There and Back Again

Hey guys!

Boy, it feels odd to be using a mobile device for this…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I am here to update you on a few things plus explain where I am. You know how I was in Texas a week or so ago? Well, I’m back in Texas.

We drove back up here on Friday night and arrived at about 7:00 in the morning. It was long, but not too bad tbh.

Why did we go back to Texas so soon?

It is a sad topic for me to talk about…but our dear friend Uncle LorimerΒ  [not out real uncle, we were just all very close!] —finished the race, and was given the crown of glory on December 15th.

The fight was a short one, but full of so much. He was always so strong, and tough… and especially towards the end was in a lot of pain. It is a comfort that his pain is now over, and he’s with the Savior he loved so much.

But it’s very sad for all those left behind. Most especially for his family… Auntie Jeanelle, Hope, Sarah, David, and Kathryn.

 

I love them all so much, and our family grieves as well as rejoices with them.

So, I guess that explains where I’m at and the neglect of this blog at the moment.

 

But lest you think I haven’t been doing anything in the picture department…I still find time to take a few on my camera every day. Sorry though! You only get terrible phone pictures bc I didn’t bring my computer. πŸ˜’πŸ˜­πŸ˜£πŸ˜‚

[also this may not even work. Im not much of a phone posting junkie, or expertπŸ˜‰.]

But if that photo worked…It’s supposed to be a photo of a freelensed scene. I am now really loving free lensing so you’ll be seeing more of that.

This next picture is of baby Timothy who was at the A’ s house for a few days with his mama, big brother, and sister.

I will be going back home in a week and flying [my first time in 5 years!]. I will be spending Christmas without my whole family—but with my best friend. It is an odd thought, but not unwelcomeπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚. I am looking forward to celebrating it with the A’s.

This is uncle Lorimer’s obituary…sorry that it’s backwards. 😐

And here’s a Starbucks drink I got [the white chocolate raspberry hot chocolate] —which was good.

Anyway… since I’ve dissolved into a rambling and random state, I will bid you a very fond farewell.

P.s I will announce the winning drawing when I get back. The poll will be open until then. So if you haven’t already, go vote! I will also start drawing it after I announce it. 😎
