Nothing says "October" like a church bazaar!

A Friday night street dance, Saturday vendors, cake walk, washer tournament, train, and more!

...and the next morning, vendors and cake walks...

(Preparing the German dinner. I couldn't go, but I still wish I could have tried that sauerkraut with spiced apples on top.) 

The washer tournament champions!

Surprise! in, these beautiful Surprise Lilies that decorated my mother's front yard this past weekend. 

Hope your week is full of sweet surprises!

Tequila Sunrises (and Sunsets)

I just spent four sunshine-filled days on the coast with twenty women and my camera...

...with some dancing and ping-pong thrown in. 

That's pretty dang close to heaven for me.

I tried my best to get up in time to capture the sunrises, 

which is always in direct conflict with my desire to catch up on rest - and go dancing!

But the sunrises just called me every morning. 

No alarm clocks are necessary when you don't want to waste a single moment of a weekend you wait for all year. 

(The sunsets were captured purely by accident and more glorious because of it.)

"What more pleasant sensation than sunshine on skin, 
Spirit and flesh drinking in the light 
Of God and energy itself." 

~ Terri Guillemets
