Days after my last post in November, I very unexpectedly (and dramatically) lost my mom. Everything shut down for me, and this blog was on that "everything" list. To say life is forever changed is an understatement, but in the past 6 weeks I have started to heal. Some of the healing was forced upon me because we immediately inherited my mom's 9 month old Great Pyrenees puppy, Georgie, and she doesn't allow time for sadness lol. Life has been...busy. But, with a new year approaching quickly, new energy in our house and a new idea and direction for this blog, I am back. For the time being I want to post mostly photos. I have found playing around with my camera to be lots of fun, and pretty relaxing. I am learning along the way, but I hope to be able to post some decent pictures through this year. Last night we got our first snowfall, so today we had a snow photoshoot!
