Hi all. Just dropping in to say hello on this gorgeous Sunday morning. Before we head back to the beach today, I thought I'd post real quick. Here are a few images from several nights ago back when we walked the beach in Naples that evening. Brent happens to be in these with the kiddo's. He and Kenidi were dancing on the beach together part of that time and I managed to capture a couple of images from the moment. Girlie twirls & spins in the sunset with Daddy...

Maybe a little salsa dancin'...shakin' those hips with Daddy...

This shot below was taken on the beach several nights later over on Sanibel Island. She was showing Daddy her shell that she found. Love her stance and his body language in this one. The princess speaks and her prince (her Daddy) listens intently...

Brent was watching the kids play a few feet from me at one point and was allowing me a few minutes to snap some shots. I got this one of him. Loved it. Don't know why...just do.

And this one I got of Brennen with my telephoto lens. I was way far away and captured him looking for shells along the waters edge, carrying "Razzi" in tow.

Brennen and Daddy...(back in Naples again)

And this shot below is of Kenidi, just laying down in the sand. I caught her doing it and it reminded me of how relaxed I get when at the beach. She was just sugaring herself in the sand and truly in her element. I caught her enjoying life to the fullest at that second. When I snapped the legs of the teenage girls in the background too, I at first started to delete the picture and throw it out. However, the more I thought about and the more I looked at it once back at the house, the more I realized that their legs help to tell a story and describe a place. In the end, I felt that their presence, even though just their legs, added more character to the shot with Kenidi. Ultimately, the legs added "unique-ness" and I opted to keep the image rather than discard it.

And lastly, a facing forward shot of Kenidi chasing the birds. What great memories we have of another trip to South Florida. I don't know if we'll be back here before Summer again or not. Our Spring Break destination is undecided but in the works. No matter when we arrive back here, it'll never be soon enough. It's very hard to stomach the fact that we'll be flying back into Indy tomorrow night. (Monday) We'll be stepping off the plane to cold temps, a crazy busy week regarding the calendar and schedules, a Christmas tree that needs taken down and put away, laundry that will be demanding attention as it overflows out of the suitcases, and so on. I guess we call that "REALITY." Right? Life...praising God for it today and all that it breathes into us as well as takes from us.
Happy Sunday,

Hi Angie First I just want to start off by saying that you truely inspire be to the fullest. I am at the point in the spiritual warfare right know and really don't understand a lot of things. I read your blog from time to time for motavation. I really end to find a knew church home for our family. The DH and I pray for god to lead us, but maybe we are not praying hard enough because it seems like the devil steps in and dicourage us to even motativate ourselfs to go to church and then once I am there I really dont' get anything out of the word. I don't know whether or not it's me still being on milk in the word or the preacher just don't deliever it. I need some guidance. I have said the 2009 was going to be a change for the Brown Family and finding a chirch home that right for us and the kids. On another note becasue I can talk about this all day.I have read several of your blog post about the beach life. I think my family will plan a vaction to the Naple area pretty soon. But the only thing is we don't have a clue about the area. Where should we stay, eat, have fun with the kids etc. The kids are only 2 years old and 5 months so I know we want be able to party like rock stars like you and your family, but I know there are several other things to do in the area. Just let me know once you get back to INDY and settle in. By the way did you ever find out the name of the blue color paint inside your lovely INDY home as well as where you purchased the nice bar stools in the kitchen? Happy Sunday!
PS Sorry for the long post.

Hi Deidra. Keep your head up girl. So many of us have been where you are currently so many times. When we moved, I dreaded finding a new church home because I knew how tough it would be. However, after visiting several churches in the area, we finally found one that is for us. Although it is further away than some closer to our new home, it is worth the extra 15 minute drive. Finding a church home is never an easy task for anyone. And NO CHURCH will ever be "perfect." I'll be praying that God leads you and your family to a church that will make you feel welcome, interested, and satisfied in the word. In the end though, there will always be sundays (or saturday night services) that don't speak to you. Or at least you think they aren't. No matter what we think or feel though, we always gain something no matter how big or small from listening to God's words thru any pastor. Like you...I have a hard time adjusting to certain pastors. I need someone to speak on my level and break it down in leyman's terms for me. I need a pastor to preach it to me like he was carrying on a conversation with me rather than "ministering." Ya know?

So, don't feel alone. Like I said, we've all been there. Keep faithful. Stay positive. And don't stop looking for churches. You WILL find one. Oh and we all have Sunday mornings when Satan is whispering in our ear to stay in bed rather than get up and go. It happens to us all the time. Thus, why Saturday night services work better for our family. Even then, the enemy is always there persuading us to skip church and do something else or go veg out at home. You are no different than the rest of us in this world so don't beat up on yourself. :)

As for Naples, you let me know what you need to know if you decide to vacation here and I'd be happy to help you in any way I can. We've been coming here for 10 years now so we know it like our
2nd home-like the back of our hand. Anyone and everyone loves it here.

Lastly, I am so sorry that I spaced getting back to you about the counter stools in our kitchen. I read your question about that and meant to log onto your blog and let you know that they came from Pier 1 Imports. I obviously got side tracked and never did though. So sorry. As for the paint color in our house, I still need to go down to the basement and look in our utility room for that. I know its down there, it just requires me remembering to look. Ha ha! I'll try to remember next week when back home. Thanks for your patience sista'! :)

Keep your head up and keep smiling. It's a new year, a new slate. It's all good girl!

Hugs, Angie
