What’s in a Christmas Tree

Christmas. So many memories, feelings, sweet and savory treats, decorations, obligations, and so much more are associated with this beautiful season. The first Sunday of this month, the hubby and I found our very first Christmas tree. It has long been the tradition in my family to cut down a cedar tree and use it…

My Day-to-Day

Recently I was looking at an old blog I used to contribute to (Tidbits from Twenty Somethings), some of the posts I read included posts about photo-a-day challenges I completed with friends. I was realizing how fun it is to look back at months where I took a photo every day. My memory is jogged…

Unforgettable

It hasn’t been quite one month since my wedding day, and I already love thinking back on the day and looking at the photos from the day. The day is unforgettable, but the tiny details that made it so could be easily forgotten. So I don’t forget the little details, I’m making a list of…

New Growth

When I spend time with friends, I am usually reminded of how quickly our lives are changing. I can usually identify the change happening in my life but it is always highlighted when I am around friends and I see how natural life changes have affected them. In my own life, my changes include figuring…

Spring Fling

I am so happy it’s spring! I am a little confused as to why we never got a good snow in Kentucky because it makes it seem like winter never really came, (…global warming…). But I am still happy the green grass is here, flowers are popping up through the brilliant-green grass and beautiful, warm…

I am not a Selfie Pro.

Don’t be a hero, if you take your own engagement photos be prepared for a little stress.

Change can be good, it can be scary, and it can happen so fast. I am in the midst of a storm of change right now. I look toward the near future and, God-willing, I see myself living with my beau in his cozy little farm-house. I am also thinking about change in a year…

Discipline

I was once told that the more free time you have, the less you actually accomplish. I find this to be so true! I’m in the middle of my summer break from my graduate classes and I find it hard to manage my time when it isn’t being managed by my professors. Don’t get me…

“SOLD!”

The sounds of amplified, fast voices, gavels, conversation, then the motions all around: nods, hands gesturing to bid, pointing at old tractors and their parts, and examining looks at farm machinery and accessories. Saturday I went to my first auction with the beau. It was quite interesting. We got there around 9 o’ clock after…
