Valentine's day is pretty much centered around love. Valentines were handed out, chocolate was eaten, and cupcakes were made. The world's version of love is shown with hearts, the colors red and pink, chocolate, cards, and cupcakes, among other things. While I certainly do love all those things, Christ's love is different.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.  1 Corinthians 13:4-8a
Did you show Christ's love this Valentine's day?  Will you strive and pray to show his love to others in the future?

Note:  I'm not saying celebrating Valentines day is wrong. I just wanted to show you what the Bible says about love.

Yesterday morning I decided to have an apple for a snack. When I reached into the bag of apples I knew I had another idea for a photo shoot. :) After school I pulled out a piece of white card stock and an apple. I grabbed my mom's camera and began shooting.

I had a little(or rather big) problem. Tucker really wanted the apple. :)

I decided that since I didn't really like the background and since Tucker kept getting in the way that I would choose a new background.

I found a basket and put some more apples in it. :)

Still begging?

have a favorite?

❀ what a day

today was a very busy day. it started at 10:23, when i woke up. i got up, did my laundry, cleaned up my room, got a shower, and grabbed a snack. then i practiced piano.

after i practiced piano we went to my cousin's basketball game. we got home around four and i caught up on reading a few blogs and snapped a few photos. :)

i pulled on my new gloves that are made for using with cameras, phones, ext. then i pulled on my green, fuzzy, snowflake socks and boots. i pulled my coat on then grabbed my mom's camera and headed outside. i captured a few shots before heading back inside. it is so cold! [in case you were wondering, i woke up yesterday to find the world covered in white.]

i decided to do a piano/valentines day photoshoot. most of them turned out like the one above. i did get some good ones though!

i was really happy with how this one turned out. i will have to try it again sometime soon. it got dark before i could finish. here is a picture of my setup:

i finished the night off my redoing my blog design. thoughts?

how was your saturday?

oh, man

well y'all know that i haven't posted in like two months. unless you count that really lame post where i said i would be back and obviously i wasn't... well anyways i guess i will fill you in on what i've been doing.

the play- right now i am in a play about the holocaust(did you know that the mac dictionary lets you search wikipedia? just though you might want to know...).  it is really sad but i am glad to be part of it.

the photographs- well, to tell the truth there aren't any. i have been taking a break from photography but plan to get the camera out tomorrow. but who know if that will actually happen.

the graphic design- actually, i closed my graphic design business. i just got too busy and frankly got in a creativity rut. :p would anyone like to make me a free blog background(email me)? i love the one that i have now, it's just so wintery and when i look outside i see spring not winter.

anyways, i hope to be back with another picture filled post soon. :)
