The Tag Masterpost

Here you are, as promised. Enjoy!

The Liebster Award:
I've been nominated for this one before. (Here)
Pfft, I'm doing it anyway.
- Thank the blog who nominated you and link back to them. (Thanks Laura!) - Nominate up to 11 other bloggers to receive the award. To be eligible, they need to have 200 followers or less. - Answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you. - Tell your readers 11 random facts about yourself. - Give your nominees 11 questions to answer on their blog when they post their nomination.
Questions first:
1. How did you pick your blog name? Well, for a while, it was The Shy Introvert, I think I chose it mainly because I was extra shy, and it had a nice ring to it. However, back in September, I concluded that I should change my blog name, and asked for a few ideas, among them was Rustling Thoughts. 
2. What makes you really happy? Being with my family, also spending some quality alone time with a good book.
3. Have you ever traveled outside of the country?

I have procured a laptop, I repeat, I have procured a laptop!

But first, Happy Easter to all!

We essentially had an open house for our entire church (which, as far as I know, does not consist of even one hundred people yet).

It was awesome. We had the house spic and span with flowers in almost every room downstairs. People came and went between 11 in the morning and 4(?) in the afternoon. Then after cleaning up, we lounged around for a bit. Aron (see the Family Blog if you don't know who he is), as well as Mom's parents and Aunt Lauren and Uncle Phil stayed with us for a late dinner and movie.

Earlier this year, I told Dad that I was going to start saving for a laptop. Because I wanted to have access to one whenever I needed one (because, writing inspiration at odd hours and brother needing the laptop for school can make things rather awkward), I wanted to blog more, and I'll most likely be needing one for myself for school related things.

A week or two ago, Aunt Lauren mentioned that she was going to be selling her laptop, and that…

The Big Picture Post

This is very very long, so if you would rather skip over it, that's fine, or if you'd rather wait until you have more than five minutes to read blogposts, that's fine too. You have been warned. :)
Back in *flips through calendar* November, I dragged Lydia out into the foggy morning for a photo shoot. Yes, it was a bit cold. Yes, the grass was wet. Yes, she did have shoes on.

Yeah, ok, all those shots are kind of dramatic-looking-ish, but do you have any idea how hard it was to get those?
For example: I'd have her sit down, like so:

Then ten seconds later, she'd look up at me like this:

Here's a more recent group:

I finally figured out how to do this without it being all grainy!
