Weekend Exploring #1

I will be headed down to Tampa to watch my good friend get married on farmland that she and her soon-to-be husband just purchased. There is a theme going around my life about taking risks, just doing what you love instead of just talking about it, and the fear/vulnerability that comes from such big leaps. How can you relate? Enjoy exploring the web with what is below and have a great weekend!

I want to go on a Job Journey to Norway. What an idea!? Can the United States do this with...Scotland? Fiji? Italy? Belize? Please!

Bourbon chocolate milkshake, anyone? It would be nice by a fire. And Ben Johnson from West Egg Cafe in Atlanta came up with this little idea. So I trust it.

For a dose of reality of what is happening in our world from American Photo Mag. These images are powerful. The fifth one really got me. 

Did you see these wedding flowers from Once Wed yesterday? Proof that beauty doesn't have to be expensive. God made us to create it with what He already created. 

Have you watched this yet? Oh, the awkwardness of middle school. Warning: it is literally almost painful to watch. But it is too funny.


  1. Oh. My. Word. Where did you find this middle school video!?

  2. Thanks for sharing! This is my first visit to your blog....I'll be back!


  3. There's a book contract in that girl's future, I know.

    Love the picture!

  4. What a lovely blog you have. My brain is suddenly clicking and clacking in that happy way that occurs when I read a good book or visit a clever blog. Thank you.

  5. Love the photo! Just a glimpse of her eyes through the swirling leaves.

  6. I love the shot, is it a photo of you?

    1. Nope! I realized right after I submitted the link on your blog that it was supposed to only go to personal photos. A 'pregnancy brain' moment for which I apologize! I love your blog so much. I just recently discovered it and have loved adding books to my list that you recommend. Thankful for it!

  7. Great video! Love the swirling leaves picture too - very cool.

  8. Beautiful and thought provoking images :) Can't wait to see more!
