Hi, I'm Katherine Bowman from Iowa and I'm blessed to be living out the dreams that the Lord has placed in my heart! Having a photography business has been a dream of mine for many years. I feel that now is the right time to take the next steps and make it a reality. I am passionate about my relationship with Jesus Christ, my family, Brasil, staying fit, traveling, and of course photography. This blog is a reflection of myself. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or leave a comment below. Thanks for stopping by!

Day Off!

Yeah!  I'm so happy to have a day off today!  Monday night is a big night coming up at work with an awards banquet to prepare for... so I've been working extra this week to make sure that I can still take of today.  I had a lot of catching up to do this week too, I was out almost all last week due to bronchitis and lack of sleep from coughing in the night!  But I am much better now and ready for a day to myself.  Although it always seems to work out that when I have a day off, I try to pack as many things into it as possible!  Like a haircut, picking up my new glasses, adding more items on the baby registries, dropping off items at Goodwill, meeting either my mom or Jerod for lunch, depending on where I'm at at that time, cleaning out the basement, balancing the checkbook, paying bills and helping Jody set up tables for tomorrow.  And I hope to have all these things done by 5 p.m.  Ok, so maybe this day off isn't really about relaxing and taking some time for myself.  :)

Fall is here for sure.  We had some strong winds this past Sunday, up to 70 mph.  Most of the leaves are gone from our tree out front, but here are some pictures of the colors of fall.

Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On!!

I'm going into my 7th month of pregnancy and was pleased to experience the fact that i can still fit into my favorite pair of old jeans!  They're old and worn and just how i like them.  Although i can't get the zipper all the way up, because of the little bowling ball in front of me, but other than that, they fit fine!  Jerod threatened to throw them away because they have some holes in the legs, but they're so soft and comfy i can't part with them! :)  So instead of embarrassing him in public, i'll just wear them at home! :)

Giving Around The World

I knew it was about time to get the Samaritan's Purse catalog in the mail and it came this past Friday!  I love looking at it and seeing how we can give to the needy around the world.  When I was in Brasil, my heart really went out to the hurting children who had no homes, were making an income by selling drugs or prostitution and those that just needed loved.  This is one of my passions.  I know that some how the Lord will use For Him Photography to help those around the world.  Here are a few of my favorites from their site...

Gift #15, Clothing for those in need,  $25

Gift #30, Hot Meals, $7

Gift #3, Give An Orphan a Month of Loving Care, $35

Gift #8, Rescue a child from bondage and abuse, $75

Baby Stuff!!

The other day i went with my sister-in-law Hannah to look at baby supplies at Babies R Us! She's got a lot of friends with kids, so it was nice to have her give me insight on items! :) I found a stroller and car seat that i like, for some reason i thought this would be the hardest to find! Here they are, i plan on registering for them! :) They match each other and are charcoal grey with silver cubes on them... the Chicco series!

Tag - You're It!

So, I've been tagged by my friend Maureen!!  I've got to share 7 random or weird facts about myself!  This ought to be fun!  

1.   I have a cat named Bob (ok, it's really my brother's cat) that thinks he's a dog and wants to be a human.  I love him!!!
2.   I'd really like to get my hair cut differently, but most days I'm too afraid to even though I know it will grow back!
3.   The only things I've craved since being pregnant are fresh fruits and veggies and soups!
4.   I've lived in over 7 different cities/towns including Rio de Janeiro Brasil.
5.   I LOVE the change of the seasons!  Everything from the spring rains to fresh flowers to colored leaves to blankets of snow!
6.   The person who has had the biggest influence on my life would be my dad.  I learned so much from him.
7.   When I'm at work with Beth, I tend to sing out loud and LOUDLY too! :)

I actually only have one blog to tag!  J*, you're it! :)

Eye Opener

Last night Jerod and i has supper with some great friends from Brasil that were back in town.  Jeff and Diane are missionaries in Rio and have been there for a few years now.  Jerod and i met them for the first time when we were in Brasil in April and stayed a few extra days at their home. We all instantly got along and they are so much fun to be around!!

After supper we walked through the mall and my eyes were once opened again.  Diane had received a pair of Keen sandals in exchange for a pair of Brasilian Haviannas.  (Which are THE best flip flops in the world!)  So, in Brasil, these little flips can cost anywhere from $6 - $35 American dollars.  Diane's sandals were pretty nice so they were on the higher.  The mall had a Scheels inside so we went in to find out how much these Keens were.  When we went down the escilator, Jeff looked in front of him at the racks of cloths and sporting goods and said, "Do we really need all this?"  Now i had to remember that they've been in Brasil for a while and anytime you come back into the states, even if it's your home country, you will have culture shock.  His statement got me thinking and remembering what it's like in other countries.  The luxuries we have here are endless but yet so often taken for granted and people are left with wanting more.  

We found the Keens and they were exactly $95.  Diane had been blessed!  But really, she had been blessed regardless of what the price was.  

One of my favorite pictures i took in Brasil was of this little old ladies feet.  I could tell a lot about her by her feet.  And my eyes were opened again.
