Long Abscense = Long Update

Hello!!!!

I am here after almost three months of MIA. Did you miss me?

I missed this.

I had {and keep on having} so many things happening, in May and now into June.

Most all of them are exciting and happy things {oh wait, ALL of them are!}.

This season has been by far the best of my whole life.

I can’t remember a time that’s been this amazing for me!!!!

I feel like these words aren’t showing you how happy I am!!!!

I AM LITERALLY THRILLED. MY LIFE IS ONE HAPPY CHRONICLE AT THE MOMENT.

A Few of my Favorite Things

Hello!

This post will be answering a few ‘about me’ questions. Most of it is just in regards to a few things I like or use. If y’all would like, answer the questions for yourselves in the comments! That would be fun…

Question #1. What is your favorite flower?

IMG_6853.JPG
Answer: Hydrangeas. 

 

Question #2. What is currently your favorite kind of tea (substitute for beverage if you don’t like tea)?

IMG_6802.JPG
Answer: Hibuscus Ginger Organic tea, by Tao of Life. 

Question #3. A favorite beauty product?

IMG_6809.JPG
Answer: Maybelline New York, The Colossal Volum Express mascara. 

 

Question #4. Apples or oranges?

IMG_6824.JPG
Answer: I love apples! Especially sweet, crunchy, organic ones 😀 . 

 

Question #5. One book you read recently that you would highly recommend?

IMG_6828.JPG
Answer: Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen. This book kept me on my toes. And frustrated! 😉

 

Question #6. What is something you baked recently that turned out?

IMG_6827.JPG
Answer: Gluten-free biscuits. Laugh all you like, people. I am gluten-free and thoroughly enjoy finding new things to try. They may not be those lovely fluffy southern thingys y’all are used to…but they still taste good!

 

Question #7. One book you read as a younger kid and still love?

IMG_6831.JPG
Answer: Keeping Holiday, by Starr Meade. I love this book so much! It’s a great read, and we read it when I as younger as an ‘out-loud’ family book. It’s clean, religious, and is a somewhat ‘allegory’ novel. 

 

Question #8. What are your favorite therapeutic products?

IMG_6832.JPG
Answer: Essential oils! I love Edens gardens for our diffuser, and Doterra for putting in mint chip ice cream 😀 . 

 

 

Question #9. Show one photo you recently took that you like?

IMG_6778.JPG
Dogwoods!

Little announcement~My next post will be a writing post, on…WRITER’S BLOCK! Because I haven’t done a post on writing in a little while. Also, my writing blog is going to be doing a fun little post. I will use two writing prompts to begin a fun little story. It’s not up yet, but when it is–you can check it out here: http://midnightwriter2000.blogspot.com/

Patchwork Quilt| A Life Update

IMG_5802.JPG

 

And what does that lovely header for this post mean? Why is there a roadway? Well…friends, I went somewhere. But that will come later. I will start with a semi-comprehensive look at the past…two or three weeks? Here we go.

We had a very random snowfall that was very tiny, and melted almost immediately. I did take a photo of a plant in it though…

IMG_5580.JPG

And then a day or two after that, I got the opportunity to try out slow sync flash. You basically set a slow shutter speed (I mostly did 2 seconds or 2″) and spin in a circle while the flash fires. It makes for VERY weird photos but is nonetheless quite fun to do. And it’s especially cool if you’re outside at night.

This is not edited. This type of photography just results in looking this way. Cool, huh? Ignore how dumb I look 😉 .

You can also use objects. I did this one in my studio/office.

IMG_5616.JPG
I love how the flash freezes the water.

And then after a few days it was time to go to a conference! This is photo from in the car.

IMG_5632.JPG

Then we got to the hotel…which wasn’t awful. But I still don’t really like it.

IMG_5728.JPG
And this is a room at the conference building that I like hanging out in. It’s sort of become a cliche for me, since we’ve gone for three years now.

And snacks and drinks were provided at the break times.

And outside the building there is this lovely bed of pansies.

And then there was this trip home. And we were all exhausted.

More Recently…

On Saturday, we were at the YMCA–when mom told us we were going on vacation NOW. We hadn’t packed. We didn’t even know where we were going…and our family of eight had two hours to pack. And one of those hours we would have people over. But…those people happen to be the family I am getting to do a newborn photo session with. So this was my first opportunity to get a peek at baby Eva Marie. And she’s adorable! I think the session is on Friday. I’m going for a studio look.

Look, she has hair! 

Our 1 and a 1/4 day ‘vacation’ was to our grandparents house. One night my grandpa showed me his father’s old film camera a bunch of other cool stuff that went with it. Sometime, I want to try film.

The I decided to try an interesting technique using a tiny fisheye lens.

No photoshop required!

Then we were home. And I took some pictures of our red bud tree.IMG_6006.JPG

Then some photos of unnamed one 🙂

And that’s pretty much all that I’ve been up to for fun.

What have y’all been doing?

Have you ever gone on unexpected vacations?
