This photo says it all!
The trees behind the house look short because they are growing up out of the canyon behind our house.
This morning I went out and snapped a few photos of the trees because as I sat on the porch this morning I watched the leaves start falling. It was quite cloudy this morning, but I tried to get a few good shots anyway.
God sure knew what he was doing!
Not long ago, a couple of friends and I went to the Wichita (Kansas) Zoo. We had heard great things about it, and had to go check it out for ourselves. We saw all kinds of cool animals, and exhibits. Our favorite thing of the day was the fruit bats, they were crawling from tree to tree and kind of showing off for us.
But, then we saw this dude.
He is in a Disney movie.
It's May, and we have snow in the forecast. I know we live in Okla-freaky-weather-homa, but this is crazy!
All of these photos were taken during our last snow, which might have been the prettiest snow ever!
That is the feeling that comes over me when I look back on these photos.
As I sat here going through all of my photos from this beautiful sunkissed, snow covered day I remember how McD came into the house and told me he wanted to drive me around to show me the pretty snow. He thought I might want to take some photos before it all melted away. I didn't want to at first, it was cold and I felt pretty good cuddled up on the couch. But I went.
I am thankful for the unbelievably beautiful world in which we live. I love capturing the beauty on film with my camera.
I am thankful for the different seasons. Not just Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, but the different seasons of our lives, as well.
And lastly, I am thankful for the wonderful man I married. I am thankful that he encourages me to step out into the world, soak it all in, and capture the stills. He encourages me to be me, and loves me for me. He is my rock.
It was so nice to see a little color out in all those flurries.
Guess I should get back to what I was working on. 🙂 I have a couple of PinTests to share with ya. And I really, really want to get into the kitchen and try something else.
Do you see anything pretty out your window? Do share!
New Year's Resolutions? Yay or Nay?
Usually my answer would be, Nay. Not this year! This year my list is chock full of resolutions! Honestly, I like the term "goals" much better.
A few years ago, one of my resolutions goals was to take a photo every day, and post it on a special page. It didn't work out to well. This year I have modified it a bit. My goal is to take a photo each week, and post it here. I am calling it 52 Pix. At the end of 2013 there will be 52 pix (photos) in that category. That is my goal.
I am starting the 52 Pix project with a photo of Pepper.
Join in on the fun! Just leave a comment here that you plan to participate. If you don't have a blog use Instagram with the hashtag #52pix. Not on Instagram? (you really should be) Email the pix. I can't wait to see your pix!!
