No Spring nor Summer Beauty

has such grace as I have seen

As I have seen in one Autumnal face.

John Donne

I told mom one time that fall reminds me of an old lady growing more graceful with age. Silvery hair, sweet smiling eyes, lovely soft wrinkles, and story after story of her youth. In the same way I believe fall is a tribute to all the fresh days of spring and the glory days of summer and a acknowledgement of all the cozy days to come. :)

Yesterday, my hubby and I went on an adventure to the mountains. We got up at 4:30 so that we could get the the top and watch the sun rise. Then we spent the day driving all over taking pictures and enjoying each other's company. It was a magical day. One that will be remembered and talked about for many years. Perfect.

week #11

Nothing beats a quiet sunday afternoon with some of your favorite people in the world taking pictures and laughing and hanging out in your favorite small town in the world.

Yesterday afternoon, Carmen, Carrie, my hubby Dennis and I set out on a photography adventure. Dennis and I wanted pictures for Christmas cards and to fill some frames while Carmen and Carrie decided to have to pictures taken so they can hand out Christmas cards to their cleaning ladies. Carmen took the pictures of Dennis and I first, then we let him free to go home and I took some pictures of Carmen and Carrie. This is pretty much all I've seen yet, and I'm terribly excited to see how the rest turned out!

week #10

For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us.

One thing that I absolutely love about the South is all the old buildings. The South is known for not being able to let go of the past, and I think that maybe the old buildings and chimney's are a sign of that too. And the history lover inside of me can't help but wonder what that old house saw...what lives touched it?

This is actually one of the pictures I took on the bike ride, but this week was so crazy, I didn't have time to take any other pictures. I loved the old rusty coke signs on this old store. I took like 5 pictures just of the signs! Just another reminder of how time keep right on marching.
