  1. Ahhh! So pretty I'm dying! XDDD
    My favorites are #5, #6, #8, #12 + #13.
    They are all so pretty! And that line, at the end, it was so short but so full of truth it was like, AHHHHG! XDDDD

    <3 <3

    1. Thanks!! I liked 13 too. :)
      I know! It just popped into my head a few weeks ago and I didn't want to forget it. It just gives such a beautiful feeling doesn't it? :)

  2. SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!! My favorites are numbers 1, 6 and 11.
    Gah! The gorgeousness is just crazy!!!! Totally need to get a camera...
    Hey do you have any reccomendations for cameras????
    "Home is where the trees grow tall and the rivers run deep." << SO TRUE FOR ME!!!! I love trees and lakes and mountains and creeks and snow and your pictures!!! Thanks for another AWESOME post!!

    1. THANK YOU!!!! ;) Awesome! Glad you liked them!
      Yes, you do. ;) Pretty soon here I'll have to be buying one for you for your birthday . . . . say, when's your birthday? ;)
      Wow, you are so sweet! I'm so glad you like my photos so much. Your comments always brighten my day.
      No problem! Thanks for following and making this blog worthwhile! :)

    2. Gosh, so sorry about not replying to your camera question! xD It totally slipped my mind until just now when my sister yelled from the other room, "Hey! You never replied to Esther's camera question!" And I'm like, ". . . Ooops . . . Sorry, Esther! Got a little carried away by my jokes I guess. . . . " ;)

      Let's see, well the first step would be deciding between a Nikon or a Canon. There isn't really a big difference so don't stress about it too much. I have personally have only really worked with Nikon DSLRs (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) except for a little Point-And-Shoot Canon I had when I was like 10, but I know people who have Canons that work great too. Here's a link to a friend's blog—she uses a Canon EOS Rebel SL1: I have a Nikon DSLR D7000 with a 50mm lens. I believe mine cost me around $300-$400 if I remember correctly. The total came to $603 with the lens included.
      The Nikon website classifies their cameras by levels (ex. Entry-Level, Enthusiast, and Professional). I believe mine came from the Enthusiast category, but you could totally get by using an Entry-Level. :) It's really the photographer that counts, not so much the camera. My older sister, Sarah, has a Nikon D3100 (she says it was around $500 with the kit lenses) and my mom has a Nikon D80 (a pretty old model, but it still is in beautiful condition). It's hard to recommend you an exact camera, because they're all so unique if you know what I mean. You really just have to have a good idea of what you want in your mind and then go and find it. I've discovered from experience that if you don't know what you want, it's easy to get roped into buying a camera with lots of unnessesary bells and whistles. A camera is a camera. It should be used for photography (and sometimes videos) ;) so just get something simple that fits your needs.
      I can't remember what other cameras I was wavering over this summer when I got my D7000, which really stinks. xD But I know you'll pick out something good. :D
      As for lenses, a 50mm fixed is a good starter lens. It's a close-ish lens, but it's also not insanely macro, you know? Pretty much all the photos on my blog are taken with a 50mm, so have a gander. :) Zoom lenses (vs. fixed lenses) are not as high quality, but if it's something you think will suit you better, then go for it. :D
      If you need any more help, just let me know. :) There are also lots and lots of great, informative articles peppered throughout the internet.

  3. Hahaha, that's totally fine!! I did wonder a bit, but I figured you just forgot. Thank your sister for me!!

    Thank you so much!! I will be sure to look into those!
    I was talking to my mum about it, and she said maybe I should get a phone with a good quality camera on it. It would be easier to upload them to the internet for blogposts and such without having to transfer then onto a computer. I have never had a phone before, and I wouldn't have wanted to get one (kind of an unnecesarry distraction, if you know what I mean) but I might be going to LA for a bit this September, and/or visiting my sisters in England, and/or visiting friends in Stubenville!
    Gosh I got stuff planned. I didn't realize. :)
    I'll be sure to ask if I have more questions. Thanks again!!!
