a little ride

We took a little ride around the beach the other evening. It was cool outside, so the only thing we found was peace...and quiet. The very thing we were looking for.

peace.....and quiet

Everything moving at a snail's pace, even the water and sunset. Holding hands with my love, the kids eating ice cream cones, and me trying to soak it all in before night settles on us.

on its way

on its way

it really is!

i was walking out of the library yesterday and was about to get in the car when these trees, absolutely full of tiny pink blossoms, caught my eye. even with all the coooold weather we've had this winter these trees were not discouraged. i was so happy to see these little blossoms....spring is definitely in the air!

i'm trying to slow down just a bit this week

(remembering to be mindful)

since the last two weeks have gone by in a blur

and very few clicks of the shutter.

i did take a moment to grab a few shots for this

week's self-portrait. it seems that every week i almost

dread turning the camera around, but after i do

i feel glad that i did. it's an oddly funny, revealing,

healing thing - this sp journey.

Snow Day!

It's me...and a little dusting of snow on our "snow day" here in Alabama - and I mean very southern AL! Our neighbors about an hour to the north got several inches, but we had to be satisfied with a few minutes worth of flakes. At any rate, it's a big deal down here when this happens and I'm just glad that my kids at least got to see a little snowfall.

give it wings

“The quickest way to receive love is to give,
the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly,
and the best way to keep love is to give it wings”

i'm starting a 52 week self portrait project for myself once again. i participated in the self portrait challenge group at flickr for a year, but have fallen out of the groove. although i'm scared to death of seeing "me" in photos, i do miss the weekly reminder of who i am....and i think my kids will really appreciate these photos in the years to come. so, for as long as i can stand to publish the photos i'll be here in some form or fashion once a week. as i give up some things this year and add new things into my life, i think these weekly reflections will be just what i need to keep my momentum going in the right direction.
