Snapshots .

I rejoice in small victories. And this post right here? It's one of those victories. A completed photo project. A short one, but a completed one nonetheless. Today, I joined Rebekah Gough's monthly photography get-together, Ten on Ten. (I've wanted to do this for over a year!) I appreciate Rebekah's voice through her blog. She loves Jesus. She loves her family. She loves photography. She's my kind of gal. So, for today, I'm keeping words to a minimum and showing you ten photographs, little snapshots of my life, instead. Here's to a new week!

//1// While I was out for coffee/Target run with a pal, my husband texted me and told me to buy a sheet set that I had long wanted. I love him! //2// 'Mommy, I sneezed on your flowers and blessed them', he said. Heart melted. //3// Every time I pass a certain stretch, this beautiful red-tailed hawk is there. Today, I was elated to have my camera with me as I passed. //4// I Corinthians + this message. So good. //5// Tired little Jobie and his blanket. //6// Those curls! //7// Weekend reading material. //8// Collecting sticks and stones. Love their boots. //9// A fresh roast with incredible smell. I love my husband's new hobby! //10// Spring is on the way here in Oregon!

    1. Oh girl. I love those sheets (and that sweet guy of mine!). The brand is Threshhold and they are amazingly made. And, I know, those curls get me every time!

  2. The perspective on each of these shots is wonderful. I love the curls. I miss the curls myself. Oh and that picture of coffee beans- scrumptious!

    Glad I came over here from a bit of sunshine.

    1. Alita,
      I'm telling you-- this new hobby of my husband's, roasting coffee-- it is amazing! I am not a coffee drinker myself, but the smell of freshly roasted coffee beans is so wonderful that it might just make me a drinker yet : )

    Gorgeous perspective on all of your shots.
    The sheets are really pretty.
    And so cool he was there, waiting for you and your camera, haha!

    1. Angel,
      Thank you so much for your kind words! Yes, I was beyond happy about that hawk being there in his usual haunt. He (or she?!) is beautiful.

    1. Christina,
      You are sweet! I have always wanted to join in on Rebekah's TenonTen. I mean, like, for over a year now. But with my posting schedule on Mondays and Thursdays, it just always seemed to creep up and I didn't have time to fit it in. Somehow I managed to read about it right on time this month and was able to get all of the pictures taken. Such a small task, I know, but it was more difficult than I thought. Long story short, I was thrilled to accomplish it!

  5. So much sweetness in these shots. 'Mommy, I sneezed on your flowers and blessed them' is just about the cutest thing I've ever heard. :)

    1. Oh my. Don't I know it. He's sitting across from me right now as I type and he just told me, 'mama, I can't get my pajammies zipped up'. I really need to be writing all of these things down. (Thank goodness for this blog/journal!)

  7. Gorgeous photos! I'm so glad I found your blog through Rebekah's! And I definitely agree--I love Rebekah and her honesty, love for Jesus, and love for photography! Both of you ladies are such great photographers! :)

    p.s. I've seen so many people read/write about One Thousand Gifts. If you don't mind me asking, how do you like it so far?

    1. Kiki,
      Thank you so much for your kind words about my photos and for visiting here! Okay, so, Voskamp's book. I'm so glad you asked : ) I should say, I've heard quite the gamut about this book too-- good and bad. But, personally, (and I'm only on chapter three, so keep that in mind) I find Voskamp very gifted with words and theologically dead on. I am of the persuasion that many who accuse her of being a mystic or theologically ungrounded, misunderstand her poetical style, her "proetry" as she calls it. I am very much enjoying the book but will definitely post my final conclusions here on the blog after finishing the book. Hope that helps!

  8. Sometimes I try to articulate what it is that I love best about your site, and then you post a post like this one, and I think THAT. Sarah, this is so lovely. It's a breath of fresh air in a busy Internet world, and it's a powerful way of celebrating the everyday beauty in our everyday days. I love that you're doing this 10 on 10 project and loved this post.

    1. ...and sometimes after a post like this one, I take a deep breath with a thousand words to say, yet none seem to make it through to the screen quite effectively. And I'm thankful when someone like you (Shanna) say exactly what I am thinking. :)
