Trip to Yosemite...

So myself and a friend of mine have been talking for a long time about going to Yosemite to take photos and we finally did! I have not been there for such a long time and was really wanting to go.  My hubby went with us and we had lots of fun! We slipped and slid all over the place and some spills were involved as well. ;-)

I could not believe how pretty it was. I could have taken thousands of photos if my camera was fast enough.  What a perfect day it was.  Here are a few pics from the trip....

Vote! Vote! Vote!

My youngest sister is an awesome artist! She has so many amazing drawings that she has done.  You can find many of them in her Etsy shop.

She has submitted her first drawing to Threadless T's for a particular contest.  Sure would appreciate it if you could vote for her here.

I just love this design!! She has such a great imagination!! It amazes me what she does when she puts a pen, pencil, or paint to paper.

Autumn's in the air...

This is my favorite time of year. I love how things start to change during this season. Everything looks different and smells different. The air feels cool and crisp! The sunsets are more stunning. Then the leaves are the best when they start to change colors. Each time it's never the same. Sometimes they are more red or more golden. When they fall it's even more amazing! The ground is covered in wonderful colors!!! I could go on and on....

Here are some pics from home....Enjoy!!!

Beauty in Camping!

This past weekend I went camping with my church and had so much fun! It's nice to get away from the hectic life that tends to consume me at times. I need to take a step back and just listen to the quiet. This was a good time to relax and take in all the beauty of nature. It amazes me!!! I never get tired of all the wonderful things that God has created. All the detail he puts into things is so mind boggling.

We had a time of worship and learning on our last day. It was nothing fancy, just a quiet time with God and his word. Our speaker talked about how we just need to quiet ourselves and listen for God's whisper. I think I get so wrapped up in stuff that sometimes I forget to listen for his still voice. He whispers often I'm sure and I hope to listen more.....
