Memories, Dreams, and Reflections 2013

For those who don't know, half of my year was spent in Africa and more than half of this post is filled with Africa. Because of that trip, most of these photos are not very "professional." One of my goals this year is to explore my camera more and try to branch out on the photography more. However, seeing as I only used my good camera took time to edit photos before I went to Africa...the quality might not be as good as yours. But the memories are priceless.

Happy New Year!

1. Me
This is me in my most favorite place on earth. This is where my heart is.

2. I Love You
This too. That kid on my shoulders is my most favorite.

3. Still Laughing...
The day we went down the road to the abandoned food stand and pretended to own it. I love my sisters.

4. Winter Wonderland
We don't have much of a "wonderland" winter in my area of Kentucky, but what we do get almost every year is a huge ice storm. 

5. Birthday
Little sis entered the teen years this year. Oh, no!

6. Friends
besties forever.

7. I Was Inspired...
She'll never believe me, but this girl inspired me so much over the summer by her unconditional love to this little deaf and mute child. 

8. Spring Fever see that green again.

9. Travel or Vacation
A vacation amidst our stay in Tanzania! Seeing all the wildlife was so cool. 

10. Summer Days
On the shores of Lake Victoria. 

11. A Day In My Life

Half of my year was filled with lovely black kids and cooking and such. Now it's filled with a lovely white kid and taking care of her.

12. All Smiles
Oh, to see this sight again...I'd do anything for it. I miss it so much.

13. Autumn Harvest
We missed most of Autumn due to being across the world, but here's some of the Thanksgiving table decor. 

14. Family or Home
In Africa, and then America.

15. Celebrate!
Easter bonfire!

16. Le's Do It Again
Let's go!

17. I Miss You
no captions needed.

18. Beautiful
The Serengeti plains were gorgeous!

19. Dress Up
A dress I made for Easter. I love to sew, but I'm not doing anything this hard again until a wedding dress someday.

20. Macro
Spring flowers.

21. Holidays
I loved this scene from the Christmas play.

22. My Favorite
My favorite ever!

23. Don't Ever Change
I love my siblings (not all are pictured). I don't want them to change.

24. Just Because...So There!

Just randomness 

25. Hopes and Dreams [for 2014]
Explore. Dream. Discover.
