Day 112::11.4.17 A quiet Saturday morning. The day is starting out with the sun desperate to shine, but it’s not winning. A soft light from the kitchen casts it glow across the Wonder Dog as she lays her in favorite place.

Day 111::11.3.17 When the weather becomes cool and you spend more time inside, your mind & hands need to keep busy. So you remember what your grandma taught you so many years ago & you try your hand at making a sweater.

Day 110::11.2.17 You are the bright spot in our lives little man. When people told me you’d never understand the love of being a grandparent until you became one, I didn’t get it. I thought I knew love when I met my husband, then we had our sons. They grew up and both married beautiful girls who brought so much more joy to our family. I thought my heart was full. But then you came along, oh my. They were right - everyone of them. A grandchild brings about a whole new level of love in your heart & soul. Poppi & Grammi are head over heels for you little man. ❤️

Today is November 1st. I have planted my feet at school & then at church as we paid tribute to my cousin who has now gone home to his glory. He has left a legacy to be remembered. He has shown many what hope is when they feel there is none left. He will live on in our hearts & memories. Thanks for the memories cousin - I will meet you again one day!

Day 107::10.30.17 Clinging to the branch, kind of like I am trying to cling to the warmth of summer days. But I believe that the weather has turned the corner and is in the final stages of fall.

Day 106::10.29.17 ‘Tis the season of falling leaves.
This fall has not been as colorful as years past due to the extra dry summer & the leaves dropping due to drying up.
Soon it will be snow falling - but not too soon please.

Day 105::10.28.17. Family mini session on a cold blustery fall afternoon. In the span of 30 minutes we had wind, cold, sun & then rain. But it didn’t damper the spirits of this family of five!

Day 104::10.27.17 Posted — Private Property! An aged post with an even more aged posting. A farmers field recently harvested and the signs of the end of the season are apparent everywhere.

When you hand over your camera so mom can satisfy her curiosity.
Mom be like, “we should do a few more.”
Senior be like, “nah - 400+ shots are good mom!”

It’s amazing how removing the color from your photograph can totally change the mood and contrast.
I find that going black & White will sometimes bring a whole new life to a portrait that wasn’t seen in living color.

Day 100::10.23.17 Another rain system has moved into our region.
But the textures in the back yard between the wet leaves & the rough rocks bring beauty in a different way.

Day 99::10.22.17 Fitting in sessions between what seems like unending rain. The rivers & lakes are so swollen around here. A very big contrast to the drought conditions we had just 2 months ago.

Day 98::10.21.17 I don’t know how old these steps really are, but they were here 26 years ago when we moved into our little village
This old metal slide has stood the test of time. Can you imagine how much laughter & joy this has brought to how many children?
How many little legs were lifted quickly when realizing the sun has heated it up? How many little legs have stuck to it, screeching all the way down? How many little bodies have been caught at the bottom by an awaiting mommi or daddi?
Oh the stories this old metal slide could share. Can you imagine?

Day 94::10.17.17 Not everyday is a pretty one. Not every day comes smelling like roses - especially this one. When you come home from work to find your Wonder Dog has made an awful mess & the smell hits you in the face the moment you walk in the door. You know she isn’t feeling well.
