My photo
What makes me smile? My family, my dog Daisy, fishing, 80's music, Packers football, a good cup of coffee...just to name a few!

Reflection Challenge

I thought I would end up blogging a lot more, but here I am scrambling at the last minute to enter my photo for the "Reflection" challenge...this photo was taken at the Back to the 50's car show at the MN State Fair grounds this past June. We go every year with my Dad and love to spend time with him and look all the old cars!

I hope to take more time soon, to blog about other things!! :)

I'm always snapping pictures when we are out on the lake. This photo was taken on my first trip with my boyfriend (who is now my husband) up to his Grandparents home in Merrifield, MN (near Brainerd). That was my first real day of fishing and I've literally been hooked ever since! It was the perfect day to catch some bass, as you can see in this photo. I thought water falling into water would work for this ISO challenge!

Dream catcher

Dream is the theme for this weeks ISO photo challenge....

I took this photo at the beach the other day and it reminded me of a dream catcher (also has a little flare...I couldn't resist)!

I won my first ISO photo challenge!

How fun to win my first ISO Photo Challenge with a photo that I love so much! This photo means a lot to me because it captures...

An amazing sunrise that reminds me that God's mercies are new every morning. 

A quiet, peaceful lake that helps me get away from the daily grind and be thankful for all of my blessings.

A fishing pole which symbolizes the wonderful time I get to spend with my husband - a time to have fun together and really talk, without all the other distractions in life.

Thanks again, Michelle for choosing my photo! Keep up the great work with ISO!

Dog Days

I took this photo while enjoying an early summer evening on the front steps with my dog, Daisy. It's fun to just sit and watch her; not a care in the world. Helps me to unwind and relax after a day at work.
I wasn't sure if a dogs paws count for the "Feet" photo challenge, but this photo op was just too good to pass up. So here goes...

This weeks photo challenge: Flare

I am obsessed with taking photos of sunrises and sunsets
when we are out on the lake fishing!

It is amazing to me that I take these photos all the time
 and they all still come out with their own look.

So far this is one of my favorites!
