Our Little Patch Of Heaven


I never fully enjoyed their property at it's full potential before, and man, did I miss out!

Jon grew up on about 5 acres formed of hills, filled with animals, and decorated with a country heart.  And with a collection of all things vintage, classic and country I am in photo heaven.

And we've been spending these beautiful January days roaming the grounds, chasing the kitties, eating dirt, and studying the chickens.  And the fun at Grandma and Grandpa Stark's house is ENDLESS!













The love of my life always goes back to his working man roots whenever he's there.  No matter how city livin I try to make him.  He'll always be one with the land.  And I actually kind of love it!

It's this man is the one who brings me my confidence and fills my heart with Beauty.  It's this man who made my heart feel ALIVE!  He brings out the flirt in me, the sillies in me, and the all around BEST in me!  He is that special someone I close my eyes to and the special someone I awake to each day!







She Breathes Deeply


He's my best friend who takes pretty pictures of me- and I kinda like it *wink*



Our days of fun in the sun might be numbered, but I have to say, we've been doing our best to soak it up- and here, on this little patch of heaven, we've been livin' it up!

    And great photos of the hub. My husband hates being in front of my camera. He is so not a poser!
    And my favorite are the last ones of you...the sun flare is to die for and that black and white???? Forget about it {in my very best Joey Tribiani voice!!}

    Great post...so glad you have enjoyed your time connecting with Gods artwork!!

  16. Your family is SO cute! You all look sooo happy. It's so refreshing =]

    And yes, we've both been to Africa twice. The first time in 2009 and the second in 2010. We're hoping there will be another trip this summer because it's so hard to wait between trips. We go to Ethoipia and we work in an orphanage through our church. It's completely changed my life. Have you been?
