About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Happy 4th of July

We spent the evening at Eagle Mountain Lake at a birthday party for one of Aleck’s friends from school.  The kids had an awesome time on the water slide.



Sparklers were a huge hit.



The sun was setting so this picture is dim, but I still love it.


The neighbors must spend thousands on fireworks, because the display was spectacular.




I remembered my tripod.  I didn’t know how to custom set the white balance for fireworks, so the colors in the photos don’t really show how spectacular the display was, but I had fun playing with my shutter speed to get different shots.

Happy 4th!
