This winter has definitely been mild, to say the least – yikes, kind of scary! I am a little bit sad for not experiencing the beauty of a snow fall, and have also missed wearing a lot of warm winter sweaters & scarves. Although, I think those of us in Georgia have, for the most part, been enjoying the sunshine & fall like weather…heck, we’ve had more than a handful of spring like weather and warmth! Today, though, is rather dismal and rainy. That being said, I thought it was a good time to follow up with a Winter Warm-up: Part II (this year’s Winter Warm-up: Part I ) – (Last year’s Winter Warm-up: Part I or Part II.)
The two beach pictures above feel very special to me. They capture my oldest who is a dancer at heart and I can ‘feel’ the movement. The latter of the two looks as though she is about to take flight…which, makes me think to the future, as well as reflect on the past & present…
The pieces that make a whole, sometimes are overlooked, and feel relatively insignificant. Truly these little pieces can bring you back to a place in time – in the blink of an eye. Little hands, feet, toes, eyes, lashes, lips, teeth, tippy toes…
Look who ALMOST fell asleep in the water! All that sun, fresh air, beach play…it had the poor girl wiped out (and denying to me she was tired)! 😛
The image below almost became a casualty of a hasty, momentary decision. My daughter’s face was speaking to me, but, it wasn’t exactly something I was ‘looking’ for. In the end, when I saw this particular picture up close for review, I saw very clearly, my mom and perhaps generations before her were there speaking through my daughter’s eyes, lips, nose…
Thank you for getting this far! 😉 That was another huge share! It was a nice long vacation though too! I wish it hadn’t been so long ago already, but, hey, photos give us the ability to relive them as often as we want!
So, I decided to ‘take the plunge.’ I went ahead and launched a website this weekend and followed it up with a facebook page. If you’ve been following my blog, I would absolutely love for you to hop on over and have a peek at the website and most certainly if you have a facebook page, then link up with me there too!
As always, thank you so much for following or stopping in!
btw, everything that was ‘tagged’ in this post can absolutely be found in my website, lots, here on this blog 😛
Since today is so overcast & gloomy here in Georgia, I thought I’d perk up us locals and post an array of cherry blossoms from our first days of spring. If some of you northerner’s can believe this, these pictures were taken in the very first days of MARCH! 😀
If you are interested in using any of the images you have seen here on my blog as artwork in your own home, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org & then please take a picture of ‘it’ & send it to me so I can see the ‘placement’ in your home! 🙂
