Mossy Shoots


Spring is springing everywhere around here.  Even the moss is putting up little green shoots that look like vibrant green grass.  I love the texture of it.

Apple Blossoms


It has been such a warm week here in Pennsylvania, that I can't help but have spring on the brain.  And when I think of spring, I think of apple blossoms.

Birthday #32


Well, another year has passed and I am 32 today.  So much has happened in the past year that I have to think this year will be a bit calmer.  Since my last birthday I was pregnant, had a baby, moved across the country, and have been renovating our house.  It has really been a blur.  It seems like just a few weeks ago that I was spending my last birthday with my friend Leah, exploring out in the wilds of Wyoming.  We packed a lunch and took off on the ATV, cameras in hand.  These shots are from that day.  This year, my mother-in-law is here, watching the baby for a few hours so I can spend some time blogging, sorting photos, and working on Wyle's baby book.  It is nice to have a few hours to myself to do the things I love most.  Later tonight my husband and I are going out to dinner, without Wyle in tow.  All of you parents know what a rare treat this is.  The sun is shining, the air is warm, and I am so blessed to be celebrating yet another birthday (and the official beginning of spring).  I hope you are all having a lovely day, too!

Wyle and Her Rabbits II


I couldn't resist another shot at this photo of Wyle with all my stuffed rabbits.  She is three months old now and is really coming into her own personality.  She is such a happy baby.  She smiles a lot, at both Brian and me of course, but also strangers, and her toys, and even sounds she likes.  I love that everything seems to make her happy.  Sometimes she smiles when I put the bottle in her mouth, dripping milk out of the corners of that smile, but it is so cute anyway.  I am having a hard time taking a photo of that smile, though, because she just stares at the camera when it is in front of her face.  Mesmerizing, no doubt.

Leaves Frosted With Snow


Today is sunny and approaching warm, but we have had our fair share of snow in the past week.  I ran outside with my camera when it began the last time, and caught this photo of the snow frosting the leaves that had piled up against the fence.

More Mule Deer


Here are the rest of the shots from last spring's mule deer shoot in Wyoming.  They were so calm in my presence, I could barely believe it.
