Eclectic & imperfect awesomeness


Life Learnin’

We went on a field trip to the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir . We all really enjoyed this trip. We’ve enjoyed this study in culture club (India & Hinduism). We are looking forward to the Holi Festival & Transcendent Deities of India @ Carlos Museum .

Breathing In

Breathing in life. We took a hike with some friends yesterday. Amicalola Falls. It’s said to be one of the 7 wonders of GA. We hiked up a rocky/root covered trail & picnicked by the waterfall. Ahhh…

Getting Out

Our family went into a yucky sorta “season” in June. I’m not sure what triggered this transition, but it’s forced us to push through some uncomfortable growth. It hasn’t been pretty a lot if the time. That’s just life sometimes, though. There have also been many great times. I’m just acknowledging the seasons as they come & go. It’s a little backwards from history, but I feel like we are beginning to move into a more calming season.

The kids and I have started hiking around the property again. I can’t believe how long it’s been . I hadn’t forgotten that we have so much to be grateful for, but I’m remembering to not take the reasons we moved here for granted. Outside seems to be where we all breathe deeper. We’re outside often, but we haven’t ventured far from the home lately.

A little here ‘n there

It has become really hard to get shots of my boys without them trying to run off laughing (laughing at me, of course). My oldest told me he could spare a few minutes for me yesterday. Sweet!! He wasn’t kidding either. He was counting each click.

He looks so much like my mom in some of these. I love that.


My youngest loves me taking photos…for now.

Awake from hibernation

I am finally back from a very long hibernation. I’ve taken photos, but they have been just patiently sitting on my computer; then that crashed. Good times. I’m just posting s few today.

Belly Love

A shot of my beautiful best friend’s pregnant belly:) Her girls will know strength, beauty, kindness, loyalty, balanced sacrifice, humor & the realities of life. Her girls are & will be amazing.



Many Fold Farm

Just a couple shots of our trip to Many Fold Farm yesterday.





Been way too long since I’ve posted. Took a long break, but I am chomping at the bit now.

Let’s ride

I have some black & white versions of this photo I’ve now made frame boxes for. It made me think about the color version I never did share. I have a hard time choosing between color and b/w. I love both ways. Anyway, here ya go!
