sneak peeks of layouts and life

i've been playing with some cosmo cricket goodness & have a few quick sneak peeks of layouts that will be up on the scrap review on monday. keep an eye out for the review on their new togetherness line.

i believe in you {detail}

friends & family {detail}

real life has been rolling on, making more and more opportunities to put memories on paper and in our hearts. on friday stan reenlisted in the military. the girls and i got to watch, proud as can be, as he was sworn in. i think back to when we were first married, never thinking the navy would end up as a career. but here we are with complete peace that this is the very place God has us to be regardless of the trails that sometimes accompany it... perhaps exactly because of that.



i've been on a sunburst kick lately for my daily pictures... so i figured i'd try it through our japanese maple, since the color of the leaves is so beautiful. perhaps funnier is that torrey was all hunched up because she had to go potty, and i kept say... "just one more picture!" :)

Faith can move mountains, 
but don't be surprised if God hands you a shovel.

Hi Noel. I regularly follow your blog but usually don't commented. I just wanted to send my heartfelt thanks to you and your family for your service to our country. Stan may have been the one to take the oath but I know it takes a family committment. Many blessings to you all and may God continue to keep you safe.

I love your picture of the moon. I have tried for years to take a picture like this one. What settings did you use.

I also wanted to extend my gratitude to you and your family for the service to our country. I am an Air Force Brat and I know how hard your job is.
