This is how I ended my evening last night.
Look at that sky.
I think sunset is my favorite time of day.
And I  love when I get to see the sun set in a wide open field like this.
It could not be any more beautiful.
If I got to end every day (or just a lot of days) like this I would be so happy...and peace.
How could you not be?
I need sunlight... Need sunlight.
I just don't think I could ever live somewhere that rained a good majority
of the time and you didn't see the sun much, the lack of sun
really affects my mood...maybe more than it should,  but it really does.

For my photography-loving friends out there, many of these pictures
I did absolutely nothing to,  just uploaded them to my computer.
This is what the light really looked like last night! Can you stand it?
On a few I barely adjusted the exposure or saturation but on most of them I didn't.
My mom really wants a picture of her seven grand kids out here in this spot at sunset so
I hope to get that done before her birthday in October and have it printed for her.

My baby with her this one above.
This is at my uncle's house, which is my grandma & grandpa's house, 
was my grandma & grandpa's house. The house where my mom and all of her siblings grew up, 
the house where we have celebrated every single Christmas Eve since I was born, 
where we still celebrate Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving every year.
So full of memories and love and glimpses of the past. 
Seriously one of my most favorite places on earth. And yep, I did just say on earth. 
A big, old house in a (super) small town in Central Illinois.

I'm trying to pick a favorite.
 I have been telling myself for months and months that I need to start printing
 and framing photographs instead of having them sit on my computer.
I will do this, I will do this. I will do this. Which is your favorite?


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
We survived our first week of school and are still trying to get back into
 the swing of things around here.
Happy Saturday, y'all!
