A Few Photos (+POTP Entries)

Text placeholder-7.png

Howdy, everyone!

We finally had a break from all this rain we’ve been having and I pounced on the opportunity for some pictures!

Also, I am in Meg’s photo contest. (POTP) And some of these shall be my entries. I will label the ones that are(: The category for this is bright/bold, so I tried to stick to that as best as I could(: If you’re interested in joining be sure to go and let her know and have your entries in by March 3rd(:

 

POTP
From Meg’s blog

Let’s go, shall we?

To start out, as my camera was on a 10 second count down, I slipped down a bank in our woods, ending up like this😆


                                        POTP Entries

I’m starting with the photo contest entries. This looks like one I’ve used before, (see HERE 😁) but I love how bright (and PURPLE!💜) and how the colors are fading from day to night.

IMG_0125.JPG

I do love sunsets! I love the bold colors against the silhouette of the foreground objects.

IMG_0124

With a bit of editing, I think this turned out pretty cute! I really enjoyed this one. I really wanted the bold pink color to stand out against the grayscale(:

IMG_9893

Hehe, my brother took this one. It’s funny😂 I like it, again, because of the bright pink color with the blank background.

IMG_9888.JPG

This is when we harvested our sunflowers. I know this isn’t very recent, but it fit the category so well(: Don’t you just love the golden petals of sunflowers?

IMG_8949.JPG

Those are my entries! This theme was fun to take pictures for. Be sure to go visit Meg’s  blog and join! I’m in team fox, and she has a few other teams, too!


 

Okay, now here are some photos I’ve taken over the past three or four days…

So many Springy things have sprung up over the past days of all this rain. It really looked (but I can’t say felt…) like Spring outside today!

Hehe. My friends and I did a photoshoot. Here we are very realistically running, holding hands, through the field😁 I love photoshoots(:

Our creek looks so pure and clean after all the rain that has rejuvenated it!

IMG_9955.JPG

Little Maisy (disobediently…🤔) ran a long way down to the woods to come see where I was… (:

IMG_9967.JPG

The fog this morning was SO pretty coming through the trees, and the picture would’ve been pretty too except..except… the CAMPER!? NOOO!

hEHe..

Isn’t fog gorgeous?

That is it! Thank you so much for reading this, it was fun!

Come by again sometime!

Y’all, be sure to let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see soon, I’ll do my best to do it!

Have a great day!

Some Photos (and something new!)

8th April 2020 Our House 123 Anywhere St., Any City-2.png

Hi! *waves*

Today I have some pictures, (again😄) to show all of you! I have taken a lot the last few days, and they don’t go in any certain category. So here we are! I also have something to tell you at the end(:

To start out, we went to this farm near our house. They have this HUGE dog there that protects their goats from coyotes and bears. He’s about 6′ 5″ on his hind legs. My brother there is on his tip-toes.

Hehe. That look on his face😂

Evan (My Brother) found a wasp nest on the ground.

And that, My friends, is it.

IMG_9494.JPG
I caught Maisy red-handed digging in the mud😖 (It’s pretty funny, though😂)

And that, my friends, is the end. Now, for the “news,” so called, I have a new page I thought I should tell y’all about! It is a page about Young Living™ Essential oils! I’m pretty excited about this one. It was fun to write! Click here to see it(:

I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Do you wear Converse? Have you ever seen that big of a dog? Have you ever heard of Young Living?

Sunsets, Sunrises

Text placeholder-3.png

Hello, Friends!

I went to bed late and got up early for a couple nights/mornings a couple days ago. I took the opportunity to take pictures of the sun rising in the early morning and setting before I went to sleep. (A few of these you might’ve seen before, but they still fit in here😁)

Now, let’s get to it, shall we?

This first one is at, just guessing based on the time I got up, 6:15 a.m. It was still super dark out!

IMG_9349

This is about 20 minutes later. The light comes fast! Look at those pinks way down there!

IMG_9367.JPG

IMG_9358.JPG

I’m pretty 100% sure i’ve already used this a bunch, but I took it a few mornings ago.

IMG_9305

This was blurry but I still love it😍

IMG_9302.JPG

This was the sun setting one night. It’s kind of hard to tell, but this was a pink X in the sky. (Airplanes crossed paths) I thought this was pretty cool. I looked out my bedroom window and, being me, I immediately scurried to get me camera. 🍀

IMG_9369.JPG

Here’s another I’ve used in the past couple days. This is also a sunset. (Isn’t purple so pretty?)

img_8873

This sunset’s clouds look like mountains!

IMG_8878

I don’t know why, but I take a lot of blurry sunset pictures. They look so soft and pretty☺️

IMG_8933.JPG

Well, There ’tis! There weren’t quite as many as I thought, but I hope you enjoyed this post!

Let me know if there’s anything specific you want to see soon. Something Valentine’s Day related? Bullet Journaling? Writing? I’d love to hear from you!

Yet Another Clump

Hello, All!

Do you have any snow? We were supposed to get one inch yesterday, which is about the only amount of snow we get every year. Guess what?

We got 20 MEASLY MINUTES of FLURRIES!!!

😞 Well, there’s Georgia for you.

It seems lately that I have been taking a lot of random photos that don’t really fit in certain posts or categories, so I shall cluster them together in a pile of pixels here! Most of these are quite random, though. Enjoy!

Christmas Countdown, Day 1.

Hi, Everybody!

There are, umm, let’s check the calendars here, let’s see. There’s about, uh.. 20 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!??!! Huh? How is that even possible? It seems like 2018 is going (gone) SO fast! Is that just me?

I decided I would do a Countdown to Christmas (or vice versa, hence the name(: ) It will be the first time that i’ve done something like this on a blog, so we’ll see how it goes! It should be fun!

Here’s how it works:

So, The idea is, I’ll post something everyday (hehe, we’ll see how THAT goes!) that is Christmas themed! I love seeing what other people do around the holidays. It’s such a cheerful, festive time of year!

I’ll post little Christmasy snippets (supposedly (: ) everyday, except Sundays. Enjoy!

                                  Birthday-2

Yay! I’m excited to start. For day one, I will be talking about music! Christmas music is a large part of our music. Our Christmas playlists consist of these, mostly:

AMY GRANT

AMY GRANT

AMY GRANT

HANDELS MESSIAH

AMY GRANT

AMY GRANT

AMY GRANT

AND OTHERS, INCLUDING AMY GRANT (;

As you can see, we like Amy Grant’s Christmas music(:

No, really, we do like Amy Grant’s Christmas albums, but we really like listening to Selah’s Christmas album “The Rose of Bethlehem”,too. It’s really very pretty. I like it because they mix some christian songs with popular and traditional music.

We all enjoy the traditional Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Jackson 5 and such. They’re always good!

I really like Lauren Daigle’s Christmas albums. She has such an amazing, powerful voice!

We all like the Pentatonix Christmas Albums. Oh man, are THEY talented!

What kind of Christmas music do YOU like? Comment below; I’d love to know!

I hope you like my first Christmas snippet for Countdown to Christmas!

What are you doing for the holidays?

Autumn photos/Photo Catch-up

Hello, all!

Wow. It’s been awhile. Let me just see when the last time I posted was…SEPTEMBER 29th?!?!! Oh my!

Better late than never, I always say! {I’ve never said that in my life.} ((;

ANYWAY…

It has quite burst into the colors (and temperatures!) of autumn, and as you know, is on the top of my favorites list. I’ve taken quite a few pictures lately, including some from my photography class. So There’s going to be lots of random photos.

We went to the beach mid-October, came home one day, turned around, and went camping! You’ll see pictures from that, too.

I’ll start from oldest to youngest pictures, which would start with the beach. We traveled to Destin, Florida, which from where we live is about 6-6½ hours. My Dad recently got a motorcycle, so he rode that down there, while we traveled behind in the red ’99 Tahoe(; Maisy went with us. She loves riding in the car!

On the way!

Maisy loved to sit (sleep) in the sunny places. (:                                                                                          Oh! she celebrated her 2nd birthday on the 14th of this month!

IMG_9973.JPG

The last day, the day we left, (pictures below) were cloudy, and I walked back to the beach just before we left.

There was also HORRID red-tide ):

We went camping in Townsend, Tennessee. We took our Pop-up camper, and we saw lots of wildlife while we were there.

Looking Back: Summer

Hello everyone!

I know it turned to Fall (yay!) 5 days ago, I thought I would do a look back on Summer!

IMG_9063

The first thing I posted this summer was my chalk-painted piano transformation post, where, well, I transformed my piano by chalk paint! I really like how it turned out! It still looks good; I really like using chalk paint.

IMG_9104

I made a lot of pillow forts, especially when it was raining, which was a lot of summer, so I made a short post showing one of my forts that I made with a friend.

IMG_9564
A very awkward shot of Maisy

I wrote a long story about our one-year moving journey that was filled with lots of Storage Units, Driving back and forth, and searching for new houses.

IMG_9568

I did (and learned) a lot of Brush Lettering over the summer, and it is one of my favorite things to do! I created a page for it, and i’m attempting to do a tutorial about each letter

IMG_8863

And, last of all, I did my Happy Birthday, Junebugblog! post. My blog celebrated it’s 1st birthday!

Thank you so much for reading!

Happy Fall, All!

Tennessee Photos

2.png

Hi there!

We recently went to the Great Smoky mountains in Tennessee and we went to Cade’s Cove and Roaring fork to look at scenery. I took a great bit of photos I thought i’d share with you! here they are:

IMG_6248

This was entering Cade’s Cove.

IMG_6261

This was the first mountain view you see. We were there right before their annual spring flowers were blooming, although we did see daffodils. This field right now is probably full of wildflowers(;

IMG_6249.JPG

The road (it’s one way, that’s why it’s so narrow) they tried to keep natural, so some of the roads go straight through a creek. That’s why there’s water on the road in this picture.

IMG_6308.JPG

(sorry this is so blurry) We were driving along and I noticed something red in the tree. I was able to get a photo of this woodpecker. We don’t have many of these kinds of woodpeckers in our area of Georgia. It doesn’t really look like it, but this is a very large bird. (Well, not HUGE, but larger than average)

IMG_6321.JPG

IMG_6238

Cade’s Cove has lots of very photogenic, old, old cabins.

IMG_6312

IMG_6263.JPG

IMG_6264.JPG

This is a very old church. (well, the steeple of it, anyway) I was taking this photo through the car window and something about the lighting or something made the top of this photo blue. Hmm… (It does look kind of cool though)

IMG_6242.JPG

Oh, I love deer! (except for when they chew on your garden) The national park has lots of wildlife.

IMG_6247.JPG

You can ride horses for a day through Cade’s Cove.

IMG_6265.JPG

Look at this bark!

IMG_6293.JPG

Here are some more deer. Look at the fawn! so sweet(:

IMG_6252.JPG

I thought this was cool. We were driving through a creek again(:

IMG_6317

Well, I hope you enjoyed! Stay tuned for more posts soon!

Thank you for reading! ~the Junebug blog
