Today was a warm, rainy Christmas Eve in Georgia. The weather is like Mother Nature is going through Menopause or something. Hot, then freezing, then moody with Lightning and days of rain. Snow is not one of my favorite 4 letter words, at all. When on the rare occasion it does snow, im over it after an hour and I want it gone. With that said, Ive always wanted a white Christmas, too many Christmas movies I guess, but it seems like it would be so "Christmasy" if it was white outside. Maybe one day my girls will have that opportunity. Ill still bitch about the amount of laundry from the kids changing every time they go outside and the mud being tract in, but atleast I can say we experienced it. #RandomNuggetofKnowledge

Life is a series of obstacles, full of sharp #barbwire put there to test how thick your skin is. It is meant to tear you open causing you to bleed and hurt. It gives you two choices, You can either stay put and nurse your open wounds and never move forward, or suck that shit up and keep going. You'll eventually learn how to navigate the path ahead of you, ensuring you come out unscathed. Sure youll have scars. They will remind you everday that you never will make the same mistakes twice. #preachesfrompeaches
Ive been an Instagram Addict long before it was flooded with bathroom selfies from 13 year old girls with daddy issues, the Kardashians weren’t flaunting their asses there yet, and tag #skyporn wasnt all Duck Faces and boobs. Long before it was bought out by Facebook, turning it into a “cool” place to be fake.
I needed a creative outlet, being a stay at home/ Homemaker whatever, to have a little piece of my prior self back. Also to get a little “me” time in too. So I started sharing my love of photography on IG with like minded individuals who see the same beauty in things that I do. A community of awesome folks that have encouraged me to learn about editing and all the other photography related things you need to know to grow your craft into something worth sharing. I started out with a great eye and absolutely no knowledge about resolution, composition, color correction, well you get the picture, I didn’t know shit except that something was picture worthy and I needed to snap it and share. I have grown into more of myself on IG, meaning I say what I want instead of being fearful of what others may think. I use to only use hashtags and a short explanation about the pic or a polite hello to all my followers. Now I say what I feel, it may be some random Nugget of useless knowledge, a funny adult content quote I like, something that pisses me off, makes me happy or something I love and Im proud of. They usually have zero to do with the photo.
The hashtag I accompany many of those nuggets with is, #PreachesFromPeaches. Some are funny, but most are thoughts about stuff that matter, to me anyway. If your on Instagram Check me out @SwtgaPeach28 there is a link somewhere in my profile.
