Hair tutorial

Smashing girls with gorgeous locks . . . the track is "Cotton in the Grossness" by Bexar Bexar and the video was created by Tiger in a Jar. On my next long morning, when I have more primping time than usual, I will be giving these new styles a go!

Awandering we will go

Die Wildhornh├╝tte liegt im Naturschutzgebiet Gelten-Iffigen. We ventured out on Saturday morning and up, up, up the mountain we climbed. The contrast in terrain was striking. At one moment we were stripping off layers, sweltering in the heat, and at the next, we were bundled up, trudging through the snow. After a day of wandering through God's majestic creation, we reached our destination. Ovaltine and hot milk awaited us at the top. Despite rather tight quarters, we all slept soundly and awoke to a day of slipping and sliding back down the mountain.

Tea time at Wittlingen

These photos were taken at Wittlingen, the dorm where I lived as a sophomore and junior in high school. My room, both years, overlooked this sprawling backyard with its tire swing and wild strawberries. On lazy spring days, we would take our after-school snack outside and have a picnic in the warm sunshine . . .

The stylish men in my life

I love these two men, not for their GQ-worthy style, though I would contend they are the most handsome men I know, but for their compassion for those in need. They love others with a selfless love and they are devoted, mind and heart, to the pursuit of the Truth. Leaders among men and humble in spirit, I am honored to call them father and brother.

The Gunderson Family

Such a beautiful arrangement and what talent they each possess! I had goosebumps after first listening to this incredible family. Cameron and Trey, we have some work to do : )
