I spy....

 I spy with my little eye...

someone you trust..

greatest parents ever, I couldn't imagine anyone more perfect to represent what love is

someone to make you laugh..

someone to be help raise your babies..

someone that makes you excited..

someone who surprises you..

someone who gives you butterflies..

 your best friend..

someone who cherishes you..

someone to lead you..

someone supportive...

Matthew 19:6 
"So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” 

I am truly bless to have such wonderful examples of Proverbs 31 women and Ephesians 5:25 men in my life.

Thank you all for modeling for With Charm & Grace!

P.S. Valentines Day, is stupid.

Counting Down, Day 53

Psalms 53:6
Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

Night Shot W/C&G

I absolutely love night time shots! 
They're extremely hard to capture, but after finally
setting everything up correctly, you just might catch that perfect moment.
So, when my friend asked if I would take a picture
to be the center piece in a room and told me 
that he had a night time theme in mind....
I kinda, sorta had a little, baby, freak panic attack.
Then I got over it.

So last night I hiked up this mountain, that just so happened to be a grave yard, in the dark while wearing my sparkly Toms..

 I must admit, it was worth it.....

I do believe he will be pleased!

Counting Down, Day 54

This passage is too amazing to just pick one verse, every high school girl should read this every single day.

Psalms 54
Save me, O God, by your name;
vindicate me by your might.
Hear my prayer, O God;
listen to the words of my mouth.

Arrogant foes are attacking me;
ruthless people are trying to kill me—
people without regard for God.

Surely God is my help;
the Lord is the one who sustains me.

Let evil recoil on those who slander me;
in your faithfulness destroy them.
I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you;
I will praise your name, LORD, for it is good.
You have delivered me from all my troubles,
and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.

Thanks, Angie.

Nail salons are an intimidating place!
Ya know, you walk in and everyone stops
........and stares at you.
"oh hi what you liiike?"
"I uhm..I uh..pedicure. I.. I.. I would 'liiike' a pedicure"
Now every snobby, tropical nails regular is like 'what does this chick have a st st st-udder?
"pick color you liiike"
okay okay color, you're all paranoid you're going to pick the wrong color, you wonder if dang President's wife sitting over there has a trade mark on one of these, you're all checking the labels..
You wanna look like you're actually doing something other than wondering if you had any of that broccoli left in your teeth from lunch..
So ANGIE sits you down in this big comfy massage chair.
This chair is awkward for three reasons.
okay, #1 its like a dadgum thrown (which is so fine because I'm a princess), but now you got this foreign chick is rubbing your feet, and legs when you remember you forgot to shave your legs this morning....and last week.
So basically you feel even more awkward because you're thinking she thinks you're dirty
Now #2,you have to deal with this dang remote, the one that is bigger than your freaking arm. You dont know what the hell button to push because you know if you push that ONE wrong button its going to start reason number #3...
(this is 'the look' for you that are unfamiliar with such icon.)
man that freggin thing gets going and you instantly sit up because its causing you to shimmy like Shakira.
Well now you feel overly awkward and the tiniest bit scandals because of the way you've got your goodies shimmying all over the place in front of the
Michelle Obama and all these sweet foreigners.
No wonder American's have such a bad rep!!
Now 'Angie' has to put on her latex gloves on to rub my feel as she begins to whisper in N.S.G. (nail salon gossip)...
of course I don't know, but I would assume my responses would be something like...
"COME ON NOW ANGIE!!! It's winter time, I know its been too long since I have been here..hey, come on, NO Genuis did not call me,
they're not that long!!"
So paint goes on, cool, great, thanks Ang.
(yeah, we're on a half-first-American-name basis now
Now wants you to waddle like a old, pregnant, penguin , barefoot across the salon's floor.
So I spray this suckers down and jet out the door, I've had enough. Catch ya on the flip side Ang ;)

Tell me,
am I the only one that can't relax while getting a pedicure?

Counting Down, Day 55

Psalm 55:13-14, But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers.

And The Count Down Begins..

Tomorrow will be exactly 8 weeks away from the day that I begin Photogenx in Kona, Hawaii.
That means that today is day...

57, you guessed it.

So, I have come up with a little way to entertain myself...and the rest of you that are as excited as I am!

Everyday I will post a new picture of the number of days that are left in the count down.
Each week will have a theme.

Week 8: Kitchen
Week 7: Everyday items
Week 6: Around Town
Week 5: Electronics
Week 4: Nature
Week 3: Body
Week 2: Music
Week 1: My Family

Each day will have my favorite verse from the number of the day's chapter, in

Day 57: Psalms 57:9-10
I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;I will sing of you among the peoples. For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

Hope you all enjoy counting down with me!
I love to hear any suggestions or ideas!

Counting Down, Day 56

Psalms 56:13, For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
