Photo Dump

I've been having lots of fun playing with my new (rental) 85mm so I thought I would dump some photos here. I always love how a new lens can give you a new perspective on things! Lately it seems like poor Scampy is my most willing photographic subject. I was taking photos of him in the yard and I was like, "what am I doing? Am I one of those people who only take photos of their cat now??". It was a humbling moment for me.

 (although.... doesn't Scampy look so handsome?)

We've still been trying to soak up these last nice days and we know all too well that are numbered. Michael's sandbox is lots of fun for him after school and it gives me time to play with him or poke around my garden.

I love peeking in on these two! I will never ever ever get tired of reading bedtime books to Michael...these are such a precious time for us. I hope it is something I hope we continue for a long time and in to chapter books. I've learned so many things from reading books and love what books can teach us (whether fiction or non). I hope that Michael has the same love for reading as I do. 

However, with the calendar turning to October this week and the leaves changing and the feel of fall in the air....I can't help but think of our sweet Trace and the day we lost him (Oct 10th). I keep seeing this post on pinterest that is something like, "I thank God that I live in a world where there are Octobers" and it just hits me every time...makes me think about how sad the month of October is for me. When I see glimpses of trees with leaves turning I think, "oh that is so beautiful" but inside I feel the pang of sadness that yes, fall is coming and with it the reminder of my son's last days here on earth with us.

I am sure I will post more about it later but that is where I am right now. I'm keeping super busy at school and getting ready for Michael's birthday but as always, my sweet Trace is on my mind.


  1. Please know that your sweet Trace is on many other people's mind and hearts as well, especially as we go into October. There are lots of people who are praying you and your family through this particularly difficult time in your journey of grief, I hope you can feel the love and prayers and know that you are not alone in your sadness. He was (and still is) a very precious gift, and I'm sure you miss him so very much. We are all here with you.

  2. Ditto! Much love this month and always, my dear friend!
