Throwback Thursday #TBT

I love this one. I get lost in the details of these old photographs. Not sure of the year, I am assuming it is about 100 years old based on what they are wearing. It looks like it could be a wedding photo. Her dress is simply stunning. To die for!
Unfortunately this particular photograph does not have any information or writing on the back. I am assuming it is from my great-grandmother's family in Idaho. Many of her photographs were sent to her from her siblings and their children. 

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.   

A Little Inspiration 7.3.2014

I found this from the Brave Girls' Club yesterday and loved it so I thought that I would share it here.

One of the most powerful things we can do is to stand in our very own skin and proclaim out loud (even if we are our only audience) what we will and will not allow...what we will and will not believe in...what we will and will not fight for, or fight about...what we will and will not accept as truth for our life or ourselves.

Sometimes we think things...but we never claim those things powerfullly, or proclaim them. Sometimes we know something is not right...or we know something is very very right...but we never stand in our own power and make it real.  

You can find more Brave Girls' Club goodness HERE.

A Little Inspiration 7.2.2014

We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

Throwback Thursday #TBT

For today's Throwback Thursday photograph I bring you

a vintage selfie from the 1950s. 

   Simply a teenage boy playing around with his camera.

Oh how I love this! It makes me laugh.

I love the humor, the goofy-ness, and the fun of it.

This is my Dad's Uncle Jimmy. I found this small selfie when I

 was going through a large box of family pictures at my

grandma's house.

He had a great sense of humor, a sense 

of adventure, and above all he valued his family and friends. 

All of this is evident in the photographs that he took. 

I never knew him. He died when my dad was just a little boy. 

I feel like I have grown to know him 

through the lens of his camera and the photographs that he left

Throwback Thursday #TBT

It has been too long since I last posted. So here today another great picture from Grandma Joyce's vast collection.

This is Doc Englesby of Fruita, Utah. 
He was one of my great-grandpa's rock hounding friends. 
Our family loves this photograph of him taking a nap with his pups. 
I believe this photograph was taken sometime in the 1950s.
