A Day in the Vineyards

A few weeks back we took my Dad out for a wine tasting at one of the local vineyards. 

some of us weren't drinking... 

but it looked pretty :)  

I don't know if it's just Italian Rivera inspiration, but vineyards are always in the most beautiful country spots.  

My family is the coolest. 


Sooo cute.  
the boys... with Abby's purse. 
Miss Beautiful, herself.  

lol, Abbey took this one...by surprise  

Can somebody PA-LEEZ-E get married here and hire me to shoot their wedding?

Okay, I caved. I'm waiting for the final details on my website to be finished so here is one more post! :) 
I received this in the mail yesterday and was delighted to by the glossy pages of pure beauty. To all of my fellow competitors, I put this down not only having joy at seeing each of your photos, but also inspired to go and improve my photography with new ideas. Well done! I was blown away by the prize winners' photos, all the honorable mentions and so many of the finalists.  

The cover photo is from the first prize winner, Desiree M. Keelty from Austin Community College.
absolutely fabulous.  
 Buuuuut, if you care to turn to page 96.... You will see why I am honored to be included in your ranks. :) 

Well, look at that! :) 

If you look closely, you'll see my name. hehe.  
I am so blessed to have been able to take part in this competition and am looking forward to entering again next year! See what other surprises God has for me.
