For my husband Andrew, who always goes above and beyond on every project I have ever asked him to help me with.

He inspires me to work harder everyday by his energy and enthusiasm and motivates me to work those extra minutes, even as the sun is going down.IMG_5041bwlogo

 

I know I am a little late posting this week, but I think it was definitely worth the wait! We welcomed some new Aussie fur babies into our household this weekend and we worked really hard to get them all set up here at the Wesley’s! 🙂

My best friend Ashley drove with me about 6 and a half hours to Missouri on Friday to pick up Bella and Spur. Luke and Lily got to tag along too, but I’m not so sure they enjoyed the trip as much as we did. All I can say is Thank The Lord for cheez-its and Netflix! HA! HA!

So here is where I have to brag on my amazing husband. He got up early Saturday morning and drove to town to pick up everything we needed to get started building their new dog pen.

When he got home he started cutting down trees and underbrush and I helped him clear it. We raked, removed rocks, and Lane helped us snip the smaller saplings. We then set up 4 posts and connected wire paneling to each of those. Then Andrew drove T-posts along the 16 foot panels to help secure them in the middle. This made a great 16X16 square living area!

We had a dog house that was built a couple of years ago for our oldest Aussie Ace, but he never liked to sleep in it much. So we stuck it in the pen for his new brother and sister. 🙂

It was a long, but definitely satisfying day!

Long story short…. I knew I needed a “faceless” portrait for week 7 and didn’t have any REAL inspiration until Saturday. I really wanted to use him for this assignment and managed to snap some photos of him on the porch. He didn’t even complain when I asked him to be my guinea pig!

I sure do love this man. I hope he knows how much!

 

 

Week 3 – Red

Featured

Hey guys I’m keeping it short and sweet this week. I do want to mention though that since I have been doing this photography challenge I have been finding so many new things that I have never noticed before. It makes you really study all of your surroundings and details seem to pop out at you! I’M LOVING IT!

Here are a few RED things I photographed this week! Hope you guys enjoy!

I was going through the town of Clinton and I seen this huge letter sign at an awesome little place called the Pottery Shop. They sell all kinds of things from yard ornaments to clothing.

I also noticed this huge cement mixer. The American flag really jumped out at me and I had never noticed it hanging there before! I was looking for RED and I think I definitely found one of the most symbolic and patriotic representations of that color.

I got to researching the color red for the American flag and it signifies hardiness & valour.IMG_0105

We planted a small garden this year behind our house. We used flower pots and planted tomatoes, peppers, and a few squash plants. My husband built a tall wooden bed for our cucumbers and strawberries. It feels like such an accomplishment to grow your own food, even if it is a small and humble garden! 🙂

We also have a small chicken farm here at the Wesley’s! HA! HA! Here is one of our favorite roosters whose name is coincidentally Ole’ Red. 😀

I caught him mid-crow!

Last but not least is one of my favorites… Luke… in his little RED wagon.
