Rain Droplets.

The Art of Rain

By: Mitchell D. Wilson
Falling Down, pooling up,
Out of the sky, into my cup.

What is this wet that comes from above,
That some call disaster, and others find love.

The harder it falls, the less it is nice,
The colder it falls the harder the ice.

The rain has an art that I may not get,
So I stand still here and get soaking wet.

Special thanks to my sweetheart – he pulled the car over so I could capture this beauty <3.

1st Home Game.

My darling sister-in-law scored us baseball tickets to the first home game last week. Pretty sure we made ourselves sick on ballpark food – unquestionably worth it <3.

The Mr. & I enjoying America’s favorite pastime.

Yes, I like to sit safely behind the net – Thank you!

… Little A & Auntie A (:

Enjoy your weekend <3.

The Birdnest.

 Finding something special in your very own backyard is such a treat.

I kept my eye on our little birdnest through the seasons. You can only imagine my excitement when we got our first snow!

Unfortunately, it wasn’t nestled firmly enough in the tree, and is no longer with us. I’m so happy I took these simple pictures to capture our little backyard treasure.

Hopefully, this work week goes by quickly so we can go camping … I need to rejuvenate.

I uncovered a beautiful rose-bush by our home, and went rose picture taking crazy! I took the below picture to test the light, and ended up falling in love with it the most <3.

It’s in honor of our city starting a new recycling program – truly hoping civilians will partake (;

Go Green!

City Sunsets.

April’s showers bring … moment stopping sunsets.

Sorry for the blocking power lines and trees, we live in the city – still beautiful in my eyes <3.

… capturing happiness – not perfection <3.

Business Travel.

Next time I visit charming Parachute, CO – I need to travel up a day early for some nature photography walks. It was picturesque, but since I was on the company’s dime, I was there to learn … not play photographer.

I was able to get 2 quick photos; honestly they don’t even begin to do the scenery any justice.

Flower Power.

 Currently, my life is in warp speed. I just got back from a business trip, and my lack of sleep is causing zombie-like traits ): I never sleep when traveling, this week I passed out on all 4 flights. Hopefully, after this jammed packed weekend I can get a little relaxation?

 The flower pictures below completely settle my anxiety … and are so in honor of my dad. I gave him such a hard time for taking plant/nature pictures when I was younger. “You never take people pictures dad” was always blurting out of my mouth.

 Fast forward 10 years and NOW I see the beauty.

Little A.

Of course, I took pictures of the most beautiful princess I know while camping (niece)

She was a pure joy the entire weekend … such a sweetheart <3.


Photo Idea Credit: My dad – he wanted her to do this for him, but she did it for Auntie A (;


This was after a water gun fight with Uncle Ubbs (:


Keep smiling,

PS. Tara and John – your daughter is beautiful <3.
