Two hundred and fifty-six

It was obviously Christmas time. We had our tree up. I was relaxing on the couch enjoying some peace and quite after the kids had gone to bed. I was content and at ease. I was cherishing the moment of sitting in front of our tree we had decorated as a family. So, I took a photo to remember the moment. I realized just now, I am sitting on the same couch, the exact same way right now while I am typing this. HAHA! I guess that’s how I roll. Hard to believe Christmas time is just around the corner again.

I love this photo! It was one of the first cool days of late summer in Virginia. My daughter and I were sitting on the bench swing at my parent’s house. There is something magical about a cool summer day. It makes you realize Fall is coming soon. The changes of the seasons are always special, no matter what transition it is. Simple shot of our feet and legs, no real editing, with my friend’s Nikon D40. It makes my heart swoon. Special moments are usually the simplest.

All of these shots were random. The first one was with the crappy cell phone in the bathroom at my parent’s house. I felt kinda sexy that day so I decided to take a pic. It was low light so it didn’t come out so great. I think I liked the photo then, it’s ok now. The second shot was with my friend’s Nikon D40 driving in the car. I was probably headed to my in-law’s house in Suffolk, but not sure. I love to drive, especially down long country roads with not many cars. The Gary Numan Cars song is one of my family’s favs. The lyrics are pretty much how I feel about driving. 🙂 The third shot was at my in-law’s place. It was summer, I was sitting on the floor playing with the kids and taking pics of them. I had my feet on the rocking horse, you see where this is going. It was also with the D40. All of these shots are pretty boring, nothing spectacular, nothing terribly bad.

This shot really should go with 210 and 211. It is another photo from my parent’s house, when we had to move back in for a few months. I was swinging on the bench swing. You can see their house in the background. You can even see my Dad back there by the gate. I had some free time before I started working then. My kids and I spent a good bit of time outside, even when it was hot. I really like the quote that goes with this one. Sometimes it is hard to come back home, but it never really does leave you. Happy with this shot.

This was my husband and I’s 16 year anniversary together. We started dating on April 14, 1996; I was 14 and he was 15. We never split up and we ended up married with two children. I rarely ever get dressed up, but being a special occasion it called for such. We went to dinner with the kids and had a lovely time. Afterwards, before I took off all this mess, I took this photo. My legs are one of the few things on my body that I like most of the time. They look pretty good here too. I’m happy with this photo, although the focus is a bit off.

This night was First Friday at Frames and Things in Copperas Cove, Texas. A super fun night with friends, wine, food and art! I had to stop at the gas station on the way home. I had my camera so I thought I would try to get a shot, something different. I opened the passenger door, set the camera on the door frame and put on the self-timer.  I took a couple of shots, but the first one was the best. Something mundane becomes more interesting when you see it from a different angle.

This was a night out for the local art night. I had dressed up in my new boots and old skirt. When I got home I took some shots. This turned out how I wanted it to, except for the focus. I could not get it in focus for anything. I gave up and this was the best I could do. I like how my legs look in this shot, better than I think they look anyway. The quote was chosen because that skirt was a thrift find and the boots were on sale from $50 to $10! A great find!

“Buying something on sale is a very special feeling.  In fact, the less I pay for something, the more it is worth to me.  I have a dress that I paid so little for that I am afraid to wear it.  I could spill something on it, and then how would I replace it for that amount of money?”  ~Rita Rudner


 It was a unseasonally warm day. The kids and I took a walk over to a near-by playground. I maybe thirty years old and the mother of two children, but I still love to swing. After I got my kids going, I did some swinging myself. I love this shot. I managed to get my legs and my complete shadow, while swinging and it’s in focus.

I have always worn and enjoyed crazy socks. My Christmas day shot with my red and green knee highs got some attention and it was requested that more be taken of other weird socks I own. I was wearing these taking photos of something else and decided to get a shot of the socks. This is a strange angle and I don’t like the floor, but oh well. It’s a fun shot.

Christmas morning with my Christmas socks in front of the Christmas tree with the Christmas presents all around. I have had these socks for a few years now and I always wear them to bed on Christmas night. They are fun. I guess I am into my own sort of traditions.
