Photo Shoot in the Mountains

Last December, in the midst of typical Christmas chaos, I had wanted to take family photos at the Wichita Mountains. Due to my getting sick and the crazy schedule we had going, we were unable to do that. It took me all the way until June 6 to accomplish that goal! The Wichita Mountains, I… Continue reading Photo Shoot in the Mountains

I Like Ohio

After our tearful goodbye to loved ones in North Carolina, it was a blessing to have something fun to look forward to. Our next stop was Ohio. We enjoyed seeing Terry’s parents and his grandma.

We actually have had some days reach… Continue reading A Boy and His Dog

We are nearing our one year anniversary of living in southwest Oklahoma; one year of seasonal changes, one year of extreme weather experiences, one year of memory making. I don’t know if we had… Continue reading Wisteria Hysteria


Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

My family and I have driven around the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge on several occasions. We’ve seen buffalo, prairie dogs and Longhorn cattle up close. For Christmas, Terry surprised me with a zoom lens for my Nikon camera! (I had planned to save up for it, so getting it at Christmas was a true delight!)… Continue reading Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

We were blessed with a wonderful Christmas holiday. We got to see Terry’s mom, dad and grandmother, as well as my mom. We enjoyed a lot of good food, too! I hope to share some photos of all of that soon. Before we took the tree down, I wanted to try to capture some photos… Continue reading Christmas Photography
