The purpose of this page is to challenge me to open my eyes and truly see the world which surrounds me. So often we trudge though our daily routine, too busy or preoccupied to notice the little miracles happening all around us. I hope to capture, through the lens of a camera, glimpses of my sometimes mundane but glorious little world. I will attempt to post one snapshot each day to share with you. Enjoy!
This is the waterfall feature at the school bus stop just up the hill. Everybody around us (and even those who are close by) is talking about their snowfall and I'm just green with envy! Where's my snow?!?! It's just been too cold. Instead of powdery white blankets we have ice covered rocks and waterfalls. It's beautiful. But, shhhh.... I think it's snowing right NOW! I even saw a snow plow at the store!
My treat for completing one of the more difficult races I've ever participated in. The Grinch half marathon trail race with rough, frozen terrain and temps as low as 19*. Thanks Julie Sams for keeping honest and moving! Congrats to you for finishing your first half! Great way to kick off my 25 day challenge with Kristin English Sharp starting tomorrow!
Every December Gig Harbor High School hosts the craft fair and fundraising event 'Tide Fest". Over 50 artisans from around the state come to sell their wares for the holidays while many of the school clubs sell various foods. Since the boys are involved with the French club, we helped out here. Pain au chocolat anyone?
This is the first year in 15 years in which we've had a real tree for Christmas. That means it's the first real tree ever for both Nate and Sam and Zach was too young to even remember a real one. Here they are doing all the work of decorating. I still had to go back and adjust later, but they're getting pretty good at this.
