Fall has crept up on us quite fast this year… I remember all the years before, for some reason the trees were brightly colored for weeks! This year half the trees turned orange-yellow while the others stood green and then BAM they all turned brown, just like that, within a week. And I was quite looking forward to this Autumn season.
I love pumpkin carving, fall decorations, and the fresh smell of pumpkin pie on these cold days. Warm roasted tomato soup with crispy grilled cheese sandwiches, dressing up in layers upon layers, and families coming together to celebrate Thanksgiving! Seriously what more should I say to convince you that Autumn is awesome?! ;) But the thing that doesn’t compare to anything that I just named is, families enjoying the changing of the leaves so much, they go out to take pictures!
And that brings us to the Makitrin family! We went out yesterday to walk around the beautiful downtown of our beloved Staunton and capture the beauty of God’s work along with the beauty of this blessed family. And God couldn’t have sent better weather for us to do just that! ;) Truly a blessing!
I just haaaaaave to finish the post with this baby! She was SO funny and absolutely adorable!

Alina and Artem is not your usual couple. If you’re thinking of what the usual couple is like and you’re listing; Cute, sweet, loving, respectful, caring, gentle, and absolutely perfect… Triple all that and you might have an idea of what these two are like. The hour that was spent with these two was incredible. Though they were somewhat shy to discuss their engagement story we know and can tell you that these crazy kids are crazy about each other and can’t wait to be married! Hallelujah! May God be glorified by their love!
Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Hey everyone, it sure has been awhile since I posted here. I’ve been somewhat focused on my FOODMONSTER blog and forget all about this one.
I was updating my phone yesterday to the iOS 5 and I spent the whole day playing with it! It was as if I was holding a brand new phone with brand new apps and updates. It’s AMAZING! I’m usually not a big fan of updates (Let’s take Facebook as an example). I hated it when I would just get used to something they’d go and change it around. The biggest thing I didn’t like was that they wouldn’t even “upgrade”, nothing improved just moved around.
But somehow with Apple products it’s completely different (Yes, I’m aware that I’m being biased right now). When they “upgrade” they improve on practically everything! They really strive to simplify things and fix everything that people complain bout! And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why they are priced so high… Not over-priced, but priced right. They make a good quality product that shouldn’t be priced cheap. I know people that compare Apple to so many different products and say “I get the same thing out of this for three times cheaper!” Well trust me, when you really sit down and compare them side by side, they will NOT be the same. They won’t even be close to similar… But of course, that’s just my opinion.
And that brings us to iPhone Friday! I haven’t been keeping up with these and have so many Instagram pictures stacked up, so enjoy!
Have a fantastic Friday! :D

I have been blogging about food on my photography blog and got sick of it. I figured it was time for a new blog. One with food, nutrition, recipes, pictures, and probably a few crafts here and there. I started the blog along with the CFV Diet but figured I’d share it with the world once it got a few more blog posts, and so I got five and thought I’d be enough… For now, of course.
I remembered last Christmas when I did the “12 Day of Christmas food recipes” and how much you guys enjoyed those. That gave me a bit more confidence to start a second blog. I’m hoping it’ll be as successful as this one, but if it won’t be then at least a few people will enjoy a recipe here and there ;). I would love to hear what you think about it and share your own food ideas with me! Don’t forget to subscribe and follow!
