The thing about my phone camera that I love:
I take a *lot* more pictures of daily moments . . . because it’s with me everywhere we go.
The thing about my phone camera that I don’t always like so much:
I pick up my sweet old SLR less often to get those really quality shots.
But today I was looking back over the “capturings” on this sweet old SLR
and decided it was time to do just a little documenting of a few special moments
at summer’s end and the beginning of autumn.
We spend a really great August weekend in Indiana with my Dad’s family on the farm
where I was born and raised the first 10 years of my life.
It was *so* good to see cousins and their children, aunts & uncles again . . . and of course MY family!
These are my lovely sisters in law, sister Katelyn, my beautiful mother, and my daughter.
Sleepy-head summer mornings when bed-heads are common and I could just mush all four of them to pieces . . .
Summer sun and fruits and flowers in my kitchen . . . bringing us their last bits of joy before the next season of loveliness:
apples, pumpkins, mums, and other goodies replace them.
Harvest Season beginning . . . fields turning golden . . .
A visit to Virginia in mid September to visit Phil’s grandmother, tour grand caverns, take in a friend’s barn sale,
visit his aunt, and just enjoy some family time together. It was a lovely time!
The pies above are a gift of love from a grandmother to her grandson . . . because she knows that he has always loved her coconut cream pies!
She is a fascinating woman with stories to tell and a gallery of paintings that she has worked on over the years.
