life without justine #10

There is no one to tell me if my outfit looks good, if my hair is fine, which shoes to wear, or tie my scarf for me.

life without justine #9

So many things are happening to her that I am not a part of and I too am experiencing things she can't share with me.

  It was bittersweet. The four of us together. Only for a short time, though. A few hours. It was our last time together until September. None of us were willing to talk about it.

Justine hugged us all at least three times before we left.

In two short weeks, Kerra will be out of the country for the summer.

Caitlin will be here working, as will I, but I won't be able to see her as often as I am accustomed to doing.

And Justine, of course, will be be at The Ranch. I will be able to visit on Saturdays and Caitlin will occasionally come along. But it will never be The Four.

It was fun to go and see how much fun Justine was having. It makes me excited to think about visiting her this summer. It is still odd for me to think about Justine experiencing so many things that I am not a part of.

Because it was the last time we were all together we had to take some photos.

No is there to remind me to be nice to people and not interrupt.

taking photos once again

Last weekend we had a friend over, and because of the nature of the visit we spent most of the evening outside. I had been suffering from allergies all week and really shouldn't have been outside at all. But since I had gone out earlier in the day and our guest was outside, I decided to throw caution to the wind and go out. I had been itching to take my camera out all week, but had been too sick to do so. I was finally able to take pictures again. The sun was just setting so I was able to get the first four shots with the delicious light that comes with a sunset. The last four photos were taken in the backyard with hardly any light left in the sky at all, but I was so happy to be taking photographs that I hardly noticed. With the exceptions of #2, 3, 7, all of these are freelensed.

tie clips

Well, since it has almost been a month since I last blogged, I suppose I should write something.

After spending a week on the beach in Florida, coming back to Oklahoma wasn't easy. In fact, my body rebelled. I think the combination of eating camp food and barely sleeping caused my immune system to be sad. I came home exhausted and promptly got sick. At first we thought it allergies, but now I believe it probably was a virus.

Anyways, for the first half of the week I pushed through it and worked, but by the second half of the week, when I didn't have to work, I gave in and spend my days on the couch.

This past week seems to have taken forever. Getting well is boring. I have become quite tired of just sitting. But, I must say
my pinterest flourished.

I have discovered that not only do I have a deep love for ties, but also for tie clips.

I kind of got wild with the tie clip photos. Sorry guys.  I will stop now.
