My sweet friend Marissa gifted me her Spell bell bottoms for my birthday!  I almost couldn't believe it when I opened the package!  And I thought this floral crown was just the perfect accessory for these threads.

A little update on our deer friends.  The babies have now joined in on the feeding.  Just a few weeks ago their mamas kept them on the sidelines in the woods, but now they are letting them come hang with the big guys.  They are so sweet.  At first they were pretty timid and would run easily but now they are some of the first to run up and don't get spooked as easily.  There were just two babies that came around but now there are three!  I don't think my excitement of seeing the babies will ever go away.  I hope they grow up to be our friends.

And of course with this many deer, in the Texas heat, there is bound to be some tension.  I caught a few fights on my camera, but that one above tops them all so I'll just share that one.  And we got our first male in the yard below!  Look how stunning he is.  He doesn't come around regularly, usually its just the females.  He was pretty shy, but we've seen him a few times now.  I just love his fuzzy antlers.

Last week I almost got one of the adult mamas to eat out of my hand.  She ate next to me for about 10 minutes within 1-2 feet distance.  It was so amazing.  One day... it will happen!

And OMG!!!  The best thing happened the other day but I wasn't able to photograph it, but when we walked outside to leave one afternoon I looked over and one of the baby deer was laying inside my teepee!!!  It got spooked so I only saw it for a split second but it was the sweetest thing ever!  I had told them that they were more than welcome to use the teepee, but didn't really expect to ever see on of them in it, much less a baby!!!!

A WALK THROUGH THE WOODS

One of my favorite ways to relax and rekindle my soul is to walk through the woods, very slowly, with camera in hand.  I like to pay close attention the all the details around me.  Take a closer looks at the leaves on the ground, or the way the light shines through something, or the textures of a piece of bark.  It seems to reconnect me with the earth and fills me back up.  Capturing these things with a camera is just second nature to me.  I wish all the time my eyes could take photos.  Especially when sitting in the passenger seat on drives...  These images are from one of my walks last week.  I love finding hidden surprises, like a dandelion petal stuck inside a deer skull.  How magical.

Quite possibly the easiest place to fall in love with someone, by the fire side... Have you ever fallen for someone by the fireside???

What a strange week this has been.  Between the death of little velvet and Robin Williams I have found myself pretty emotional, and thinking about my folks alot.  The past few days I have found myself in moments of long silence, falling into sickness that I am trying super hard to nurse before it gets bad, and wanting to crawl back into bed alot.  Which I did a few times... 

You may notice some changes on the blog sidebar... I spent some down time yesterday playing around with it.  I just got a burst of needing a fresh feel over there.  I may change somethings still since it was a quick fix and very spur of the moment.

And yes, this post is a little all over the place, a good mirror for my brain at the moment.
