Navigating through life away from the library


1957 Chevy Bel Air {Photography}

Yesterday, I got to spend some one~on~one time with the boy. It’s rare that he and I spend time hanging out with each other. I’m so not into video games and he could care less about crocheting. But one thing we do have in common is a love of old cars. Who knew?

When we spotted this 1957 Chevy Bel Air in the parking lot, we just had to stop.

We walked around the car, talked about how we’d fix it up. Where we’d like to take it on a drive. Just a bunch of random musings…

I had no idea that the boy was that into cars. And I’m pretty certain that he had no clue that I like vintage cars. I know others see a rusty old car, but I see the potential and I love it.

Sometimes, I think that’s how God viewed me, like an old rusty car sitting on the side of the road and He saw my potential, took me home, renovated me and made me a new creature {2 Corinthians 5:17}. I’m so grateful that even at my worst, He loved me anyway.

Gray Boots {Shoe Style Saturday}

Can you believe I picked these boots up at Old Navy for $7.03? Score, right? The hubs was all “When your toe pops through the front the first time you wear them then you’ll learn…” Whatever, bubs, they were originally close to $40. Even if I only wear them once, I consider it a deal.

Evening Sky {Shoot. Edit. Submit.}

Now that the weather has warmed up a bit, there’s nothing I like more than going outside with my camera in the evenings to capture the night sky…

Fave Photos {This or That Thursday}

Do you participate in the photo a day challenge? I’ve found that taking pictures on a daily basis forces me to get my camera out even when I don’t really feel like it. It also forces me to be creative and try to think outside of the box. Not all the time do I hit the ball out of the park, but every now and then I get a few shots that I really like. So, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite photos from this month’s Photo A Day Challenge with you. If you’d like to see more or just engage in random conversation, please join me on Facebook by clicking here.
