Currently: May



Planning
on ordering a new camera this week. It took me awhile, but I finally decided on the Nikon D7200 with a Nikkor 35mm  f/1.8 lens. Initially I thought would purchased a full frame DSLR but then decided otherwise when I borrowed a friend's camera and it was a dream to use. Furthermore, I
am not a professional photographer and I don't have unlimited funds. I  really wanted something that could handle low light situations and be compatible with my other lenses. The D7200 fit those requirements.

Painting
an old headboard that I found on the side of the road... its been a work in progress for a couple weeks now. I used to finished a piece of furniture in a couple hours... now it takes me a couple months.

Working
on a birth preferences sheet for a client I will be supporting next month.

Learning
about  victim impact statements and the healing they can bring to those who have been victimized.

Dreaming
about the day that Levi sleeps through the night consistently, doesn't want to be held 24/7 and will allow someone other than me to do things for him.

Longing
for rolling green hills, dogwood trees and river views

Designing
my dream home (if we ever build one) using a program called floor planner.

Eating
roasted yams and brussel sprouts. No one else in my house likes either of them so I get to have them all to myself.

Wearing
Dark blue denim jeans from H&M, a colorful blouse from bootlegger and earrings from a cute shop downtown.

Thinking
about how isolating depression can be

Listening
Amanda Cook's album "Brave New World"  on Spotify. It is so good, so powerful and so uplifting that I wish I could play it at full volume every.single.day. The music, the worship and the lyrics always carry me to beautiful places.
*sigh*

Picking
armloads of lilacs at all my favorite spots. Over the years I have found spots in my community where they hang over fences or grow in abandoned lots. I love the deep purple and white ones. Their fragrance is intoxicating.
