French toast and flurries

French toast and flurries

Mother Nature surprised me this morning. With spring buds blooming, a soft snow cascaded down and rested on the delicate petals. Winter and spring are duking it out. One reticent to leave.

Peek-a-boo

Peek-a-boo

It’s a dark, rainy morning. As I sit at this glowing computer screen surrounded by dim light, a sudden rush of hard-pounding rain hits the roof above me. When I close my eyes, I can imagine myself transported somewhere else. To a bright summer day at the car wash. Sitting in the drivers seat as buckets … Continue reading

Sunday, prep day

Sunday, prep day

I hesitate to share this photo of my fridge with you. It’s clearly a first-world fridge filled with food. But this is the reality of my life, so for history’s sake this is a true account of how I live. Every (well, mostly) Sunday I grocery shop for the week, and then I prep the food in … Continue reading

Funny how a little sunshine changes everything

Funny how a little sunshine changes everything

Light is photography, right? So, what happens when you stand in the exact same spot at two different times during the day? The light has changed. How does that change the photo? Let’s take a look. You may recognize some of these photos from the other day. They originally appeared in my Reflections post. A few … Continue reading
