Mum Fest 2017

Hello! Today I wanted to share a few photos from the annual Barberton, OH Mum Festival at Lake Anna from this past weekend. I went with my mom, and we always look forward to this event every fall. I love being surrounded by flowers, and have such fond memories of Lake Anna from when I was a kid. The only thing bad was that the temperatures were above 90 degrees this weekend! Oh, it was a scorcher out there!!! Enjoy the photos!

Soft Focus

Hello!

Today I wanted to share a few photographs I took in the garden last weekend. I looove our Rose of Sharon bush (and I’ve shared photos of it before!). But, this time I challenged myself a little more and took some soft focus photos. Dreamy! If you don’t have a soft focus lens for your DSLR, I suggest you purchase one and just enjoy what it can do for your photographs!

Thanks for stopping by!

Secret Garden

Her heart was a secret garden, and the walls were very high. -William Goldman, The Princess Bride

When I took this photograph a few days ago, the first thought that came to mind was ‘secret garden’. I love when a photo takes you somewhere else and makes you think.

Think Happy

Isn’t this little decorative cup (from Target) the cutest thing ever? It’s served many purposes for me since I bought it last summer. I think for now it needs to hold these pretty flowers, and just be cute.  🙂

Also pictured is my Happy Planner Deluxe Cover. I brought it back out for now, because my custom HP cover isn’t quite as think as a regular HP cover, and I want to protect it. I love the white look for summer. Plus, it gives me more decorating options. I am anxiously awaiting my very first Planner Society kit this week. Eek!! You can bet some of those goodies will be popping up in my Happy Planner very shortly….IMG_8432IMG_8435heart_jen
