Photos and Spoils

It has been a rough past three days for me. But I can say that with what has happened, it has helped to make me a stronger person (in some ways I suppose). We recently lost one of our little bottle baby goats. It hit me in a weird way too. I tried all that I knew and could do to save the little thing, but sadly he passed away right in front of me. It is a weird (heart wrenching) thing to watch an animal die, minute by minute, right in front of you...and there is nothing you can do.

On more positive notes....

Yes, yes I did. I finally buckled and got what I have been wanting and eying for quiet some time...but could just pursue financially at the time. A medium Saddleback Leather Notepad Chestnut. Beautiful item. Pulling it out of the package was a fun experience too! And the smell of leather...yea, bliss. I am already putting his to good use. Maybe in the future I will be able to afford a nice leather bag - you know, something that a mom can carry ALL the things she needs in (journals, pens, tablets, baby clothes, diapers, wipes, makeup, wallet, etc) lol.

Lately, I have been doing a lot of reflecting on my life. Not in a good, or bad way necessarily, but in a constructive sense (more or less). I look at where I am at in my life. There are some things I might consider changing (like whether or not I would rather go back into the work force or continue to be a stay-at-home mom). Where I once was years & years ago mentally, physically, spiritually, and where I have thus ended up today. Today: I have two beautiful boys (for which I am thankful for, even if we never get a little girl I refuse to have acceptance issues like I know some women struggle with), I have a loving, caring, and hard working husband who has helped build this family, and I have a loving, gracious, and merciful God that I serve, who I have built a relationship with over the years. From age 17 to 27, I have taken one hell of a ride in life. A life full of trials, challenges, and successes that has helped shape me into the person I am today.

My passion for journals, pens, and photography (okay, and horses too!) continues to grow. I enjoy the simpler things in life, not necessarily the finer things, but simplicity.... The moments in life with the ones you love, not the things you buy. Those moments where you cherish every living second. Well, with that being said, I would like to share some photos that I have taken in the past weeks and end this post with that.

Don't think he will like Lemons anytime soon, LOL

Curiosity "What's that?"

"Looking Back..."
