Wedding | Jessica & Barrett | Whitehouse, Texas

The blog has been a bit neglected lately….so much so, I realized today that I had a drafted post from six months ago from my daughter’s wedding I never published!  Wow!  Time gets away so quickly.  Here are a just a few photos I took on the morning of Jessica’s wedding.  The rest of the time I put down my camera and let the hired photographer do her thing and just enjoyed the day!

Perspectives | July 2016

Others may see this as a simple photo of a man at the bottom of the steps looking at his phone.  I see much more beyond the scope of the frame.  I see a man who has had great influence over a school district, & many families. A man who has a great heart for children and young adults.  I see a man who has always been governed by truth in everything that he does. He has led with much patience and wisdom always exemplifying a humble spirit preferring to be in the background quietly working even when he held the title of Superintendent.

This photo has special meaning to me for several reasons.

  1. It was taken at Whitehouse High school….a building he was heavily involved in constructing.  The building where two of our three children attended and graduated high school.
  2. I have very few photos of my husband in his element at work and am thankful to have captured this moment in time.
  3. This photo was unplanned and he was totally unaware that I had turned the camera on him.  We were actually at the school to photograph our youngest daughter receiving her high school diploma.

When education has been such a huge facet of your life, especially at one place for so long, it makes me feel like his retirement is the “end of an era” making the end bittersweet. However, I’m looking forward to the next chapter with great anticipation and the blessing of having him around a little more.

The Legend of the Bluebonnet

The rain brought forth the grass,  Among its blades flower of blue to be a sign for all the time of a love so pure and true ~ Author Unknown

We visited the Bluebonnet trails in Ennis, TX.  It was nice to get away and enjoy the day admiring the fields of lush wildflowers and make some fun memories with family.  Below are just a few landscape shots.  The images do not do them justice!  The fields were just beautiful!
