Randomography: Take 1

Updated: After reading what Jess had to say, I realized she has a good point. What is randomography? Well, essentially it's Random Photography. It can be any random pictures you like, and somehow - they still tell a story. And sometimes, it's more fun just to let the pictures tell the story, rather than words. Hopefully that helps you makes sense of the somewhat random pairing of photos below. Thus ends my sad attempt at defining this made up word. Thankyouverymuch.
Before I start, I need to declare that this is not my original idea. I have borrowed it from HERE. I saw it as a great idea, and I'm going to try it out for myself. So...without further ado...

I woke up this morning to find this out of my window.

and this...

and this.

Pretty, no?

I have turned 26. It has come and gone. But not without some great pics (and hopefully more to come!)

Below are just of the few of the people who are my constants, and who made my day, my day.

(Where's my husband you say? He's behind the camera in this one!)

I Digress

Do you ever find yourself going through a dry spell? Where you just can’t find anything to write about? I do. And the thing that really bugs me is when I have an urge to blog, but have nothing of consequence to say. It’s a little funny here in this blogging world (well at least for me): I feel as if I constantly need to come up with creative, enticing, entertaining and witty posts. But if I’m here to show who I really am…sometimes, I’m just not creative. I’m not entertaining, or witty. Sometimes, I’m just me plus no extras. And I would like to think that it’s okay. But it’s just harder to write when I feel like I have nothing to say. I have half started recipes, with no pictures. I have pictures, with no recipes. I have random pictures of random people, things and places, but not much of a story to tell. Maybe it’s hard for me because I want something to say. I think what I need to realize is: who cares? I don’t have to say anything earth shattering or share pictures that will “change your life.” I can, but I don’t have to. It feels good just saying that. Maybe I’ll just stick with randomness. And, if THIS is any indication, randomness doesn’t seem like such a bad thing after all. His words and pictures can be random…but somehow they always tell a story. Thanks for listening as I work my way through this…oh, and look at that – I can already feel the dryness lifting…
