Light drives out darkeness

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
Martin Luther King Jr.

This lamp at my mother's house is one of my favorite things she owns. At night, it creates a thousand sparkles everywhere. It brings me such joy and such happiness.

Leaves and trying to like selfies...

I have a hard time taking selfies, well, I guess selfies of just me. I have my own insecurities, my own issues which I won't go into, but I have always loved taking photos, I am so comfortable behind a lens. Well, I have been pushing myself to take more with me and also as part of my gratitude challenge, sometimes, just putting down the laptop, enjoying the moment.

One afternoon after work, the light an the leaves in my tree were so pretty, I just had to play and enjoy myself. It was such a fun little moment.

At the beginning of last month I desperately wanted to go to a pumpkin patch. I have trouble not doing these child like things, sometimes I think part of me is just a 9-year old girl itching to get out.

Last year I had so much fun going to the Pumpkin Patch with some of my family, but this year I wanted to include more, and after this experience I am going to try to make it a larger family fun day. 

I took my niece Emily and Natalie and we got to enjoy taking a hayride to get pumpkins, go through a corn maze and also play some games. It was so much fun and the girls I think had a great time... only rule we had in the pumpkin patch, "You have to be able to carry your pumpkin yourself." It worked, and it was funny to see who wanted the big pumpkin compared to the small one. Such a fun memory and now an annual tradition.

A little video I made for YouTube of our fun...

The girls had fun running through the corn field..

The girls also had fun on the corn slides, seeing a pig race and on a cow ride.
