So, it appears that winter has definitely arrived, albeit late. The one storm we had last weekend, which dropped a mere three inches at my house, laid over a foot of snow where our former cabin and my in-laws are. What's more is that there is yet another winter storm expected tonight! Of course I am excited. The meteorologist in me is eager to see how high the snow totals will creep up, the photographer in me is eager to plan another trip to take photos, and the mother in me is thinking about playing with Emily in the snow.
Every snow storm sparks some sort of excitement in me, as if the excitement from the days when I was little and waiting for the school closings to scroll across the screen is burning inside me. I don't miss a chance to enjoy a snow storm, just like the one this past weekend. As soon as I could I bundled Emily up and whisked her outside where I promptly took several photos to commemorate the first real snow this entire winter.
Don't even get me started on how cute she is in that pink snow suit. I just am very glad I have had a chance to use it before she outgrows it! A week ago I didn't know if we'd get any sort of snow this winter. Thankfully we did or I would have missed this adorableness.
Since the fresh snow fell on the weekend my morning could be spent driving the back roads with Shawn and Emily taking photos. Boy, did it feel good to get out with my camera! Its so darned hard between work and motherhood to find time to devote to taking photos let alone editing them. Somehow this weekend I managed both.
And to make my weekend even better I sold a print of another one of my photos. It has actually been a few months since I've sold a photo and I was beginning to feel sort of down about it. So, between the snow, taking some great new photos, having time to edit them, share them, and then selling another photo I feel quite uplifted. What great timing since my days have been long and full of responsibilities. Some how life always has a way of giving you what you need when you need it.
