I’m Back! – August 19th


So after a month off, and a very fun trip to Chicago, I’m back! I have so many images to share with all of you! I am refreshed and revived and ready to go again.

Have a blessed day!

PS: This image is from a couple weeks before I went to Chicago, but I just think it’s so beautiful I had to share. The lovely Chicago photos will start later today!

Before The Storm – January 8th


Really wanting to go back and take a photo of this place now, it is probably covered in snow, took this the day before we got more. What a beautiful place to walk among the trees and nature and just listen. I do so enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, although it really isn’t quiet when you are in nature. It is alive and active, full of sounds. Birds and rushing water and my footsteps in the snow. So much sound but so peaceful all at the same time.

Have a blessed day!

Fleeting Moments – January 7th


I just love this photo, I captured it on Sunday when my city was a ghost town. Everyone was huddled up in their warm houses, but I was standing on a bridge having extremely cold air blow my hair in my face. It was so beautiful when the sun broke through the clouds for a few fleeting moments and made all the snow glitter, even the flakes in the air. Dancing pieces of glitter. Glorious, I tell, just glorious. I could have stood there for hours.

Have a blessed evening!

The Weather Calls For Warm Boots – January 4th


Our weather of late has called for warm boots, but at least they are pretty. I have several pairs, all very useful when my goal for the next year is to grow my photography skills. So today was spent exploring in the woods near my house. The sounds of rushing water, wind through bare trees and the call of a eagle. So many colorful birds to, blue birds, cardinals and wood peckers. Fluttering about, calling to their mates. What a beautiful thing. Tomorrow more exploring, in the snow. This too is a beautiful thing…

Have a blessed day!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Beginning


What a Beautiful Beginning!

This weeks Weekly Photo Challenge is Beginning! And we had a beautiful beginning this morning.
You can find the Weekly Photo Challenge here.

The windows were letting in a beautiful golden glow this morning. Loved it! I love that feeling of a golden glow coming in my windows in the morning, helps me to wake up. And I think it is even more golden because we have snow on the group here.

Have a blessed day!

The Mist And All – December 26th


The Mist And All by Dixie Willson

I like the fall,
The mist and all.
I like the night owl’s
Lonely call-
And wailing sound
Of wind around.

I like the gray
November day,
And bare, dead boughs
That coldly sway
Against my pane.
I like the rain.

I like to sit
And laugh at it-
And tend
My cozy fire a bit.
I like the fall-
The mist and all.

Christmas Flurries – December 23rd


Merry Christmas Eve Eve!! We had pre-Christmas flurries today. They were so beautiful to watch fall softly to the ground. To sit and listen to the water rush pass from the snow and ice that has already melted. It wouldn’t be Missouri if it was almost 60 degrees one day and then 20 the next day with a wind chill. It was so cold but so worth it to just experience. It may not be a white Christmas but it was enjoyable.

Have a blessed day!
