Frosty

Frosty

We woke up to a picturesque landscape this morning. Everything was miraculously painted with beautiful frost. It looked like an Ansel Adams photograph outside, but it was that much more incredible, because it was real life. On the way to school, the kids and I talked about how it was like God, in the middle of the night, took a tiny paintbrush and painted everything with white frost. To look like feathers, my kindergirl added. So lovely. Also on the…

Fall Nature Walk & Some Random Notes

Fall Nature Walk & Some Random Notes

It was a beautiful fall day on Sunday. So, we bundled up a bit and went on a fall nature walk. We live near a nature center, even though we’re very close to the city, too.

Florida Flowers on Friday

Florida Flowers on Friday

While I was in Florida for my step-dad’s funeral, I took a bunch of photos of various flowers and trees so that my older girls could get a visual in their heads of what it looks like at Gram’s. (We haven’t been there in four years; it was usually easier for them to visit us.) I am enjoying these photos just as much as they are, as spring is still a long way out for us here in the Upper…
