The first shot was taken on December 19th........love the pretty heart bokeh!
The second shot was taken on December 20th when I was capturing even more shots for a local physical therapy office.
The third shot was taken on December 21st while I was on an extremely stormy drive along the coast. I was bummed to have such ugly weather that day, but I have to admit that I think the ocean is beautiful no matter what the weather.
The fourth shot was taken on December 22nd at my neighbor's house, during our gingerbread house making party. BEST DAY EVER!
The fifth shot was taken on December 23rd. I had so much to get done before Christmas, and Sugar spent the day playing by herself. She isn't a fan, but did a good job keeping out of my hair.
The sixth shot was taken on December 24th. Christmas Eve......leaving out the cookies for Santa.
The seventh shot was taken on December 25th. I'm not sure if you can tell or not...but was pretty excited about opening presents. ♥

I mentioned a few weeks back that our area got a bit of snow, and I took full advantage of the two days it was here. One never knows if snow will emerge again in the same winter season, so you have to make sure and enjoy it while it lasts.
Luckily, I ALWAYS have my camera with me, so I was able to take a break from my work, and head outside for some fun. The time I had was brief, but I think I spent it well.
There is just something so fascinating about snow. I don't live where it snows often, so I find myself thoroughly enthralled with it when it's here. If I had to deal with it day in and day out, I'm sure I'd feel differently.
Whenever I have the privilege of watching snow fall, I get this incredible sensation that somehow time is slowing down......almost as if the earth is literally ceasing to spin. Everything seems to be in slow motion. I adore this feeling. I could just stand there and watch the flakes gently float to the ground all day.
While watching the snow make their way to the ground is a favorite pastime, photographing it as it accumulates on anything BUT the ground is a passion. What fun I had walking around looking for little piles of snow on the fence, trees, and bushes.
Snapping away....finding new angles to look at it.......letting the light shine in.
What a moment to treasure. For a minute, I wasn't at work......I wasn't responsible for anything....I wasn't hurrying to the next thing. I was just THERE......and just ME.
I was just so very blessed. What an amazing world in which we live. I love that I can have those moments, and capture them so that I might never forget......
Just how lucky I am! LIFE IS GOOD!
