My Littlest Love

Photobombed. Again.

Back in the day, I used to pride myself with photography and camera skills.  I practiced taking hundreds of photographs of leaves, trees, sunrises and sunsets, clouds and anything else that would stand still long enough for a photograph.  It was easy.  And it was fun.  Then I bought alpacas and the fun really began!

Twins? Did you really say twins?

It was a normal day much like any other day. I woke up early and enjoyed a cup of coffee on the patio while watching the warm August sun appear over the eastern side of our acreage. I love this time of day. In total solitude, I can plan the day's activities and make mental [...]
