Well, I've held onto this photoshoot and savored it all summer but now it's time to share some of it here at Country Cottage Living! I'm only sharing some because my wish is to include the images in a published book one day! My niece, Andrea Michelle Photography, joined me on this sunrise morning and I'll be sharing only a few of her images at this time as well! Enjoy!
"Kindred Spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world." L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
My dear friends went out of their way to find me three lovely young ladies (all redheads) for this photoshoot! It couldn't have gone any better!
The Lake of Shining Waters!! (really Willie's Lake)
A picnic of raspberry cordial, boiled eggs, chicken salad sandwiches, old-fashioned oatmeal cookies and apples!
"Dear old world', she murmured, 'you are very lovely and I'm glad to be alive in you." -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
"Red hair is my life long sorrow." -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
“Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I'd look up into the sky—up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I'd just feel a prayer.” -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
That concludes today's "Inspired by Anne" sneak peek! You'll just have to wait for the rest (shared here or maybe in a magazine or book!)
