Good Ol' St. Augustine

Yesterday was finally a beautiful day so I wanted to do ANYTHING to get out of the house and be outside. Although St. Augustine is only an hour or so away, it always seems longer. We made the trip yesterday for a fun family day...we needed it. I always forget how much I just love it. So old and full of history and beauty. Here are just a few fun shots from yesterday. Our friends Dan, Shannon and baby Presley came along too. It had been a long time since we all spent the afternoon together and we had one great day.

One of my favs

One day my good friend Lisa needed me to help her out by keeping her son, Balin. Since Charlie calls Balin her boyfriend, I knew it would be a fun day. And it was- they played like rockstars all day long. And I, of course, took some pictures of Balin also. This is one of my favs from the day and for some reason one of my all time favs I taken so far. It just really captures Balin- a tough but very sweet little man who loves bikes & trucks, getting dirty and his teddy bear. This pictures was taken a few months ago but I was revisiting some older pictures and really wanted to share this one again.

Forgot one...

This is the first "ring" shot I've done. I should have used my marco lens but I think it still turned out pretty good. Whatcha think?

Camera+too much time= THIS...

Today Carlos was at work most of the day and Charlie was visiting my mom & dad in Orlando. Usually when Charlie is gone, we have a whole agenda of fun events going on. Not so much this weekend. Still recovering from food poisoning (or something!??), we decided to take it easy this weekend. I was feeling like taking pictures today and after making a few phones calls and everyone was working or busy, I decided to be my own model. And it gives me some time to try new editing techniques, lighting, etc.
I bit silly, I know. But it kept me busy and I'm pretty happy about a few of them...I just wish it were someone else in the photos- not me!

Not so blue...

But my walls now are! We moved into our newly built home just over a year ago and it's taken me this long to add my own touch to it. Those of you who know me well, know I love color on the walls. My friends Christy just said to me last weekend that she can't believe that it's taken me so long to paint. My previous homes have had a different color in just about every room. Anyways, I finally decided on a look and went with it. So...without further ado.... I debut my new living room. (for some reason the last picture is the "before")
Now that my creativity is flowing, be on the lookout for more and more home renovations by Jenny!

It's a little crooked, I know
I'm laying out pictures on the floor to go on the blue wall. I am still working on that...
Can you see Charlie on the pool deck playing with Jackson??
