California Poppies

Into a sea of poppies we fled.

Bryant takes some really rad photos.
For two months every year, the California poppies take full bloom. My two B's {Bryant and Bela} and I took an adventure to the Antelope Valley to see what all the hype was about.
The day was perfect. 
The wind was strong. 
The sun was blasting. 
The poppies were overwhelming, 
and it felt like we could've stayed there forever.

I've missed my camera.

Attemp #7 {at least} with the self timer.

Fruit for Sharon

Last year, I painted Flowers for Sharon, as a gift for my dear friend, Corinne's mother. 
For her birthday this year, Corinne asked me to paint fruit to match decorative plates in Sharon's kitchen. 

The challenge was waiting. I had to wait for each little petal and piece of fruit to dry before I could add more to the picture. If I didn't wait all the colors would run together. I love watercolor. It teaches me patience.

The Here & Now.

I awake in gratitude of you, 
Oh Lord.
My soul is content in knowing you love me
for who I am
Right here. Right now.

The Hands I Hold

I miss this:

These were some of my favorite moments during the two weeks of camp in Kenya.
At any point point of time in the day there would be at least one kid's hand in yours. 

This is love, and it is so simple.

Hangin from a Cloud

I have no idea who created this photo, but I enjoy it. I would like to be that girl on the swing....
