Spring Entertaining with Tuesday Morning!

 Tis the season for some back porch hangin'!
One of my very favorite spots in my home is our screened in porch, but after a long winter this space was looking a little drab and forgotten.  We teamed up with Tuesday Morning to give this area a much needed face lift and get it ready for some spring entertaining!

Strawberry Pickin'

One of my favorite spring activities each year is driving out in to the beautiful Alabama farm land and going strawberry picking!  We usually visit Witt's Farm, but after keeping the kids home from school and having the whole day planned we learned that they were closed so we tried out a new spot.  We went to Jerry Marsh Farms and we loved it just as much!  They are a working farm and had other crops besides strawberries that real farmers were tending! Jack watched in awe at the tractor and begged to climb on everything and stomp in every muddy puddle.  We went with a few of our friends and all of the kids had a blast!

Easter 2019

Easter week was a whirlwind over here! Between the kid's school Easter parties and activities and family stuff I blinked and it was Good Friday.  We spent the day in our pajamas and in typical holiday junkie style did allllll things Easter related.  If you haven't watched the Jesus story book bible on Amazon prime I highly recommend it.  There are lots of different stories, but we started the day with the Easter story and bunny pancakes!  We finally got around to dying eggs and I stepped up my game with glitter this year (a mistake I will surely not repeat next year).

Full Sun Photography Tips

Summer is right around the corner and that means beach trips, ball park days, picnics at the park and slip in slides in the back yard!  And I am PUMPED for all of it.  Don't let the fear of shooting in the dreaded full sunlight keep you from busting out the "big camera" to capture all of those memories.  I totally get it, full sun can be very tricky, but I have some tips and tricks I use that will hopefully make getting those shots you love easier.
