Once again.

Home has been a strange word for me ever since coming back to the states. I've traveled around a lot this summer and when asked where I'm from, each new acquaintance has received a somewhat confusing and long-winded reply. I'm kind of from here and there, maybe? Anyway, this feels like "home" now. It's like I belong; like God has put me exactly where He wants me to be and I'm doing what He wants me to do. I can't ask for more than that.

Where have I been all summer? Here and there. I best express myself in images. My summer was most definitely well captured and documented in photographs so I'll let them do the talking.
Atlanta, GA
CNN headquarters. duh.
The World of Coke
Crazy road trips with my youth group.
Giant yellow cowboy hats.
529 kids at VBS = a pie in the face for me!
the coolest mime ever.
Beastly 80's band
Paco's Revenge
El Paso, TX
Fun photo shoots with great friends.
New family.

St. Louis in the Springtime

I know, I know..... it's been awhile. Relocating around the world and getting readjusted to being back in the states hasn't left much time for blog posting. I was in IL for the past three weeks, going through boxes and barrels and trunks of my stuff to haul back down to Texas. The fun part was seeing family and friends again and spending a good deal of time playing at our old hangouts. Here are some of my favorite shots from a day spent in St. Louis with my sister, brother, and uncle:

deep in the heart of Texas.

What a lovely time I've had these past few weeks!

Some things that make me smile:

Big blue skies..... and super-sized works of art.

Waking up on a frosty morning to discover the world covered in snow!

snow elephants.

Serving others.

French toast and toothpick bridges.

Taco Bell

Lazy days and happy snapshots with my dearest friend.

Aeroplanes and Cacti

In the past week I have spent over 48 hours traveling, visited four different countries, and passed through eleven different time zones. Ah yes, jet lagged indeed. Here is a jumble of shots from here, there, & a little in between.

I've traveled to India two different times within the past year. Here are some of the shots I took in the city of Chennai:
