She Who Fears the Lord \\ PHOTO SHOOT



Hey guys, happy Tuesday! What's been up in your life lately? Yesterday I read something that kind of surprised me: that it was 10 days until Thanksgiving! I don't think I realized how fast it was coming up. But yeaaasss! *hearts* Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday, and I'm looking forward to it... Turkey and pumpkin pie, all while gathered with dear family at my aunt and uncle's. <333

Today I'm sharing some pictures from a photo shoot I did with my sister the other day. It was kind of a Bible study\fall themed shoot, and I think I turned up with some nice pictures. :)

Without further ado, my gorgeous sister!


























WHICH PICTURE IS YOUR FAVORITE?? EXCITED FOR THANKSGIVING?

FAVORITE PIC? WHAT DID YOU DO THIS MONTH?? 


More Than Meets the Eye by Karen Whitemeyer || Book Review




MY REVIEW ||


I received More Than Meets the Eye, by Karen Witemeyer, from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. This year I have been in a big reading slump, I guess, so I took forever to finally finish this book. It isn't that it was boring or anything, I've just not been reading. I should have tried harder. 

More Than Meets the Eye is a story of revenge, healing, danger, and love. All the essential, right? *winks* Three orphans who become a family after a terrible tragedy; a mysterious man torn by his past and seeking revenge; and a cheery "fork in the road" that throws careful plans into disarray and puts everyone on a path in the right direction. A path that turns enemies into allies, and breaks down barriers of past pain. 

I wouldn't say I loved this book, but it was a nice story. I guess my ideal type of book is a little different. Maybe the typical Christian historical romance is your favorite though! If you love historical romance with all the sparks, conflict, danger, and happily ever after, this one is for you! :)



* Bethany House Publishers, I apologize for reviewing so late!

that alone place \\ thoughts




sometimes i just want to go somewhere wild and free. 
a high or secluded, quiet place where the wind blows, where the only sound is the rustle of leaves on the trees, and the call of a bird overhead.
where there isn't another soul in sight, and i can just breath and feel.
a rugged rock i can sit on, a deep canyon below, covered in a canopy of forest.
a blue sky with wispy white clouds. the fresh breeze tangling and fingering through my hair, brushing past my closed eyes.
just a special place where it's just me and God and nature, where my heart can be filled, where my lungs can breathe deep, where tears can fall free. 

there i think i could unfill and be filled. 
refresh, and get away from the world and all the man-made things and just listen to the comforting sounds and sights and feels of God's things.

a place to ponder, wonder, and ask.







{p.s. this song is beautiful}

October Scenes at My House \\ VIDEO \\



HEY, guess what? I finally made another video. Remember my first one, way back in May (first besides those baking videos)? I just finally decided to go out and film another one the other day. I know my camera doesn't have the best quality videoing, but I think it's a fun little video anyway. Just some of the scenes around our property. ^__^

Also, I'm socially awkward, AND video awkward. Lol. xP I sound kind of annoyed at one part... just my video-awkwardness I guess. I tried videoing that beginning part over more than once, and this is the one I went with. :P

It's pretty short and unprofessional (obviously), but I hope you enjoy it!







WHAT DO YOU THINK? ANY CERTAIN VIDEO\ TYPE OF VIDEO YOU'DE BE INTERESTED IN ME DOING?

RAINY AUTUMN PHOTO SHOOT \\ red and denim outfit + Thoughts on Seasons



Hey people! A happy, happy weekend to you all! *big smile*


What is your favorite season? spring, summer, fall, or winter? If you've been around here long enough, you probably know that, though I'm asking YOU this question, I probably couldn't answer it myself. Because I'm bad with favorites. And you'd be right xP 
But I think that's okay. I like all the seasons. I think I'm usually ready for the next season when it comes. Each one is special. Every one has it's own unique and beautiful characteristics. Lends to you it's own special feeling. 
Seasons keep life exciting! Y'ALL. I would never want it to be one season all year long. Like, how boring. Do you agree? Or could you happily live in one season forever? Let me know in the comments. *winks*

Where I live, fall is definitely here. Last Sunday it was kinda wet, and definitely overcast. My sister agreed to take some pictures of me in my church outfit (and I edited them).  I loved the slightly foggy, cloudy setting! Made for the perfect fall photo shoot. And my sister did good... I think maybe she should be my assistant when I start my photography business. ;P




that shirt. i found it at Goodwill rrecently. <3











WOULD YOU WEAR THIS OUTFIT? THOUGHTS ON SEASONS? SUNNY FALL DAYS, OR CLOUDY? (i like both xP *sorry not sorry*)
