Disliked Fall

Fall is probably one of my favorite seasons. I’m pretty sure that every season I find something to like and dislike as I eagerly await for the next season, but fall is pretty awesome. I love the changing leaves that make the mountains around here look like they are on fire. One day I’d love to go to Maine and see their changing leaves. Until now I’ll enjoy the fall opportunities around here!

This past season it consisted of photographing for a fall church festival. Here every church seemed to have a sign that they were going to be a hosting a fall festival, on their property. Something that I love about my church is that we hosted a fall festival in an apartment complex, where the people are. I’ve really enjoyed branching out from my stereotypical role in details and administration to follow the passions of my heart through my camera lens!

Speaking of camera adventures…I wanted to check out the foliage at a local park. The one where we had a photo-shoot a few years ago. In doing so I also brought a wedding icon with me…my Cinderella shoes. It was a fun experiment, and a neat way to combine my wedding symbol and that of my cousin in law’s.

We were also able to day trip to a local winery/vineyard. Its a creative place using different types of fruits in their wines. Another neat thing is that this location is also an apple orchard.

There is a small farm on the property filled with farmyard animals, so of course the hubster needed to go interact with them!

And finally I bring you our matching Halloween costumes of 2013. Hippies! (Also, since our party was technically in November weekend…we got our accessories on clearance!) Last year was the first year husband actually wanted to have a matching theme…I’ve realized that it works better if I let him come up with the costume and I figure out how to make it a duet.

  • Cuddled and Adopted a Penguin The weekend before last, I celebrated my birthday up north at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. According to my research its the closest zoo that offers penguin experiences/encounters. (And just $45 for a cheek to beak experience). I’d already lost my heart at one experience with Busch/Seaworld, but I wanted to see the penguins at one of [...]
  • Visited Mill Mountain Zoo           I was craving another animal experience for my birthday, even if it couldn’t involve penguins.

  • Kissed an Alpaca in Amish Country This was another year where I did not have the chance to leave the country, but I was able to visit an Amish community and appreciate their culture.

  • Weathered a Hurricane in OBX Another “Favorite Unblogged 2015 moment” Like most summers/fall we were able to vacation again in the beautiful Outerbanks. We looked forward to this break from work, a chance to travel and relax with friends. As the trip neared closer there was the chance of ugly weather (as there usually is when we plan the trip [...]
  • Marveled at a Lindsey Stirling Concer... Another in the “Favorite 2015 Unblogged Moments” series. Randomly, I discovered Lindsey Stirling and her unique sound of dubstep beats mixed with classic violin via Pandora, and she’s been on of my favorite artists since. Her story of overcoming a horrible critic during America’s Got Talent, is inspiring. In 2015 I was lucky enough to [...]

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
