Texas Summer Sunset


Sitting in my neighbor’s front yard waiting for the arrival of the dark, the sun boasts it’s last orange rays. Clashing with the approaching indigo, splashes of pinks and purples spread through the sky. Perhaps the sunset looks the same in the middle of winter, perhaps not. Still it seems that sunsets like these scream, “long live summer.”

Sparklers After Dark


Independence Day sparklers paired with the free spirit of a 7 year old in summer, I can nearly smell the warm, night air through the photograph. Like a slightly fuzzy childhood memory, the long-open-shutter softens the edges, freezing this moment in time with a sweet sense of summer youth.

Forgotten but not..

I may have forgotten about the pictures on my camera but the memories linger. And when they fade the photos will hold them for us. These two stood out above the rest, my favorites. My sweet shots.

Sweet Shot Tuesday is hosted by My 3 Boybarians.

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
