Blog Schedule

So I am going to try to get back into the habit of posting.  I am about to start my third month at my new job, and things are finally starting to settle into my new normal.  Praise Jesus.  I refuse to give up on my quest to improve my photography, so I am going to attempt to lay out a new schedule.

  1. Retrospect Monday- So, instead of Serene Sunday, I am going share my flash backs here.
  2. "Tuesday Tips"- this is the day I am going to try to post pics using tips from Live, Love, Travel. 
    • This will probably be really hit or miss, definitely not a weekly thing.
    • heres the website- 
  3. Mr. Winks Wednesday- Mr. Winks is still the love of my life  :  )
  4. Thursday-Sunday I am going to try to post new pictures. 
    • if I can post new pictures once or twice a week then I will be happy.

I am also going to post as I edit pictures for my new desk, I am trying to find ways to integrate inspirational quotes into some of my favorite pictures.  I love being able to look up and see my favorite places.

That's all for now, it is so strange for me to look back at these last several months, and see how my expectations and my skills have changed.

Love Always,

Retrospect Monday: Napoli

I stayed in the small town of Napoli for one night.  Just enough time to take some pictures, have a Delicious dinner, and eat some refreshing chocolate gelato.

The building in the back ground used to be a prison, now I believe it is a museum.

This was just a lucky moment.  This always remindes me of an Ansel Adams quote, she said "Sometimes I get places just when God's ready to have someone click the shutter."  The way the light is falling on the building's facade, the vine of flowers that is barely hanging onto the buildings, and the vivid colors just work together.

Love Always,

Retrospect Monday: Mykanos

There are pelicans that wander the Island of Mykonos, I didn't want to get to close but they were beautiful.

I can't imagine getting too much work done if I was looking out at this beautiful site each day.

This happens to be one of my favorite pictures from my trip.  In my mind, everything just seems to work.  I love the croooked street sign, the boat in the distance, and the vivid red of the church.

Love Always,

Retrospect Monday: Santorini

Other then Turkey, Santorini was my absolute favorite place.  It was sooooo beautiful.

The water is sooooo blue, and the stark white buildings against the blue is beyond amazing.

Oh my word, how I love windmills.  I only wish the sails has been up.

Many families have these  small churches, that look like they could only hold 10-20 people.  Our guide told us that families hold services on their patron saints fiest days.

This was the main church on the square and I had to really control myself because all I wanted to do was pull the stings for the church bells.

Love Always,
