This was our first memorial BBQ with our friends. We had a lovely time, filled with lots of dancing, smore's, burgers and prayer towards all our veterans.
Here are some pictures of our wonderful time in fellowship together.
p.s SOME photos were not taken by me, Marcus was handed from person to person. ;)
I loved my life in GA.
I look at it fondly. Sometimes I get sad thinking about the great times there, or my old house, or the land I grew up on.
When my parents proposed the idea of moving to WA, all of my siblings (and I) leaped.
We were ecstatic, and started packing almost immediately.
I had been feeling for a while, that my life in GA was coming to a close.
That there was something new on the horizon.
I had no idea it would be moving to WA.
I have lived here for over a year now.
Sure, it was hard at first. A transition. Some days of missing home terribly.
But I never once wanted to move back.
I can honestly say, I have never been happier than I am here.
If I did not want to move to WA, I wouldn't have. Neither would my siblings.
I was eighteen, and my siblings were old enough to make the choice themselves.
I chose Washington state.
I knew my life awaited me here.
I look at this beautiful state with a full heart. So much hope and happiness fills me now more then ever.
I have no idea where I would be if I hadn't moved.
I love Washington, more and more everyday. I am so thankful that I can call this place home, and the people here my friends.
I have made my choice.
This is my home. This is where I am happy.
Though I am currently "lens-less", one of my friends lent me one of his FF lenses.
I used the 85mm 1.4, which was very pleasant.
Here are some shots I got the other night.
Though I was planning for my new camera to be a girl, and carry the name "Daphne" (I've been watching a lot of Scooby Doo..) It just didn't fit and I found myself calling him Marcus (very original).
So Marcus it is. ;)
