My name is Anna. I Love God.
I grew up on 5 acres in Oklahoma. I wished it was 500. We had cows. I wanted horses. We had a farm. I wanted a ranch. I loved watching westerns, dreaming of what it would be like to live in the days when ranches in the west were common. I would have loved to have been more country than I was. I would have loved to be a true Cowgirl. But I’m country enough.
I am a wife & stay at home mom. Together my husband (Mr. Right) and I have the two most beautiful kiddos (Little Dude & Miss Thang) on the planet…..no really, they are the most beautiful.
I’m not biased or anything. =)
I love all things country. Not country blue and mauve. Real country- hay bales, old beat up trucks, spurs, cowboy hats & boots, rodeos, bull ridings, cows, horses, saddles, horseshoes, etc etc.
I adore paisley, argyle and plaid.
Palm trees and fleur de lis are pretty awesome too.
My favorite color is green, but blue is a very close second.
I have always wanted to be able to write. A book, an article, a short story, anything, just to write.
I am a list freak.
Nutella, iced coffee, Reese’s mini’s & Pepsi or Mt. Dew (depending if it’s a light or dark day) are crucial to my well being.
I consider Green Eyed Country Girl to be a photography/lifestyle blog. Maybe it’s something completely different. I write there about my journey as a photographer, awesome things I find on pinterest, food I love, gardening (the good & the bad, mostly bad – as in failed), fashion that I love, and other random bits and pieces of my life as a mom to 2 crazy kids and wife to a super husband.
I love taking photos. I love the creativity, making each photo mine. I love how being a photographer makes me look at everything differently than I used too. I look at the light differently, think about how something would or should be photographed. I love the editing process almost as much as the photographing. I like seeing how different effects can completely change the mood of a photo. I love the feeling of satisfaction when I know I have taken a good shot of something or someone.
I like to post new recipes that I’ve tried or that look good to me (that are pinned on a pinterest board titled new recipes to try but to be honest will more than likely not ever be tried).
I like to garden (or maybe it’s the idea of gardening I like?) and I like finding cool gardening ideas or tips and posting about them too.
I love fashion. Polyvore is my friend. I like making outfits and then pretending I can afford to buy $6000 pairs of adorable shoes. (NOT.) I like to post my polyvore sets on here on Friday’s and act like I am super good at fashion. (Also NOT.)
Sometimes I also post random things about life at home with the 2 crazy kids and the 1 crazy husband. I love them. They are mine.
