a weekend of wishing

this past weekend has been a weekend of wishing.
it's a mean thing to do to yourself. so don't try it at home.
but, seeing as I put myself through wishing for things that can't be (at least not yet), 
I might as well share them with you all.

beautiful wish 1. 
wishing for a beautiful Nikon D3100.
the HD movie, the ISO, the everything.

see? it's plain mean.

adorable wish 2.
wishing to go to New Zealand. to see my little man, my darlin' girl and my baby boy (just in case anybody's wondering: they're my nephews and nieces!)
to see my beautiful church family.

I know. it's just cruel.

enchanting wish 3.
wishing for summer to come back.
that one's plain and simple.

fascinating wish 4.
wishing and dreaming of a huge, historic manor 5 minutes from where I live.
wishing that I could take it and renovate it.
and use it in all it's glory.

priceless wish 5.
wishing that my video-graphy was much, much better.
much, much, much better.
mucher better.

beautiful, adorable, enchanting, fascinating, and priceless truths.
I have friends. Beautiful friends.
I have Jesus. My wonderful Saviour.
I have my family. My priceless family.
and I have 184 followers. 184 enchanting, beautiful followers.

maybe my weekend of wishing did me good after all.
I know what I don't have, but I know what I have.
and it makes me love it all the more.

  2. Did you ever announce the spot the blogger winners?

  3. Nice blog post Jess. Hey, I have a giveaway going on this week. you might want to pop over to my blog for a chance to win.


  4. Apologies for not linking in yet - it's been hard to get into the museful mode recently - I haven't even posted on my other blog for weeks.

    I hope your camera wish comes true for you - I've got HD video and I've never taken a video yet.

    I like that bindweed wrapping itself all over your ivy flowers, the sunlight radiating through those leaves and your gorgeous bokeh.

  5. Love this post Jess!;) The pics are awesome! haha
    I know, when ever I end up wishing for something it's always makes me want it sooo much more than I already do!;) haha Love how you said, don't try this at home;)
    Wow you are a aunt? I didn't know that;)
