my 365 a journal day 255 http://carolynv.com/blog/2014/9/my-365-a-journal-day-255 One day long ago God told me to combine my love for photography with my love for card making.

Here is a set of beautiful black and white notecards that I would love for you to own. I have three sets.

They are perfect for a special little note.

Handwriting cards seems to be something of the past but is a very special thing to get in your mail.

my 365 a journal day 254 http://carolynv.com/blog/2014/9/my-365-a-journal-day-254 Sweet little Anna turned one! I've had the pleasure of photographing this family several times now and always love the time with them as well as looking at the pictures as I edit and put them together for Lauren & Justin.  Anna is a beautiful little girl and I look forward to more times of capturing the life of this family and they grow together.

Kind of an impossible thing but we did get to a place where the crowds weren't quite as large as some other places. These are just a few of my favorite photos from our weekend get away.

This was quite an incredible spot. At about 10,000 feet the views were amazing! The stack of rocks in the background looked like it could topple over. Check back for more photos of this great trip into the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

My 365 a journal day 161 http://carolynv.com/blog/2014/6/my-365-a-journal-day-161 Yesterday was one of those days where I had some time to kill, so I stayed in town and did some wandering. My final destination was Montana de Oro. I love the trees.

Montana de Oro, California Beach, California, Los Osos California, San Luis Obispo County,

I decided to take a walk to see if I could get a shot from above the beach this time. It was a short hike but I knew I'd just go out far enough to get the shots I was looking for and then head back. It was looking to be a very pretty trail.

The view of the coast was beautiful. I got as close as I could ... I possibly could have gone closer but the warning sign was holding me back. :)

On my way out my focus was getting to the coastline. But on my way back I was focusing more on the details of what was on the path.

There were so many other pretty things to see ...

And then ... I was so glad that I was focusing on the path ... I never expected to see a rattlesnake!

I took a couple of quick shots {with my camera of course!}. Waited a bit until I got up the courage to quickly walk past the area it crossed my path ... and then I was safe on the road again.

My backyard is becoming a garden.

My kind of garden.

Paths take me through so I can go barefoot to water the rugged plants that are there.

The hot sun on the stones scorch my feet until I spray the water on them and the stones beneath.

Color is beginning to be spread throughout the yard with the gernaniums, sunflowers, lavendar, carnations and more.

It's not plush and green like yours might be but it is a garden none the less.
