winter birds

This morning was a cold one. I was up early to feed the cats and when I opened the living room
curtains I was delighted to see my holly tree covered in tiny birds hitting on the feeder. I grabbed my
camera and got a few good shots through the window. I have really fallen for bird watching.

january goals

winter blues

At the beginning of every new year I like to make a list of goals and resolutions for the whole
year and I always find it hard to stick to the list. It's overwhelming. I found this cool idea of monthly goal setting on this lovely blog. I've met Miss Natalie and she's a super talented photographer.
Her blog is a new fave of mine. So many inspiring words and photos. Check it out. is my first month of goals. I'm starting a little late, but I think I can get these done.
1. Get old photo of my mamaw and papaw framed and on the wall.
2. Join the PSNWA.
3. Finish at least one of the three books I'm reading!
I'm excited about this people. I think this will be something I can do.

I've gotten a few emails and messages from friends asking about my sweet Gypsy.
To those who asked...thank you so much for caring. It means a lot to me.
She is doing a little better. We have been weaning her off the oral steroids and giving her an inhaled steroid twice daily for her lung disease. We still don't have a diagnosis. Her repeat xrays last month still show no signs of lung cancer. She has good days and bad days with her breathing, so it's hard for me to call it. I will know when it's time though. I eat up every day I have with her. May sound weird to some, but she's my baby.
I love this photo I took of her in the morning light. My regal girl.

Instant Love

In April of 2012 I got my first iphone for my birthday. As soon as I left the store I downloaded the Instagram app and it was instant love. It's been cool having a camera with me at all times when I see something that catches my eye. I thought I would share a selection of some favorites I took in 2012.
I think 2013 is going to be an amazing one with more outdoors, camping, and roadtrips.
You know...the good stuff.
Hope everyone had a fun holiday season!
