week19

It’s Monday! Time for our Home Sweet Home themed Eye Candy! I always love these kinds of themes because I feel we all truly get to know each other a bit better.

This time of year, I notice our group starts to wane down a bit and become a bit more intimate. As there aren’t as many submissions are there are in the group at the beginning of the year (understandably so), there also are less images to feature so you may notice our eye candy posts getting a bit smaller as well.

And a reminder:

If you are newer to the project or would like to jump in there is a wealth of great information on how this project works in our Facebook group especially under the “Files” area. You can find our group HERE. All are welcome.

19/52 – home sweet home

I was born and raised in Maryland, calling it home for over 35 years. But God called us to move a year and a half ago, to a small community in southwestern VA. Even though it’s been over a year, and it’s gorgeous and the people are friendly, I still don’t feel at home here. In fact I feel very displaced and my very sense of what “home” meant was now fuzzy. I have since come to realize that “home” means wherever they are. The 4 most important people in my life. God can call us to all the corners of the Earth and as long as I am with them, I am home.

Story:
19/52 {Home Sweet Home} When I got engaged, my mom planted rows of peonies in the yard of my house in Seattle as a congratulatory gesture. They are my favorite flower. I had bought that house all on my own at 26, we’d remodeled it down to the studs and brought our babies home to that house. It broke my heart to sell it four years ago and leave those beautiful flowers and my mom behind. My daughter, who looks like her, happened to pick out peonies for me for Mother’s Day this week. This is home to me.

my home sweet home you ask? the beautiful, the sunny, the super hot & humid, the late afternoon back yard hanging out, the perfectly acceptable to be in your brother’s undies splashing in the mud, spraying him with the hose- – - FLORIDA. I’ve moved, I’ve strayed, but I always come back to where my life began.

19/52 “Home Sweet Home” Urban exploration of a POW Camp yesterday.
In 1941, Camp 30 was the only camp in the world to house the Third Reich’s highest-ranking German officers captured by Allied forces “because Britain wanted to get them as far away from the war as possible”. In total 880 stayed there. It is the only surviving POW camp for Germans that is still intact.
Run like a five-star hotel with luxuries that included an indoor swimming pool, theatre and concert stage, the camp’s true purpose was given away only by the barbed wire around it.
After the war it was used a private training school, a Catholic secondary school, and finally as the Darul Uloom Islamic University which closed in 2008.

{HOME SWEET HOME} 2nd submission
Mother’s Day After the Meal

The light was amazing and rather than wait for the kitchen to be cleaned up, I took the picture. I left it dark and shadowy to make the mess less noticeable. Blaine (the husband) and Bethany (16-year old) had fixed dinner and the three grown kids (and their spouses and one grandchild) who are close enough to come to dinner were there. We had just finished eating. Tamara (the wife and old friend) wasn’t happy that I took this and said, “Couldn’t you wait until the kitchen is clean?” Then after a pause, “I guess it will never be clean?”

This is my current home. It is the fifth place El Jay and I have lived since May 2013. Not counting a week here and there in hotels and with family and friends. I appreciate all my friends are giving by letting my son and I live in their home, but it is not my HOME. I miss my things. I miss the privacy. I just want my own little house for El jay and me.

Today has been hard. I’ve cried a lot. I found out my dad had a small stroke about 10 days ago. I got another job rejection….

19/52 Home Sweet Home: Over the past two weeks I have gotten to see my three best friends (their birthdays are all in May) and their beautiful families. My drives to visit them were a 1/2 hour, 4 hours and 10 hours one way and at each of their homes I felt like I was home sweet home. To me home is where the heart is and each one of these precious families have a perment place in my heart. As I was blowing bubbles with this sweet boy today, who calls me his “Fairy Godmomma” (every time he says it he melts my heart!), I was right at home.

19/52 Home Sweet Home

This house started out on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of copy paper, with a mechanical pencil and a ruler that I used in 4th grade. We sat in my parent’s basement, broke, young, newlyweds and dreamed.
This man has touched every part of this home – he conceived it and built it with his own two hands.
And now 8 years later…
for my girls and I, he has created an amazing back drop for our lives. A beautiful place to grow.
We dreamed it and have made it happen. And then some.
He is my home sweet home and he has made it very sweet.

So this has been a rough couple of weeks for my little family. My husband was laid off. Actually around 1500 people have been laid off in the town we live in. But, this is his first truck. He’s a welder and with a truck and a machine, our family can make it. And home sweet home will be wherever we are together.

This isn’t so much a photo of our house, but of the flag that represents the beautiful country we live in. After we heard of all the recent disrespect and “flag protests” going around social media recently, we thought it was a perfect time to update our flag that flies outside our house year long.
Although America has its problems, I will always be proud to call it home. God Bless The USA.

As you create a home,
don’t get distracted
with a lot of things
that have no meaning
for you or your family.
Don’t dwell on your failures,
but think of your successes.
Have joy in your home.
Have joy in your children…
Be grateful for the journey.

19.52 {home} Howdy Y’all from Seattle.

We live in Seattle. I was not born here. I was born in Kentucky.
My whole family lives in Kentucky.
My friends.
Even my heart.

I have moved around a lot. I have lived in 9 states, but Kentucky was always considered my “home”. I lived in each state for about 2-3 years, then I would move. For school. For my work.

I was an adventurous spirit. I just went where my wings took me. To Knoxville. To Chicago. To Atlanta. To D.C. To Ft. Lauderdale. To Denver. To San Diego. To Seattle.

Then I got sick. Really sick. And, this man saved my life. He had wings, just like me. Angel wings. His angel wings were perfect for my adventurous wings. So, I married him.

I have been in Seattle going on 6 years.
This is my “home” now.
Where my new family is. My husband. My step-daughter. My step-son. And, my son.

My family always kids that my husband must be pretty special to keep me in the same spot for 6 years.
smile emoticon

One thing though that has never changed, I love my Kentucky home.
So, I still have a part of it here.

The howdy. The y’all. And, the boots that were made for walking and riding.
And missing those good ‘ole country folks back yonder.

18/52 Clean
My husband is an NYPD officer and for the 3rd time in 6 months, he has to put on his dress uniform, with {clean} white gloves, and attend a funeral of a fallen officer who was assassinated just for wearing blue. I know for him it’s heartbreaking because he, essentially, will be attending his own funeral. For me, I’m torn to pieces because I fear for his safety everytime he steps out the door and heads to work. Any LEO wife knows what I’m talking about. It’s not easy. I’m proud of all the law enforcement officers who are brave enough to do what they do to protect us.

18/52 Clean

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”

My goal for this week was to nail my shot in camera to allow for a beautiful CLEAN edit. Shot nailed! Nearly the whole session nailed! No changes other than sharpness, crop etc. Not a hugely creative photo but one I am definitely proud of and my post processing for the whole session was super quick as a result, wooohooo.
