A Blast From The Past
Yesterday I wrote about the awesomeness that is my Husband as a Father and my Dad, grandpa, wrote the sweetest comment about his Dad, my Dee, and then my Brother, Monkey’s Uncle, wrote a wonderful comment about our Dad. One of my Dad’s new hobbies is scanning all of our family slides, photographs etc… into…

Very pretty, Rachel! I didn’t even bust out my DSLR all weekend, ashamedly–I only snapped a few shots with my iPhone! Bad blogger.
(And I’m still coveting your boot collection.)
Thank you, Kristin! I’m so sad that my schedule conflicted and I didn’t get to attend your session 🙁 I’m looking forward to seeing it on Blissdom at Home 🙂 🙂 and hopefully catching up with you next year!!!
LOL – the last conference I went to, I took maybe 4 shots and all of those were iPhone – I so feel ya 😉
🙂 hee hee 🙂 my boots 😉
My session went pretty quick as it was the very end of the weekend, and I sort of got the impression people were tired from that huge lunch and just ready to clean up for Girls Night In, ha! =) Now that I’ve been once, I’ll know what to expect (and prepare for if ever I speak again) next year!
Nice photos! Blissfully wordless 🙂
Spring is around the corner is what the first 2 brought to mind. Beautiful. Help me out here. What is the last picture?
My leg 😉
Hmmm. If you say so.
ha 😉 It’s my thigh and if you look into the picture you can see the outline of my boot, it was in a REALLY dark restaurant.
These are pretty and cool all at the same time. And WHAT, pray tell is in that salt shaker!? 😉
Thanks, Elaine! It’s the ADORABLE idea and goodie that came with http://saltandnectar.com ‘s business cards. They’re little mango (or peach) tic tacs.. isn’t that brilliant?
AWW thank you, doll!
Gorgeous artsy fartsy pics!
LOL 😉 Thank you, darling friend.
As usual, sad I missed it. Maybe next year. Were you sponsored for the conference?
Also I miss your face. Holla next time you’re coming my way. You know you guys are welcome to stay with us any time!
Sarah, I wasn’t sponsored. I’m sad you weren’t there, too 🙁
I know, I miss you, too! We seriously need a trip! I’d love to come stay with you, you’re so sweet! XOXO
you’ve got a great eye , i wanna be you when i grow up
is that JennyOnTheSpot? she’s a riot
awww, friend xo Thank you! Yep, that’s Miss. Jenny! I do so adore her 🙂
Gorgeous pictures Rachel. You captured everything so beautifully. I live in Nashville but rarely get to the hotel and I forgot just how beautiful it really is. It’s a “living” hotel and you captured that in your photos.
So bummed I didn’t get a chance to say hi to you this year. I wanted to stop by and say hi on your blog. Have a fantastic day! 🙂
Thank you so much, Krista. I know how it is, when you live somewhere you tend to forget about the things you have right under your nose. Sometimes it’s fun to play tourist in your own town — especially at the Gaylord Opryland! 😉
I love your pictures so much. They are so beautiful. Especially when you take pictures of food. 🙂
I’m glad I got the chance to meet you briefly. Maybe next year we can talk a bit more.
Kelli, you bless my heart so <3
I'm glad we met, too! I'm so grateful for all the minutes that I had with people this year... next year, we need to steal a few more and have a real talk! 🙂
Those photos are stunning!
Thank you, so much! One of the things that I’m really aiming for this year is spending more time with my camera for fun and joy! 🙂 The photo walk at Blissdom was so inspiring!
Those photos are completely stunning!
Great shots! I want to have that kind of DSLR.
Thank you, Angel. You can get great shots with any kind of camera, it’s all about the heart and eye behind the camera.
beautiful. I love the salt? shaker.
Thanks! Isn’t that vintage Salt Shaker adorable! It was one of the business card extras from one of the Blissdom attendees.
Beautiful collection is a bliss day for me. Thanks for sharing this with us..
Thank you, Natalie.
Gorgeous photos. Part of me wishes there were words along w/ the post, but I’m also glad to just look and admire the photographs. The salt shaker is pretty neat, took me a while to figure out what that was.
Nice photos, I really like the first two better than the rest. Thanks for sharing them
Your photos were so professionally done that I am going to ask you to post rmore for us to enjoy.
