Both of these photos were taken on my first trip to visit the 21 acres my Dad purchased out in the country. All my life that man has been talking about buying some land, to hunt, fish, relax and to share with his family. He finally did! He couldn’t be more proud to say that he owns this land and I was excited to see it. I got to ride in the back of my parent’s car, just like I was a kid again. That is photo 311. The land is lovely. It has this sense of peace about it. I can’t explain, but everyone who goes there just feels peaceful. I enjoyed my first visit, hence photo 312. It even warmed up a bit and we didn’t have to stay so bundled up.

I don’t always wear makeup, but when I do I usually take a photo of it. 😛 I like this photo of myself. It’s a bit pixely, but that’s ok. Unlike 306, this was a good hair day, haha. I like this quote too, so true. Some people are transformed when they smile. 🙂

 I love this photo! It truly was a happy moment and I just happened to grab my camera and snag a photo. Had both my babies on my lap and we were laughing and carrying on. Good times!

Wow falling behind on my blogs. Don’t think I will be able to get caught up soon as life keeps moving forward and there is always a million things to do. Day twenty-nine I was feeling MUCH better than I had in almost three weeks. I had enough energy to steam a pumpkin and roast pumpkin seeds. It was a great day in the kitchen, listening to Halloween music, enjoying time with my family and loving the Autumn season. I took a ton of photos while I was working. I even had plans to write a how-to blog on steaming pumpkins complete with photos. I took the photos and never wrote the blog. It’s never too late though, maybe one day. This photo shows my happiness with pumpkins in the kitchen. I was going for an Instagram kind of look, with the faded, unreal colors. I’m not cool enough to own an Iphone so I don’t actually have Instagram to play with, but I see many people’s photos that do use it and they are pretty rad. Maybe one day when it’s not cool anymore I’ll start using it.
