Photo Shoot!

Hey, y'all!  I went for a shoot with the amazing Miss Megan the other day around the area, and the pictures turned out really well!  So go check out her post and give her some love!
And after you go check out all the good pictures from the shoot, here are some of the bloopers of me being my dorky awesome self.

Ok this face was warranted because there were 6 scary pitbulls chained up across the street barking at us the whole time.  Scary stuff, people.  You'd be making the same face too.

the simple joys

Our new house is full of simple joys.  Watching golden hour descend behind the trees.  Looking for deer.  Pretty flowers on the trees.  New and exciting places to take pictures.  Being surrounded by nature in a new way.  Watching blue birds and cardinals fly by.  Eating dinner as a family on the porch. Going outside into the cool evening air to do homework.  Life is good, God is good, and I am blessed.

Idea taken from the amazing Petie's blog :)

2.  Not hating studying the French Revolution like I thought I would
3.  LOVING reading Tale of Two Cities by Dickens for school. (I hated it the first time I read it cuz I didn't understand it, but I'm loving it the second time around :)
4.  Literally on the floor crying due to laughing so hard while looking at funny things on Pinterest with my brother
5.  Absolutely falling in love with Versailles and dreaming about going to Paris. I'm so far gone that I replaced one of the pretty rose pictures I took with this picture of Versailles as my phone wallpaper.
