but it was too something.
i got tired of it pretty quick.

all i wanted to say. :)

countdown to christmas photography style (i did it!)

we had a wonderful Christmas eve with friends that we've known for (almost) longer than i can remember and with our church family at our first ever Christmas eve service! After everyone left and we'd eaten all the dessert we could handle it was quiet. here is a picture:
the stockings were hung by the chimney with care 

and this Christmas day was simply marvelous. We spent it with my grandparents just like every year-it even flurried this morning! I think that counts for a white Christmas. :)

proof of the snow...not the most glamorous picture, but it was the only quick way to capture it. :)
I guess that's my picture for today. I don't really have one that is exactly right to post. it was just kind of a hang out in pjs, play the wii, enjoy company and yummy food kind of day. I hope you had a fabulous Christmas (or respective holiday :) and have a fabulous new year. :)

(pictures to come later :)

It's fun when you get this...

phone call” a drabble of 100 words. (12.22.11)

Hi, this is Sara”
nervous heart beat-i hate talking on the phone.
Hi Sara, I'm a student at Framingham Sate University. Have you received a letter from us yet?”
at least she doesn't want me to ask the questions...could it be??
No, not unless it came today”
heart beat accelerates, mind races
Then let me be the first to tell you that you have been accepted to Framingham. You will be a commuter majoring in Elementary Education, does that sound right?”
mind races, voice is quivering. palms begin to sweat.
Yes, thank you so much.”

and this mail:

countdown to christmas photography style

this december i am going to try to take a picture everyday (or at least one for every day) that has something to do with christmas-lights, decorations, family, church, festivities, etc-and post it here. now, i can promise you now that i will not be posting every day-that's fact. but i will try to have a picture for everyday. :) so without further ado, here is my first.

today is my daddy's birthday....not exactly christmasy but it's festive. :)


this little rose was part of a larger bouquet but unfortunately he broke and thus got his own little vase. i think it's rather cute.
i received the bouquet from the music class i helped with (for kids ages 6-10, part of our home school co-op) after their little performance. i am biased but i think it might just have been one of the cutest things ever. so cute i might just spell it with a "q"
they were quute. so adorably quute.
...on another note-i am proud to say that i shot all of these in manual. :)
