Country Family & Country Friends.

Yesterday I had the treat of 1) being off work for the first time in FOREVER and 2) getting to see my entire family for, again the first time in forever to celebrate our family Thanksgiving. Even though my family lives pretty close I work so much that I never get the time to go and visit. Their home is always so full of life with kids and animals running about that it really is a special getaway when I get to go visit, not to mention the land and scenery that I get to photograph!

Since I haven't had time to go pick up a tripod at Target like you all recommended (thanks!), I lent my boyfriend a few pretty pleases to do the job. I think he did so well that I'm kinda wising he was around more often during the day to do it all the time!

Ponder by the pond.

Poses.

Here's my little buddy Dakota that I got when I was 13. He's the best dog I've ever owned, and although he's still doing well it's kinda sad to see him getting so old. Oh dear, you'll have to pardon Suzie for her unladylike manners!

Pardon the cleaning.

A new found friend.

Reflections.

Friends.

I'd like to get to know you a little better.

Lets get to know each other.

Follow me.

An  enchanted forest.
