Church was so good this morning. I rode home in silence as so many things ran through my head. There was one thing that still is running over and over even now hours later and it is this. Maybe your struggle or hardship isn’t for you. Maybe the lesson that needs to be learned by your obstacle isn’t your’s. Did you know that God can use your situation to teach or help someone else? When we share our testimony of overcoming we can change someone’s life. Maybe the difficulty that you overcame was given to you to give someone else hope. To give someone else the courage to carry on. This was a revelation to me you guys. I stood there with tears in my eyes and an awakening stirring in my heart. We’ve gone through some truly hard, trying times and I’ve been on my knees asking God what I’d done wrong. What lesson was I not learning, what sin had I committed to deserve whatever I was going through. Even though I know better than that it feels like a weight being lifted to know that maybe I had it wrong. To know that by overcoming, which we always have, I can share my testimony and fulfill that hardships purpose. I know I’m rambling but it’s been on my heart all day to share. Never give up. I guess that’s really what I’m trying to say. 53/365 #myeveryday #m4hp365 #faith #sunflowers

I’m excited to kick off another week for our “Pastel” Eye Candy. I am (as always) loving the beautiful images and great stories shared both in our group and our flickr Pool! I can’t wait to jump right in! All the images have truly been amazing this week!

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.

Let’s get started!

Project 52: 7/52 – Pastel

When I was younger, I never dreamed I would have such a beautiful daughter. She reminds me so much of myself. She can be intense/serious but when she smiles, it’s worth it. Her eyes can look straight into your soul. I love that about her, and I love that she’s all mine.

I am going to edit the info on this photo. The gown didn’t belong to my father, but his grandmother. She made this for her first born. This would put the age of this Christening gown to be around 100yrs. I found it in one of the boxes my parents gave me after they cleaned out my grandfather’s house.

We have over a foot of snow here in Kentucky right now, and the temperature is colder than ever. There are icicles lining the roof of my home! Although winter is in full swing, I love the soft pastel colors and sparkly bokeh in this image. The icicles were beautiful as they sparkled in the evening sunshine.

This week we got our first real snow! My close friend and I have had this snow princess session in mind all winter so out we went with her daughter and her playdate. We were out for just a few minutes laughing and shooting like mad. When I was processing these all I see is the creamy pastel of their skin against the white of the snow. Perhaps I just have pastel on the brain.

~ Pastel ~ 7/52 *Princess Rapunzel* (Second Submission)
I made this flower wreath today, originally for my daughter (see first submission). But since we were taking photos out by the goat pen…of course my brain goes to this….
I wish someone would have been video taping the shennanigans the ensued while trying to capture this image of Rapunzel the Princess Goat.

First of all the other two goats were trying to eat the flowers. So I was trying to ward them off all the while trying to adjust my camera settings.

Secondly, Rapunzel was freaking out because of the foreign object on her head. She kept moving her head around in all kinds of crazy positions.

Thirdly, she wanted to be right by me, so photographing her with the 50mm was downright comical.

I finally snagged a few images because she jumped up onto a wooden box, trying to figure any way possible to get the wreath off her head. I was then able to back up and grab this and a few other images.

I was laughing so hard. Oh how I love this farm life of mine

My baby girl turned one year old yesterday…sigh. She woke up to her nutty family parading into her room in the morning singing “happy birthday” and tossing pretty balloons in her crib.

7/52 – Pastel – Last week, our little grandson stayed with us for a couple of days while his mama and daddy battled a nasty virus. I loved every moment of it, but was reminded how very difficult it is to get anything done around the house with someone that is not quite stable sitting up and doesn’t like to be left alone. The second day, I came upon a solution to getting a little cooking done–I set him up in his bumbo seat in the kitchen with a few toys on his tray. Worked like magic!

“Pastel”…..Let me just say, this week was hard for me, and it sounds like many of you as well. Spring is just around the corner, there are no flowers out and about and everything is still in a state of half dead and brown. I have been seeing the many pink pictures and then, Huzzah! I remembered my little girl’s FAVE blanket. It’s not the soft pink that seems to be the predominant pastel, it’s the calming lavendar. It’s been up in the closet because I had to take it away for her to stop sucking her thumb. She was ecstatic to get it back and happily posed for me. Yay! M4H project 52 done for the week. High 5 for me! (and for all of you as well)

PASTEL…my chunky, funky, thrift store, infinity knit scarf. It’s probably my favorite clothing item that I own. {Maybe because it’s never too tight?!?!} I’m RARELY cold enough to wear it, even in these dreadfully cold Minnesota winters but I love it. All the texture and color makes me happy

7/52 Cyclone ‘Marcia’ messed with me this week; she did not allow my ‘vision’ to eventuate. But like sooooo may other weeks in this project, this picture happened organically. After a weekend of cyclonic weather I took these boys to the skate park on Sunday afternoon. I was bored… waiting for them to finish. I looked up from my phone…. Honzi and Luke are moving back to the Czech Republic. These boys don’t realise how special this picture is. Pastel or not. I could cry. #justlookup

Week 7 ~ Pastel

By: Jazzmin Schramm

Caption:
As mother of two boys and being the only “girl” in this household, this theme gave me a looooong thought this week. And my mind wouldn´t came up with a good idea. Until today, while I sat in my favorite spot and looked through our livingroom. All these lovely colors from the things I love so much everyday – the flowers, the knitting wool, the cushions – everything dipped in this sweet, soft light. I had to get my cam and took this shoot. And I knew immediately that this not so fancy or thoughtful photo will be my entry for this week. It tells a story of my everyday life. It tells my love for pastell colors. I tells my love for spring. It shows a piece of me. smile emoticon

Happy weekend everyone!

“Pastel” -
My little boy is 3 and talks a lot lately about marrying me. So as a surprise one night I had my husband bring him downstairs after I put my “princess dress” on, as he calls it. We danced and talked and he was in heaven. When he first came up to me, he whispered, “mommy I’m a little nervous.”
This picture isn’t technically perfect, the focus is off, there’s a high chair I wish weren’t in the corner. I struggled this week because I have two boys and pastel isn’t a part of our lives and I found myself trying to
force it all week. I kept coming back to 2 photos.

In my house we don’t “do” pastel. We do bright, we do loud, we do vivid, not just because we are a house full of mostly boys, but because we love vibrancy. I struggled this week with “pastel”, I tend to equate Easter with pastel or at least, less than two feet of snow on the ground. So I dug and I found these pastels, the only ones in the entire house.

6/52 | Happy

There are a lot of things that make me happy. But I have many of those things because of this guy.

Sometimes I think I don’t deserve him. He puts up with my weird OCD, my moodiness and my habit of taking out a lot of things on him. He supports everything I do without question. And at the end of the day he still looks at me like he did the day we met. When I spontaneously wanted him to trek out in the cold and snow to take photos because the golden hour light was so pretty, he grabbed his coat and offered to carry the tripod.

I don’t say it enough, but he makes me happy. Our life makes me happy.

{HAPPY} I had an appointment with my oncologist today and everything is looking good. This makes me happy.

Because I was already taking pictures of bras for other photo and art projects, when I was diagnosed with cancer I decided to document my story and to have a special bra for the journey. People send me BLING! and I pin it on Indigo the Bra and get a picture of her somewhere at each appointment.

At each appointment with my oncologist he asks me about Indigo. To day he reached out and took her and held her up, so I quickly snapped this picture.

I am happy to be cancer free :-0

Being happy can come to people in various ways. I know many people out there will see this image, and feel saddness. Sometimes I do too, but here is a part of my happiness. My grandparents, they are going on 59 years of marriage. My grandmother had a stroke in September of 2014. She has been in the nursing home ever since. She is paralyzed, and can’t really speak much. But he feeds her, he speaks for her, he holds her hand in comfort, he prays with her, he stays at the nursing home from early morning till late evening..every single day, he brushes her hair, put lotion on her feet, he loves her. She is his happiness. We know it won’t be long till she is not of this world, but he refuses to give up. He finds hope in every new day. They are my inspiration in life, marriage, and parenting. This my dear friends is real happiness, they are my heros. They make me happy.

Happy is being this in love with each other after 66 years of marriage. He is 88 and she is 90..They never dated anyone else after they went on their first date together 68 years ago. They still live in the house that was built by their own hands from plans they ordered in the mail and materials that were mostly recovered or bartered for. Where they raised three remarkable children. Where they have loved each other all through these many years…

Andrew playing with Alexander… it seems so mundane, but it is not. Both Addison and Andrew love their little buddy, but Addison LOVES Alexander. She plays with him all the time. She will sit with him, lay with him, bring toys to him, … that bond is amazing. Andrew usually does his own thing. He will play sometimes, but not always. This morning, Andrew turned off the light in Alexander’s room, crawled in his bed, and played with him like this for over 1/2 hour. Then he turned the lights on and played for probably another 1/2 hour. This photo, this morning, was so incredibly happy because of the bond Andrew was making with Alexander.

Nothing makes this boy happier than sports. He is dribbling a basketball as soon as he wakes up (which does not always make the other people still asleep super happy) or tossing a football. When he gets home from school, he drops off his back pack and heads outside to kick the soccer ball around or practice pitching. Today, he was perfecting his header and was so HAPPY when he finally got it figured out.
