Cross Country Skiing

I got to go Cross Country Skiing for the first time the other day. I'd say it was a success;
I only fell one and a half times. Half a time didn't count: I only went down to my knees.
It was in Minneapolis, with my wonderful future family, on a beautiful day!

The Year in Pictures: 2013

January: Two of my best friends, Abbi and Cami, at Staff Reunion.

 February: 1920's Night at Swing Dancing

 March: A tour of the James J. Hill house in Minneapolis with my mom and dad.
He had a pipe organ built in his house. Now, I don't play the organ, nor do I 
aspire to, but that's still pretty neat.

 April: My dearest friend/twin, Mary, whom I have known for almost 4 years!

 May: Experiencing flooding at camp was a challenge, but God protected and provided, once again.

 June: My little dog, Gypsy, (who isn't so little anymore) is such a joy!

 July: Sr. High Pie Auction, being pied by my cousin and future sis-in-law.
We're such a loving family.

 August: A trip out to Rollag, MN, for the Western MN Steam Thresher's Reunion. Always a fun time.

September: I had the pleasurable job of taking the Sr. pictures of both Mary and Karl,
and I couldn't choose between the two. 

October: Brent's and my engagement pictures! What an exciting time! 

October (2): I had to include a picture of my family. It's new having a fifth person, but he fits well.

 November: Enjoying the fall days at camp.

 December: Celebrating Christmas with the Petry family. My younger cousin made bracelets
for everyone, so here is most of my family, showing them off.

2013 was a wonderful year, full of memories, lessons, and God's blessings!

Family Photos

Just how hard is it to take a family photo? Seems like an easy task...


See, we made it...eventually.

Photoshoot: Rebekah

Running out of current photos, so I'm digging out some fun (and warm) summer pictures!
I got to spend the afternoon in downtown Fargo with my dear, beautiful friend, Rebekah.
Ah. Good times.

Golden Fields

The sun sets so early this time of year, so it's easy to grab some beautiful scenery at 4:00 in the afternoon. I just love how the grass and trees light up with gold as the sun goes down. I only wish I could better capture how beautiful the Lord's creation is.

Photoshoot: Mary

My dear friend Mary is graduating this year, and I had the pleasure of taking pictures of her!
It was doubly fun, as she doesn't normally let me take her picture, and I much enjoyed the time with her!

 Having some fun!
