Spring in January

January 13, 2013  •  3 Comments

As much as I love the snow, the rush of warm air in the middle of January makes me giddy like a child. The first taste of Spring Fever is always the best feeling and it usually sends me searching for my running shoes. But we know that winter is still here and hopefully there will be many more snow days to come.

I couldn't pass up the chance to go walking with my camera. I tracked down my son and his buddies to capture their excitement of being outside again in t-shirts and shorts.

That would be my son in the tank top. I'm not sure it was quite warm enough for that but I gave up long ago trying to keep him dressed in appropriate clothes. I rousted my daughter and her friend outside too. Feel their freedom of running barefoot!

I love this picture of Ella running towards me, her arms out of focus blurring into the background.

Sometimes its the blurry photos that catch my eye the most.

When did my daughter become so grown up? My love!

May the forces unite!

Thank you to Marian for allowing the world to see you without makeup. Isn't she a beautiful mama? If we pretend hard enough, we can imagine that we see a beach here instead of a gravel road.

The wonderful world of background textures. A big Thank You to one of my favorite blogs for inspiring the use of textures and other Photoshop tricks. http://paintthemoon.net/blog This website is an excellent resource for beginners like me. Check it out.

Every day is an opportunity to be creative! Capture life today! Thank you, kids for being yourselves.
