This is probably my favorite picture from my photo walk this week. I dunno, there’s something about fallen trees and moss… I want to know what felled the tree. Was it a bad storm? Did the tree rot? And how long did it take the moss to grow? I know, my thoughts are completely random but what are you gonna do? These are the things that go through my head…
I’m linking up with Misty and Kim for Shoot. Edit. Submit. To join in the fun, all you have to do is:
- Photo must be taken this week (Saturday ~ Friday)
- Only one entry per person
- “Shoot. Edit. Submit.” button or link back to the contest must be on the post to qualify
- Link only to the post, not the main blog
I also think it’d be cool if you left some comment love for other participants but that’s just my thing, not one of the rules…
After running some errands, Miss 18 and I decided to stop by the Conservation Center and go for a walk. I love it there. It’s so peaceful and quiet. Well, you know, except when you get down in the woods and you hear stuff moving amongst the trees but you don’t see anything. That’s kinda freaky. And Miss 18 didn’t help with all the jumping and screaming she was doing.
Still I managed to get some great pictures…
In her defense, I did my fair share of jumping too, but I was the one on the ground with the spiders that she kept pointing out to me. And, nope, there are no pictures because EEP! SPIDERS!

Have a happy Thursday!
I’ve often said that I have the navigational skills of a monkey in a hurricane. Sometimes being directionally challenged has led me to wonderful discoveries such as the Bollinger Mill Historical Site and other times it has left me on the side of the road near breaking point because I wasn’t sure which way to go. But the one thing that I’ve learned throughout both of these experiences is that I need to have a plan. If I don’t want to get lost, I can’t simply rely on my GPS. I have to have a map and a fully charged phone.
In our spiritual lives, sometimes we can feel like we’re at a crossroads and don’t know which way to turn but God doesn’t leave us to flounder on the side of the road crying. He has provided us with a perfect map that never needs updating and a means of contact that never has a battery fail. That map is the Bible and the means of contact is prayer.
If we ask Him to guide our footsteps each and every day, He will keep us on the right road.

Yay! throws confetti We made it to the first Wednesday of 2012 and you know what that means ~ It’s time for What I Wore Wednesday! Are you ladies ready for another 52 weeks of fun and fashion? I know I am.
I only have one outfit this week but I’ve literally been in sweats the rest of the time. Hey, don’t judge, my family’s been home and we’ve just been kickin’ it. But real life started today, so I’ll be getting dressed and taking pictures.
What I Wore Sunday: New Year’s Day Church Services
The inspiration for this outfit was an episode of Friends. I know, that show is so 2004 but I still love the clothes. Well, most of them… Anyway, in the final episode,”Monica” wears an outfit very similar to what I’m wearing above of course, Courtney Cox was pregnant in that episode but still… I just find that this is a great go~to outfit for me when I’m having one of those days when nothing fits or feels comfortable.
Do you have a go~to outfit?

This year I decided to challenge myself and participate in a 52 week course that’s hosted by Project52.org. I’m no where near the skill level of the other participants but the only way to get better is to challenge yourself, right? So that’s my intention ~ to push myself to be better.
The first assignment is to write a vision statement identifying how we see ourselves as photographers and what we’d like to do with our photography. I’m a librarian by training, so naturally I see people as books, each with their own story to tell…
To Follow My Project, Click the Picture
People are books ~ some of their covers are worn with use, others are smooth and untouched with stories yet to be told. I want to tell those stories. I want to know what’s beneath the surface. And I want to share those stories with others.
