Spring is still here.

Isn’t it chaotic? The world, I mean.

IMG_1077

It seems like everywhere you look, or listen, there is some new news. Some new discovery or new report of this illness.

IMG_1079

I was in the midst. I have been caught up in checking where it was, how it’s spreading, and we partly joined in the worry. (Boy, I’ve never gone to the grocery store so much! XD)

Just because there’s something scary going on in the word, doesn’t mean the world stops.

The flowers bloom, the birds, in their tumultuous songs, are everywhere.

I took a drive in our old golf cart around the property the other day and realized,

Nature goes on. God doesn’t stop Spring and turn it grey to suit the mood. It’s as beautiful as it always is.

I don’t know what to make of this pandemic. It is scary. But we can’t let our fear or worry let us forget that there is still beauty. And behind it a God who loves and cares deeply, more deeply than we can fathom, for US.

I know this is happening to people who you may know, maybe your close family, maybe you. I hope and pray everything will be well, I truly do.

God loves you. It’s a wonderful thing to remember in a time like this. He can turn ugly into beautiful, awful into wonderful.

I just wanted to share some thoughts I have during this time. I hope you are doing well and are safe at home. I am praying for you. Be well!

How is the pandemic where you are? Are you at home for awhile? What are you doing during this time?

Hath Spring Sprung? // A Collection

Hello everyone! How are you? Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Do you do anything to celebrate?

Spring is getting near and the signs are everywhere! Ah, *sniffs* Spring!

Everything’s fairly bursting with buds and color and blooms and petals, isn’t it lovely?

I’ve taken a few pictures lately and I thought I would share! ❤

All this reminds me of a poem I made when I was probably, uhh.. 7 or 8:

“Spring has sprung in the air so people can enjoy it everywhere.”

Speaking of Spring, the fourth annual Spring100 starts on the 19th! It’s a wonderful challenge hosted by Rachel from Shiloh photography.  You walk (or run) 100 miles by the time Spring ends (June 20th). Rachel has made it very easy to go to her website and log your miles every Monday along with some sweet pictures from other families doing the challenge, you can even send one in yourself! It’s so fun, and a great thing to do in the lovely Springtime. I will be doing it with my Mom for our second year, I’m excited! Hop on over to Shiloh Photography and sign up!

We recently made a trip to Savannah, GA for about a week. While I was there I was very happy to be able to take some around-the-town photos of the wonderful and lovely Molly Elizabeth Gibson.

We had a lot of fun walking from place to place snapping photos, and I was enjoying the BEAUTIFUL Savannah scenery.

Speaking of Molly Elizabeth, she just released her new music video, Danny Boy! Since it’s a famous Irish song, and since today’s St. Pat’s, Have a listen! You’ll be glad you did. SO pretty. ❤

While we were there, we got to spend quite a bit of time with sweet cousins and family at my Aunt’s house.

I love taking photos like these. Looking back upon them, you can almost feel you’re there, right there, in the moment.

I believe that’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed this little clump of photos!
