friday favorite things | finding joy

So excited to be back and to be able to share all of the goodness around me :)  Join me as I embrace my favorites:

Playing around with my camera

Sharing the results of my play time with you in this post (though they are not edited since the laptop has just been release from recovery)

Discovering that it's the shutter speed that I need to adjust...oooooohhhhhh.

Verbena...I hope they last for me this year.  The color of these flowers is so vibrant!

Listening to the Beth Moore The Inheritance study with my friend Tonya

Really hearing what God had to say to me through the session

Having my laptop back in working order (thanks Ron!)

Being back to regular blogging now the the laptop is fixed...oh how I missed it

My new Tervis has a sunflower (it may have to be part of my next photo shoot)

Bendy straws

Hearing about Rondell and the kids' spontaneous bowling outing...Jamison got a spare

Snuggles from my kids after not seeing them all day.

Sitting on my front porch and enjoying the lovely weather

Sitting on the front porch, enjoying the weather and listening to Pandora radio on my phone

Steak on the grill

The excitement that I feel over the fact that my latest Stampin Up order is on its way

The fact that Rachel hosts this weekly...I truly enjoy sitting, absorbing the goodness & sharing it with you.

Glad your laptop is back in working order. I know what it's like to have one that needs to go under the screwdriver. ;) Loved your pictures of all those flowers! Wished ours were blooming and not all burnt to a crisp from lack of rain.

Rachel said...

You're so sweet. One of the reasons that I even started this was because of you and your encouraging! So for that -- thank you!

Love the hosta picture. And your list. And the fact that you included bendy straws. :)

Blessings sweet friend -- and congrats on the return of your laptop {do you have a name yet?}

You are doing a great job with your camera. I'm lovin' the photos. :o)

Fabulous list, as always. I too love bendy straws--drinks simply taste better with them. ;o)

Oh, and front porch sittin'? I miss that more than anything else now that I live here. We did that every evening spring through fall at my dad's house when I was growing up. We only moved inside when it go too cold.
