One Week After the Texas Homeschool Coalition Convention…

THSC Photographer Gang

I was clueless as to what all last year would bring me in the hot July summer as I set out to the Texas Homeschool Coalition Convention last year. As their photographer, it has been an event that we have looked forward to as a family for nearly a decade now, and I have grown […]

Happy Arbor Day

Mulberry Picking via Sprittibee

Happy Arbor Day! I am a huge tree hugger. Started way back when I was a tiny tot, being taken on hikes through the Washington redwood forests with my grandparents… there’s magic in those dark mysterious forests where the trees reach the sky. I had a tree I used to literally hug in my back […]
