Scavenger Hunt Sunday: {10.20.13}


“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
-Tahereh Mafi


"Autumn is a second Spring when every leaf is a flower."   -Albert Camus

Is it any wonder that this is my favorite time of year? It is so beautiful!

First World Problem

This weekend my husband cleaned up the garden because it is getting to cold for the plants to survive. Would you believe he picked 60 peppers? What am I going to do with all of them?


I went on a walk in the early evening with my children just as the sun was setting today. I love the golden hour, when the world is becoming quiet and still. I admit that I did more picture-taking than walking!

A Good Day

I offered to take some family pictures for my sister this year. I am not a professional by any means, but I enjoy taking pictures and my sister thinks I am pretty good at it. However my first attempt was a dismal failure. I was coming down with a horrible head cold (which resulted in rupturing both my eardrums a few days later), so my settings were a little off and many of the pictures were blurry. (I think I was a little blurry too). Luckily she let me try again and the pictures turned out SO much bettter! Here is a picture of my cute little niece. Any time you can get a cute, smiling picture of a two-year old is a good day!
