a few pretty pictures and my thoughts to boot.





1) Some weeks, I have to give photography a break. Then when I pick up the camera, I remember why I'm a photographer, why I take pictures, why I keep doing what I do. The images are nothing compared to the real thing, but it does freeze the moments in time when He chooses to display His glory. I love that.

2) Last night was fun, impromptu, but fun. We ate cheap Chinese food at a whole in the wall. Actually, we ordered out and ate it in the car with the windows rolled down. Then we drank coffee and shopped at Target for hours with my sweet friend, Kristina.

3) I bought my first "real" RED lipstick. I found a guide on finding shades for pale skinned brunettes...which is def me. I LURVE it. I also bought this crazy bright blue nail polish. I'll have to post pictures...Josh asked me why girls like to where make up. I told him it was due to the fact we like to make things pretty.

4) There was a recipe floating on Pinterest on how to make HOMEMADE PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE's. Could we say EXCIIIIIIIITED! Can't wait to try it.

5) I've been a reading machine lately. Are you on GoodReads? I am. Please add me here, so I can learn about new books to read! I just started "Shiver". Interesting so far...

6) And last, but not least...I'm officially addicted to Tumblr. I got on it one day searching for some inspiration and boy do I love finding beautiful and fun images to stare out. It is def a glimpse into my "quirky, dorky, nerdy, whateveryouwannacallit" side. ;-)

What's going on in your life today??

  7. I feel the same way about photography. Sometimes I feel like it's taking away from the moment so I have to put the camera down for a few days...then I remember how special it is to have those memories! P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
