Grow Your Blog

Welcome Grow Your Blog friends...

I Hate Selfies....

I am
mom
wife
sister
photographer
hot sauce connoisseur
never remembering where I put that thing 
 visual
contemplative
spontaneous
daydreamer
christian
broccoli hater
i was sure it was here somewhere 
suburban girl
italian food junkie
retired soccer mom
soon to be empty nester
thrifter
i know it was in a really good place 
trespasser
vintage collector
history buff
napper
introvert
what was i looking for again
easily distracted
day tripper
mountain lover
solitude seeker
memory keeper

I'd Rather Be Behind the Camera

and
pretty much the opposite
of the Mr. Engineer I married
who always knows where he puts everything.
Once every 6 months or so Mr. Engineer reads my blog
and finds out where I've trespassed,
what I've photographed,
and the secrets I've revealed.
That's when the fun begins...

Day Dreaming

Seeking to be inspired 
and 
inspire others. 

2 Bags Full


The Party's Here! Where I am linking these days.

  1. I think you did GREAT with your selfies :) You have to do what you are comfortable with, and this was perfect. I always put things in that "special place" what I need to work on is keeping the special place the same every time.

  2. i know you don't like to be in front of the camera, but i love the first photo and the last photo is WONDERFUL... it says daydreamer perfectly and is also beautiful as are you... you must have used a tripod and timer OR did mr Engineer snap this one... i enjoyed your list of who you are... some of them apply to me. I say bring on the selfies... i am a bread junkie... that food group includes Pizza

  11. I think there is a difference between the occasional self portrait and continuous selfies that scream "look at me, I need attention!". I prefer the former. Your photos are very nicely done.

  25. What beautiful photographs! My husband is one of my followers and reads almost every post. He has found out more about quilting and crafting in the last year than he ever wanted to know!! I read your line below the comment form, and you'll have a few clicks to get to my real blog (should you choose to try, LOL), I am only on blogger so I won't be a no-reply. Google doesn't play nice with Wordpress.

  26. Rebecca, I like your captioning and background telling the story with your pictures. Never would have found you with GYB--so a new follower for sure. Impressive concept.
