☼ Love in My Arms & the Sun in My Eyes ☼

And I feel life for the very first time
Love in my arms and the sun in my eyes
I feel safe in the five a.m. light
You carry my fears as the heavens set fire

Technicolour Beat // Oh Wonder

Another photoshoot? You guys are probably getting bored of those. I’m not that sorry, though. I’ll try to put up a comparison of Parker and Ivy sometime soon (they’re my cute lil Asian girls and they have the softest hair ever).

So! Here are some pictures of Nevaeh and her guitar by a patch of wildflowers in the garden. The instruments American Girl sells are so adorable, and I want all of them, honestly. At the moment, the only ones I have are the guitar and violin.

If I manage to post that comparison before July (is it really going to be July in two weeks?), that will be the most posts I’ve done in one month since . . . January? Yeah, January. I can’t tell if that’s disappointing because four posts in a month is a record for 2017, or happy because I’m getting slightly better at posting on here.

I’m guessing most of you are out of school, yeah? I’m mostly finished; I just need to complete my Koine Greek workbook (what can I say, I’m a nerd). Do you guys have any fun plans for the summer? Or are you going to spend your time inside with the air conditioning and wifi?

// Golden Days //

Featuring Miss Parker and random lines from Panic! at the Disco’s “Golden Days”.

Oh don’t you wonder when the light begins to fade?
And the clock just makes the colors turn to grey

Forever younger growing older just the same
All the memories that we make will never change

We’ll stay drunk, we’ll stay tan, let the love remain
And I swear that I’ll always paint you

Golden days!
Golden days!
Golden days!
Golden days!

I bet they never even thought about
The glitter dancing on the skin

The decades might’ve washed it out
As the flashes popped like pins, hmm

In the summertime
In the summertime

Time can never break your heart
But It’ll take the pain away

Right now our future’s certain
I won’t let it fade away

Golden days!
Golden days!
Golden days!
Golden days!

It was really gorgeous this evening, so I took Parker out to the treehouse and snapped some photos in the dying light. I love flower crowns, and Parker looks lovely in hers. I like how the yellow stands out against her hair.

I balanced Parker on a tree branch for some of the pictures. That was kind of terrifying. She didn’t fall off, though. I guess balancing dolls on uneven surfaces is a skill I’ve acquired over three years of blogging. ;)

Spring Frolics ~ an AGPS

Hi! Happy Mother’s Day. :)

I spent the night at my BFF’s house yesterday, and while it was awesome (Silly String fight! Wii Party! Butterbeer! Harry Potter movie!), I’m glad to be at home with my dear, faithful little laptop.

Anyway, I wanted to share a photoshoot of Isabelle (who, coincidentally, had the same name as my friend mentioned above). She’s really pretty — I don’t know why she isn’t featured on here more! Actually . . . I do know. MJ and Savannah and Saige have stolen the spotlight. (Better get on dancing into your own spotlight, Isabelle.)

Oh, yeah. The pictures. Enjoy!

Golden Hour ~ an AGPS

Eve and Ellie, my newest girls, haven’t been getting the attention they deserve. I took them out yesterday during the golden hour — an hour before sunset — for a photoshoot. Enjoy!

Eve, apparently, has a stalker-ish obsession with tiny flowers. Weird.

DSC_0777

Caroline’s birthday was yesterday (October 22)! She told everyone that she didn’t want a party; all she asked for was a photoshoot. Of course, I couldn’t say no . . . Just look at her sweet face!

Buckle up, because this is going to be a loooooong photoshoot.

It’s possible that I might have taken more photos of the flower than of the doll . . .

Whew! That was long. But once I started taking pictures of Caroline I just couldn’t stop!

P.S. I added two new pages — Awards and Blog Buttons. Also, I cleaned up my sidebar. :)

Ruby Bloom ~ an AGPS

Today is the first day of the AG Fan Meet-up! If you’re participating, please draw a star on your hand, wear a blue shirt, and go to Michael’s. I’m wearing a baby blue soccer T-shirt with a number one on the back. Oh, and I cut my hair, so now it’s shoulder length, and my eyes are still that weird undecided color. Seriously, I asked on my other blog what color my readers thought my eyes were (see that post here), and I got so many different answers: a mix between gray and blue, blue, gray, gray-green-blue, the sea before a storm (a loved that description!), gray mixed with a bit of green, and green-gray with hints of blue. I guess I’ll never know what color my eyes are :P

Anyway, today’s post is a photoshoot of MJ.
