home

I am from Muldrow, Oklahoma. Toby is from Roland, Oklahoma. Two small neighboring rival towns. We met at the only grocery store in Roland where we both worked. We got married a year and a half later, six months after I graduated. I was so in love with him my senior year of high school. And today, I am more in love with him than ever. He truly loves me just as I am.

Anyhow, enough of the mushy.... Here's a few of my favorite photos from our hometowns. They don't exactly show WHERE we live, but I'll get to that in another post. These are just shots I randomly took that turned out beautifully (in my opinion anyway). For your viewing pleasure:

This one is probably my favorite. It's just a big-o tree in a field between my mom's and Toby's mom's house.


Here it is in color, but I love the b&w more...


You see towers like this all over our towns. Usually, they don't have outhouses sitting in front of them; this one's the exception.


A different edit...


You see this building, which was once a store, on the road to Toby's parents house.
You'll also find tons of broke down buildings and houses in our home towns.


And this is a chimney that has been here forever...
We stopped so I could snap some photos of it.
Here's Toby's favorite edit:


Here's the color version:


And I think I like this one best:


I took pictures of EVERYTHING and I have to say I had sooo much fun doing it! I love going home to visit family! I'll be posting more of what our towns actually look like throughout the rest of the week!

Toodles!!
