Come Fly With Me

Today started out boring. I get up, ate breakfast and slowly got to cleaning our three bathrooms. I turned my iPod on, I looked out the window and saw God’s beauty. I can’t even explain how beautiful it looked in person, first off, the sun was shining, again! We’ve been getting quite a bit of sun lately 🙂 But it wasn’t just sunny, the clouds were dancing as well! I ran to get Frank (my camera), and we had the greatest time! HAHA! The first photo was taken in my bathtub, I sat in it while taking them, nothing weird about that lol! Then I decided to take an adventure and drove by the lake and took the second photo, the other two were taken out the windows of my house again. When I see clouds like that I think of sitting on them, traveling with where the wind goes, I think about cotton candy, and then I get hungry, haha! I had the so much fun taking these photos, I just couldn’t believe how amazing it looked 🙂

Enjoy!

Distance makes the heart grow fonder.. and the mind go crazy

While looking through and adjusting my photos, I couldn’t help picking this one and calling it, “Distance”. My husband has been living away from me for over 8 months. It’s been the hardest time of my life. I’ve mentioned it before, but he’s working a contract IT job in Afghanistan and won’t be home until August. My heart goes out to everyone who has a loved one out there, it’s so painful. He’s my best friend and to have him so far away just tears me up inside, everything around me seems wrong and life is harder than usual. I don’t do well without him and yesterday was an extremely hard day for me. I blame myself for my attitude and the way I act when I’m so down. I’m like a totally different person, I get angry more easily, I’m clingy and emotional, it’s just bad lol! When I talked to him last night on skype, I took it all out on him. I really shouldn’t have. I feel awful and everything I say seems to come out wrong as I try and make up for it. He’s stuck by me even though I was a complete mess and I love him as much more for it. 

This was taken on a long road that runs next to our main freeway called, Sears Road. It’s gorgeous and I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more pictures of it. It’s my favorite road to just drive down when I feel like to need to escape 🙂

Small town life

I can’t tell you how excited I was when I looked outside yesterday and saw the sun, haha! It was warm and sunny so I grabbed my camera, my mom and we soaked in as much vitamin D as we could. As we started the walk we noticed neighbors that we hadn’t seen in months. Here in the Pacific Northwest if it’s rainy and cold, our neighbors like to hibernate. I have to admit, I’m one of those neighbors as well. Just a few feet from our house we ran into two different neighbors who were gardening, the other was playing with her new dog, so I just thought I’d show you what I see when I go for walks. Here’s a glimpse into my world and the beauty of a small town 🙂

Lightroom 4, let’s see how you work…

Image

My husband is amazing!! Totally surprised me with Lightroom 4, I’m super excited! I’m still learning how to do everything on it, but this is the first picture I’ve messed with and I was finally able to add the watermark. I probably did it completely wrong, but I’m sure I’ll figure that out later. This is a portrait of my brother, Eric, whom I’ve posted on here in the past. Enjoy 😀
