I Take Pictures of Random Things.

I definitely take pictures of very random things. I'm not always entirely sure why, but sometimes I end up really liking some of them!
My mom and sister and I made this wreath for our front door this year!

These are some of the little elements of the wreath, all up close and personal...

My favorite perfume that I own. Smells sooo amazing.

Random, cool tree in a Flagler College parking lot.

Fresh strawberries I bought at the flea market this past weekend.

Dishwashing scrubber...probably most random of them all...

Mini-Cupcakes Jenni made for mine and Stephen's birthday party.

Mug-O-Tea during finals.

Family's empty Coke cans at Christmas lunch.

Salt and Pepper shakers at Christmas lunch.

Tiny pumpkins and squash at Christmas lunch.


These are all some of my favorites from the weeks I was at home in Tallahassee with my family for Christmas break!
Mollie wearing her Christmas scarf, and standing on her Christmas presents, while watching us open our presents! (She things the sound crinkling paper means treats for her, so she gets pretty excited.)
(All photo captions correspond with photo above it.)

Megan's new puppy, Squirt, on his new bed, for his new "big boy" crate because he already outgrew the first one! Yikes!

My stocking, and my new penguin from Lifeway that says: "Let Heaven & Nature Sing." This is my life motto!

Christmas morning! With presents for 10 family members!

Megan and I got to pick out the Christmas tree all on our own this year!

Beautiful tree in my neighborhood at home.

Singing Christmas Tree at Bradfordville First Baptist Church in Tallahassee. (First year in about six that I haven't been in it with Mama and Megan.)

Christmas Lunch

I've seen other photographers photo's of food and family meals, and I liked it. So I wanted to try to get some of my own! This was Christmas lunch with my family of 10!
At the end of it all, all was left was the remains of a few pies...and the love of another amazing year and Christmas.

My Favorite Ornaments

So, it's been months since I've posted photos, and these particular ones are way overdue. But I guess it's better late than never! Every year, my mom gives each of us an ornament as a present. So here are a few of my favorite ornaments from my family's Christmas tree at home!
I don't really have a reason the candy cane is one of my favorites, except that it's cute, and I remember it being around for forever.
A family friend made this for us a few years back, and I just really like it.

This was one of my very own first ornaments--Noah's Ark.

My mom had these made for my sister and I when we were both cheerleaders. They are our high school colors, and even the right color hair for each of us!

My "Aunt" Jane, who is really my mom's best friend, made this for our family in 2007. Penguins are kind of my obsession, so obviously I would love this ornament for our family!
This is another one that my sister and I both have on of our own. This one is my angel, and she has blonde hair, and my sister's again has brown hair. (Her wings are actually feathers, and that's my favorite part!)
This is my favorite picture of my sister and I! She is about a year old, and I would be around 4 years old. Megan was such a chunker, but so dang cute!

Penguins are my favorite, ever. And this is my favorite penguin ornament. (I have many others...)
