    Fairy of the Woods

    I’m sorry I haven’t been posting lately (although if you check my Facebook page, I’ve posted a few bits and bobs, but not much), but I’ve been really uninspired to put words to the pictures that I have. I’ve got a camping trip, an outfit post, and a 4th of July day all photographed, but… ah, I don’t know what it is with words lately! On Wednesday, I did a photoshoot with my friend Sarah– isn’t she gorgeous? We had a blast tramping around in the woods, pretending she was a forest fairy (or a Disney Princess– while we were shooting, a fawn came up within ten feet of her…

    30 Days of Self Portraits: Motherhood

    A Beautiful Mess has challenged their readers to join them in a 30 day self-portrait challenge, and I’ve decided to join in! Since I take all of my own photos anyway, it will be fun to practice my photography skills (especially since I hope to use them professionally!) But the difference between self-portraits and fashion pictures? I think the self-portraits will be more personal; I’d like to try to put something I love into each of them (something I’m passionate about, or what makes me who I am; books, writing, homemaking, motherhood, marriage… etc) instead of focusing on outfits. Plus, I’ll probably be more experimental with my self-portrait shots than…

    Gathering freckles.

    So I was going to write  a very serious post today that was sparked by something one of my commenters said– a good kind of spark– but today is so beautiful that I can’t be serious. Instead, have some pictures of my day thus far, and I will finish writing that more serious post on a rainy day. I love my home. I love how green it is here. I love how beautiful everything is. Ilove the flowers, and the sunshine, and the fat bumblebees and the twitching hummingbirds. I even love it enough to not mind that grass makes me all itchy and I might just get a sunburn…

    Why yes, I did stick my cupcake in a tree.

    This might be my official blog post for today, even though I’d planned to do a book review. We’ll see how the day goes. I wanted to show you the finished cupcakes (previewed yesterday). I love them. I’m off to a tea party! To eat cupcakes, and other scrumptious things! Mara Outfit: Day three of the Alphabet of Color challenge. C is for Coral. I broke my rule of no buying clothing pieces until after I’ve lost weight… and bought this at Target instead of a pair of red tights last night. Can you blame me? The COLOR! Teehee. Sunglasses that I did not need. They were just fun.
