Weekly Photo Challenge: Ready

I am ready for warmer weather to return to the mid-west.  I am ready to be out doors and enjoying sunshine.  I am ready for the pretty flowers that make my yard prettier to return.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hope


Hope for me is my daughter, Hayden.  We formed a team in the Apraxia walk this fall called “Hope for Hayden” I have hope that one day she will speak like other kids her age and that she will no longer be so far behind her peers because of her apraxia.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

Chapel of the Trasfiguration in Grand Teton National Park.  A place where you could sit outside and stare at the mountains or find peace inside the chapel.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch

Nothing says launch to me like fireworks.  I love fireworks and will take any opportunity to see some especially outside of the 4th of July holiday.  This past October I got a real treat and got to see fireworks at Disney World (my first time there) with the Castle in view.  Unfortunately I didn’t have a DSLR camera at the time and the best I could get them was with my iphone, my point and shoot was sub par on this task.  I can’t wait to go back especially now I have my DSLR camera that I received for Christmas.

There are quite a few pictures here.  This is what I was able to narrow down the tons that I took down to my favorites.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter

I chose this image of one of my favorite places in the world especially in winter Steamboat Springs, CO.  I love this place! I loved to ski here when I was younger (haven’t been on skis in awhile).  And it is beautiful in the summer as well.  Haven’t been there in awhile, my sis did a stint living there but has since moved back to the flatlands and just haven’t found a reason to go.  I actually had to dig this photo out of photo boxes and scan it in as it was pre-digital cameras. I am hoping to get out there sooner rather than later!
