It’s been a bit breezier here this week. A slight chill is in the air. Fall’s just around the corner. The annuals are looking worn and torn from the dry, summer heat. Our garden is still vibrant for late August, but plenty of plants are overgrown, beyond bloom, and in need of a hearty prune. The kids have their…

    I cried all the way through this post!! Yikes!!! I had Tiff go into our house to get some tissues, as we were in the car ready to go somewhere.The song that Tiff has on the radio right now is “God is on the Move…Alleluia”!

    Beautiful! God ways and paths are not always clear, and we may seem confused or questioning, but they are always good. Praying for you on your birthday and knowing God will bless it with sweetness and contentment.ReplyCancel

In loving memory of Olivia and Steve. In honor of their families. Music’s pulled me through the two weeks between Africa and Christmas. It’s fitting that the only post I visioned for Christmas is inspired by song. Michael W.

    Lovely post Amy, Some of my fondest memories were picking berries along my grandpa’s fenceline in Washington. But the best part was a guided tour of the woods with Grandpa who knew every plant and animal in the woods. So glad you have the opportunity to capture some of your precious moment on film… I would love to have a photo journal of those precious moments we had with our Grandpa 🙂ReplyCancel
