8/6/2017 - Overlooked Beauty

I think what I like best about photography is being able to take a step back to see the myriad tiny bits of glory all around us. I'm not talking about the Grand Canyon or Niagra Falls, which, of course, both are amazing. I'm talking about the little things: dew on the grass glistening in the golden early morning sunlight, this plant sending tendrils winding up the fence to get more light or how a heavy rain pounds patterns onto your windshield that disappear in a moment. These are the things we often take for granted, things we should be thankful for and things we often are just going through our day too quickly to appreciate.

8/1/2017 - Borrowed Green Thumb

Helping a friend tend their garden this week and I've gotten some delicious fresh produce out of the deal. Tonight's dinner rocked home grown cucumber, bell pepper and tomatoes. Delicious!

"Duck! Get in the pool!" - Clearly he doesn't understand the power of saying please... 🤣

7/27/2017 - Heron in Flight

Saw a heron during a short walk I had to take for work. He flew away before I could get close enough to take a closeup though. Too bad, he was pretty!

7/25/2017 - Swans Under the Clouds

Took a leisurely walk along the bike trail with the kiddo and my mom tonight. We saw these swans along the way; they seemed to be enjoying unseasonable cloudy and 60 degree weather just as much as we were!

7/9/2017 Big and Little

When the almost two year old wants to continue his nap in your arms, just take it for the gift it is. It's amazing how quickly they get "too big" for snuggles...

7/7/2017 Algae on Peacock Pond

Went to Wheaton today with G to attend a kids concert.  Not as successful an evening as I had hoped, but we did walk around the pond and this algae was making some pretty neat patterns.  Not the evening I expected, but we had a nice time together nonetheless.  #savoreverymoment
