friday finds sunset edition

I was just cleaning, doing normal things. And then I went and glanced out the window and saw the prettiest sunset. I threw on my coat and hat and ran up the road and down the hill in the 11 degree weather so I could get a picture or 5. By the time I got there the sunset wasn't as impressive as it had been but either way I took some pictures. It was good exercise and by the time I got back in the house I felt like an ice cube. But yay, go me I got my butt outside and got some pictures!

It feels really good to be writing blog posts and taking pictures again. I think I may very well keep this up :)

I woke up earlier today and looked out my window and there were the prettiest shadows and sparkles. I ran outside and started taking pictures. I ended up in our woods and out in our neighbors field and it felt so nice to get outside and take pictures. I haven't actively taken pictures in a really long time and part of what made me want to get back into blogging was the fact that I missed photography. For example, one day when I woke up the little mirror that I have on my windowsill for when I do my makeup had this really cool looking outline of frost and dew around the mirror and it was so pretty. I kind of ruined the moment when I couldn't find my camera so I never actually took the picture but nevertheless it was really cool. 

Today seems to be the perfect winter day so I might go snowshoeing, who knows! See you next time blog world.

New Year, New Beginnings!

Welll, hello ;)

So almost two months since I have posted, Thanksgiving and Christmas have both passed (both were fantastic) and I don't have much of an excuse except for the fact that I didn't have a camera. Until now... My big sister boughty me a camera for Christmas. For real. I found out several days before Christmas which was a bit of a bummer but I was (and still am) completely and utterly psyched.

On a different note, raise your hand if you remember my April fools joke. Anybody? If you don't you can see it HERE, you could even go read it again if you want!

You may be wondering why I am reminding you of that post. Right now I am all, new year, new things, NEW BLOG. And so I am here to tell you that I AM finished with this blog, and I will be starting a new different kind of blog for the new year. 

As I'm sure you have all noticed, I have barely blogged since early Summer so I guess it was a long time coming!

I have had such a lovely time with this blog, it was really amazing. I met several people who I am so glad to have 'met' but I am ready for some changes.

This year was the best year of my life (and I will probably end up saying the same thing for this next year), I grew as a person, I learned new things, and DISCOVERED new things most of all. SO GO 2013!!!


And that is that. My last post on this blog. I will be making this blog private, as I do not want to delete it and all my posts but it will be here.

Thank you so much for visiting me and my blog throughout the last year and a few months. Really, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. (and 5 more thankyous)

At lassst, my blog post has come along...

Hi. I never posted like I said (and thought) I would, did I? I wanted to! I swear I did! But time got away from me, it felt like October went by in a haze and never happened, even though it did. But today I went on a really long walk with my mom and little sister and I brought my sisters camera since mine is broken and took a ton of pictures of pretty trees and stuff which felt darn good after months of not taking pictures. Changes to the blog are happening, I'm excited, I have no idea what I'm going to do with it.

Morning Quiet

The last few mornings have been my definition of perfect.
I wake up around 8:00, let out my chickens and feed them, go and make my coffee and eggs (my younger hens have started laying and we are getting at a minimum half a dozen a day!), and either go out on the back porch with a book or browse Tumblr. Also did I mention that there is rarely anyone awake since my mother has already left for work? So its quiet and peaceful and perfect by my standards.

I am now back on the porch with my coffee writing my first post in over a month. Time kind of flew by. But now that the leaves are starting to change colors and we are having more perfect fall days I am ready for my favorite season of the year and am going to be taking lots of pictures (hopefully) and am ready to be inspired by the beautiful season.

So, here is to actually posting somewhat regularly without a post less month! I am off to build some sort of mini chicken sanctuary for my 3 old ladies who get picked on...

P.S. This blog has officially been around for over a year!
