Summer days driftin’ away….

August 19, 2011

To uh-oh those winter nights…

I really need to be more regular about when I post and what I post and how I post and why I pos… you get the idea.

Anyway, here is a little photo pile of some of the things that we/I have been up to this summer:

(We got Rusty, but you know that already.  Little side note)

I purchased a 50mm f/1.8 lens and I have been loving it… can’t wait to upgrade later on!  Here is the first photo I took with it.

I quit my job at BBW, and am staying home.  I chose this photo because it has library books in it, which I was able to start reading once I left Bath & Body Works.

I watched the news the night they said that Bin Laden was dead.

Esther, this is for you, because it is part of your wedding present.  I am so bad at mailing.  Bad Bad me.

Joe got a car.  I don’t know what type, but I do know it goes fast and Rusty doesn’t really like it. 🙂

We flew to AK, this was in MSP airport at Chili’s.  I don’t like the photo of me, but Joe is just to darned cute in this one, so I had to put it up.

When we got to AK, we were pretty and tired and it was the middle of the night, so in the morning when everyone was up half of us laid down again.  My mom and some of my siblings were at a hotel because they had a Teen Pact conference they were attending, so we got a room there too.

This is my darling friend Esther, who’s wedding we flew up to attend.  I was so blessed to be in her wedding.  Love you!

This photo was taken by Peter Serven, a very talented friend of the groom, Philip.

This is the rather painful process that my family went through trying to get a slightly decent family photo.  I was laughing when I was trying to choose which to put up.

Not through a windshield, and this photo came out of the camera like this.  What a gorgeous place.
