Photo of the Day: Country Morning Fog

We stayed at my in-laws this weekend in Southeast Kansas. As I stumbled my way downstairs, still half asleep around 7 a.m., I saw this out the front door. I immediately grabbed my camera and headed outside, barefoot and in my pj’s. My in-laws weren’t the least bit surprised when I came back in with wet grass clippings caked to my feet. They sure do know me! This photo is dedicated to my mother-in-law – today is her birthday!

Project 52 Week 21: On the Road Again …

This past week, my husband and I took a road trip with another couple to North Carolina & South Carolina. We had an amazing trip! We just got back last night, so I obviously haven’t sorted through all my photos yet, but here are just a few of my favorites. As you can see, we had quite the mixture of activities throughout our trip.

During a hike to Grotto Falls in Great Smoky Mountain National Park, we saw a guy with a pack of lamas transporting supplies to a hike-in resort. We couldn’t have arrived at a more perfect time to capture this moment.

Project 52 Week 3: #IAmBlessed

I try not to post too many sunrise/sunset photos, but I just couldn’t resist this one. After working on sermon slides at church Thursday evening, I left just minutes before the sun sank below the horizon. Besides adding my watermark, this photo has not been edited. The colors were truly that beautiful. What a blessing!
