My rose bushes are still giving me beautiful roses!! I am so happy! I don't know about you, but I think roses are the most beautiful flower God ever created. I love to smell them too! They have such a wonderful smell, don't you think?
Here are a few photos I took the other day:

And this is just a photo I happen to like...for some reason.

I love photography! Out of all the different subjects, my favorite is people, so I will try to get some more sessions booked here before long and share a few with you. And I cannot wait until I am blessed enough to get to share a wedding shoot with you!!
Until next time,

Oh, Boy!

What a blessing having a child can be! But oh! What work! I have a boy that just turned three last week, and he sure keeps me busy. I am surprised every day at how quickly he learns things from me - things I never even knew he seen! And how it makes my heart flutter when he crawls up in my lap and hugs me. Last night, he crawled up beside me, grabbed my cheeks in his hands and said, "Mommy listen!" When I asked him what he wanted, he simply said, "I love you!" Now that is enough to make all those long nights and hard days worth every minute! Don't you think?

I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful son!
Until next time,

Photos from the (fairly recent) past...

This past summer, I had the privelege to once again get to travel to Tennessee to see my grandparents there. It was just my son and me out on the roads, seeing the sights that have become so familiar to me. So, on the way back, I decided to detour a bit, and see places I have never viewed before. Frozen Head State Park was where I landed, and here are a few of the sights I seen....

I couldn't help but notice the beautiful flowers and butterflies that covered an area at the entrance of one of the trails!
And I would have felt bad not to take a picture of these forgotten trucks from years before.

What a beautiful little wedding chapel this was!

Beautiful, isn't it?

Have I ever mentioned before that I LOVE the mountains??

Oh, and flowers? :-)

The beauty of nature and God's amazing handiwork never fail to astound me!
What a wonderful world God has given us!!

Until later,

Just a lazy day...

These days, life is like race cars on the track - things move so quickly that we forget to just stop and take time to enjoy the beauty of life itself. All of the many, beautiful things God has put on this earth to enjoy, and we speed right past them! Take time out of your busy day to go for a walk with me - down the train tracks!!

Oh, the beauty of fall colors...

Pay attention to detail! Even the small things need appreciation!

Find a new perspective!

Never ignore the sunshine!

Fall is one of my two favorite seasons, and I love to capture it's beauty in my photography!

Until next time,

The Rickard Family

Wow! How quickly time flies by when we have children! It seems like forever while we're pregnant, and then, once they're born, we blink our eyes and they're half-grown! I recently done a photoshoot for my brother-in-law and his wife, who had their first baby 6 weeks ago! My first nephew! I was sooooo excited to get to do this!!!

Please, feel free to comment, and tell me what you think!
Until later,
