GA Gov Nathan Deal declares Emergency ahead of Winter Storm to hit State:

“A state of emergency has been declared for the following North Georgia counties: Catoosa, Dade, Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Habersham, Lumpkin, Murray, Pickens, Rabun, Towns, Union, Walker, White and Whitfield. The order notes that in these counties forecasts call for ice accumulation and moderately high wind gusts that could bring down tree limbs. In an effort to minimize the number of afternoon commuters, I have directed state agency heads to close state offices in the 15 affected counties as well as on Capitol Hill, with the exception of all essential and emergency personnel. State employees in these areas are encouraged to telecommute. ” -Gov Deal

Atheist Parolee Receives Nearly $2,000,000 After Being Punished for Refusing a Religious Drug Treatment Program

Barry Hazle, one of the very few atheists in prison cells, was imprisoned for drug possession. A crime open to debate if it should even be illegal, but anyway, after he was released and put on parole (in California) he was re-arrested for asking for a secular treatment program for his addiction, instead of the religious  Narcotics Anonymous.

Even though he was attending these classes while asking his parole agent to get a secular class, he was arrested during one of the meetings.

He got a hefty settlement for this illegal imprisonment.

If Christians had to attend treatment centers based around the Islamic Quran or Allah, or readings of atheist books, I think they would be unhappy.

Well atheists don’t like the government forcing them to participate in Christian (or religious in general) activities.

By the way, I hope this probation agent was fired soon after, but he probably still is working that job.

I will be friends with Bethany forever. She is one of the most generous, kind, and genuine people I know. Her smile lights up a room and her laughter is contagious. We met in college and it doesn’t matter how long it’s been since we’ve talked or seen each other - it never seems like any time has passed. I love that about our friendship. 

I had the honor of photographing Bethany and Louie’s wedding. My friend was SUCH a beautiful bride. The love that Bethany and Louie share is so special. You could see and feel it all throughout the day! More photos to come, but here are some of my favorites! Enjoy!


So I applied to two schools that are complete polar opposites. The first is Georgia Southern and the second is Northern Michigan.

I know… Crazy.

But honestly I’m kinda worried about GSU. I know Georgia doesn’t have a medical marijuana law and I don’t even know anyone there that I could trust to get weed from.

Now NMU is easy. Michigan has a medical marijuana law. I can get it in any part of Michigan no problem.

I really wanna go to GSU but NMU is looking better.. Even with all the snow.
