Thank you so much for those of you who have nominated a person/family for my give-away below. The stories I've gotten so far have been heart-wrenching reminding me how important it is to give to others and to give often. There's still time to send more nominations - just make sure you send them to firstname.lastname@example.org telling me your nominations story, their name and your contact information. I'll be posting the results on Christmas Eve (after obtaining permission from the recipient).
I love mornings like this morning. I woke up to deep mystical fog outside my window. I love the quiet, calm feeling fog brings - everything seems to slow down a bit. It's almost as good as snow (I love snow and have been so jealous that my family and friends in Seattle are seeing snowfall - I miss it and Tyler does too). Anyway, after I dropped the kids off at school I rushed home to get my camera and set out to take a couple of quick pictures before heading back home to packaging orders. Here's some of what I captured today. I haven't had time to look at all of my images just these few. The second image I played around with my two of my homebrewed processings to give the image a different look.
Image below: I drive past this old tree and decayed shack every day. Something about this path takes me to another place. I'll even take the 'long route' just to get another glance at my lonely, beautiful tree an the long narrow path.
