picture perfect day

so a couple of weeks back we set up a date at piedmont park with the ivey’s. ronda & i wanted some practice with our cameras & it was a beautiful day. i have so enjoyed getting to use my camera more & ever since i ordered my new lens i am even more obsessed. i have light-room now & it is really fun learning and putting your stamp on a photo. i particularly love close ups so my new lens is perfect for that. for those of you who are interested i used this one.  it was a picture perfect day- sunny- good company & laughter.

here are some of the photos.

practice makes perfect?

i left work early wednesday- i got a fever and had some chills & i stayed home thursday bc i was still sick & didn’t want to get anyone else sick. i hate being sick more than anything, there is nothing to do and it is a big waste of time. so to make myself feel productive i downloaded lightroom5 & figured it out. i am still figuring it out, but i love it so much. i am so excited to learn more about the program &  i am waiting on my new 50mm lens to come in…it should be here on monday.

i cannot wait to be back in haiti to practice on those beautiful people & beautiful country. april 28 is just around the corner and we only have $1000 to go, God has been so good in providing for us just like he always does & i am so excited to see what he does this trip.

tomorrow we (ronda & i) have a lovely day planned back at piedmont park to practice with our cameras and get some new photos for our upcoming project we are working on. i cannot wait to have some updated ones  for the blog and for personal use. it is supposed to be a high of 66, which means lunch in the park on an old blanket, long walks, laughs, sunny skies for great pictures and the market will be open! let the weekend adventure begin.

on a good note- my book came in. “back to basics”– it is all about traditional skills- canning- living off the land- what veggies to grow when and where- basically everything i need to know to survive off my land. my dream as you all know is to have my own little farm. so excited for the future & learning to be happy in the present.

hope you  guys all have an amazing weekend!

daydreaming on a saturday

this weekend was so good. i had no plans. no where to be. i watched tv- caught up on white collar & vampire diaries. i cannot get away from that show, but i have always loved vampires so oh well.

saturday ronda came to atlanta. we walked to piedmont park- took some photos- shared some thoughts- made some plans. really exciting plans & i cannot wait to share with you. i have so much creativity i have been wanting to get out. i need an outlet & i think i have found one. yay.

these converse. i love them. i take them everywhere.

also can we just talk about the weather this weekend? atlanta, you have made me proud. it was gorgeous. we are going back this saturday to take some family photos. we have not done photos in forever, if ever, besides the occasional give your phone to your friend and say take our picture. it will give us good practice too.

Image

love this picture. it was AMAZING weather.

Image

we ate at willy’s. i love that place. i used to go there a lot with my friend jillian. good memories in that place.

Image

it is so refreshing to have a friend like ronda. i love her so much. she has such a sweet spirit & such a giving heart. you should all be so lucky.

sundays are always busy for us. i didn’t go to church bc we had a group coming to stay at the mission house & i needed to be there to greet them. i walked to starbucks & walked to cvs & cleaned the apartment. it was so nice. cory got home late & we walked down the street to have a taco.

Image

needless to say it was a very good weekend!
