Winter Storm: Athena…

Winter storm, Athena, barreled through New Jersey and the Northeast this week. More power outages, downed trees, winds, and this time SNOW.. about 7 inches to be exact. Its been a crazy 2 weeks here in NJ. Fingers crossed that this isn’t a preview of how rough our winter will be! 

The upside… the snow was beautiful first thing in the morning 🙂

Been away for a week…

We just got back from spending 5 days in Walt Disney World. I tried to challenge myself to look for photos that I have not taken before. Doesn’t sound like a tough thing to do, does it? Well, it was tough!  This time I just tried to look for different perspectives/angles/etc…I found a few 🙂

Stormy sunsets…

A stormy sunset in Wild Wood Crest, NJ. It was almost monochromatic, which I love just as much as the intense colorful sunsets. Something about this scene makes me think of Quint and Captain Brody taking the Orca out on a fishing trip! Something about the look of the boat.. ahh, one of my favorite movies!

A Quote that has become stuck in my head…

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss

I’m surprised that I haven’t heard this one before! I love this quote. It may become my favorite. You can relate this to any number of things, and in each case, it is 100% true. What does it mean to you?

 

Highlighted clouds…

 

Today is gloomy. Lucy and I ran a few quick errands and, luckily, made it home just before the big storm. Thunder and lightening galore! I’m enjoying watching the rain out my back windows, but fingers crossed the day ends with some clouds like these. An exclamation point to the end of the day!
