Coming Home

Photo by Erin Dietrich


I'm addicted. I'm admitting it. The Pioneer Woman's blog is hard to resist. Ree Drummond is the Pioneer Woman. She's a modern day Martha Stewart, but oh-so much cooler. She is a Jack-of-all-trades... posting everything from cooking tips, reader recipes, photography lessons & assignments, to the daily happenings in her busy life. She and her husband live on a ranch with their four kids (who she lovingly refers to as her "punks") and it seems there is never a dull moment. You could read one section of her blog and be entertained for hours. Me, I've become absolutely addicted to the photography crash courses and her weekly photo assignments. She invites her readers to submit photos (she gives them a theme) and then she posts the ones that speak the loudest to her. They are fun and always make me laugh or smile as I troll through the pictures. This week's assignment was coming home, which obviously can mean a lot of different things for many different people. She's honoring those who have served our country, and their families and friends who have supported them along the way. I bet that this series of photos will certainly move you, as they have me. They are inspirational at the very least. Amazing.
