So, we’re finally here in Georgia. I can’t believe it. After all of those months of counting down, we’re finally here and settling in to our new home. But before we left, we took some time to celebrate: 1. All five of the kids together in one place at the […]

Create Your Own Stock Photography {Living Outside the Stacks} 3
Have you ever written a fabulous post and then realized that you don’t have a photo to go along with it? Yes? Good, I’m glad I’m not the only one. This has happened to me so much that I decided to make sure that it never rarely happens again. For me, this means having […]

Motherhood {Living Outside the Stacks} #OurProject52 2
Motherhood. I never knew that I could be so very brave and so very afraid all at the same time. Raising children is not for the weak, man. For nine months, you’re walking around with this person inside of you, feeling everything you feel (and causing you to feel some […]

Did I tell you guys that I’m also participating in a 52 Week Project with some of my flickr friends? Oh, how could I leave that out? I thought I told y’all everything! Every year since about 2012, I’ve been invited to join in either a 52 week or 365 […]

Out of Focus Guitar {Living Outside the Stacks} #OurProject52 5
I absolutely love playing with the focus on my camera, whether it’s to create the beautiful bokeh {that creamy out of focus background} that you see in the top two photos or for the selective focus that you see in the bottom two photos. I like the artistic play of both […]
