The Outdoors At My Friend's House

Today I took 3 of my kids to my friend's house today. She lives out in the country and has some beautiful outdoor scenery in her backyard. I, of course, grabbed my camera before leaving our house so I could take pictures. If you have been reading, I am still a beginner photographer (click here) so any chance I get to practice I jump on in a heartbeat.



It was wonderful to catch up with my friend. We had just seen each other in August, sometimes a month or even a few weeks seems like forever. The reason why is was so great to see my friend is because my family and I will be moving soon (read my last blog post here to find out about our moving adventure). I also went to visit another friend yesterday so the past two days of seeing friends that I won't get to see as much once we move was really great. I'm so thankful for my friends. I will miss them for sure.

This is an old picture of the friend I went to visit today.

This is also an old picture of the friend I went to visit yesterday.
Back to the pictures I took today. I love where my friend lives. It is so peaceful and quiet. Just look at how peaceful these pictures look.







I seriously could have stayed and taken a lot of pictures, but did not want to over stay my welcome at my friend's house. Plus I had 3 of my 5 kids with me and they wanted to go home and eat lunch and take a nap.

My only kiddo that let me get a picture of her at my friend's house.
When I look all the beauty that nature has to offer, I can't help but think what a wonderful creator our God is. He created everything so majesticly and delicately. What a wonderful God we serve and I am so amazed at how He blesses me. Really makes me keep my faith, hope, and love!

  3. Sometimes it's difficult to find time with friends. Since we've moved here, my husband has seen his friend less than he did when we lived 150 miles away. We have three more kids than we did, then, but people just get busy. I'm so glad you got to see your friend.

  4. Great job on capturing the beauty of nature today while visiting your friend. Moving is difficult on everyone, hopefully through your blog and writing you can still stay connected.

  12. You have a good eye. That's important and something you can't teach in a photography class. Keep practicing, you'll only get better.

  14. Those are some beautiful pictures you took out there today. You do have an eye for some pretty great visuals. I am curious as to how they would look in larger photographs.

  15. Your friend does live indeed in a beautiful place. I love how her house is surrounded by nature. I can imagine it's quite peaceful there too.

  16. I like your pictures. It does seem peaceful there! It's always nice to read about friendships people value. I have a "sister friend," as we call each other, as our friendship nearly spans a life time (and we're both 60 now!) We grew up together, and she even lived with my family for her final year in high school. We live in neighboring states now, and rarely get to see each other, but we still stay in touch and when we do get together, it's like all the years and miles apart melt away.

  17. Wow that scenery looks like you travel to an exotic location. How lucky is your friend to experience this all the time? Friendships are special so continue to cherish them even when the physical distance between grows.

  24. I have lived in the city all my life and I long for that day when I can fully retire and move to the suburbs, or out in the country where life is more relaxed. Being so close to nature is happiness to the truest sense of the word.

    What a beautiful place to raise a family! If I could move there, I would! It does get pretty stressful to live in the urban jungle from the day you were born!
