Sunflowers

Today, we FINALLY got an opportunity to visit the The Anderson’s Sunflowers in Cumming, GA.  It was an awesome place to visit!  I love sunflowers and really enjoyed being around so many of them.  It is a wonderful place to take pictures and a photographer’s dream!  You can even buy some to take home with you or pick your own! Hope you enjoy and if you have a chance, go for a visit and take your camera!

Sammy’s New Collar and Leash

My dog, Sammy, is such a ham!  I think he knows how cute he is.  Today, I put a new collar and leash on him made from my friend at www.stitchpet.com.  He loved it.  Of course, he got excited because he was going for a walk but he strutted around our house right by my side until we went OUTSIDE.  I took him outside to get a few pictures and of course, he was so patient, obedient, and did what I needed him to do.  He’s such a good boy.

If you are looking for unique gift ideas, check out www.stitchpaint.com.  They have some really cute handmade products.  They also made this leash and collar by hand.  The leash and collar set is soft, cute, comfortable, AND durable.  The leash also comes with a cute poo bag holder.  Check out their website and their products and don’t forget to shop for your furry friends.  Sammy approves for sure!!

Oh Deer!

We live in an area where there are lots of deer.  They usually move around together.  It is not uncommon for the deer to be in our front yard, taking naps in our back yard, or crossing the street.  Today this beauty was alone and spent a lot of time in our front and side yard.  This deer had darker coloring than normal and was very shiny.  So beautiful.  So happy they like our yard.

Capturing the Joy

This beautiful photo came across my Facebook Memories this morning.  It was my son’s final Field Day in Elementary School last year.  This perfectly captures the JOY and happiness on his face as he was running under a parachute that his classmates were holding up.

I’m so thankful to have these memories, especially today on Mother’s Day.  This is one of my favorites shots of my son that will always hold a special place in my heart.

That face.  That smile.

I’m so thankful to be his MOM.

The Forgotten Gem

I was scrolling through some pictures on my computer that I took back during our Fall season.  I hadn’t taken many pictures that day so I don’t think I every paid much attention to the folder that had been sitting there. Knowing us we were probably headed to the Braves Game right after this game.  Anyway, I found this pic and was very happy with it.  Very little editing needed to be done.  This pic was taken in late afternoon, it was hot (it was September) and this captures my son perfectly doing what he loves best.
