Extreme Close Up with Sophie

It is only fair that I post a pic of my other beloved baby, Sophie ~ after my previous post of Thompson. These are the two little furries that make our house a home!

My ride to work this morning was like driving through a Winter Wonderland ... We received approx 20 + inches of snow yesterday ... Just beautiful ... I have to admit, I like looking at it better from indoors, but once the roads are clear it is always beautiful to drive around seeing the snow blanketing the neighborhood ...

Thompson Up Close

Here we are - 2 Days after Christmas and we had close to 20 inches of snow - Beautiful to look at, not so beautiful to drive in - Lucky we are home - Hubby and I along with our 2 cats - (Thompson pictured here ... I call this his Portrait Studio Shot (even thought he was just posing for Mommy!) & Sophie) took a Snow Day (as they say ...) - They found the new warm blanket that we got for Christmas and took a nice long nap on it - We had some yummy lasagna and the day flew by ...

Day After Christmas

It is the day after Christmas ~ We had a nice visit with my folkes on Christmas Eve and we spent Christmas morning with my husbands side visiting and then the afternoon with mine ... Always nice to be all together!

I purchased a Canon Powershot today ... I am anxious to receive it ... I would like to do the 365 Project - Taking a picture a day for a year ... I think I would like to see what pics I have collected after a project like this ...

Hoping all my family & friends enjoyed a joyous holiday weekend!

This is what I hope for my family and friends this holiday season - JOY! This is an ornament on my tree that I like to find each year while unwrapping each ornament like it is Christmas Morning ... A mystery until they are fully unwrapped to see which one it is ...

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve ~ Wishing my family & friends a Happy Holiday Season!

Light Between the Trees

I picked this photo (that I took many Fall Seasons ago) for today's post because during the past few weeks I have been doing research to unleash my creative ways ... Through photography and poetry ... To change up my photography style a bit, change up my writing style ... I named this photo "Light Between the Trees" and it always makes me realize that I am meant to hold a camera ... Meant to live in that moment ... Meant to be one with nature ... This is where I belong ... Nice to have found my quiet place ...

Even though snow was falling on my ride home tonight - I still wanted to go with a Fall photo ...
My favorite season ...

Antiques & Traditions

Today had me thinking of "The Old Days" - Antiques, Rag dolls, Attic treasures Etc - It is Christmas Week, so I always get a little nostalgic during this time of the year - Thinking of my Grandmother, the traditions we used to have - Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Day ... How things have changed since her passing ... How some things have stayed the same ...

I look forward to Friday and Saturday when we get to see our families ... Always nice to be together!

Angels Above Us

The first snowfall this evening on my way home has me thinking that we may have a White Christmas, after all. The angel attached to this email symbolizes the loss of Al's Mom during this holiday season. I am hoping she is no longer suffering and she is at peace.

It is hard to believe that 2010 will be coming a close soon ... I hope 2011 brings health & happiness to my family and friends ...

1 Year Anniversary - The Beginning

Today marks our 1 Year and 1 Month Wedding Anniversary - I am thinking it would have sounded better to start on my blog on our 1 Year Anniversary, but I just recently came upon Liz Lamoreaux's INNER EXCAVATION which has fueled my creatives juices ... Thanks, Liz!

I received Liz'z book over the weekend, and I have been enjoying it. I hope to purchase a small Canon Powershot to start carrying around with me - So I do not miss out on any photography opportunities while I am out and about!
