Just a Small Town Girl

..don't stop believing!  This song gets me singing very loudly every time.  It's one of my top favorite songs and it fits me pretty well.  Hi, I'm Lacey.  I'm the editor for The Yard Rake this semester.

I grew up in the country surrounded by small towns in Eastern Nebraska.  The town to the east had a population of around 300, and to the west, a town with around 50 people.  To the northwest was a town with about 2,500 people, where I went to school and graduated from in 2007.  From there, I went on to study Graphic Design in Milford through Southeast Community College.  During college, I met a man who [at that time] I never thought I would be married to!  I graduated in 2009 from SCC and a few years later got married to my cowboy and moved to the Sand Hills.

A few years ago, I started my own Graphic Design and Photography business.  I have designed logos, business cards, posters and much more for friends, family, coworkers and some acquaintances.  I redesigned the banner at the top of the page here for this blog!  My last post was some of my photography that I took early this summer at a friend's branding.  I really enjoy the photography side more than the design side, but I still like them both!

I want to share with you my favorite photograph I took while I was at SCC.  It is the original and has not been edited at all. It was featured in SCC's Illuminations book that is published with students' work. Enjoy!
