new pics.

i took a small, much-needed break from taking pictures.
it was starting to feel like a chore. "take a picture of this, don't forget to take that picture, etc, etc."
i was burned out.
over the last week or so i picked up the camera again.
and i'm happy to say, it's just like riding a bike!

here are a few of my favorites from the week, fresh off my memory card.

anna's last softball game.

mr. grumpy gill's scowl.  

pretty flowers blooming in our backyard.

ben boy's swirly hair

bucky barkenstein.

ben's ornery grin. (and drippy popsicle shirt)

layin in the grass on a cool night.

practicing handstands.

and my favorite, even though the focus is way off, just seems so absolutely her, at this moment of her life.

feels good to be back at capturing these sweet faces that surround me every day.

some days i feel so lucky, i feel so aware, so much goodness is hanging around me.
today was one of those days.
as i was driving home from work, singing loudly and feeling awfully carefree, i couldn't help but thank God for today. 
for feeling so happy, so content and so loved.
