch myself and give it a try.  These may not be the greatest shots using bokeh, but I tried it and now want to try it again.  I feel that is a success for this week.

My boys are grown, so I enticed Gracie, my Yorkie,  to sit in front of the camera.  She loves it, can’t you tell?   This little dog has stolen my heart and everyone who comes in contact with her also falls in love.  She is the sweetest little girl  ever.  For my second picture, I tried to show that I love to cook.  I do not cook as much as I did when my children where small, but I still enjoy just being in the kitchen.  These are my absolute favorite measuring cups made by Crosby Taylor and used by Paula Deen.   I know what you are thinking, do you cook like Paula Deen?  The answer – NO!  I love to watch her show sometimes but Paula Deen,  I am not.

Every week under my post will be a link to another photographer, and she will link to another photographer, and it’ll keep going until it brings you full circle back here! It’s an incredible idea, and I am thrilled to be a part of this group of amazing ladies!! You don’t want to miss out on all of these posts, so be sure to keep clicking to see everyone’s photos!!

I am still on my journey with 30 other photographers from around the globe.   It’s a 52 week project where we have 52 different themes and each week we focus on one of those different themes to stretch our creativity and keep us actively engaging our love for photography!  This week our theme is Food – show what you love!  This was hard for me but I decided I would share my absolute favorite breakfast and snack food.  I love greek yogurt with homemade peanut butter granola and of course raspberries.   I love that this is a heart healthy food as well.  I love the stillness of the morning with a cup of java and a bowl of yogurt, fruit and granola.  It is such a special time to sit and count my blessings and be “thankful” for all the Lord has done for me.   It is a great way to start my day!! :)

Every week under my post will be a link to another photographer, and she will link to another photographer, and it’ll keep going until it brings you full circle back here!

Last week when it snowed I ventured out to take a few photos.  I was searching for signs of spring.  It has been a long winter and I was so excited today when the temps were in the 60′s.  It felt amazing outside and it is only going to get better.  The SON always provides for all our needs and today was just another perfect example of His love!  Oh Happy Spring, when you wash away those winters blues!!

It’s a 52 week project where we have 52 different themes and each week we focus on one of those different themes to stretch our creativity and keep us actively engaging our love for photography! Every week under my post will be a link to another photographer, and she will link to another photographer, and it’ll keep going until it brings you full circle back here!

I thought I would share a picture of my son and his new fiance.  Yes, they became engaged a couple of weeks ago and allowed me to take part and take some photos.  How exciting!  Doesn’t the look on their faces say it all!  ”We are in LOVE!” :)

Back in January I met Abigail, Meredith and Jackie at the Old Gilliam Mill in Sanford for an afternoon of smiles and lots of laughs.  These girls were such a blast to photograph and I am so thankful that they gave me the opportunity.  They all three attend ECU and plan to room together next year.  They wanted some fun pictures that they could use to help decorate their apartment.  It was a beautiful afternoon and we spent a lot of time together.  Abigail is my niece, so she had to put up with me and all my craziness.  Special thanks to Janet for helping carry all the props around.  I bet you are glad I did not bring a chair or bench! :)  Again, thanks girls for the great time.  Just another moment in time captured!!

Three Great Smiles

Oh to have so much fun with SILLY string!

Do you remember skipping rocks on the water?
