First Day of Spring

Well, today was the first day of spring, and it was a lovely day here, but I could not help thinking of the Nicer and Warmer weather we had back a couple weeks ago in Florida.  My last post was about some of the classes we did at Click Away and today, I am sharing some more of the fun!  This was another amazing class taught by Kim Bear and Amy Cyphers of @wildmychild photography.   We had fun learning some video techniques and some stills combined to make this a wonderful story!  One of the best parts was that the beach fog rolled in to the beach right as we were going to start our class, so it made for a cool background!
Here are just a few of the fun shots I got!

 It was a fun place to learn and practice.

 The fog made it look really cool!
 You couldn't even see the hotel in the background behind the fence.  It came in and stayed for a bit and then the fog went away, and the beach went back to being a sunny gorgeous place!

More Beach Beauty

We had a wonderful time at the Click Away photography workshop with ALL the learning that went on, but the most fun part was practicing with the Models.  The classes out on the beach were so awesome!  Today I am sharing some of my favorite captures from one of my sessions. Thank you to Rachel Nielsen Photography and Krista Campbell Photography for being such awesome teachers! 

 This was a fun one-- getting to see all the experts at work!!  We were all having  a lot of fun and learned lots too!  Amelia Island was a wonderful backdrop!!

Travel always Inspires!

Travel is always one of my very favorite ways to get inspired! I love seeing the different types of climates and different horizon lines!  The BEACH is definitely my Number 1 place for inspiration.  I got to go to a conference held on Amelia Island, Florida recently and wow, it did not disappoint!  Here's some of the photos!

How can you resist this view from my veranda??? 

Stephanie and I went exploring our first day!  We had lots of fun seeing Fernadina Beach!  

Shells in the window!  

The cutest little stairway!  

This little bridge led to an island we enjoyed right across from where we were staying! 
 These are just a few of my pics from this trip and I will be sharing more, but for now, these are some fun Location shots!  The place was Gorgeous!!!  So different from the dry desert SW that I live in.

One day, in the middle of the day, we had Beach Fog show up!  It was so cool!!!

3 Weeks AGAIN????

 Well, as I always say when I post on my blog-- where does the time go??? When I saw that it had been since the 1st of February since I posted, I was so surprised!  It went by in the blink of an eye.  For today's post, on my way back to Blogging world,  I am sharing a little Tea Party prep that I had this month for GALENTINES day!  I love brining out my Teapots and cups and set a pretty table for the party!
I love fancy tea cups and pots, so it is really fun to get them out and use them from time to time.  

It was fun to set a Girly and fancy table. 

And of course, we needed some Signage! 

 Here is the final table setting and It was such a nice time to catch up and share some Love around Valentine's day!  Most of YOU know I AM a Valentine! (maiden name) so Valentine's day is always a special day to me!!
Hope your day was a special one!!!  I love that you stopped by!

My Farmer Hubby

Today, I thought it would be fun to share about our little Farm!  I call my hubby a farmer, because he has enjoyed having several little pets in our back yard.  If you have followed the blog for a while, you know we love our bunnies, and you have probably seen our dogs, but this past year, we added some guinea pigs and we have had so much fun with them.  I thought it would be fun to update you on our little friends!  Here's the old Faithful Brooklyn with her dad.

Here's Thelma LOO 

And this is Otis!  

We also have Deputy Fife, and he is so tame that he can run free in the yard and Brooklyn will kind of Herd him! 

And YOU may remember seeing Sterling our Buck in some other blog posts.  He has a wife-- named Stella who is the greatest mom of the baby bunnies, but I did not get any pics of her on this session.  

Obviously they get along ok!!

Brooklyn is definitely the favorite!  

And then Pansy, who is now 15 jumped into the pic! 

Yes, he is as much fun as he looks!!!
Thanks for visiting the FARM today!

This little Cutie

Today I am finally moving into the New year with my pics from January 2018!  For some reason I am super slow to get going this year, but we have been having lots of fun with our sweet little Elliette!  Here's some favorites from some of her recent visits.  She makes a wonderful subject to practice pics on!  She is almost 6 months-- hence the first shot holding the 6 month marker.

The one made me giggle-- looks like she is saying "All done with the book, MIMI"

I'd caption this one "nail biter" = must have been watching some sports!  
She is always a Mommy's girl!  

We have lots of fun on our MIMI days!  What a blessing to get to play with this sweetie!!!
