Welcome to my blog! I write, and take photos, and use Photoshop every day. I love learning and surprises and my sweet family and being a transplanted southerner.

Independence Day


I took about 250 pictures today.

It was a day full of sunshine, and togetherness, and a community party in our little historic downtown, an hour-long midafternoon nap, grilled steak  (and VERY mediocre potato salad), our own little firework display (Elliott, too scared, asked to be put in his bed and watched from his 2nd-story window),  and homemade chocolate ice cream (eaten on the porch watching the big fireworks). Perfect.

Of all these moments, this is my favorite one.

Happy Birthday,  America.

Announcing the August Up & Running Class!
