Gratitude ~ Day 16

Today, I finally had the chance to finish up some pictures I took way back in September!  I love capturing great images that help me think and reflect.  The first few are from some shots I took to test out my new macro lens.

These next few are from our last weekend spent camping in northern Michigan.  Do you see the deer bedded down right outside someone’s walkout basement?

She looks like a real explorer!  And when did she get so TALL!

Family, Fun and Freedom

As we made our way slowly down from the U.P. just yesterday, stopping for a wonderful visit with a friend and her precious girls, Garth and I talked about how much this getaway has been absolutely perfect for us.

We’re savoring every moment with family, watching Calder grow and connect with cousins, aunts, grandparents and more.  And while we can’t be with everyone we’d like to be this holiday weekend, we send our love and well-wishes to each of you.

Since we’re all a little sun-kissed, and dirty-footed, I figured tossing in some unprocessed photos would fit the theme of the laid-back weekend quite well.  Here’s a little dose of red, white, and blue from around Great Grandma’s place!
