Lessons Learned on a Family Kayaking Trip

Lessons Learned on a Family Kayaking Trip Every year we go on a family kayaking trip.  I look forward to it every year.  Some trips are very memorable, like the time my sons climbed a short cliff and jumped into the water below and the year we stayed at a campground that had horrible karaoke music.  But this year, our family kayaking trip was memorable because I almost didn’t survive it. Literally.

Walking Down Magazine Features Memory Road

I’ve recently had several new requests for photos for magazine features.  I’ll let you know if or when they end up in print, but it made me think back to my past features. That giddy feeling never goes away every time I see my home or projects in print. If you are new here, I hope you’ll enjoy seeing those features, and if you’ve been around awhile, I hope you won’t mind taking a walk down memory lane with me.

Love Notes | Saying “I Love You” 52 Times for the Newlywed Couples

Love Notes | Saying “I Love You” 52 Times for the Newlywed Couples The easiest way to stay connected with my two sons who live out of state is to pick up the phone and call them, but I wanted to send each of them personal notes from me to encourage them in their new marriages (my oldest son got married last week, and my middle son’s wedding is in the fall).

You know, the ones where they try to convince you to buy a ginsu knife, and if you’re not convinced, “but wait, there’s more!”.  They’ll also throw in set of steak knives and a can opener!  Today’s blog post is something like that. 🙂

Country Living Farmhouse Pets | Meet the Minis

Country Living Farmhouse Pets | Meet the Minis About a year and a half ago, my daughter gave away her beloved quarter horse, Indy. It was a tough decision, but at the time she was in college and working full time, and she just couldn’t give him the exercise and attention he needed. Fortunately, we know the family and are able to visit him occasionally.  But we still miss him a lot. We weren’t the only ones who missed him {Read More}

Engagement Photos, Tree Hugging, and Amazing Views

When my son asked me to come visit him and his fiancée to take engagement photos, without hesitation I agreed. I’m not a people photographer, so I was a little nervous.  But if they weren’t too picky about how they turned out, I was willing to try. Here’s a quick collage to give you an idea of the photos I shot. If you want to see more photos and hear about my “adventure” taking their photos, you can see more below. {Read More}

He Saved the Best Rock for Last | A Love Story

There once was a little boy who climbed onto his friend’s bike that was too big for him. He tried to ride it down the driveway, but he fell and broke his arm.   A few years later, that same little boy climbed up another friend’s bunk bed, got his leg stuck in the ladder rung, and fell and broke his other arm.
