that describes my heart these days
so come right on in

hope in the sky

"When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant
between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 
Genesis 9:16

Sometimes the beauty of the sky overwhelms me. Thank you, Lord, for Gulf Coast sunsets.

letting the good times roll

It's carnival season on the Gulf Coast! Celebrating Mardi Gras is kind of a new thing to me since I'm not from here, but I have to say, it's kind of fun. My husband and I had big plans to head to New Orleans for parades today, but we opted out because it's too cold. I'm in the spirit though, so I decided to put together this little collection of photos from our Mardi Gras parade here in Ocean Springs last week--when it was warm! Hope you enjoy. :)

Are you letting the good times roll in your neck of the woods, too?

Café Du Monde (three ways)

I spent a really fun Saturday in New Orleans a couple weeks back with my husband and some friends. It's such a photogenic city, and this was my first trip with my new camera! One of the shots I like from the day is this simple one of the ultra-touristy-but-still-awesome Café Du Monde. I'm showing it three ways here: the top version is straight-out-of-the-camera, the middle one is after editing, and the bottom one is after adding some texture.

What do you think? I am always a bit iffy about the texture thing, but I think I like the old-fashioned look here. Do you agree? (Is the bottom version better than the middle one?) Which one needs to be available in my shop?
