It was a rude awakening. And still, I'm excited at the same time. The end of summer break means that fall will settle upon us soon, in all it's crisp freshness. I was always a summer girl at heart, and it's only been in the past two years that I've felt this welcoming of Autumn - instead of utter dread. It also means that soon there will be another cute little face around here during the days since I will be caring for my niece when my sister and brother IL go back to teaching. We have missed her peppiness - especially bug.
So although I am suddenly feeling EXTREMELY overwhelmed with all I hope to squeeze into a week, I'm not begrudging the impending end of summer "freedom." And that is a happy feeling. So, on to happy photos to commemorate!
mini in the sprinklers at the park. It was only last week that she and bug finally decided they weren't atrocious torture devices bent on their destruction. Much to my enjoyment.
|Same sprinkler... I just liked how the light played off the water. Wish I knew how to capture that better.|
|Looking up through the tree in my backyard. Could I replicate this lighting, contrast, brightness, depth of field? I WISH.|
I admit it. I got nothing for this one. Does this count at all? Maybe kinda?
