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.


  1. Hey Mal! Thanks so much for popping in and saying hello-- new friends are minty biscuits. =)

    As to your Gisbourne question... I'm a Jess. In fact, we've had many a conversation gushing over the beautiful and wonderful Guy, just as Petie and I have had many a conversation debating. ;) Who do you prefer?

    BBC Robin Hood is just the best... so much awesomeness. I need to rewatch it.

    Thanks again for popping in! =) Have a splendid day!

    1. Haha I'm totally with you and Jess ;) I didn't even really realize that I liked him so much at first (the fact that I rooted for Guy+Marian more than Robin+Marian sometimes should've been a clue), but I realized it I went back and watched the whole series again a couple times. I know he has his problems, but I can't help but like him! (That might have something to do with the actor, but whatever ;) And I love how he turns out in the end - the episode with him and Meg is precious ;)

      I know - I'm addicted to it. I just went back and rewatched it from the beginning and fell in love all over again :)

      Hope you have a great week!

  2. You take such outstanding photos!!

  3. "Life is good, God is good, and I am blessed." - awesome statement!
