Beauty of Life: 365 day 179

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams ~Ashley Smith

No Path: 365 day 177

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
**you can't really see it from the picture except for the broken umbrella but we had heavy rain and even heavier wind gusts.

52 Weeks of BAM: Week 2

Joined a group on Flickr called 52 Weeks of BAM to help me get more comfortable & confident taking my own picture. Their motto: A self portrait, taken every week...of you-for you-and by you!
It may be uncomfortable, it may be weird, it may make you cry, but step out from behind the camera and start snapping yourself! Own it! Love it! Embrace it! Let your bamtastic self shine :)

This Is My Wish For You: 365 day 174

Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life
~Anonymous
**On a side note, it's not Ugg weather just yet but it is starting to get a little chilly & crisp around here so we're just getting prepped. We are now wearing the same size shoes so we'll be sharing these Uggs--lol

Soccer Season: 365 day 173

She had her 1st soccer game yesterday and not only did her team (the Golden Eagles) win 8-0 but she scored her 1st goal :)) On a side note, I wish I had taken these pictures on the soccer field--think they would've turned out much better but oh well, another time...

Feather Hair Extensions: 365 day 171

Apparently these are all the rage and she just had to have them before school started. So we went to Regis Salon today and she got three feathers (buy 2 get one free). I've only seen them on straight hair so we didn't know how they would look on her super curly hair but I think they came out nice, don't you? Curious about what they are? Click HERE to find out.

btw, see I kept my promise & started taking pictures again--I'm glad to be back :))

Getty Image Contributor

I haven't touched my camera since July 10th :( Been super busy & just down right lazy with my camera but I think I've found a little motivation again. Today I got Flickr mail which told me I was invited to be a contributor to Getty Images. Pretty exciting stuff...
