After a week or so of being cooped up and sick, I am ready to take on the world! The agenda includes: a belated "welfare wednesday" at the mexican tonight because all my ladies are in town, a chili cook off and wine tasting up in Riner tomorrow and Amy's baby shower on sunday.

Today has been spent in a hustle and bustle of cleaning and laundry before friends arrive with neccessary breaks for kisses and swinging in between. Haley is absolutely smitten by this little makeshift swing we fixed her on the back porch and I do believe if I could fit my tail in the darn thing i`d be sittin' right there on it with her soaking up the sunshine. It really is a little slice of heaven.

The weather is crisp and perfect and my recovery couldn't come with better timing. Cardigans, crunching leaves and moseying around about with my loved ones.... what more could a girl ask for <3


Are any of y`all friends with Ashley? (theverticalbar) You should be, the color palettes in her photography are as timeless and captivating as the images themselves. She is an all around cool chick and such an inspiration to me.

Happy Weekend!

i have been stalking your photos a lot lately and trying to mimic the color schemes! i think i`m about a quarter successful, which isn't bad, but hopefully a fancy DSLR will land in my hands after christmas and I can get to messing around with all the awesome manual features and focus and such :)

photography is so much fun- i wish i had a better camera and more time to pursue all aspects of it. i just look at magazines and blogs i like and see how they've photographed things and try and mimic the angles, the color schemes, etc. You have a super cute model so I would take it and run with it ;)
