Okay kiddos....I'm behind on the posting again, but I'm sure you'll understand why when you see what I did on the 15th. :)
The first shot was taken on January 9th. Nothing makes me feel all warm and cozy like a fire in the wood stove. There is just something about wood heat. It warms me like no other. I also like the feeling of accomplishment that washes over me when I get a fire started....and it really begins to ROAR!
The second shot was taken on January 10th, which was a pretty special day around here. Hard to believe that my little Sugar Bear is 6 years old. sigh.......I'm one lucky lady.
The third shot was taken on January 11th. This shot simply reflects how busy I've been, and how I accidentally let the entire day go by without picking up my camera. I then find myself roaming around the house looking for something....anything...to take a picture of. This little zebra is a magnet Sugar Bear got from the elves in her advent this year.
The fourth shot was taken on January 12th. 6 year well child exam day. This makes me smile. I am so very grateful for Sugar's health. We are so very blessed. She has only gone to see her doctor once per year....since she was 3. I love that. I read several blogs where the children are so very ill.....and it makes me realize that I should NEVER take Sugar's health for granted. I need to be fully aware of the blessing her health is. I am grateful for this reminder.
The fifth shot was taken on January 13th, and oh......how I adore this shot. OH.MY.HEAVENS......this girl melts my heart. I was playing around trying to get THIS SHOT, and Sugar wanted in on the game. She fashioned this "look" and posed for the shot. She is a gem.
The sixth shot was taken on January 14th when I traveled 4.5 hours from home, and spent the evening with family. This photo is of my Aunt Sharen holding one of her precious grand children. I do not see this part of my family often enough, and this particular evening reminded me that I need to be sure that I do not let too much time pass before I visit again.
The seventh shot was taken on January 15th. This was a BIG, BIG, HUGE day for me. I stepped on an airplane for the first time in almost 9 years. I got on that plane and flew quite nearly from coast to coast....all alone....by myself. EEEKKKK.....It was a huge step for me. I will admit that I cried.....during take off. I felt this extreme emotion at the thought of going so very far from my Sugar Bear. However, it was a wonderful flight, and it took me on an adventure I won't quickly forget. It reminded me that life is too short to always stay at home....and validated for me that an "Internet Friendship" is no less of a friendship than a "Real-life Friendship". In some cases....it might very well be MORE. ♥ More about my trip in the next "my week" post. I promise.
