Fresh Start


Happy Hump Day folks! Thanks to those who reached out to check on the man child and I after the rainy weather from Hurricane Isaac. We are well. Today was a typical South Florida day. Humid. Sunny. Heat stroke hot. And I’m NOT complaining after being off for two days but stuck inside. KT and I made the best of it but my fridge is now empty and I don’t think he’ll play me in Scrabble again soon.

What better way to restart the school year than with some yellow. I thrifted these pants before the last school year and never got around to wearing them. I was standing on my duty post this morning reading Harper’s Bazaar Editor’s Letter and laughed when I read that some of the styles in included would be a mixture of trends into one cohesive look. I thought, “I did this on a budget!” and then gave myself a high 5. NO shame here J

In addition to feeling and being dressed all warm and fuzzy, I was eager to get home today and share a devotional from last Thursday titled A MEMO FROM HEAVEN. Here are a few lines that touched that place in me that’s still hurting but being to slowly heal:

“Don’t just pretend that you love others: really love them.
Hate what is wrong.
Stand on the side of good.
Be glad for all God is planning for you.
Be patient in trouble, and prayerful always.
If someone mistreats you..pray that God will bless him.
When others are happy, be happy with them.
If they are sad, share their sorrow.
Don’t try to act big.
Don’t try to get into the good graces of important people,
but enjoy the company of ordinary folks.
And don’t think you know it all!
Never pay back evil for evil.
Never avenge yourselves."

Simply put: conquer evil by doing good 
I’m working on this. #justbeinghonest

I used my tripod again. I did good capturing a full body shot but realized after I begin a quick edit that I was in too much sunlight. More practice to come. Any feedback is welcome so I can post better photos. You know the ones my son was taking. I just might have to pay this kid O.O!!

Looking good, as usual! As far as the sun goes, you need to have the sun behind the camera (I think, can't remember) or visa versa, try both ways to figure it out. Also, my son is about your son's age and takes all of my pics, except when he's not around. He does suck his teeth and complain sometimes but I don't care. Esp. on Sunday a.m. when I want to take pics before church and he doesn't want to get up for church let alone take my pics. My son has become interested in photography since taking my pics for blog. He looks up diff. things about photography to learn techniques and thinks he is the best :)! So maybe if your son did this he might enjoy taking your outfit pics and other pics (my son does pics for other stuff too). If not, cash is always a great incentive! Either way good luck and continue with tripod if all else fails. Sorry so long!
