There's just something about a rainy day that calls for building a tent in the living room before story time.

While we were in Nebraska last weekend, we had a small window of time to capture Hannah's senior portraits.  {Can you believe she is graduating already?! Where does time go?} We had so much fun and even made it to some of Hannah's favorite portrait locations!

On the field at Memorial Stadium! 

So gorgeous.

 Class of 2013

Congratulations, Hannah!

2013 Book List

A few books I've managed to finish, I've just started, or am hoping to read yet this year:

Mamarazzi: I love, love, love this book! So many fabulous pictures, ideas, and tips. When talking about camera settings, everything is explained so clearly. Not only does it give excellent tips for photographing children's professional portraits, but it also has many fun ideas about capturing the little details in their life, too. You don't have to be a mom to learn from this book and improve your photography skills!! {grin}  

What have been some of your favorite recent reads?

"When You give it to them, they gather it up;
when You open Your hand, they are filled with GOOD things."
Psalms 104:28
her cute little toes sticking out of the highchair

{just one of the little things that made me smile today
and praise the Lord for the many, many other good things He has given me!}

A seriously neglected aspect of the art of appreciation is the habit of noticing...
delusions keep us looking ahead or abroad for happiness, instead of ENJOYING the SMALL pleasures right around us -- HERE and NOW.

--David Dunn
