i can’t help myself.

A couple more.  Sorry if my photo posts are getting old…it’s what I am looking at, so I thought it is what you should look at too :)

We tried to leave today to go to the grocery & post office.  We were unsuccessful.  Justin & my dad are heading out for an overnight at a church tonight, so I am having a sleepover with my mom.




I promise to ease up on my winter photos…

oops, I just said that and now I have to run outside…you should see what the sun is doing through the ice…but knowing me, you will :)  Gotta grab my camera!  Bye for now!

Snowed in! or…out…

Yep, it’s true, we are snowed in our little paradise…but we can’t complain, we never lost power – just internet, but I am back for now…until it goes out again :)

It really is beautiful and we are loving it.  Justin has been out of school 3 days (and now tomorrow), and we have just been keeping warm in our little hide-away.  It’s so pretty here.  We are actually stuck here.  The driveway was cleared today, so I think a substantial vehicle will do alright, but ours aren’t going anywhere.  That’s ok though, we’re cozy!

I do have a pretty fun story though.  Of course when we get weather like this, it is a given that I am going to go out and photograph…try and stop me!  So yesterday around 2:30 (just when the sky was a pretty blue) I headed out to take some photos.  Justin followed and slammed the door shut…normally this wouldn’t be an issue…if our door didn’t automatically lock, or if either of us had keys or a cell phone…but it was an issue.

If you have been following the blog at all you know that I brag about the fact that I live in one of the most amazing places ever.  Well, one of those great aspects…we see nature, everywhere…no houses.  Yep, you guessed it, we don’t have very close neighbors.

So off we went. I’ll keep the details short, but basically it was 3:30 before we arrived at a house that we could call from…now, it’s not that far, but I didn’t have on snow/ice appropriate footwear, and we had to go to a few different houses.  Luckily we ended up at the Lloyd’s house (well, Byron’s mother Jane’s house…that’s where they were).  You may remember the Lloyd’s from my recent photo shoot with them.  The truly are the very best neighbors (although we aren’t right next door) and we are blessed to live close to them.  Jane, Bryon, Molly, Erin & Malachi – Thanks for letting us visit with you!

My parent’s went on a key run and showed up to drive us back (well, to the end of the driveway) and put us back where we belong.  We were warming up by the fire around 4:30.  It may have bothered some people, or me on a bad day, but honestly, we had a great time and the best part…I took pictures in places I wouldn’t normally!  So all in all, it was a great day!

Here are photos from yesterday & today.


I love this portrait of our house:


This was one of the good things about having to walk.  I have starred at the woodpile every time I drive by it, always wanting a photo…well, I got my photo.  *notice the color gradation…love it.


Favorite shot of the day.





On our way to find help…


I was cleaning off the car, and thought this was a good illustration of what we got.  There is what I call, crunchy slush (2 inches), then an inch of ice…then 3 inches of snow….and I hear there is more on the way… img_3051

Ok, I have a million things to do, so I better get busy.  Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
