Amazing Love

I’m forgiven because You were forsaken,
I’m accepted, You were condemned.
I am alive and well, Your spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.

Amazing love,
How can it be
That You, my King, should die for me?
Amazing love,
I know it’s true.
It is my joy to honor You,
In all I do, I honor You.

~Chris Tomlin

My parents, Dustin, and I drove out to a cemetery in Rockport yesterday because we heard it was full of wildflowers. And it was. A beautiful sea of yellows and blues. I took around 600 photos! When we were about to leave, I saw two wooden crosses and walked around to the largest one to get a good photo. Then I saw the heart-shaped headstone nearby. Wow. What a perfect photo op for this weekend. God is good and His love is amazing indeed.

Have a happy and blessed Easter!

Can you believe that we only have three months until Christmas? I can’t say that I’m entirely thrilled about that. It means that we’ll more than likely have another childless holiday season, which is very hard on me. It also means I have very little time to get totally ready for the shopping season! I don’t mean shopping for us. I mean shopping from us. Last year was quite busy, and I expect this year to be even more so. I’m looking forward to it, but I’m a little scared. 🙂

We’re members of SATEAM on Etsy, and the team will be hosting a fabulous promo giveaway thing for the holidays. We’ll be giving away a charm bracelet that has charms handmade from many of our team members, yours truly included. Here is my contribution.

What about you? Are you ready for the holidays?

Boy’s Best Friend


Did you have a merry Christmas? Ours was pretty sweet. We spent the day at my parents’ house where we exchanged gifts and then I helped my mom cook dinner. We had dinner with Uncle Cracker (chiropractor, you remember) and his family. The cutie pie up there is my Boy Cousin hugging Trixie.

We brought the dogs with us, as they had not been to my parents’ new house yet (packing up two dogs isn’t all that fun!) and we didn’t want to leave them home alone all day on Christmas! Yep, they are spoiled. Though not that spoiled, since this year they did not get any Christmas presents. We usually get them one. Trixie loves tearing up wrapping paper. She still got to tear up paper, so I’m not quite sure she missed the gift.

Trixie and Boy Cousin made fast friends. They had lots of fun playing tug of war. That dog NEEDS a kid to play with! Hopefully she’ll still be playful when our kid is here and old enough to play. Baby Girl Cousin (the cute one that has a future in photography, you remember) didn’t quite know what to make of the dogs. She seemed like she wanted to pet them, but then she’d touch them with just one finger, and only for a brief second. It was funny. Then she got really mad when Trixie licked her face. Can you blame her? I’d be mad too! Trixie is such a little nurturer. It’s a shame she can’t be a dog mommy… she’d be an excellent one.

I’ve got some gorgeous family, don’t I? I’m glad we spent the evening with them. They’re lots of fun!

From me to you

Merry Christmas!

I hope you have a blessed day.

A Little Buggy

That’s how I feel right now. Or a lot buggy, really.

*sneezes*

I caught my hubby’s cold. Achoo. My throat hurts. Can I cry now?



I’m not feeling very thankful today. I’ll be thankful when the crud goes away. I am thankful for my man. And my macro lens. Both of which help me photograph cool bugs. (Though only one of which helps me catch bugs. Don’t worry. I love him anyway.)



What are you thankful for today?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a little something to get you in the mood

I thought this was really cute!

Weekend Shapshot #1


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Or at least a little. I’m trying out a new photo meme to see if it helps me both use my camera more and blog more. This one doesn’t have a set theme, you just post a photo every Monday!

This weekend we put up our Christmas tree, so I figured that would be the perfect photo to share this week. Yep, I have a boring tree! It’s all silver and red. White lights only. I grew up with a tree full of colored lights and a large collection of mis-matching ornaments. It was cool, but I guess you can call this tree a little bit of a rebellion. LOL I did it my way! Yes, I know the bow on the top is too small for the tree. I need to figure out something else.

Hope you enjoy! *grin*
