These are a Few of My Favorite Things . . .

I went on a little photo walk around my home, with the intent of capturing images of a few of my favorite things to share with you all.  I know some photographers post galleries of their favorite things and usually include things like Starbucks, Tim Hortons, their favorite car, their pet, etc.

Mine will probably look a little different from theirs.  😉

So, without further ado, here goes!

Notes from our kids!!  This one was written this past Friday night and taped to our kitchen cupboards for us to find when we got home from an engagement shoot.  These will always melt a parent’s heart!

Good lip gloss.  I don’t leave home without it.  Although I’m constantly experimenting on the newest, most natural kinds.  I recently found that I really like coconut oil, but it’s not easy to transport.  🙁

Chairs!  Especially old ones like this with lots of character.  I’ll be taking it with me to shoot seniors this summer.  Oh, yeah!

Garden seeds.  I have way too many.  But, I love to garden.  And when worse comes to worse and I’m tired of planting, I just broadcast them (scatter them all around, keep them damp, and hope it works out).

Dr. Martens boots.  I always own a pair.  They’re sturdy, comfy, and last a loooooooong time!!  I’m about ready to replace these ones after more than 3 years.  I wear them to church and to garden.  Seriously.  So, even at $100 a pair, for me, they’re still a bargain!

My preferred exercise: gardening.  Sunshine, fresh air, pulling stuff up, planting stuff in; I LOVE IT!!

“Grocery shopping” the way I like it!  We currently have 25 laying hens and collect around 21 eggs daily.  If you’ve never tasted farm fresh eggs, the ones on store shelves don’t even compare!

A pear tree that we planted about 5 years ago finally producing!!

Strawberries.  They’re in my genes.  My family has one of the best-known strawberry farms in Michigan, Howard Farms.  I grew up picking, planting, and weeding them.  So, when we started our own garden, strawberry plants were a given.

So, this is me.  And a peek at a few of the things I enjoy.  What would be on your list?
