Warm Spring Day


Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.


If we had no winter,
the spring would not be so pleasant.

One last photo.


April 26th, 2008. The last photo I ever took my husband and our son with my husband's papaw. It breaks my heart to look at it knowing that. It's not even that great... blurry, because I was trying to hurry before they seen me. But, it holds so much and is perfect in it's own way.

He died in early June. He'd been in the hospital's ICU for about two weeks after his truck was hit by a bus. He just couldn't hold on any longer and my husband was the only one in the room with him because everybody stepped out to let him have a moment alone. But, he'd seen 'Ma' and had been calling out to her. 'Ma' is what he called my husband's mamaw who passed away in late 2004.

I wish I would have got more photos of them and also some with my husband's dad. They were all in the driveway that day watching our little boy play. I have photos of all of them at different points when we were standing out there. Just not one of all four of them together. I just wish I would have got one good one. But I'm happy for the ones that I did get and they are treasured.

I'm sad that our little boy will probably not being able to remember him since he was only two years old. Our daughter never got to meet him. I was pregnant at the time and we actually found out we were having a girl the day of his funeral. June 10th, 2008 - truly a bittersweet day.

Just take photos of all the people you love in life. They dont have to be perfect for them to be perfect because you just never know. Even if they're a little blurry, they will still be loved and you'll be oh-so-glad that you have anything rather than nothing at all!

Hubby's Silhouette


Actually, I'm not positive if it's considered a true silhouette since there is still some coloring left in his shirt. I blacked it out in another version but just didn't feel the photo at all so I left it in at the end.

I took this photo on July 30th, 2008. Our two year wedding anniversary. Because, you know, you just cannot celebrate something like that until you go up to the lake five minutes from your house and go fishing ;)

It was honestly a bunch of fun though. I love fishing with my husband and our son! I was six months pregnant with our daughter at that time, too, so it was {extra} H-O-T outside!

The only thing about this photo that bothers me is how his shirt sleeves are kinda poofed out and make his arms look weird. He was cutting my fishing line out of the tree though because I, uh, sort of got it stuck up there when I went to cast it.

BUT! I loooooooooove how in the full size version (and this one, a little bit) I can see his eye lashes, goatee and even the hair on his arms so defined! Love, love, love it!

So I just wanted to share because I was nosing through all of my photos and found it. A treasure that I didn't even know I had :)


Side Note: Maybe one day I will be able to decide on a decent water mark for my photos and wont have a million different ones *lol*
