Look Up...

Look Up...

How many times a day do you look at the sky?

We rush around....meeting with people, working, shopping, eating, etc.

Take time to look up and be thankful for the beautiful sky, family and the many blessings we have.

I am going to be better at this very thing!

Love, Jennifer

Hobbies that inspire...

This past year I decided that I would try out some new "hobbies". I have always considered myself an art lover. In college...I minored in art...and loved the great feeling of completing oil paintings, watercolor paintings, drawings, and even basket making (that is an actual class)! So, I wanted to feel that feeling again...and decided that I would take some art classes here locally! It was great! It inspired me to try some new things...I have worked on some abstract paintings...and I have bought a camera to try out my picture taking skills! Fun!!! This is a photo of a tree at Page's grandfather's farm. We spent many evenings out there this year for some bird hunting...and amateur photo sessions! Abby and Sadie (our German Shorthair Pointers) were fun "subjects"...but they were quick! I missed many shots because of their speed...but that is part of the fun I suppose! The camera I bought is actually a 35mm camera (bought on e-bay) this has been quite a challenge. I have read some books, ruined numerous rolls of film... and I have finally taken some pictures worthy of sharing with someone. They aren't great...but it's a start!

Photo taken on our 2009 Port Aransas Vacation..."Walking on the beach at sunrise".  
Can you hear the seagulls?

I am not sure why...but I really feel that 2010 will be the year for some great things! It is off to a great start...

I know that it is still January....but I am really getting ready for sunshine and beautiful days...which means trips to Port Aransas! Since I was a child we have traveled to Port Aransas during the summer. When I board the ferry and hear the seagulls...nothing else seems to matter. The memories in Port A are always happy ones...and I am fortunate that I married someone with that same love for the coast!!

Happy New Year!


I haven't written on this blog in forever...but thought I might give it another try.

I love reading other people's thoughts...but need to get in touch with my
own thoughts! Maybe this will help give me some time to do that.

Happy New Year...may this year be filled with love, new friends, old friends, family, trips to the beach, cooking, wine and laughter!
