A Nice Morning

I rarely get an opportunity to just go out and take some pics with my camera. Sunday morning though I was taking the dog out and the trees along the back of our complex mixed with the sky were just beautiful! I was in luck because it was a Sunday so Zach was home and could watch May while I went out and snapped (what a good husband huh). I've always loved snow pictures despite the fact that I hate the snow. Since getting this camera I've realized the reason good snow pictures are good is because they are edited. It's good to be in on the secret. Anyway here are a few of the fruits of my half hour of quiet time with the camera. It was so very nice.

Do you see the little black dots at the top leftish middle of this picture? They're birds! I didn't even notice them until I was uploading and I'm like, "How did this picture get spots on it?" I wish I had seen them so I could've gotten a better picture of them. about that "blizzard"? It was like nothing. It made me giggle in an annoyed way that all the schools closed down and people got off work early to get home. The reason for the annoyance is I still remember a few years ago (2008 maybe?) when there was that huge storm and it took me like 4 hours or more to get from Orem to Murray. I was actually even lucky to have made it home. If I had been about 20 mins later than I was I wouldn't have been able to go over the point of the mountain and probably would've spent the night at a church in Lehi somewhere. Worst drive of my life. Anyway, they didn't cancel school or work that time and it was way worse! Zach got home about an hour early though so I guess I can't complain to much.

My brother flew in last night for Thanksgiving. The army let them go home for a couple days if they paid their own way. I'm glad we got to see him another time before he ships out.

I can't believe that it's almost the end of November already. I'm not sure if I'm ready for the craziness of December! Zach has had us listening to Christmas music for a couple weeks now. It makes me happy because it's the only time of year he sings along to songs at the top of his lungs.


  1. beautiful pictures! hope you have a great holiday!

  2. Love your pictures, Danny! SO pretty. Snow is nice to look at but not be in. bane of my existence. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Great pictures.

    I laughed at the "blizzard" as well. That storm a couple years ago was way worse and such a nightmare.

  4. I love those pictures! They're gorgeous. I was out taking some pictures that morning too, but they didn't turn out nearly as good. Have fun seeing your brother and eating that turkey!

  5. I love your pictures. BEAUTIFUL. Wish we were there to listen to Zach singing!
