One Snowy Night

January 21, 2011
I don’t know if I like this photo or not. On Christmas Night, my husband and I were driving home from my parents house. There were threats of snow, so we thought it best to get home safely before the roads got too covered. On our way home, we may a quick decision to get Chinese takeout – we had some leftovers, but wanted to be sure we had plenty of food in the event that we couldn’t get out the next day. This is all a moot point considering that while the roads were covered the next day, my husband still decided to drive over to Walmart the next morning to get the proper...

Winter

January 14, 2011
Thank goodness it’s FRIDAY!!! Even with an ice day (because we didn’t get much snow), I feel like this week has really been a drag. But enough of my complaining.  I thought I’d share another photo from the shots I took on Saturday when we received a “touch of snow.” I followed my exact steps from yesterday’s edit and I’m really loving this recipe.

With that said, we’ll go back to your previously scheduled ramblings. On Tuesday, I shared with you the Christmas present that we gave Carter – the Chicken Dance Elmo. It was a huge hit…for all of 5-10 minutes. Why? Because he is...

Snowy Day in the Country

December 31, 2010
I’ve passed this small barn many a time on one of the country roads by our house, but I’ve never taken the time to stop and photograph it. However, the moment we turned on the road…all I could see was an old postcard and I quickly told my husband to stop – I just love when I have a vision of the final product like that. It’s amazing how everything looks so quiet and peaceful covered in snow.ISO 100, f/5, 1/400 sec.
