the ever so awesome Angie from AGD… 
for her weekly Foto Find Friday talked about all those pics we have on our phones.
so i thought i would post some of the pics from my phone too.
thanks for the great idea!

this one of campbell was taken in May…
when i first discovered the Shake It Photo app.
i LOVE it… love the look it gives the photos… the feel.
it is meant to mimic polaroid camera shots…
click… shake… ta da… instant polaroid looking fun!

this one i clicked on our last night living in Colorado.
we were sitting on the back deck… really just trying to take it all in…
truly relax… enjoy our home for one last bit.

gretel soaking in the sun this summer in Bulverde TX…
i had my phone in hand… and just had to capture her “awe” moment.

this was on our LONG drive from TX to Wyoming over the summer.
i really like this picture… for several reasons…
but mostly because at that time it represented our path…
so much in front of us…
that there would be hills to climb…
but we were on our way to our new adventure.

these i clicked right before we took off on our way to Indianapolis.
the girls were SO excited…
after all we were on our way to grandma’s house!
campbell and i were wearing our matching sandals of course!

and THESE crack me up!
you never know what you’ll find in the photos on my phone!
the girlies love to take it and click pictures.
the fact that they dug the high chair tray out of storage just to play…
made me laugh…
my guess… they were playing house!  ya think!

given that all these were taken with a mobile phone’s camera…
i STILL think they do the trick!

so many times we are without our camera…
but NOW with our handy modern day phones… we don’t have to miss a moment!

LoViNg seeing little LEAVES on the trees... SO loving it !
the green is like a jolt of "FRESH" !


it awakens the senses...
like a tall glass of cool water when you are thirsty to the core!
awwwwwe !


you know as much as i love all the color that peeks out during Spring...
i think the canopy of green is what i look forward to most!
all those branches plump with growth... ready to play in their own shadow !


the sun is peeking out today too...
shining her light upon us & showing us the way !
i don't know about you but... i am so happy... grateful...
for her simple goodness right now !


wishing you a day full of bright light...
may it shine upon you too...
right where you need it most!
